This April is very "productive" in terms of "PhD generation". On April 20th and 20st we had another two PhD defenses within the DSS team. First Vasudev Kandade Rajan defended successfully his research on (speech) signal processing for microphones that are integrated in seat belts. The very next day Jochen Withopf gave his "PhD talk" on in-car communication systems - also very successful.

Vasudev Kandade Rajan has investigated and implemented a multi-channel (for a multitude of loudspeakers, phone channels, and microphones) hands-free system. Special emphasis was put on the support of so-called belt microphones (sensors that are integrated in the security belts of cars). The project was done in close cooperation with the company "paragon". Vasu, congratulations from all of us!

Jochen Withopf has done research on so-called in-car communication systems, both in terms of theoretical analyses and practical implementations in our research cars. Jochen has worked in close cooperation with the Daimler. Also for you Jochen, congratulation from the entire DSS team.

Special thanks go to Prof. Dr. Tim Fingscheidt and Prof. Dr. Rainer Martin for being the second reviewers of the two PhD defenses.

Finally we should mention that April is not yet over. Let's see what the remaining week of April will bring.
