The following list comprises a selection of R&D-projects I have been enrolled in as a member of research teams.

FastPass: A harmonized, modular reference system for all European automated border crossing points

  • Description: FastPass is a research project on the development of a modular reference system for all European automated border crossing, funded by the European Commission under its Seventh Framework Programme. As a member of the University of Reading research team I am involved in the management of traveller identification and monitoring workpackages focusing on iris/face/fingerprint biometrics, anti-spoofing, and surveillance.
  • Duration: January 2013 - December 2016
  • Members: 28 Consortium partners, led by Austrian Institute of Technology

BioSurveillance: Single-sensor Biometric Surveillance Combining Iris and Face

  • Description: This project examines the multibiometric combination of iris and face recognition technology in unconstrained environments. The development of new iris recognition algorithms, especially for unconstrained environments has been a key asset of the project.
  • Duration: March 2009 - September 2012
  • Members: University of Salzburg (Peter Wild, Andreas Uhl)

HandFootBio: Single-sensor hand and footprint-based multimodal biometric recognition

  • Description: This project examines multimodal fusion of different hand- and footprint-based modalities using a single scan of the human hand or foot, respectively. While many hand geometry, fingerprint and palmprint systems have been described in the literature, the single-sensor approach is expected to provide very high matching accuracy without the need of additional hardware for each employed modality. With the target application of wellness areas and spas, an application of hand-related techniques to the human foot as a new modality supports privacy interests and still provides satisfying accuracy. Project work involves all design and implementation steps for a full-functioning prototype.
  • Duration: April 2007 - February 2008
  • Members: University of Salzburg (Peter Wild, Andreas Uhl)

WGSharp: C#-like recursive-descent compiler

  • Description: WGSharp is a programming language subset of Microsoft's C# (pronounced: CSharp) defined and implemented in the Compiler Construction Class 2005 at the Department of Computer Science, University of Salzburg, Austria held by C. Kirsch. The goal of this project was to design an individual source language, and develop a recursive-descent compiler that should be able to compile its own source. WGSharp excludes object orientation features like polymorphism and inheritance, but offers class declarations and static methods. The language provides strong typing, explicit variable declaration, local hiding through procedures and functions but avoids prototyping.
  • Duration: March 2005 - July 2005
  • Members: University of Salzburg (Michael Gschwandtner, Peter Wild)

Soccerbot: Camera-vision equipped robot featuring real-time object recognition

  • Description: This project focuses on the construction and software implementation of a semi-autonomous robot based on a Lego Mindstorms (RCX) chassis and a web camera as the main sensory system for navigation. Motivated by soccer-playing robots, the Java- and Giotto-based software setup is able to recognize and catch a ball distinguishable from the environment by its color and shape. Sensor data and moving instructions are sent via an IR link between the RCX and an external processing device executing the computational intensive real-time image processing and object recognition.
  • Duration: October 2005 - February 2006
  • Members: University of Salzburg (Georg Klima, Krystian Szczurek, Peter Wild)

eTrain: Online english grammar exercises

  • Description: eTrain is an online exercise pool created by Wildnet for austrian pupils aged 11-14 to train english grammar in their first four years of english as their premier foreign language. Whilst collections of exercises have been made available since 1998 and there is still work in progress to improve and implement additional modules for the eTrain development platform, a milestone for eTrain has been reached by 2007 with the complete reconstruction of the webapplication based now on Adobe Flash as frontend, Microsoft .NET code as backend and MS SQL Server 2000 database.
  • Duration: April 2006 - August 2007
