Exploiting Context in Remote Sensing Object Detection

Status: open Supervisor: Sebastian Zambanini Problem Statement Detecting and classifying objects in remote sensing images is a challenging task, since the objects’ optical signature is less discriminative  due to the small resolution. Common object detection methods in this area aim to find object locations by classifying local structures, while neglecting the larger surroundings of the … Continue reading Exploiting Context in Remote Sensing Object Detection

3D Reconstruction of Ancient Bronze Mirrors

Contact: Simon Brenner With over 3000 known examples, Etruscan mirrors form one of the largest object groups in Etruscan art. The majority are metal (mostly bronze) discs with handles whose polished obverse served as a mirror while the reverse was often embellished with engraved and/or chased figures. The old-fashioned way of documenting these objects is … Continue reading 3D Reconstruction of Ancient Bronze Mirrors

Work place ergonomics: pose estimation by 3D sensing

Problem statement Work place ergonomics is the key factor of a healthy work place. Paying attention to ergonomic standards cannot only prevent back pain or postural deformity, but also vision problems and tensions. The existing 3D sensor fearless detects and tracks the position of an employee during the work and offers possibilities for improving the … Continue reading Work place ergonomics: pose estimation by 3D sensing

Bee data recording from a bee hive in Banja Luka

Problem Statement & Goal We developed a prototype for recording bees when entering the bee hive. The images are used to analyse bee images in various ways: mite detection, pollen quantity estimation, bee counting, … In this practicum we want to record new bee data in bee hives from our partner in Banja Luka. The … Continue reading Bee data recording from a bee hive in Banja Luka

Deep Learning Object Detection in Satellite Video

Status: available Supervisor: Roman Pflugfelder Problem Statement Object detection, i.e. the recognition and localization of objects, is very important in aerial imaging and remote sensing. Demanding applications can be found such as urban planning for smart cities, environment monitoring to reduce traffic and pollution. Object detection in aerial and satellite data is still challenging due to … Continue reading Deep Learning Object Detection in Satellite Video

Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts

Status: available Supervisor: Simon Brenner Problem Statement Multispectral Imaging (MSI) has proven a powerful tool to recover degraded texts in historic manuscripts. In this context, the goal of image enhancement methods is to take the raw multispectral images as input and produce and output image with maximal visibility/legibility of a degraded text. Fig. 1 shows … Continue reading Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts

3D Surface Structures of Ancient Manuscripts

Status: available Supervisor: Simon Brenner Problem Statement Naturally, historic manuscripts are valuable sources of information. However, not only the letters and drawings made with ink and pigments hold information, but also the three-dimensional structure of the material itself. Examples of interesting features are ruling lines or textual comments drawn with a hard tool (“hard point … Continue reading 3D Surface Structures of Ancient Manuscripts

Raiders of the Lost Writings – Investigating Ancient Manuscripts

Status: availableSupervisor: Simon Brenner Before continuing to read we strongly recommend to let this play in the background: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bTpp8PQSog Introduction Uncountable ancient manuscripts lie in archives, libraries, monastaries and haunted tombs around the world. Unfortunately, the centuries took their toll: due to unsuitable storage conditions, fire- or water damage, clumsy librarians or the recycling of … Continue reading Raiders of the Lost Writings – Investigating Ancient Manuscripts

Neuroimaging in Pigs

Supervision Georg Langs, Yason Yee, Karl-Heinz Nenning The Institute of Animal Welfare Science at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna (Vetmeduni) is currently offering a short-term research opportunity for motivated students. The candidate should be motivated to learn computational methods for the analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data of the brain in pigs. Project … Continue reading Neuroimaging in Pigs
