6D-Vision nominated for the Deutscher Zukunftspreis 2011!
The "Deutscher Zukunftspreis" is the most significant national award for technical innovations. It is given by the German Federal President yearly. Among the three nominees of the year 2011 was the 6D-Vision team of Dr.-Ing. Uwe Franke, Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Gehrig and Dr.-Ing. Clemens Rabe with their project "6D-Vision - recognizing hazards faster than the human eye".

The prize was given to the team from Dresden for their work on OLEDs. The 6D-Vision team won the on-line voting clearly.
Many discussions and insights have supported our successful development of 6D-Vision. Ín particular, we like to thank
- the Daimler colleagues, esp. Fridtjof Stein, wo not only invented "PowerFlow" but also continually contributed ideas,
- the external scientists, who always lent us an ear, esp. Prof. Koch (Kiel), Prof. Förstner (Bonn), Prof. Klette (Auckland), Prof. Mester (Frankfurt), Prof. Cremers (München), Thomas Pock (Graz), Heiko Hirschmüller (Oberpfaffenhofen), Felix Wölk (Hamburg),
- our (former) PhD students Hernan Badino, Alexander Barth, Stefan Heinrich, Thomas Müller, David Pfeiffer, Tobi Vaudrey und Andreas Wedel, who helped us with their fruitful work, and
- Supercomputing Systems AG (Zürich) for their support of the FPGA-Programming of SGM and our supplier from Lindau for the development of the camera hardware.
