An object-oriented approach to color

Project description

Colour perception of natural objects

Colour perception is driven by photoreceptors in the eye that get activated by light of different wavelengths. The key objective of the EU-funded Color3.0 project is to revisit colour perception around real world objects, taking into account the dimensional aspects of colour such as intensity, hue and saturation. To understand the mechanism behind colour processing, researchers will investigate the neural circuits implicated in colour perception in real and virtual worlds. Apart from providing fundamental knowledge on the visual system, the project's results will lead to better colour reproduction and lighting systems.
