MULTIPLE Workshop: smart multimodal monitoring solutions

Thursday, 13 April 2023, 15:00 – 17:30 CEST

MULTIPLE stands for “Multimodal Spectral Sensors and Orchestrated Deep Models for Integrated Process Optimization,” and its high-level aim is to increase the competitiveness, flexibility, and efficiency of Europe’s photonics manufacturing base while enhancing the quality of its products. Its manufacturing solutions will allow Europe’s machine vision and image processing equipment suppliers to compete better in global markets.


The project aims to develop cost-effective, multimodal monitoring solutions based on cutting-edge organic-electronics-based sensors, snapshot hyperspectral cameras, and dual-aperture imaging to deliver cost-effective spectrometers and camera cores spanning a broad spectral range from the visible through SWIR bands. The project will complement these solutions using cost-effective laser-based chemometric sensors operating in the mid-IR.


Addressing challenges on this scale would be too expensive for individual companies or organizations. The idea underlying the MULTIPLE project is to identify a demand for solutions from select applications and address them through the implementation of cameras and sensors produced by multiple providers. The project aims to develop common software solutions to support these multimodal systems and combine them with AI analysis and cloud data storage to enable remote access and control by any end user.


In this online workshop, the key stakeholders of the MULTIPLE project will demonstrate the complete capability of the developed solutions and educate the audience about the potential benefits these solutions offer.
