Three-dimensional printing is a modern and strongly expanding branch. In particular, there is a large interest in creating human sculptures from custom image sets. At the end of the project, a mostly automated tool for reconstruction of human busts from a small set of four to eight images was developed. This project is the application area for my Ph.D. research.
Traffic safety benefits largely from precise knowledge of the scene geometry dynamics in front of a moving vehicle. In the course of the project, a novel sensor was developed, which combines the gray value information of a HDR digital camera with the range information of a prototype of a TOF MDSI 3D-camera.
Elimination methods, in particular for the theory of the integers, are a promising tool in applied computer sciences. A prominent application example is the verification of semantics of computer programs and protocols. My implementation (context Integers) in the REDUCE package REDLOG is to my knowledge the only available open-source parametric elimination software for non-linear integer theories.
