Open Topic @ Pervasive Computing: Task assignment on mobile devices

Montag, 27. Mai 2013 13:39

Finding an optimal assignment of tasks to nodes in the network is a common problem in distributed computing. Deciding which node performs what task(s) is influenced by various constraints and optimization goals (e.g. power consumption, processing load, latency …). This problem gains additional complexity when nodes are mobile, especially if they are connected via (potentially unreliable) low-power networking technologies. This master’s thesis deals with task assignment for a network of mobile nodes. In a first step, a comparative study on the state-of-the-art in task assignment should be performed. Selected task assignment mechanisms shall be evaluated for their suitability for mobile applications. Criteria like robustness to failing connections, execution speed and low communication effort should be used to compare the approaches. From the experience gained, a new approach especially for mobile networks will be designed and evaluated.

Guest Lecture Series on „Artificial Vision“

Dienstag, 5. Februar 2013 12:48

April 17, 18, 19 & April 23, 2013

The lecture series will aim to introduce the techniques for developing advanced  artificial vision based systems. From the early stages of image creation to the most advanced techniques for image and video interpretation the course will propose the state of the art algorithms for detecting objects and understanding their behaviours. A small amount of hours will be reserved to laboratory activities.

SP-ICE Summer School

Freitag, 1. Juni 2012 7:07

The Summer School on Signal Processing for Interactive and Cognitive Environments (SP-ICE) is the second edition of the Summer Schools series related with the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate on Interactive and Cognitive Environments (EMJD-ICE http://www.icephd.org) and can be considered as an ideal prosecution of the first edition that was organized by the Alpen-Adria Universität in Klagenfurt (AT) and technically co-sponsored by IEEE via the Seasonal Schools in Signal Processing (S3P) initiative.

Each year a different focus is given to the school that reflects either methodological or application aspects related to the ICE domain. This year the methodological focus will be on Signal Processing theories and techniques with their applications to domains.

Main topics of the Summer School activities are machine learning, cryptography, video-processing including tracking and detection, ambient assisted living, facial biometrics, emotion recognition, serious gaming, distributed consensus, bio-inspired systems, human interactions recognition.

Summer School on Signal Processing for Interactive and Cognitive Environments (SP-ICE); September 1-7, 2012; Loano (SV) – Italy

First Double-Degree IT student graduated @ AAU and University of Udine!

Montag, 2. April 2012 10:29

In the academic year 2009/2010 the first double-degree student enrolled in Klagenfurt. His master’s programs are „Information Technology“ at our university and „Multimedia Communications“ at University of Udine. Marco Venier recently finished the double-degree program writing his master’s thesis on „An Android Application for Queues Management“ under the supervision of Prof. Bernhard Rinner, DI Bernhard Dieber (both AAU Klagenfurt), and Prof. Gian Luca Foresti (Univ. Udine). More information on the offered Double Degree Program please find here.
We wish our first Double Degree graduate all the best for his future and his personal career!

Patent applications for generating mosaicks!

Donnerstag, 8. März 2012 15:23

Researchers of the Pervasive Computing group developed a method to generate an overview image — a so-called mosaick — from a set of individual aerial images. The novel mosaicking methods were filed as patent applications at the European and US patent offices. The manuscripts have recently been published and are available for download using identifiers EP 2423871 and EP 2423873.

SRSnet: Best Practice Project!

Donnerstag, 17. November 2011 12:04

The SRSnet project (http://SRSnet.lakeside-labs.com) has been awarded as a best practice project of the Interreg IV programme!

The cooperative project of the Alpen-Adria University (Pervasive Computing Group and Traffic Informatics Group), Lakeside Labs and the two Italian companies EyeTech and InfoFactory has been chosen due to the outstanding project results and its good project management. The published brochure lists SRSnet along with several other Interreg projects to demonstrate the effectiveness of cross-border cooperations.

Bigger, stronger, more powerful!

Dienstag, 8. November 2011 14:53

After long weeks of waiting, we finally received our new UAV – the MD4-1000. It’s really huge and it is a lot of fun to fly it.  In one of our first test flights we took a panorama of the university campus and lakeside park with lake Wörthersee in the background.

Click here and have a look at the latest panorama of our Campus, taken by one of our microdrones!

Details on the cDrones-project itself can be found on the website cDrones.com
