Thomas Heitzinger is a research assistant and PhD student at the Computer Vision Lab (CVL) at TU Wien. His research interests are 3D scene understanding and human behavior analysis using depth sensors and other non-RGB based visual sensors, as well as computer vision in the absence of strong textural information. At the moment he is working on the project MaLeStV which aims to support security personnel and reduce the number of safety-related incidents in Austrian prisons by using a 3D sensor to register critical movement and behavioral patters in real time.
