Visual Computing - The Four-Dimensional Future of Intelligent Cameras, Displays, and Lighting

The future of monitor screens and camera technologies has already begun - and they are four-dimensional! Cameras of the future can measure light coming from different angles. In the future, the pixels on screens will be able to produce different light components for different beam angles. The result: 3D images! The presentation focuses on future display screens, how images will be captured, and lighting technologies.

Workshop - How A Microchip is Created

The course first takes a look at how microchips go undetected in our everyday lives. We then take a look at how a microchip is created from sand to become a finished circuit. You will learn about modern CAD methods used in design and how a functioning circuit is created. Depending on the time left, we can experience the microchip with visual demonstrations.

Signals in Nature & Technology

We find signals in various forms in nature & technology. This presentation looks at biosignals (such as ECG and EEG signals), a bat's ultrasound signals, and the high-frequency signals found in our smartphones. Modern signal propagation is found in the millions in the microchips that are in our mobile phones, MP3 players, TV and radios, in cars, as well as in medical technology. Selected signal processing games will be used to demonstrate and discuss these topics.

Real-Time Localization: The Farmer and the Cow

With the help of so-called 'real-time localization systems', we can locate people and even animals. These systems are, for example, used in stalls to locate cows that are housed together with other animals. The stalls contain base stations to locate cows and each cow has a smart ear tag. By measuring the distance between the base station and the cow, the cow can be located. This workshop explains real-time localization by allowing students to conduct hands-on experiments.
