Tests of the TALAKO Positioning System

Although the construction of the TALAKO prototype system has not yet been completed, the tests for vehicle positioning are already in full swing. For the tests, researchers from NES have trained an artificial neural network to recognize various features of a vehicle. In addition to the wheels, the features also […]

New Project – InnaMoRuhr

In a multidisciplinary consortium of social, economic and engineering sciences, researchers from the three UA Ruhr universities are investigating the question of how the sustainability of mobility in the Ruhr area can be improved. Funded by the Ministry of Transport of NRW, the project will develop a concept for integrated […]

FAIR Android App for Temperature Data Acquisition

A goal of the FAIR project is to improve the data basis of the Deutsche Wetterdienst (DWD). In this context, researchers from NES are investigating the suitability of modern cell phones for the automated acquisition of temperature data at a large scale. As a basis for this investigation, researches from […]

New Project – FAIR

FAIR: A user-friendly provisioning of climate and weather data Weather and climate information are the basis of planning and decisions, both in the private and in the public sector. Depending on the application, climate time series (retrospective) or forecasts (prognostic) are required. In the future, a further increase in interest […]

New Project – SMATA

SMATA: Smart platform for the data-driven networking of taxi and charging operations Taxi vehicles are particularly suitable for electrification due to their potentially long waiting periods at taxi stops. During their waiting time, electric taxis can be optimally charged. Currently, however, taxi drivers are not sufficiently aware of the availability […]

New Project – TALAKO

TALAKO: Inductive taxi charging concept for public spaces Taxi vehicles are particularly suitable for electrification due to their potentially long waiting periods at taxi stops. However, existing charging solutions for electric vehicles require taxi drivers to manually initiate and stop the charging process by connecting and disconnecting a charging cable to […]

Location-based Services Project Released

The result of the master-level project on Location-based Services that took place during the winter term 2017/18 is now available for general use. In the project, students developed a location-based service that allows users to share their location with their friends and to analyze their location history. For more information […]
