Philipp is now "Doc Bulling"

On Monday, 10th of September 2018, Philipp Bulling sucessfully defended his dissertation on speech enhancement for in-car communication systems. His work focused mainly on the control of adaptive feedback cancellation filters (details can be found here). After an excellent talk Philipp gave very good answers to the questions of the committee and at around 11:30 h everythings war over and we had a small celebration (thanks also to Philipp's parents for preparing that part of the defense). An finally of…

Summer Event 2018

Last Friday we clebrated our yearly summer event in combinantion with the summer meeting of the Gesellschaft für angewandte Signalverarbeitung e.V. First, the year was reviewed from the perspective of the professors (talk from Gerhard Schmidt), the Ph.D. students (talk from Finn Spitz), and the bachelor and master students (talk from Jonas Weiss and Alexander Wilbrandt). Afterwards Eric Elzenheimer (as beeing member of the executive Committee of GaS e.V.) handed over the price for the best thesis in the area…

New Low-delay Audio Hardware

Anton and Alexej are ready now with the preparation of our new low-delay hardware for our embedded lab. The hardware, so-called bela boards, can handle up to 10 inputs and 10 outputs and can operate with a round-trip delay of about 1 ms. The boards are programmed in C/C++ and allow for very "nice" audio examples. Currently we implement speech enhancement algorithms, anti-noise systems, and virtual reality approaches (in terms of "audio-only reality") as student projects using the boards. If…

Christening our First Boat

On July, 19th we christened our (first) small ship. It got the name "MISSy", which stands for "MIMO SONAR System". We did this at the "Kitzeberger Strand". Beside having a small party due to the event, we also did several measurements. One of them was testing a first version of our underwater telephone system. One subscriber was located at the pier, while the second one were Thorben and Alexej cruising with MISSy about 100 to 200 m in front of…

New Lecture - Fundamentals of Acoustics

Starting this winter term the DSS group offers a new lecture entiteled "Fundamentals of Acoustcs". The lecture is given by Dr. Jan Abshagen (see picture). It will be a 3+1 lecture which takes place once a week. The lecture will cover the following topics: fundamentals of vibrations, theory of sound fields, sound and systems, transducers, sound-structure interaction, ship acoustics, acoustic sensor systems, underwater noise measurement, impulsive underwater noise , oceanographic instruments. Further details can be found here.

Best Master Degree in Economics Engineering of the Year 2018 for Christin Bald

On Friday, 29th of June, the Faculty of Engineering had the traditional summer event. During that event also the best finshing students of each study programme were honored. Christin Bald who started last year her Ph.D. in our group was the best finishing student in the Master programme "Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen". Christin, congratulations from all of us. Furthermore, Seedo Paul, who attended virtually all of the DSS lectures and did also his master thesis with us (anti-noise helmets for fire fighters), was…

Next MISSy Test

On July, 28th we had our next test with MISSy. This time our second approach of our steering concept as well as the GPS module in KiRAT were tested in terms of hard- and software. Furthermore, we decided to go to an (for us) unknown beach area and see if we were able to put MISSy quickly and savely into water. The "water test" including the test of our trailor extenstion was very successful. Everythink works as expected. However, we…

Highschool Students Visiting the DSS Department

On Wednesday the 20th of June, several highschool students of the first senior classes of the Isarnwohld School Gettorf visited the DSS department. Therefore, Prof. Schmidt gave a talk about possible professions for electrical engineers (especially with focus on signal processing) at the Isarnwohld School two days before. So the highschool students could think about the addressed topics and are prepared for the applications shown on Wednesday. At the event on Wednesday first some students of the electrical engineering department…

DSS Participation in the Lecture Series "Language and Society"

Prof. Anja Leue from the psychology department of our university organized a lecture series on the topic "language and society". Also the DSS group participated in that event and we presented some of our results on speech in disturbed environments. The lecture took place on Thursday, 5th of May, in one of the lecture rooms in the Audimax building. After the talk, a nice, interesting (and for our field) long discussion took place. Here is the contents of the DSS…
