The fact that the Mars helicopter “Ingenuity” is currently exploring the Red Planet is partly due to navigation technology co-developed by Stephan Weiss, Professor of Control of Networked Systems at the University of Klagenfurt. Three of his doctoral students are now scheduled to take part in the AMADEE-20 Mars mission simulation organised by the Austrian Space Forum (ÖWF) from 4 to 10 October 2021, where they will collect data in the Negev Desert in Israel in order to further refine the helicopter.
Paying attention to regionality, sustainability and high-quality products – at home and when dining out – is really easy in Klagenfurt. That’s because, in addition to several venerable Klagenfurt institutions, a growing number of restaurants are now focusing on cuisine with a purpose.
Drones are increasingly being deployed as autonomous actors in uncontrolled environments. This requires reliable control and navigation. The research team at the University of Klagenfurt led by Stephan Weiss and Jan Steinbrener, which also includes doctoral student Christoph Böhm, is now working on improving the drone’s self-awareness so that it becomes better at adapting to changing conditions in the future.
“The best coffee!”, “the coolest location!”… we have taken a closer look at a handful of cafés in Klagenfurt. Anyone who thinks that trendy venues can only be found in Vienna is very much mistaken: You will come across the full range here, from the charm of a traditional coffee house to hipster flair. The average level of daily consumption in Austria is three cups; we’ve tasted nine for you. Here’s our caffeinated résumé.
That life opens up paths you never expected is something Johannes Hofmeister, a doctoral student in statistics, experienced only recently. He told us why he decided not to become a teacher (for now), but has become an avid mathematical researcher instead.
“The best coffee!”, “the coolest location!”… we have responded to these calls and are taking a closer look at a handful of cafés in Klagenfurt. Anyone who thinks that you trendy places can only be found in Vienna is very much mistaken: You will come across the full range here, from the charm of a traditional coffee house to hipster flair. The average daily consumption in Austria is three cups, but we will make an exception today by drinking six. A résumé.
The university campus is quiet and empty, the country is in lock-down mode, and it’s largely up to you to summon up the motivation and the energy to study by yourself at home. We have put together five tips to get you inspired to study.
It’s 203 kilometres from the University of Klagenfurt to the centre of Grado, a journey that can be made in just over two hours by car. With Klagenfurt as your starting point, it’s easy to take the day off and spend it relaxing on the beach. Once somewhat scorned as so-called caretaker beaches, the seaside resorts of the Upper Adriatic have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity over the past few summers. Find out about the most important locations here.
Many of us are familiar with recommender systems, especially from sales platforms. Based on our previous decisions, they recommend other products that could also be of interest to us. But can they guide us towards “better” options that are genuinely more beneficial for us? Mathias Jesse, doctoral student in the doctoral school DECIDE, is investigating the working mechanisms of various technical concepts.
Under which conditions can mathematics be used to calculate how many and which animals will live where, how viruses will spread, and how strong our economic performance will be tomorrow? Christian Aarset has developed mathematical models that allow us to calculate the future. He recently completed his doctoral thesis under the supervision of Christian Pötzsche.
