Markus Scholz is a research assistant at the Pervasive Computing Systems Group/TecO. His research interests include novel sensor technologies and algorithms suited for activity and context recognition as well as environmental sensing. He is further interested in wireless sensor network (WSN) and human computer interface (HCI) technologies which may improve safety of individuals in harsh environments. Previously, Mr Scholz worked in the BMBF project landmarke which focused on the improvement of firefighter safety during indoor missions by providing additional orientation using an ad-hoc wireless sensor network. In 2011 he started work in the BMBF project Koordinator, a follow up project to landmarke, which aims to improve front line firefighter communication through providing novel services based on ubicomp technologies.
Concurrently, he is working on his PhD Thesis entitled "Development of algorithms for device-free radio-based recognition of human activitites".
Mr Scholz is also involved in the Jennisense project a project which builds around the NXP Jennic transceivers. For these tranceivers a contiki OS port was developed at TecO. Additionally, differents kinds of hardware i.e. special application boards were designed based on/using this transceiver. Thus, Jennisense aims to bundle all the hardware schematics, drivers and application code document it and release it to the open source/free hardware community.
