Campus of the Senses Erlangen
Presentation of Prof. Dr. Albert Heuberger and Prof. Dr. Andrea Büttner.
The trend toward digitalization, until now mostly associated with industry, is increasingly spreading to all other areas of life, including people’s everyday activities. The Campus of the Senses in Erlangen intends to digitally recreate human senses such as sight and hearing, and especially the chemical senses of taste and smell. For instance, machines could be designed to help people who have lost their sense of taste and smell due to an infection determine whether food has gone bad.
The campus will combine interdisciplinary basic research and application-oriented research on the subject of digital sensory transition and will help you staying competitive by recording and processing individual sensory impressions digitally.
