Machines are already capable of many things. A certain set of sensors has already been fully developed. And yet, Harald Gietler, researcher at the Department of Smart Systems Technologies seeks to discover: “Who knows what kinds of sensors we will need in the future?” He is currently developing a new technology, which will allow machines to determine the location of other machines.

In practical settings, ten minutes of flight time are generally not enough for most applications. A team comprised of researchers from the University of Klagenfurt (AAU) and NASA-JPL/California is working on ways to enable the autonomous flight of drones in several stages with intermittent charging phases. Christian Brommer, AAU doctoral student, has recently published the results of his research.
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.

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.

When JPL-NASA staff member Stephan Weiss demonstrated his drone navigation technology during a flight demonstration in 2013, Charles Elachi, head of JPL at the time, asked him: “Can we fly this on Mars?” This marked the beginning of a successful development story, which will shortly culminate in the Mars Mission 2020 deployment of an adapted version of the drone flight technology developed by Weiss, who is now a professor at the Alpen-Adria-Universität.

Wherever several clocks tick simultaneously, it is tricky to get them all to display precisely the same time. This can be a challenge for drone swarms that are airborne together. To tackle this problem, young scientist Agata Gniewek is developing new technologies.
