07 June 2022 - Project Kick-off LevelOut

Platform with input and output data

In the BMDV-funded project "LevelOut", we study the automated retrieval of floorplans for city maps and navigation models. More information can be found in the project profile and our press release (German only). A public kick-off event will take place on Thursday, 16 June 2022, 14 hrs, at Dresden New Town Hall. It is also possible to follow the event from remote. Anyone interested is kindly asked to register via email to helga.tauscher@uni-weimar.de.

01 June 2022 - New employee at the chair

We welcome Subhashini Krishnakumar as a new scientific staff member.

Before joining our team, Ms Krishnakumar has been studying "Geodesy and Geoinformation Science" in the Master's programm at TU Berlin. In her Master's thesis she worked on the "Evaluation of 3D Modeling and Reconstruction Techniques of Indoor Scenes for their Integration with Geographic Information in Game Engines". She has successfully created a virtual 3D tour for the main building of TU Berlin with interactive elements in the Unity game engine.

With her background in geoinformatics she is a great addition to our interdisciplinary team. She will work in the mFUND-project "LevelOut" where she will develop a unified indoor model and routines to export to the various data formats for indoor maps and navigation models.

04 April 2022 - Kick-off for course "Computer Science for Engineers"

Dr. Ing Helga Tauscher, deputy professor, will deliver the first lecture on April 4th, 2022 at 1.30 p.m. and launch the course "Computer Science for Engineers". On Mondays, the lecture will take place online and can be accessed via moodle: "Informatik für Ingenieure - Vorlesung SoSe2022".

01 April 2022 - New substitute professor

Dr.-Ing. Helga Tauscher takes up the substitute professorship for "Computing in Civil Engineering". Dr.-Ing. Kristina Doycheva, the previous chair holder, is moving to the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. We wish Dr. Kristina Doycheva all the best in her new phase of life and thank her for her work at the professorship.

 

01 August 2022 - New employee at the chair

We welcome Benjamin Burse as a new scientific staff member.

Before joining our team, Mr. Burse earned a Bachelor's degree in "Media Informatics" and a Master's degree in "Computer Science for Digital Media" from Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. As a result of his broad education and training, he can contribute knowledge from a variety of computer science fields to our team.

Mr. Burse's Bachelor's thesis focused on techniques for embedding watermarks in digital signals. With his Master's thesis, he studied modern microcontrollers and expanded his expertise in embedded systems. For this purpos, he examined the extent to which microcontrollers can constitute a cost-effective yet powerful alternative to well-known single-board computers.
