The algorithm experts at MIG have developed a photofinish conversion algorithm along with a longtolong implementation for Excel to convert a photo of the finish captured in original colours into historical grey tones. Read more in the Photofinish Colourgrey Algorithm Paper.

20 steps to TMA
The MIG experts have developed an algorithm that enables the simulation of a horse race in the Wadden Sea. The 20 steps of design & development are described in detail in the Total Mudflat Algorithm Paper.
Slipstream algorithm applied for the very first time
The slipstream algorithm which was discovered at MIG a few weeks ago has been applied in practice for the first time. In the newly released GaloppSim version 148.90 both types – the simple and the double slipstream effect – are used.
UX tester Meike joins the team
The MIG team is happy to announce that Meike joined us for testing the usability of the user interfaces of our tools from an end-user perspective. With her application to the offered honorary vacancy she has convinced us, so that only 60 minutes later we could welcome her to the institute.
Two new algorithms discovered
Our algorithm researchers have discovered two types of slipstream algorithms (SLA). The simple slipstream algorithm (algoritmus ventus umbra simplex) appears when one horse is in the slipstream of exactly one other horse, while the more rarely occurring double slipstream algorithm (algoritmus ventus umbra duplex) requires the simultaneous slipstream of two horses.
Although scientifically not correct, in English-speaking countries the slipstream algorithm is sometimes also called algoritmus subligar fluvius.
The first use of these algorithms is planned for GaloppSim Version 148.90
Hoof Print Analysis
The Hoof Print Analysis (HPA) developed at MIG is typically used when the hover phase of horses is to be examined, i.e. how far a horse advances per step.
Use cases could be, for example, research on new horse racing simulation algorithms or the investigation of interdependencies in algorithm combinations or combined algorithms.
