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.

Changing the way our Ports Work
The Singapore Maritime Institute (SMI) organised a Data Analytics and Visualisation R&D Workshop with Fraunhofer IDM@NTU and Maritime Institute @NTU.
The workshop was held at the Nanyang Executive Centre (NTU) on Thursday, 2 May 2013.
Fraunhofer IDM@NTU showcased a new Big Data demo at CeBIT 2013 to provide politicians and top decision makers with instant visual solutions that “crunch” big data into meaningful visuals.
This, in turn, assists with quick and informed decision making.
