The optimal acquisition and processing of information is an essential component of many industrial and scientific tasks, as only in this way can a situation-specific execution of complex automation tasks be guaranteed. Since nowadays many systems consist of distributed components, communication plays an equally important role.
At the Institute of Industrial Information Technology (IIIT), the complete information chain is considered - from measurement technology and signal processing to control and decision making. On the basis of current tasks, e.g. in the fields of automatic visual inspection and image processing, innovative methods are researched and solutions are implemented in practice.
Our courses provide students with cross-technological knowledge, which is in demand from traditional industrial companies as well as from information service providers. Our application-oriented projects offer students the opportunity to apply their acquired knowledge in current research topics in the context of diverse, interesting diploma theses and student research projects and to get in contact with our partners from industry and research.
On 14 November 2023, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Heizmann was awarded the VDI badge of honnor by the VDI/VDE Society for Measurement and Automation Technology. This is in recognition of his many years of voluntary work in the GMA. Prof. Heizmann has been active in various GMA committees since 2005, including Chairman of Technical Committee 1.21 " Bildverarbeitung in der Mess- und Automatisierungstechnik " (since 2006), Chairman of Technical Committee 1.11 " Grundlagen der Messsysteme " (2011-2020), Chairman of Technical Committee 8 " Optische Technologien" (2018-2021), Chairman of Technical Committee 1 " Methodik der Mess- und Sensortechnik " (since 2022), and member of the GMA Board (since 2021).
We congratulate Lanxiao Li on the successful completion of his doctoral thesis "Computational, Label and Data Efficiency in 3D Deep Learning". Congratulations!
During our autumn seminar in Oberstdorf, we had the opportunity to exchange scientific ideas. Presentations and discussions on the participants' topics gave us valuable inspiration for our own projects.
We congratulate Julia Hartung on the successful completion of her doctoral thesis "Machine Learning for Camera-Based Monitoring of Laser Welding Processes". Congratulations!KITOpen
We congratulate Johannes Anastasiadis on the successful completion of his doctoral thesis "Überwachte Methoden für die spektrale Entmischung mit künstlichen neuronalen Netzen". Congratulations!KITOpen
We congratulate David Uhlig on the successful completion of his doctoral thesis "Lightfield Imaging for Deflectometry". Congratulations!KITOpen
We are pleased that our paper "A Multispectral Light Field Dataset and Framework for Light Field Deep Learning" has been accepted for publication in the Open-Access Journal IEEE Access. In addition to the paper we are also publishing a new multispectral light field dataset and a Python framework for light field deep learning.Link
Prof. Puente deceased
We mourn the loss of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Fernando Puente León, who passed away unexpectedly for us on July 1, 2020.
Prof. Puente León has been head of the IIIT since 2008 and during this time has had a significant impact on the IIIT. Under his leadership, numerous research projects and doctoral theses in a wide range of topics in signal and image processing, metrology and human-machine interaction were carried out. In teaching at the KIT Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology he was responsible for several courses, among others "Signals and Systems" and "Measurement Technology". Beyond the KIT, he enjoyed an excellent reputation as a committed scientist, for example as editor of the journal "tm - Technisches Messen" and as author of several technical and textbooks.
We are dismayed by his death and will miss him. We will always remember him with his expertise and commitment, but also as a personal companion. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family.
The staff of the IIIT
