Bionic research and pest management

Research focus: Bionic research and sustainable pest control

Bionic algorithms inspired by insects:

Night vision algorithm

Image denoising algorithm

Optical collision avoidance

Sustainable pest control of the invasive fruit fly Drosophila suzukii and migratory locusts:

Development of biocides against fruit flies derived from organic waste material

Development of botanical oil emulsions based on linseed oil against gregarious locust control

I hold several patents for innovative night vision algorithms and botanical pesticides

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 improve image quality for reliable diagnosis. Recently, this algorithm was improved for the denoising of real-world camera images.

Bionic collision avoidance

We recorded neuronal activity from collision detector neurons of locusts to develop an optical collision avoidance device that can make drone flights safer.

Project: BioKollAvoid funded by the FFG

First prototype was developed in cooperation with FH Joanneum, Fraunhofer Institute Graz, Drone rescue systmes Inc.

Alternative control of the Asian fruit fly Drosophila suzukii

We invented an effective biocide against the Asian fruit fly Drosophila suzukii. It is easy to apply, cheap and sustainable.

Project Biocide was funded by the aws Austria
