• In the maritime sector the training of personnel on ships and offshore installations, and especially its quality, is of great importance. Strict legal requirements and the increasing complexity of technical systems but also the trend to reduce crews lead to higher demands on this training.

    The already existing virtual training systems for the maritime sector so far are lacking widely applicable training environments. Developed at great expense they just cover but single training aspects, and due to high costs have not been introduced broadly on the market.

  • Nowadays, no patient is like the other. They differ in age, mother tongue, mental capacities, and also in their medical and disease-specific experience. In diagnosis and therapy doctors have to take these differences into consideration and to provide medical information in a comprehensible way. In fact, they are mostly lacking the time to keep their patients properly informed, and also the information provided by the patients in many cases is ambiguous. A medical patient profile can solve these problems.

    Computergraphik in der maritimen Wirtschaft

    Schiffe und Offshore-Anlagen sind Spezialprodukte mit hohen Anforderungen an Effizienz und Qualität im gesamten Produktlebenszyklus. Die Verwaltung und die Nutzung der komplexen und sehr großen Datenmengen sowie die Umweltbedingungen, denen diese Investitionsgüter ausgesetzt sind, erfordern maßgeschneiderte IT-Lösungen. Alle Prozesse, vom Entwurf über die Fertigung bis hin zum Betrieb, können durch Computergraphik wirksam unterstützt werden. Echtzeitfähige Visualisierungen und Bildverarbeitung sollen künftig Konstruktionen absichern, Wartungen und Reparaturarbeiten anleiten oder Kapitäne lotsen.

  • 3D Arile is a ZIM (Central Innovation Program for SME) funded research project. The core element of the project is the development of a novel augmented reality system using a head mounted display with see-through technology. This, in combination with a stereo near infrared (NIR) camera system and the fluorescent dye  indocyanine green (ICG), should form an intraoperative visualization tool that can be used to visualize and extract sentinel lymph nodes (SLN).
