About the Doctoral College

The perception, interpretation and presentation of our environment using sensors and computer technology, in combination with related communication and visualization techniques, present research challenges of high importance and growing impact on our society. Related applications include automation tasks such as household robots or the autonomous navigation of wheelchairs, the huge multimedia market with innovations on the TV and mobile phone sectors (e.g., personalized/interactive video or TV), surveillance and security tasks, or the automated generation of 3D city models and virtual worlds from remote sensing data, to name just a few of them.

The doctoral college “Computational Perception” is intended to work on such problems by bringing together experts in the field of geoinformation/photogrammetry (precise measurements from images delivered by different types of cameras), in the field of computer science (image processing and computer graphics, algorithms and efficient implementation) as well as electrical engineering (object and scene perception, sensors and displays) and telecommunication (multi-sensor coding, optimal data transmission, video quality), thus addressing such hot research topic in a multi-faculty approach.

The doctoral college is established jointly by the Faculty of Informatics, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, and the Faculty of Mathematics and Geoinformation at TU Vienna.
