On Thursday, 25th of April, members of the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) visited our DSS group at the technical faculty.

Our visitors first listened to a talk about the work of our department – real-time signal processing for sensors in the field of medicine, speech and sonar.

Afterwards we showed our guests some live demos regarding our research fields. We would like to thank our visitors for the nice evening with very interesting discussions!

On Monday, 27th of May, CASSy - our new research platform for underwater signal processing arrived at the technical faculty. Thorben, Alexej, and Owe "pulled" her home from Wismar, where she was produced. CASSy is financed by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and, of course, we deliver a very big thank you to the DFG for the support.

Beside CASSy (the ship) we will get also a new MIMO-SONAR hardware (also funded by the DFG) that allows for new SONAR and communication modes, which we are happy to investigate in the near future.

On Tuesday, July 2nd, we did the first test of our new underwater drone at the beach of Möltenort (near Mönkeberg). The new drone is able to do high resolution unterwater pictures and videos, which allows us to see how our underwater research equipment is "behaving" below MISSy and CASSy (our two research vessels). The drone is controlled via WIFI with a remote station that swims on the water. The drone is connected to the remote station via a 50 m cable which is also the range of our "missions". Now we are prepared for the next steps with our SONAR research. 


Thorben, Kevin, Tobias and Bastian extended our framework and the tools that are supporting it such that one the one hand TensorFlow is supported now and - on the other hand - that KiRAT is now fully functional also with the operating system Linux. The support of TensorFlow is important since it allows to train our models offline with this important tool, but to realize the corresponding estimations and decisions in real-time in KiRAT. Well done, Gentleman.

Last Tuesday, we decided to do our three-weekly science slam at the beach in Mönkeberg. Since it was very warm the days before we planned to combine this science slam with a picknick at the beach. However, at this specific day the temperature dropped a lot and we had really strong wind and also some rain. Thus, we did the science slam, but returned afterwards to the faculty and had our picknick there. Anyhow, it was fun to have another outside sience slam as you can see at the picture.

TensorFlow and Escape Rooms

The last two days (Monday and Tuesday, September 16 and 17, 2019), the whole DSS team did a course on TensorFlow and Keras. Since we already have interfaces of TensorFlow to our real-time tool KiRAT, it was time now to extend our knowledge on graphs and the corresponding training of weights, biases, etc. After two days of hard work we booked two escape rooms and solved the "secrets" hidden in ...
