The Fraunhofer IDM model
The Fraunhofer IDM research centre carries out applied research. The Centre looks at real world problems and uses technologies in the field of interactive digital media to provide visual solutions. In essence, the Centre looks at user-centered, immersive, real-time visual environments that allow users to interact with information.
The Centre also looks at the transfer of this applied research to the industry in terms of computer graphics and interactive digital media which includes visualisation on large-scale retina displays as well as mobile devices using intuitive interaction and augmented reality interfaces.
An essential cornerstone is the close collaboration with the various schools and colleges of the university providing a multi-disciplinary research environment to tackle great challenges in science, engineering and society.
Fraunhofer IDM@NTU is an enabler for various vertical sectors of the industry from health, manufacturing, maritime, transport, marketing, training and education.
