Threedy is a spin-off from Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Darmstadt, Germany. It has now raised early-stage venture capital to commercialize its instant3Dhub platform. This platform primarily supports visualization, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications, and will initially serve companies in the automotive, aerospace and energy industries, as well as users of building information modeling (BIM) solutions.
As every year, the Computer Graphics Night was looking for the brightest minds in visual computing - but this year in an unusual form: The event had to take place completely virtually. The award ceremony took place nevertheless and the jury, consisting of scientists of the Fraunhofer IGD and chairs associated with the institute, chose this year's winners in the usual way. We congratulate once again and thank the numerous guests, who have given us a wonderful winter evening also in the 22nd edition.
We congratulate Biying Fu on the successful defense of her PhD thesis "Sensor Applications for Human Activity Recognition in Smart Environment"!
The “Internet of things”, typically known for its use in manufacturing and logistics, can utilize its strengths in this domain as well by assisting the elderly and allowing them to live in their own homes for as long as possible. How well it works has been demonstrated by the EU project “ACTIVAGE”, in which Fraunhofer IGD was involved.
We congratulate Christian Altenhofen on the successful defense of his PhD thesis "Volumetric Subdivisions for Efficient Integrated Modeling and Simulation"!
A new Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft research group at the Baltic Sea is developing underwater applications for more sustainable use of the ocean by humans. In their first project, researchers are exploring the issue of microplastics in the ocean.
Fraunhofer institutes IGD and IOSB visualize infection data with emphasis on places and times of infection.
POCUS4Covid19 is a new type of software designed to make it easier for doctors to monitor a course of COVID-19 in a patient. To do this, the software automatically analyzes predefined indicators in ultrasound images of the lungs, making an evaluation easier.
Functionally graded materials allow components to be optimized to meet requirements. This is why researchers at Fraunhofer IGD are using the application GraMMaCAD to elegantly and intuitively define material distributions in CAD models. Together with multi-material 3D printing, there now exist new possibilities for meeting more complex component requirements.
