Today we are very happy to internally kick off our new project KARVIMIO which is founded by the BMBF. Our team here at the HEX Lab will lead the project in collaboration with the medical experts from the LMU Klinikum, medtec specialists from Medability, and our colleagues from IAT who focus on participatory, ethical and security aspects.

The overall goal of KARVIMIO is the research and development of an Artificial intelligence (AI) based Augmented Reality (AR) assistance system to support the OR team in order to increase process and treatment quality and patient safety. AI-based object recognition and tracking through static and dynamic camera sensors will be used to automatically detect the medical instrument in focus and its condition. Through multimodal interaction with AR glasses, the medical staff will be able to quickly visualize the relevant operating instructions, in order to have the necessary information available at the point of use.

We are very much looking forward to the collaboration and the joint project.
