  • Curriculum Vitae:
    Wolfgang L. Zagler was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1951. He obtained his diploma degree in Electrical Engineering in 1976 and joined the Institut fuer Industrielle Elektronik und Materialwissenschaften. His first activities at the institute centred around research and development of automatic seam following devices for precision welding equipment using optical pattern recognition. For this engagement he received his doctor´s degree in 1989.
    In parallel to his studies in industrial pattern recognition he applied elements of this technology to develop a reading machine for assisting blind and visually impaired persons incorporating optical character recognition and document analysis. This pilot project in rehabilitation engineering not only laid the foundation for a number of ambitious projects in the field of assistive devices for blind and visually impaired persons but also for establishing a permanent ten-person Working Group on Rehabilitation Technology called ´fortec´.
    Today the R&D activities not only cover assistive devices for blind and visually impaired persons but also for speech, hearing, motor and multiple impaired people and for elderly persons.
