ARTTS granted EXIST technology transfer programme

ARTTS partner UL-INB submitted a proposal within the highly competive EXIST technology transfer programme of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Trading (BMWI). Out of 56 submissions the proposal was one of 16 successful ones, winning a 400,000 euro grant in October 2009; this will be used to establish a company that will develop and market software solutions for time-of-flight cameras.

The company will aim at extending the time-of-flight (TOF) technology by a gesture technology (GT), i.e. the goal is to develop a TOF-GT engine that establishes a link between TOF cameras and a wide range of interactive gesture-based applications.

ARTTS to Host Time-of-Flight Face Detection Competition
