Imaging and Analysis

Customized solutions from intelligent imaging to real-time, AI-based image analysis

Imaging and Analysis

There are many different technologies, which can be used in vehicles, industrial production or consumer researches due to digitization, automation and the demand for increasingly higher resolution image information. Latest can be used for security, inspection and documentation tasks.

Our services in the field of imaging and analysis:

Let yourself be inspired by new technologies and research approaches and make your application fit for the future!

Our services in the field of imaging and analysis


Imaging solutions and systems

Special imaging solutions:

  • High spatial and temporal resolution
  • Different modalities, such as polarization or multi-spectral

Real-time, anonymized facial recognition


Our facial recognition software SHORE® forms the basis for many application scenarios in which it is important to get information about moods.


Medical Image Analysis


  • AI-based algorithms for microscopy
  • Semantic video analysis for endoscopy and surgery

Comprehensible Artificial Intelligence

How can the results arrived at by deep neural networks (DNNs) and the hidden logic they employ be rendered more intelligible and explicable?

In the Comprehensible AI (CAI) project group, we are developing methods for explainable machine learning in cooperation with Fraunhofer IIS and the University of Bamberg.

For more Data Protection

In October 2019 AVARD has successfully passed a recertification audit to verify compliance with German or European data protection legislation.




The SHORE® Drive simulator analyzes driver behavior at the wheel in real time and provides information on their emotional state (e.g. stress, fatigue). It works by fusing data from the integrated facial analysis software, physiological signals measured by wearables, and data from the vehicle itself. Using SHORE® Drive can significantly improve safety on the roads.
