The main objectives and activities of the laboratory

Research, development and utilization of resources and methods for non-contact detection
and measurement.

Measurement of physical quantities in industrial technological processes.

Experimental research in fluid mechanics with an emphasis on non-stationary
and multiphase flow.

Processing of visual information in industry.

Automation of technological processes, automated measurements.

Development and application of generally non-contact methods, with emphasis on optical
principles, i.e. different types of lighting, scene capture and algorithms.
New research directions

Application of “Global Imaging Methods” (LDA, PIV, microPIV, PLIF, IPI) in the research
of flow in technological processes and systems.

Optical and laser measurements in the field of automation and optimization.

Development and application of image analysis methods in new technologies in the field
of mechatronics, robotics, process automation and artificial intelligence.

Research and development of new methodologies for non-contact detection
and measurement.
Laboratory specialization
The laboratory specializes in the measurement of physical quantities for automation
and optimization of industrial systems and experimental research of physical processes
in technological processes. Research activities focus on the design and development
of measurement methodologies and application measurement chains. A major task
is the provision of maintenance services to other CXI workplaces.
The laboratory focuses technical resources for rapid compilation of research and verification
experiments in the expertise specified in the main aims and activities, tools for the
development of experimental systems, electronic modules and computer algorithms.
Results of research and development will be applied in industrial and technological use
and in the field of experimental verification of numerical models and simulations.

Prototypes and functional samples of measurement chains.

Cooperation on the development of prototype machinery.

Methods of measurement and development of software tools.
