On April 21 and 22, 2021, Mr. Sven Fröhlich is the virtual guest of our faculty from TU Dresden, "Friedrich List" Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, Institute of Transport Telematics, Chair of Traffic Control and Process Automation.
Among other things, he is a member of a team that is developing applications for smartphones that help manage and coordinate cycling in Dresden (Germany). At the chair, they also address the issue of intelligent transport systems in the city of Dresden. They are developing a few research projects where they use access to data from a number of different types of sensors - a lot of the data is geographic in nature - mostly using open source solutions.
Link to the lecture - Lecture by Mr. Sven Fröhlich - TU Dresden - the lecture will take place on Wednesday 21.04.2021 at 15:00.
In addition to the lecture, Mr. Sven Fröhlich will also have exercises in the "Geographic Information Systems" course. Students will get access to the data that will enable them to deal with the issue of map-matching when evaluating the records and tracks of vehicles based on GNSS.
We would like to invite you to 2 lectures of our graduate Ing. Samuel Hopko, on the topic of "Engineering in the cloud", which will include topics related to container orchestration (Kubernetes). The lectures will take place on 14.4.2021 and 21.4.2021, starting at 13:00 via the Zoom platform and will be in English. They will be recorded for internal use, but due to the GDPR, the names of the participants will not be displayed or stored anywhere.
Below are the lines for the meeting.
International Conference on Information and Digital Technologies 2021 will be held in Faculty of Management Science and Informatics from June 22nd, 2021 till June 24th, 2021. The papers presented at the Conference and included in the IDT 2021 Proceedings will be considered for indexing in Scopus.
We would like to invite you to participate in the second Slovak online mapping party (mapathon). Considering the current situation with Covid-19, the mapathons are organized as the online events.
We will help the Doctors without Borders by our mapathon. The volunteers will participate from Slovakia and the Czech Republic. We had the participants from Italy, Germany and Bangladesh in our first Slovak online mapathon in December 2020.
During our volunteer event, we will create a map of the area that is affected by some kind of humanitarian crisis. Our help will enable more effective and faster assistance to people in need.
What is the mapathon?
The mapathon participants work with the satellite images to map the uncovered places of the world (so called Missing maps). They are using the open source tools in online environment of the OpenStreetMap. Participants create new map layers of buildings and roads.
Our mapathon will take on Thursday, February 25, from 04:00 p.m., Central European Time. The link for joining the event will be published later here. We would like to ask all interested in the event to use the application form on Eventbrite.
Do not worry that you have no experience with the digital mapping. You can learn all during the event. You will be able to create the map objects after the short training. Please, create a new OpenStreetMap account in case you do not posses it.
Details of the Missing Maps mapathons organized in Slovakia are available on Missing Maps Slovakia project web.
The Erasmus+ KA203 project led by the Faculty of Management Science and Informatics - "Education of Future ICT Experts Based on Smart Society Needs" will continue from Monday, February 15, 2021, with the second blended mobility.
