Technische Universität München

Technische Universität München (TUM) has a longstanding reputation in the fields of Science and Engineering. Alongside these traditional key areas, strong links have been established with the Life Sciences, ranging from Nutrition and Food Sciences, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics to Medicine. Much of TUM’s innovative research and lecturing has emerged from collaborations between these disciplines. With its broad scientific focus covered by faculties of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (Physics, Chemistry), Business & Economics, Engineering (Mechanical, Civil and Geodetic Engineering, Architecture, Computational Science), Medicine and the Weihenstephan Science Center for Life & Food Science an its research cooperations, innovation activities and entrepreneurial incubator centres, TUM plays an active part in accelerating the transfer of knowledge and technology to vitalise the industry.

The Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures (CAMP) was established at the Technische Universität München on 15th of October 2003. The main objective of the Chair is be a strong research and educational link between medical and computer science communities. In terms of research and development, CAMP focuses on recovery and understanding of workflows of medical procedures, on development of incremental, radical and fundamental technologies which allow physicians to improve the quality of medical procedures, and on computer vision methods to improve medical and augmented reality applications. Computer technology is playing an important role in 2D/3D/4D anatomical and functional imaging, reconstruction, segmentation, registration, tracking, navigation and advanced visualization. CAMP is active in these subjects with a particular emphasis on surgical workflow, medical augmented reality, multi-modal rigid and deformable registration, (intra-operative) tracking, 3D ultrasound, and navigation and multi camera reconstruction. The Chair has numerous collaborations with hospitals, providers of healthcare and medical technologies, various medical imaging research centres and computer vision labs worldwide. Furthermore, CAMP enjoys collaboration with several industrial partners. CAMP is among the largest and most important research institutes in Germany concerned with Computer Aided Medical Procedures and Computer Vision related subjects.

In the FishScan project, TUM /CAMP will contribute as an expert in Computer Vision, particularly when it comes to shaping reconstructions from various data, object detection, registration and tracking. To this end CAMP will perform research on biomass estimation of the fish from active sensors such as 3D ultrasound and Time-of-Light (ToF) cameras, and passive sensors such as video cameras, as well as from the combination of the two. Furthermore, TUM /CAMP will be involved in software development and fish shape reconstruction.
