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…

Biosignals Workshop in Erfurt

Also in the week of DAGA but between the 21st to the 23rd March the Biosignals Workshop took place in the protestant monastery of St. Augustine in Erfurt. The topic was innovative processing of bioelectric and biomagnetic signals and was organized by the technical VDE committees „Biosignals“ and „Magnetic Methods in Medicine“. The DSS group (Christin and Eric) participated with two contributions in cooperation with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt at the workshop. We would like to thank the committees and the…

DAGA Conference 2018 Munich

On 19th to 22nd March the 44th DAGA conference was held in Munich, Germany with about 1500 participants. The DSS group also participated with 9 contributions and the attendance at the conference. On the occasion of 150 years TUM it was a double conference together with the GAMM Conference of the Society of Applied Math and Mechanic. Topics like machine learning for speech diagnostics, evaluation of speech communication systems, detection and tracking for SONAR systems, underwater acoustics, anti-noise systems for…

German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology and Functional Imaging (DGKN) in Berlin

The 62th German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology and Functional Imaging (DGKN) conference was held in Berlin with about 1778 participants on 15th to 17nd March. Eric (DSS group) and Franziska Weitkamp (Department of Neurology, UKSH) also participated with one Poster and the attendance at the conference. We presented a new electrical approach to optimize the diagnostic specificity. We presented multichannel electric nerve conduction studies in combination with ultrasound, which resulted in a finer grained functional-spatial characterization of the nerve. We…

New PhDs in the DSS Team

Since January this year we have two new PhD students in the team: Elke Warmerdam and Finn Spitz. Elke is from Amsterdam and she works in the neurology department in the university hospital in the group of Prof. Maetzler. Her research topic is movement analysis of patients with neurologic disorders. Elke cooperates with us in signal processing related aspects of her research. Elke plays volleyball and goes everywhere by bike. Finn is working on speech analysis and therapy improvement for…
