High Speed Cameras Workshop
High-speed cameras are an essential analysis and measurement tool in a wide variety of tests in passive safety. The video recording or image sequences not only provide spectacular images for all involved. They are also becoming increasingly important for downstream 2D and 3D image analysis. In addition to the direct determination of parameters such as velocities or target accuracy, the data is also frequently compared with a simulation. Due to the manifold use of video data today, the demands on the operation of the cameras are also increasing. This is accompanied by an increasing complexity of the overall system of camera, optics and lighting. Only by taking a holistic view of all components optimal results can be achieved for the various departments and customers. The seminar focuses on high-speed cameras and first provides a detailed introduction to the technology used. The special features of a high-speed sensor are explained via the structure of a pixel cell. Building on this, the essential basics, special features and optimization parameters of a high-speed camera are taught. With the well-founded basics, the essential quality criteria for the different tasks can now be explained and demonstrated. For further optimization, the possibilities of optics and illumination are then discussed in detail. It is essential to focus on the specific tasks in the automotive industry and image analysis in 2D and 3D.
Who should attend?
The seminar is aimed at specialists from crash-related development, engineers and technicians from test and simulation departments, as well as project engineers and managers.
After attending the course, participants will have gained in-depth knowledge of the functionality and operation of a high-speed camera. They will have knowledge about the optimization of video sequences both in the area of parameterization of the cameras themselves, the tuning of the overall system with optics and light as well as the post-processing of video data.

Dr.-Ing. Thomas Weber
High Speed Vision GmbH
Dr. Thomas Weber has been working in the field of high-speed cameras for over 20 years. After studying computer science, he started at the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft in 1987, where he earned his doctorate in the area of process chain optimization and logistics. He then managed various optimization and logistics projects in full vehicle development. Via a group-wide optimization project in the area of vehicle safety, he found his home in the field of high-speed cameras more than 20 years ago. He was responsible for projects concerning the development of high-speed cameras, their accessories and control software. He designs and leads national and international projects in vehicle development with high speed cameras. A characteristic of his work is the optimization of the overall process for smooth and efficient operation of the entire system. Thus, he successfully implements projects in the safety centers of well-known suppliers and automotive manufacturers.
