Hello. I’m Marcel Kaufmann.

Master of Science in Photonics and Computer Vision.

What I do

Currently I am a PhD student in Computer Engineering at the „Making Innovative Space Technologies“ Laboratory at Polytechnique Montréal in Canada.

My key competences include:


Analysing, developing and implementing algorithms for various problems and tasks.

Computer Vision

Acquiring data from different sensors, processing and extracting information computationally.


Designing and evaluating optics and sensors for image processing and vision applications.


Combining programming, computer vision and machine vision for automating the industrial and/or private sector.

My coding skills

I’m a photonics and computer vision engineer. To solve different challenges I use my professional skills which include following programming languages, libraries and tools:

  • C/C++
  • Matlab
  • Interactive Data Language (IDL)
  • Java
  • OpenCV
  • PCL
  • Qt
  • CMake

My Work and Projects

I work determined to ensure that business objectives are met, success is achieved and people are happy.

Autonomous Flying Drone

Autonomous Flying Drone

During a university project in 2014 my team and I worked on an autonomous flying drone. The manufacturers SDK and the OpenCV was used under Ubuntu to develop a software package which combined camera calibration, steering and feature detection for autonomous flying manoeuvres.

Glass Control

Glass Control

As part of the KONVOTIK project I set up a fair demo using computer vision technology and an industrial robot by DENSO in order to show the capabilities of a developed process control system for lens preforms.

Recent Projects

My recent projects include the reduction of false alarms in synthetic aperture radar coherent change detection (SAR-CCD) systems, and research on time-of-flight camera prototypes for which the results have been published and presented at the „Oldenburger 3D-Tage 2016“ (Oldenburg 3D-Days 2016) in Germany.

  • Synthetic Aperture Radar
  • Reduction of False Alarms
  • Time of Flight Camera
  • Temperature dependencies
  • Amplitude dependencies
  • Noise
  • Point Clouds

Let’s work together

I’m always happy and excited to discuss new projects and technologies. Especially in the fields of image processing, computer vision and/or robotics. If you are interested let me know.
