Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation IOSB



The department "Interactive Analysis and Diagnosis" (IAD) develops assistance systems and intelligent, interactive environments. In cooperation with public clients, partners from the industry and other research institutions, we work on innovative solutions concerning issues in the fields of safety, medicine, automotive and production.

Our products and services focus on the following four research topics:

Perceptive user interfaces
Our video-based methods interpret pointing and hand gestures, human activities or even human gaze behaviour.

Decision support
Our assistance systems support people in their decision-making processes. We use methods and algorithms of artificial intelligence to extract relevant information from large amounts of data.

Interactive Systems
Our innovative human-machine interfaces guarantee a high level of usability of the systems.

Identity protection and management
The development of attentive environments and human-centred assistance systems often requires the processing of personal data. Our design methods ensure full compliance with data protection laws when developing new technologies.
