Bionic research

Which app allows humans to see in the dark?

How can we remove noise from underexposed images without losing image details?

How can we lower radiation exposure during breast cancer screenings?

What can we learn from the eyes of swarming locusts to prevent drone collisions?

Which botanical oils can be used for insect pest control?

Can we use linseed oil to control locust swarm outbreaks?

I hold several patents for innovative algorithms and botanical pesticides addressing above questions.

Neurobionic night vision

Nocturnal insects see in the dark. My patented night vision algorithm simulates this remarkable sensory capability.


Image denoising

My bionic alogrithm significantly reduces noise by means of spatial integration of visual information. It preserves image details and image sharpness. In addition, I developed a novel image postprocessing of mammographic images that allows to reduce X-ray radiation in modern diagnostic devices.

Bionic collision avoidance

We recorded neuronal activity from collision detector neurons of locusts to develop a bionic collision avoidance algorithm that can make drone flights safer.

Alternative control of locust outbreaks

Using linseed oil, we have found a botanical emulsion against gregarious locust swarms. Our patent pending oil mixture kills locusts within 48 hours and causes them to stop eating immediately. It is harmless for humans.
