The Mobile Systems Group of the University of Klagenfurt held a workshop on scientific writing. They discussed the typical parts of a paper along with specific challenges and practiced them in group work.
A panel on the next generation of mobile communication systems was held in Klagenfurt. Experts from two network operators, a chip vendor, and research institutions discussed the opportunities and challenges of 5G.
A multidisciplinary team at the University of Klagenfurt is due to deliver initial insights on the efficient operation of a drone-based delivery network. Doctoral student Pasquale Grippa will present the results at the Robotics: Science and Systems event taking place at MIT this week.
An interdisciplinary workshop on self-organization and swarm intelligence in cyber physical systems was held at Lakeside Labs this week. Experts presented their work and discussed open issues in this exciting field.
Samira Hayat and I attended re:publica 2017 in Berlin. It was an exciting event not least because Samira gave a very personal talk about drones and their application in disaster response.
It was an honor and pleasure of visiting the Center for Aerial Robotics Research and Education (CARRE) in Toronto. I gave a talk on wireless communication and job selection for drones and discussed research topics with many awesome colleagues.
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.
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.
Scientists and engineers working on multi-UAV systems came together in Klagenfurt to discuss the trends and open issues in this emerging domain. Speakers included the robotics professors Siegwart, Lacroix, and Schöllig. An exciting panel with participation from industry debated about business opportunities.
My doctoral supervisor and mentor, Jörg Eberspächer, retired. I had the honor to give a talk on my research in the field of multi-drone systems at his farewell event.
