FAIR Instructions for Building an Arduino-based Weather Station

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 simple IoT devices for the automated acquisition of temperature data at a large scale. As a basis for the investigation, a construction […]

FAIR Temperature Services

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 stationary and mobile devices for the automated acquisition of temperature data at a large scale. The technical basis for the processing of […]

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 […]
