SDI-X: Smart Data Innovation processes, tools and operational concepts

The BMBF-funded project Smart Data Innovation processes, tools and operational concepts (SDI-X) researches appropriate tools and best practices to not only facilitate extensive data analysis projects between different research and industry partners, but also enable their prompt implementation. The project is one of the publicly-funded pillars that support the operation of the SDIL and as more…

Smart Data Solutions for SMEs in Baden-Württemberg

Besides the BMBF-funded Project SDI-X this project is the second pillar of the state support of the SDIL. The project is funded by the Ministry of science, research and art Baden-Württemberg (MWK) as part of the Smart Data Solution Center Baden-Württemberg (SDSC-BW) to explore the use of suitable smart data technologies for SMEs. more…

Lehre-HOCH-Forschung

Within the BMBF-funded project “Lehre hoch Forschung”, several measures to establish research-oriented teaching at a much earlier stage than in traditional university teaching are implemented at KIT – both in individual institutes as well as in the central institutions. TECO / the Chair for Pervasive Computing Systems is involved in the more…

ScaleIT: Scaling ICT for Increasing Productivity in mechtronics manufacturing

Germany has a leading position in the development of mechatronic systems. However, manufacturers often face the following contradiction: on the one hand they themselves manufacture high-tech for the production of tomorrow and on the other hand due to the high diversity in their own production they become fragmented with to manual processes. The lack of more…

ProximityHat

ProximityHat is a wearable sensory substitution system, which uses pressure actuators around the head to convey spatial information. It was already shown that the sense of touch can be used to augment our perception of reality. Existing systems focus on vibration signals for information transfer, but this is unsuitable for constant stimulation in everyday use. Our system more…

Software Campus: AnKSeK – Anonymization techniques for automatic calibration of distributed sensor systems

In order to meet the increasing demands for high resolution and high quality environmental data, e.g. in Smart City scenarios, new approaches for sensing systems have to be considered. One alternative for using few professional measuring stations consists in crowdsourcing the data collection – Participatory Sensing. Data is collected highly distributed with mobile and inexpensive more…

Software Campus: FeinPhone

The ubiquity of mobile networks and smartphones in principle offers an excellent infrastructure for participatory environmental measurements, e.g. in Smart City scenarios. Modern smartphones are already equipped with a variety of internal sensors. In some current models, even environmental sensors for measuring temperature, humidity and air pressure can be found. However, phenomena such as the more…
