Institute at a glance

The Institute for Photonics and Robotics (IPR) has a fourfold performance mandate: teachingapplied researchconsulting and further education in the areas of photonics and robotics.

Our main teaching and research areas encompass the fields of Optoelectronics, Image Processing and Applied Robotics.

Expertise

Expertise

The team at the Institute for Photonics and Robotics focuses on the industrial application of photonics technology for gathering and evaluating information, as well as developing intelligent robots.

Our three research fields of Optoelectronics, Image Processing and Applied Robotics complement each other superbly.

We generate data using optoelectronic sensors. If these contain image sensors, the recorded data is processed further using image processing algorithms. If this recording of measurement parameters is combined with intelligent algorithms, so-called smart sensors can be created. These sensors can in turn be combined with actuator technology, drive technology, communication, navigation and energy technology to develop intelligent, autonomous and/or mobile robots.
