Focus of research

The focus of my research is on 3D scene analysis using multi-camera systems (ranged from stereo rigs to light filed camera systems) and other depth sensors (e.g. Time-Of-Flight cameras). To exploit the acquired data in an optimal fashion I apply methods from (multi) sensor fusion, knowing that "The whole is more than the sum of its parts".
Since October 2016 I take part in the European Training Network on Full Paralax Imaging ETN-FPI (see www.full-parallax-imaging.eu). To May 2017 I was supervising the project as representative of Raytrix GmbH Kiel. From July 2017 I take part as a member of the MIP work group.
For my doctoral thesis, finished October 2013, I've designed a SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) system, using stereo vision and inertial sensors. The task was to optimize the system models used in Iterated/Extended Kalman Filters, with regard to linearity and error modelling. Therefore new state parametrizations and tools for statistical analysis have been developed. By this, the filter is optimized to increase the long term stability, consistency and quality of the estimated parameters and their error estimate.
In the past, I was involved in a joint venture project, aiming at the development of a commercial navigation system. Multiple sensors were used, to gain comprehensive information of the systems navigation state. The project ended successfully in 2010.
From end of 2010 to 2012 I took part in the research project "MoSES", as a joint venture with "IBAK Helmut Hunger GmbH & Co. KG". Within this project a modular software framework has been developed, that allows for easily assembling specialized software for multi sensor fusion.


In the past I supported Prof. Dr.-Ing. Koch in lecturing multimedia communications. This lecture is especially designed for the international degree program digital communications. It deals with analyzing visual as well as aural perception, i.e. for signal-compression (MP3, JPEG etc.).
Beside that, I've supervised various bachelor- and master/diploma-thesis’.
