Welcome to the website of the Institute of Visual Computing at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences.

The field of Visual Computing covers a wide range of applications, generally related to computer environments with a visual paradigm that enable interaction and control.

Visual computing includes virtual, augmented and mixed reality as well as computer graphics, computer vision and similar fields. Technologies from these areas can open completely new perspectives in terms of analysis, creativity, interaction, decision-making and manufacturing in many industrial, research, education and training sectors.

Our main research fields include:

  • Targeting Human Potential: Health, VR & Therapy, Low Latency Rendering, Photorealistic Rendering, Multi sensory interaction
  • Exploiting Human Limitations: Perception driven Visualisation, Video Forensic
  • Human Behaviour: Human Motion Analysis
  • Digital Learning, Live Sciences & Education: Scientific Visualisation/VR/AR For Research and Education, Big Data, Machine Learning, Astronomy, Engineering Simulation, Hyperspectral Imaging
  • Games Technology: 3D Simulation, Gamification
