National Research Network (NFN) S92 "Industrial Geometry",
Subprojects 1 "Coordination and Service, Knowledge Transfer and Sustainability" 2005-2008,
and 2 "Dynamic Spline Surfaces", 2005-2011, funded by the FWF Nationales Forschungsnetzwerk (NFN).
The activities of the research network aims at supporting the cooperation and ineraction between the different fields of application-oriented geometric research. These include Computer Aided Geometric design, Computational geometry, Image Processing, Kinematics and Robotics. During the first funding period, our institute has coordinated the activities of the research network.
Subproject 2 is devoted to dynamic spline surfaces. Among other topics, it deals with the reconstruction of geometric objects from measurement data. Another topic is the use of nonlinear geometric primitives for geometric computations.
