• In healthcare, there is a compelling need for integrating information from heterogeneous sources, unifying existing scattered modelling efforts, and translating the results into clinical practice. This applies in particular to paediatrics, in which therapeutic decisions have long-term consequences and where the foundation for a healthy adult life is laid.

  • 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.

  • Face recognition is an indispensable tool for police personal identification. The previous two-dimensional face recognition has faced some obstacles. This is especially the case if the identification of individuals in images or video sequences of crime scenes did not provide a well captured frontal face view.

  • Assuring the quality of individual biometric samples is crucial for maintaining the discriminatory power of biometric recognition systems as biometric data of low quality are likely to be mismatched. NFIQ stands for NIST Finger Image Quality software. It is widely recognized as a reference in fingerprint quality assessment. The NFIQ2 project develops a new and improved open-source version of NFIQ in consultation and collaboration with users and industry.

  • OceanView is a simple tool which converts gridded bathymetry data on-the-fly into interactive 3D seafloor models using standards like X3D and X3DOM. The results can be used on different systems, like immersive mixed/virtual reality environments or multi-touch tables. Thanks to the template-based generation pipeline it is also possible to create interactive 3D models for the web using HTML 5 techniques and without the need for plugins.

  • Smart cards are tamper-protected chip cards with microprocessor chip. They perform security-related functions such as

    • the authorization of bank transactions or
    • the creation of electronic signatures

    and store sensitive data.

  • OpenCapSense is a rapid prototyping system for designing and evaluating pervasive interaction systems based on capacitive proximity sensing. The platform was introduced in 2013 and employs state-of-the-art embedded processing capabilities with high extendibility. The whole system is licensed as open-source (hardware licensed under Creative Commons, software licensed under GPL v3), allowing researchers to experiment with capacitive sensing applications. Using OpenCapSense, one can obtain a spatial resolution of less than 1 cm at object distances of 35 cm.

  • OraMod is an EC-FP7-ICT project that starts from the need of researchers and clinicians in the field of oncology to improve the representation of biological processes related to onset, growth, dissemination and relapse of human cancer. The project specifically addresses the challenge of early prediction of relapses of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC), a disease with impressive effects on patients due to its invasiveness in face characteristics as well as speaking and eating ability.
