We offer all types of services regarding software development for automated image analysis. No matter if you are a big or small company, a university institute, or a spin-off, we can provide state-of-the-art tools for a successful integration of image analysis together with machine learning to enhance your projects and products.

We are your perfect partner for extracting visual information from your images and videos.


Feasibility Studies and Requirements Engineering


Software Solutions

We provide flexible assistance during the entire process: starting from consulting and performing feasibility studies, through requirements engineering, working on algorithm development and prototyping, and deploying high-quality integrated or end-user software products.

KML VISION is your innovative and reliable partner for each and every one of these steps - it is your choice, which we take together.


The following demonstrates a selection of R&D projects we are involved in, comprising digital pathology, computer-assisted diagnosis and software engineering for automated image analysis.

Electro-anatomic Mapping

Scalable multi-user information system for mapping results of electrophysiological measurements with macroscopic images of the underlying anatomy.

Cell Detection and Type Classification

Machine learning based detection and classification of hematopoietic cells in high-power histological images of bone marrow.

Retinal Image Analysis

Automated grading of the tortuosity of the vascular system of the eye by analyzing retinal fundus images.

Computer-assissted Diagnosis

Automated classification of precursors and pathologies by machine learning based analysis of images of histological samples, e.g. automated diagnosis of different grades of anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN), myocardial fibrosis, etc.

IQM - Scientific Image and Signal Analysis in Java

Development of IQM, an extensible and flexible open-source (GPLv3) research tool, designed for convenient examination of digital images and signals in cooperation with the Medical University of Graz.


Development of the inter-observer reliability study module (IRIS) for Cytomine, an open-source (APL 2.0) rich internet application for collaborative analysis of multi-gigapixel images.

Ultrasound Image Analysis for Body Composition Assessment

As partner of the International Association of Sciences in Medicine and Sports (, we developed a software solution to reliably and accurately determine the subcutaneous adipose tissue.

Computer Vision and Video Analysis

Automated video analysis for tracking objects, measuring lengths, etc., e.g. for beat rate extraction and beat-to-beat variability measurements in high-speed microscopy videos of zebrafish and embryonic chick cells.

Industrial Applications

Our technology can be used for quality control in different industries such as coating manufacturing or wood industry.

Water Quality Analysis

Classification of algae and microorganisms in water for quality control can be realized with our AI-based technology.
