What is the relation between recycling and image processing? In the first episode of 1 Minute Wissen on the FAU’s TikTok channel, Frank Sippel explains multispectral camera arrays, i.e. cameras that record more than just the usual three color channels red, green, and blue. Such a camera array, which, e.g., records images in the infrared domain, can then be used to classify plastics since different plastics have specific molecular arrangements and thus absorb infrared light differently.
