“IoSense – Flexible FE/BE Sensor Pilot Line for the Internet of Everything” – Spring School’19 – Free registration!

The Second IoSense Spring School will be held at TU Delft on March 7′ 2019. Focus of the IoSense project is to develop innovative, competitive, next-generation sensors and sensor systems “Made in Europe” to provide solutions for the Internet of Things. Talks will be accompanied by demo presentations that will show how the technologies, developed within the IoSense project, can be used in real life application areas.
Target Audiences: PhD students, industrial designers, technology scouts and project managers with basic programming knowledge and an interest in sensor-based technologies.
Our talks and demonstrators consist of high-level overview, especially aimed at the hobbyists and technology scouts, while also going into depth for PhD students. Nevertheless, all speakers and participants will be available for your questions during the breaks.

Generating images of ice and water on aircraft wings

Juliana Padilha Leitzke came to Klagenfurt from Brazil in order to write her doctoral thesis and to contribute to reducing the risk of undetected hazardous ice on aircraft wings. She expects to complete her doctoral thesis shortly.

New technology to determine ice on aircraft

In-flight icing of aircraft wings represents one of the biggest safety risks in aviation. Researchers have developed new wireless sensors allowing improved detection of ice formation. Read more

Smaller & lighter: Printed sensors for spectrometers

Imagine that a pipeline that stretches for miles and miles springs a leak. Traditionally, this would mean many miles of walking for someone tasked with finding the hole. In an ideal world, this search for the precise point of methanol leakage could also be performed by a drone, onto which a spectrometer has been mounted that specializes in analysing chemical samples. Existing devices are currently far too heavy; the drone would soon have to give up. Lisa-Marie Faller is working on a technology, with which the fitted spectrometers can be made much smaller and would therefore be suitable for this type of deployment, amongst others. In recognition of her work, the doctoral student received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Conference EuroSimE in Dresden in April.
