Research focus
Advanced and Smart Sensors / Internet of Things


The research team deals with – primarily for the industrial and medical sectors – the application of photonics technologies for the procurement and evaluation of information.

The increasing miniaturisation and falling cost of optical sensor and camera systems are opening up a broad field of applications, for example in the area of the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.

The research fields of Optoelectronics and Image Processing complement one another perfectly: optoelectronics involves the design and construction of sensor and camera systems that deliver the raw data for the subsequent image processing. This allows for the development of advanced smart sensors.
