Disruption, simplification, and style are some ingredients of German mobility startups that I find particularly interesting.
Lakeside Labs is a non-profit organization for scientific research and development of self-organizing networked systems. Our goal is to apply and improve self-organization in the areas of IoT, robotics and transportation. It has been a successful year.
We highlight research issues for wireless networking in aerial systems consisting of multiple small autonomous drones. Among these challenges are video streaming, synchronization, security and safety, and interference management.
Mobile robots in explorer missions need to charge their batteries from time to time. Different policies for coordinated recharging in teams of robots are evaluated.
Trello is a software tool to manage projects and workflows using Kanban boards. It can greatly support scientists. A primer.
Samira Hayat from my team told her personal story at this year’s TED event at CERN and reported on our research activities in the field of multi-drone systems.
Mathematical expressions for bit error rates in a wireless system are derived and provide insight into interference control.
A time synchronization technique for networked devices with low-precision oscillators and low computational power is proposed and evaluated by experiments.
A newly published survey gives an overview of the characteristics and requirements of drone networks from the viewpoint of wireless communications and networking.
For many young researchers, the PhD graduation marks the end of an era of standardized salaries. They now have to negotiate their salary when entering the industry or moving to a non-university research organization. Below are some tips on how to approach these negotiations. An Austrian-German perspective.
