Institute at a glance

The focus areas of the Institute for Photonics and ICT (IPI) include applications and systems that are based on photonics as well as information and communication technologies. The activities and tasks of the institute cover the research fields of Optoelectronics, Image Processing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and ICT. Our skills in the areas of sensors, data recording and processing, language and data communication as well as web application development and visualisation complement one another perfectly here.

Expertise

Expertise

The research team of the Institute for Photonics and ICT deals with the application of photonics technologies for the procurement and evaluation of information.

The research fields of Optoelectronics and Image Processing complement one another perfectly: in the research field of Optoelectronics, sensor and camera systems are designed and constructed that deliver the raw data for the subsequent image processing. This allows for the development of advanced smart sensors. In combination with our know-how in the area of ICT and our research focus area of Big Data and Analytics, our institute thus possesses the required basic knowledge when it comes to issues and applications relating to the Internet of Things.
