Computer vision techniques consist in automatically obtaining relevant information in images or video sequences.
They have multiple applications in various fields such as quality control and manufacturing in the industry, robotics for automatic guidance, in health areas where they can help diagnose and monitor some problems or diseases, in the service sector related to monitoring and surveillance, and in the field of the information society as new applications that may arise, such as the classification and search of videos, the analysis of sports videos, etc.
3D visualization techniques are traditionally used for the presentation of products and the exploration of virtual environments. In this field the use of new technologies coming from the field of videogames allows to improve the realism of images and develop innovative forms of interaction. The development of interactive visualization applications allows to improve the way in which products and services are presented, in which three-dimensional representation is fundamental.
GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS
The geospatial information services allow the management, access, consultation and analysis of geospatial data on the Web. The positioning or location is a natural feature in corporate data since most of the information we generate occurs or is linked in some way to a specific position and time point. Geospatial technologies are totally transversal to a multitude of possible scenarios such as, for example, transport, logistics, environment, administration, or location-based services for mobile devices. In this field, the implementation of information infrastructures that offer geospatial services allows the development of geospatial applications for a multitude of diverse purposes, where positioning plays a predominant role.
OPTICAL DEVICE SERVICE
The intelligent control of light beams is the key that allows you to take full advantage of the possibilities offered by photonic devices in different scenarios such as medicine, communications, production technologies, shows or culture. For this purpose, spatial radiation modulators based on liquid crystal technology or micromechanical elements are used, which allow the optical field to be modified locally, allowing complete digital control of a light beam.
In the Optics section of the INIT they are specialists in photonic applications in nanotechnology, ultra-short pulse material processing, laser production technologies, advanced optical microscopy, multidimensional imaging, imaging through turbid media and computational imaging.
