• Aeolus Bot

    Perception system for a household assistant robot

    We were working on the perception system of the robot. By developing object pose estimation and tracking algorithms we allowed Aeolus to use robot's arm to perform various operations on objects e.g. grabbing a can of Coca-Cola

     

    Our team assisted Aeolus from the beginning. We assisted in establishing key components of the system, we designed build environment & test structure for whole organization


    Robot was presented on CES 2018

  • CELLSTAR-ALGORITHM.ORG

    A novel segmentation algorithm dedicated to budding yeast

    Automatic tracking of cells in time-lapse microscopy is required to investigate a multitude of biological questions. To limit manipulations during cell line preparation and phototoxicity during imaging, brightfield imaging is often considered. Since the segmentation and tracking of cells in brightfield images is considered to be a difficult and complex task, a number of software solutions have been already developed.

     

    CellStar is one of such algorithms. It is optimized to segment and track images of budding yeast cells growing in monolayer (e.g. images from microfluidic chambers), however the algorithm can be also used to track other round objects (in brightfield as well as fluorescent images).

  • TAXONIFY.ORG

    A specie annotation tool for Deep Learning

    Taxonify is a platform that expedites the process of species annotation for automated classification. It supports image browsing and annotation in a way that is optimal for taxonomists and their annotation workflow. Taxonify is free and open source - you can download, modify it and use it according to your needs!


    It's currently used in the project Aquascope for annotation of phytoplankton and zooplankton images coming from automated underwater imaging cameras in lake Greinfensee (Switzerland). The software was funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation project 310030L_182124 (Aquascope). You can check out more about Aquascope project on their website - www.aquascope.eawag.ch

    Leica Biosystems

    Microscopy, Image Processing, R&D

    From our experience and research, we designed and developed an algorithm for nuclei segmentation in microscopy images which is now a key feature of Leica software. The following paper presents additional concepts not covered by the NDA.

     

    A Robust Algorithm for Segmenting and Tracking Clustered Cells in Time-Lapse Fluorescent Microscopy (IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, 2013).

    European Space Agency

    Image Processing, Cloud, R&D

    Space debris refers to the increasing number of man-made objects orbiting Earth, such as obsolete satellites. As of July 2013, about 670,000 small items (1-10 cm in size) and 29,000 larger items were estimated to be in orbit. To help resolve this problem, we developed scalable image analysis algorithms that enable debris detection in images collected by telescopes.

    Nvidia

    GPU, R&D

    Our team worked together with Nvidia R&D to develop applications of GPU units to Computational Fluid Dynamic simulations. We offer extensive knowledge of the design and of the pros and cons of current GPU units, along with their applicability to various domains.

    Aeolus Robotics

    Computer Vision, Machine Learning, R&D

    We supported Aeolus Robotics by leading the development of a vision system that integrated with a revolutionary product they were developing. This system required competency in image analysis and computer vision, which our team provided. In addition, our teams also used recent Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning advancements to extend standard approaches.
