Institutes and centers

Center for Robotics and Automation

The CRA (Center for Robotics and Automation) is a competence center jointly supported by the departments of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Computer Science, and Mathematics and Natural Sciences, which deals with research and development issues in the fields of industrial robotics and factory automation. These include the development of PLC-based automation technologies, elements for visualization and process control (WinCC) or the solution of safety issues in the field of robotics and automation.

DISO (Darmstadt Institute for Statistics & Operations Research) is the contact for statistics and operations research at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences.

We advise and support

  • students and teachers in research projects, doctoral theses and dissertations at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences
  • third-party funding and research projects with external cooperation partners
  • projects of the university administration and publications

Working Group Algorithms for Computer Vision, Imaging and Data Analysis

Sometimes the data measured does not directly give the information one is interested in; the measured data needs to be processed and the required information needs to be extracted.

The central topic of ACIDA (Algorithms for Computer Vision, Imaging and Data Analysis) is the development and application of algorithmic solutions to such kind of problems in Computer Vision, Imaging and related Data Analysis problems.
