Innovation, meticulousness and lots of physics:
With long-standing know-how in microsystems technology and an own clean room segment, iris-GmbH can manage the specific challenges of automatic passenger counting with the core element of the sensors – the infrared light receiver.
The iris engineers have constantly enhanced their competencies in miscelleneous fields of infrared technology. This is not only testified by twenty patents, but also by five sensor generations, which enable reliably and exactly with different sensor technologies the passenger counting in vehicles.
iris-GmbH has special know-how in the field of thermal infrared sensors (FIR), sensors of near-infrared (NIR), Time-of-Flight-technology and signal processing, especially for 3D data.
The system design expresses the substantial knowledge in physical optics, sensor technologies and signal processing, next to twenty years of practical experience with more than 300.000 equipped vehicles.
To enlarge the technical advance, iris-GmbH is researching already now for the next sensor generation. This is happening in close cooperation with institutes and regional universities, e.g. Humboldt-University of Berlin, Technical University Berlin of Berlin, University for Applied Sciences Brandenburg and the HTW Berlin.
The testing gadgetry, constructed by the iris test engineers, allows a solid check of all essential physical, electric and optical parameters of the sensors. Therefore a complete, all-over and computer-aided testing of all devices is guaranteed, including a retraceability to each unique sensor. This renders possible a uncomplicated replaceability of devices in the field.
We are searching for fresh answers to the following questions:
- How to detect people?
- What processes are well suited and sufficiently robust?
- Can various processes be usefully combined??
- Where to process signals und how to process them?
- What interfaces facilitate suitable systems integration?
Our cooperating partners:
Development of a biometric vein recognition sensor with additional safety features – 4DVeinPlus
A new vein recognition system with additional safety features is being researched and developed in a cooperation project between the institute for mathematics of the technical university of Berlin and iris-GmbH infrared & intelligent sensors.
Both partners reinforce their cooperation of many years in the subject areas of sensor construction, image processing with 2D- and 3D-data, object recognition, classification and data analysis.
This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
