JOANNEUM RESEARCH, headquartered in Graz, is a successful national and internationally active research institution owned by the Austrian federal states of Styria, Carinthia and Burgenland. Ideally embedded in the national and international innovation network, our researchers innovate in three high-level fields of expertise: “Information and Production Technologies”, “Human Technologies and Medicine”, and “Society and Sustainability”. We use our ideas, innovative power and considerable research experience to support companies both private and public not only with the development of technology, methods and products, but also with societal topics.
Employing more than 130 researchers, DIGITAL - the Institute for Information and Communication Technologies - specialises in acoustic, image and video signal processing together with remote sensing, communication, navigation and mobile technologies. These technologies are implemented in hardware and software and in application-oriented solutions based on cutting-edge scientific methodologies.
The research group “Intelligent Acoustic Solutions” has specialized in acoustic monitoring for more than 20 years and is now one of the key players worldwide. This technology provides an additional modality supplying comple-mentary information. The team has a wide range of expertise required for the development of complete systems under real conditions: acoustic data acquisition and management including sensor and measurement technology, digital signal processing including artificial intelligence methods and algorithms as well as software architecture and development for acoustic real-time systems.
The already widely known system AKUT was invented and developed by JOANNEUM RESEARCH.
