Drones that can monitor environments such as nature reserves for weeks on end, are no longer a far-off prospect: At the initiative of the California Institute of Technology, or Caltech for short (Pasadena, USA), five researchers, including three from the University of Klagenfurt, have now applied for a new technology patent in the USA.
University mathematics is creative. Sarah Jane Selkirk, who came to Klagenfurt from South Africa as a doctoral student in 2020 and completed her doctorate as part of the doc.funds doctoral school “Modeling – Analysis – Optimisation of discrete, continuous, and stochastic systems”, is particularly keen to solve puzzles in an imaginative way. On 7 December 2023, she was presented with the Award of Excellence.
Autonomous drones typically use the GPS satellite navigation system to navigate autonomously. In the absence of sufficient GPS coverage, many drones rely on cameras. Both technologies have drawbacks. Researchers involved in the CARNIVAL project are currently working on new methods to improve radar navigation.
Online data traffic accounts for more than fifty percent of global greenhouse gas emissions attributed to digital technologies. Now, with the GAIA project, Bitmovin and the University of Klagenfurt are working to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions along the entire video “supply chain”. The 3.3 million euro project recently won the CSI Magazine Award for the best sustainability initiative. In parallel, the Bitmovin player’s ECO mode was recently launched, giving customers control over the level of CO2 emissions and costs they save.
The European Union has set ambitious targets for the agricultural sector with the Green Deal until 2030. To achieve these, land use and land management need to be regulated in a finely tuned way. Alexander Mozdzen, PhD student at the Department of Statistics at the University of Klagenfurt, in collaboration with Tamás Kristin (IIASA) and Gregor Kastner (University of Klagenfurt), has developed an innovative Bayesian space-time model to analyse the impact of agricultural subsidies on land use in Europe. The model aims to provide a clearer assessment of which policies have been effective in regulating land use.

Assistive robots are already in use in many operating theatres. However, they are often only used as teleoperators or assistants that hold and direct tools. Researchers at the University of Klagenfurt are working on new technologies that will enable robots to perform new tasks during operations. The algorithms developed in recent years are now being validated in cooperation with KABEG.
