Center for Adaptive Security Research and Applications CASRA / APSS

Adrian Schwaninger founded the Visual Cognition Research Group (VICOREG) at the University of Zurich in 1999. Diana Hardmeier was one of the first members of VICOREG.

VICOREG grew every year and conducted basic and applied research in the following areas: Aviation security human factors, human-machine interaction, cognitive and computational modeling, perception and recognition of faces and objects.

While this research resulted in many publications and funded projects, applications in aviation security had the biggest practical impact. In 2001 Applied Psychological Science Solutions (APSS) was created to protect the intellectual property of software products developed by vision and computer scientists associated with VICOREG. In a close collaboration between scientific and aviation security experts together with end users, tools for selection, training and certification were developed. X-Ray Tutor (XRT), a revolutionary individually adaptive training system, had the biggest impact. It was installed at more than 10 airports in Germany in 2002. In a project funded by the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA), XRT version 1.7 was installed at more than 400 airports in the USA by spring 2004. TSA also funded the development of a customized version of XRT 2.0 (Object Recognition Module), which was installed at more than 450 airports end of 2005. The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) signed a contract with the University of Zurich to use XRT at all 89 airports in Canada together with selection (X-Ray ORT) and certification tests as well as applied research for improving airport security.

While the development of tools for selection, training and certification continued and more and more countries started using those systems, research on human-machine interaction and system optimization became also important since 2006 (see funded projects).

In 2008, CASRA was founded when Adrian Schwaninger became professor at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, School of Applied Psychology, Institute Human in complex Systems (MikS). With CASRA it became possible to combine applied research from MikS with the research of VICOREG and software development by APSS.

Diana Hardmeier was appointed Director of CASRA and Adrian Schwaninger Chairman of CASRA.

Today, CASRA has a workforce of around 30 persons, comprising among others psychologists, computer scientists and aviation security experts, many of which have an academic degree.

Since 2000, our software products have been installed in more than 40 countries at more than 900 airports and other sites worldwide.
