  • Master Thesis

    Have you ever asked yourself, if it‘s possible to reliably perform real-time tasks over the Internet? What if a connection is overloaded or a server crashes?

    I‘m looking for students who want to help shape the future Internet by developing a new transport protocol to enable ultra-low latency edge computing through situation-dependent server redundancy.

    I‘ve got a proof of concept and now we need a more capable transport protocol to improve it.

    As part of your supervision, you‘ll be participating in our Oberseminar, where we discuss all student projects in a relaxed and collaborative atmosphere, and give you insights into scientific work. Your own Ideas are welcome!

  • Bachelor Thesis

    Du hast Lust, dich tief in ein Thema einzuarbeiten und suchst die Herausforderung, die existierende Literatur zu ordnen und in Kontext zu setzen?

    Der etablierte Ansatz, Rechenleistung und Speicherkapazität in riesigen Rechenzentren zu bündeln gerät mehr und mehr an seine Grenzen, da der physische Abstand zu den Nutzern den erreichbaren Antwortzeiten physikalische Limitierungen auferlegt.

    Unter der Bezeichnung „Edge-Computing“ versteht man den Versuch, viele kleinere Rechenzentren geographisch zu verteilen, um kürzere Verbindungen zu deren Clients herzustellen.

    In dieser Bachelorarbeit sollen die existierenden Modelle für Quality-of-Service-Garantien für Edge-Computing (betrifft auch ggf. übertragbare Ansätze aus dem Cloud-Bereich) systematisch identifiziert, untersucht und verglichen werden, um bessere Entscheidungen über deren zukünftige Entwicklung treffen zu können.

    Motion detection and segmentation is an important task for urban scene understanding. It is used by automated vehicles to build dynamic occupancy grids to plan their navigation. While deep learning-based approaches achieve good results in motion detection and segmentation with RGB images, designing neural networks that process 3D point clouds for the same task is quite challenging.

    In a large-scale urban environment, different navigation patterns can be extracted from data. These patterns are governed by numerous factors, such as social rules and the spatiotemporal context. Neuro-symbolic modeling integrates symbolic reasoning and machine-learning-based representations altogether. It represents, consequently, a promising approach to model large-scale motion patterns that are governed by rules and uncertainty at the same time.

    Neuro-symbolic modeling integrates symbolic reasoning and machine-learning-based representations altogether. For the case of autonomous driving, neuro-symbolic modeling is considered as a promising approach to represent the rule based-yet-uncertain navigation process for autonomous vehicles.

    The recent advances in smart city infrastructure have provided support for a higher adoption of surveillance cameras as a mainstream crime prevention measure. However, a consequent massive deployment raises concerns about privacy issues among citizens. Augmented reality (AR) offers the needed flexibility to alter the visual data captured by cameras to achieve the needed trade-off between privacy and security.

    Augmented Reality (AR) technology is enabling different applications that enhance the interaction of users with the real world. In city planning, management, and showcasing, maquettes have been widely used to have a broad view of the whole urban environment in a convenient size. However, such view is in general quite limited, when considering all the contextual information that might be necessary to analyze the environment. While projections combined with explanatory descriptions can be considered a useful workaround, they are restricted in terms of the amount of information that can be displayed and the number of stakeholders that can be served at the same time.

    Existent Map services, such as Google Maps and Apple Maps, are great tools to get directions and some related information to navigate through urban environments. In spite of this, when it comes to situations where specialized or specific contextual information associated to the environment is needed those services are quite limited.

    Smart environments require to recognize users and their activities in an effective and unobtrusive manner. In spite of the important advances in this area, most approaches are evaluated in very small datasets that hardly represent scenarios that can be considered fully realistic.

    In the event of an emergency, such as a fire, a flooding, or an earthquake, first respondents are required to asses the situation and act promptly in scenarios that typically involve obstructions. In such situations having the possibility of visualizing the objects behind the obstructions can be crucial. In spite of the recent advances in AR x-ray approaches, making them suitable to the demanding requirements of emergency scenarios is still an unresolved issue.

    Privacy is essential to preserving individuals' dignity, identity, and freedom of speech. Billions of people use applications and participate in various online services daily. However, people are mostly unaware that software and service providers often monetize their personal content and data for profits or collect usage data to infer habits and preferences. As a result of many recent data breaches and data misuse incidents, users are increasingly concerned about their privacy when using applications and digital services.

    Botnets pose a significant threat to the security of Internet based services and devices. The individual(s) behind these botnets, remotely control the infected devices to steal banking and personal information, distribute ransomware or conduct Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against websites and other Internet based services, causing millions of dollars in damage every year.

    Modern cities are becoming increasingly connected and smarter, but not everything can and should be controlled by artificial intelligence. How can people grasp and navigate the flood of data in a smart city? How can we understand past, present and (simulated) future and learn to deal with time intuitively?

  • Virtual Reality Umgebungen haben in den letzten Jahren eine Vielzahl von neuen Anwendungsszenarien ermöglicht. Durch immer günstigere Consumer-Hardware sind diese auch bei Endnutzern weiter verbreitet als je zuvor. Dennoch beschränken sich die meisten Errungenschaften auf visuelles oder auditives Feedback während haptische Komponenten weiter noch am Anfang stehen. Wir am FG Telekooperation suchen im Bereich Human-Computer Interaction daher immer nach neuen Möglichkeiten, so dass Nutzer virtuelle Welten nicht nur sehen und hören können, sondern auch haptisch und taktil wahrnehmen.

    Traditionally, users learn new movements by following instructions of an experienced coach. While this approach has proven to be effective, it depends on the availability of the coach and the user at the same time and place, and is limited by the attention span of coach/user and high costs. Moreover, during the recent pandemic’s time, traditional training with a coach becomes even more unlikely.

    An essential quality criterion of motor vehicles is their reliability. Reliability is equivalent to the likelihood that a product will operate faultlessly for a defined mileage under given operating and environmental conditions or under a given performance framework. In this context, the knowledge about the usage behavior and the resulting state of damage on public roads is a very important information. For example, this knowledge can be used to better design operating strategies and introduce predictive maintenance.

    Reconstruction of 3D models based on point cloud data has been widely studied in both computer graphics and computer vision communities. However, automatic reconstruction of models that accurately represent real-world models remains an open problem.
