Research infrastructure laboratories in Erfurt, Chemnitz, Magdeburg and Jena are waiting for project partners

In order to further promote the development of 3D technology in the future, two new research infrastructures were presented during this year's 3Dsensation general meeting.

In the joint project “Human-Machine-Interaction-Labs”, a total of three new laboratories have been created across different locations: The “Human-Centered-Design (HCD)-Lab” of Chemnitz University of Technology focuses on the application of 3D technologies in the field of virtual and augmented reality. Meanwhile, the “Robo-Lab” at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg offers deep-learning computers with sufficient computing capacity for researching and testing artificial intelligence. The “Teaching-Lab” at the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena will provide young scientists with the suitable space to experimentally reproduce application scenarios.

In addition, a second research infrastructure was created in the form of the “3DTech-Lab”. This was established by the scientists of Fraunhofer IOF in the Fraunhofer Project Center for Microelectronic and Optical Systems for Biomedicine MEOS in Erfurt. This research facility is also intended to provide a platform for scientists to test newly developed systems for concrete application scenarios. Further information about this laboratory will follow soon on our website.

With their respective orientation for research purposes, the laboratories will not only be available to consortium partners but will also be accessible to research institutions and industrial companies that do not belong to the research alliance.

For further information, please contact the laboratory managers. The coordination office will be happy to forward any inquiries.
