Grundstücks- und Mietpreissteigerungen in der Zweiten Reihe: Studie vergleicht Wohnungsmarktentwicklung in den Brandenburger Städten Fürstenwalde (Spree) und Neuruppin

Was passiert am Wohnungsmarkt außerhalb der Großstädte, wenn diese Städte wieder wachsen? Und welche Strategien können Kommunen nutzen, um leistbare Angebote für alle Bewohner*innen bereitzuhalten? In der aktuellen Ausgabe der Fachzeitschrift “Zeitschrift für Wirtschaftsgeographie” ist ein Beitrag zu den Entwicklungen auf den Wohnungsmärkten in Brandenburgs Städten der zweiten Reihe erschienen. Der Aufsatz trägt den Titel “Sprung in die zweite Reihe? Zu den lokalen Bedingungen rent gap-getriebener immobilienwirtschaftlicher Aufwertung in Brandenburgs Mittelstädten” und wurde von Richard Bůžek (Institut für Geographie der Universität Münster) und Michael Mießner (Institut für Geographie und Regionalforschung der Universität Klagenfurt) verfasst.

Successful review of the first research phase: Christian Doppler ‘pilot’ laboratory ATHENA to transition to a regular CD laboratory two years after launch

The University of Klagenfurt has been running the Christian Doppler Laboratory ATHENA in collaboration with Bitmovin since October 2019. The team of researchers is developing new methods for the delivery and playback of live and on-demand video via the Internet using HTTP Adaptive Streaming technology. The aim is to provide viewers with a higher quality, lower latency video experience in the future. At the same time, researchers are seeking to reduce storage and distribution costs. The laboratory has recently undergone a comprehensive evaluation — and can now transition from the pilot phase to a regular laboratory.

Analysing changes in microservice-based systems

When it comes to computer science, we can develop large, complex applications as a single monolithic system, or we can split them into small, scalable components that work together using standard protocols. In the Internet cloud, these small components are often implemented as microservices. A new research project, funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency, sets out to understand more precisely how changes in a single microservice affect other microservices and the application as a whole.

Research into COVID-19-related crisis scenarios at AAU: New technology will optimise the supply of medical protective equipment

Earlier this year, it became painfully clear to many in Europe that the supply of face masks, gloves and protective overalls is by no means crisis-proof. A research team consisting of Austrian and Chinese scientists is now working on new technologies that will address different levels of the supply chain and will ultimately lead to the faster, more efficient and cheaper supply of protective equipment across Europe, even in times of crisis.

Robots set to learn how to provide better assistance during surgery

Minimally invasive surgery has many advantages for patients and surgical teams, such as shorter recovery times, lower post-operative complication rates, higher patient acceptance rates and increased cost efficiency. One key area here is interventional radiology, where external imaging equipment is used to guide the surgical instruments through the body. Robots can support in this task. However, those who believe that robots “operate” independently are (as yet) mistaken: The robot systems available today are pure tele-operators or mere assistants for holding and targeting tools; that’s all they can do. Now, a research project led by the University of Klagenfurt wants to explore additional advantages of “operating robots” and increase their autonomy when it comes to supporting surgeons. Read more

Helicopter flies to Mars: Researcher based in Klagenfurt provided the navigation technology

According to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, on 30 July the new Mars Rover “Perseverance” will take off from Cape Canaveral, bound for Mars. Also on board is the first ever “Mars helicopter”, which will undertake exploratory flights. The helicopter is navigated using a technology that Stephan Weiss, Professor at the Department of Smart Systems Technologies, was instrumental in developing.

Successful testing of UWB sensor network in industrial setting

Wireless communication is becoming increasingly important in industrial companies, as production processes frequently have to be adapted and optimized. Laying new cables each time would reduce flexibility. Together with the companies Messfeld and Dewesoft and the research institutes JOANNEUM RESEARCH DIGITAL and FH Campus 02, the University of Klagenfurt and Lakeside Labs GmbH have now tested a UWB network in an industrial setting.
