More diversity in science – Prof. Monti as a scout in the Henriette Heart Scouting Program

July 29th, 2021 | by

The Henriette Herz Scouting Program, funded by the BMBF, aims to expand and diversify the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s network. The program specifically recruits established and experienced researchers who already have an international network. It enables the scouts to select up to three scientists who will then directly receive a fellowship. The first will go to a female researcher.
The scouts aim to approach international researchers from abroad who have not yet been considered for an academic fellowship to the Humboldt Foundation and a research stay in Germany. As a result, the program will attract new collaborative partners for Germany, both from a specialist and geographical perspective. At the same time, the aim is to increase the quota of women sponsored in the Humboldt Research Fellowship Programme.

We are very pleased that Prof. Antonello Monti has been selected for the Henriette Herz Scouting Program.

“The program offers us the possibility to increase our international cooperation by creating new links with universities that are not currently working with us.
What is extremely interesting about this program is the possibility to be really fast in offering the scholarship. By skipping the standard review process, the time between identification of candidates to the start of the scholarship becomes extremely short.” – Prof. Monti

RWTH spin-off acquired – Silexica now belongs to Xilinx Inc.

July 2nd, 2021 | by

RWTH spin-off Silexia, founded in 2014 at the Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems, was acquired this past week by Xilinx, Inc. the current market leader in adaptive computing. Founded by Maximilian Odendahl, Johannes Emigholz, Dr. Weihua Sheng, Prof. Jeronimo Castrillon and Prof. Rainer Leupers within the UMIC Cluster of Excellence, the start-up was initially funded through the BMBF’s EXIST- program, and early industrial technology sponsors included Huawei and Samsung. Since then, the company has raised a total of around US$28 million from international investors and has become a leading provider of C/C++ programming and analysis tools for multicore and FPGA system-on-chip architectures.

Awardees of the Brigitte-Gilles-Award 2020

March 24th, 2021 | by

The Brigitte Gilles Award 2020 honors projects and initiatives that improve the conditions for women’s study, teaching, and research at the university. In this way, they contribute to increasing the number of female scientists and students in courses with a low representation of women.
We congratulate all the winners but are especially pleased for the two winners from our faculty. Professor Janina Fels and Ms. Karin Loh from the Chair and Institute of Hearing Technology and Acoustics (IHTA) were awarded for their initiative “The interactive world of acoustics for big and small children”. Here, concepts were developed that enable girls between the ages of three and twelve to explore and learn about hearing and acoustics in a playful and interactive way.
The awards were presented in a total of four categories and are endowed with up to 2500 euros. The awards in the other categories were given to the following researchers and projects: Katharina Müller from the Chair of Production Systems, the project “Hlumani – giving the future a fair chance” from the Chair of Landscape Architecture at RWTH, the University of Stuttgart, and the University of Cape Town and Dr. Anna Stertz from the Chair and Institute of Psychology.

IKS Startup – Elevear

March 8th, 2021 | by

Digital ear-opening – Hearing aids and other hearables often cause wearers to perceive their own voice in a distorted way, and chewing, swallowing, and even walking also generate unpleasant noise. The reason for this is the so-called occlusion effect, which occurs when headphones or hearing aids close off the auditory canal. This problem is addressed by the startup Elevear, which emerged from the Institute for Communication Systems and was successfully founded by Stefan Liebich, Johannes Fabry, Raphael Brandis, and Elfed Howells on February 4, 2021. Their Occlear® technology suppresses the occlusion effect and allows natural voice perception.
The project has already received the RWTH Innovation Award in 2019 and was accepted into the RWTH Incubation Program in January 2021 as one of twelve outstanding founding teams.

Hybrid Provision of Energy based on Reliabilty and Resiliancy via Integration of Dc Equipment

February 26th, 2021 | by

The project HYPERRIDE started on 1 October 2020. The four-year project contributes to the field implementation of DC and hybrid AC-DC grids. It will actively identify and provide solutions to overcome barriers to successful roll-out of new infrastructure concepts throughout Europe.

The Institute for Automation of Complex Power Systems (ACS) will concentrate its work on the development of automation services for the hybrid AC/DC grid. The focus here is on optimal power flow and fault management, as well as on the realization of a metering device specifically dedicated to DC technology: the DC Measurement Unit (DMU).

These solutions will be integrated into the open ICT platform, specifically tailored for integration with hybrid AC/DC distribution systems, and tested, among the others, in the demo site of the RWTH Aachen Campus Melaten.

Successful milestone reached at the halfway point for the NEUROTEC Project after one year

January 28th, 2021 | by

Neurotec

The successful acceptance of the central milestone by the project management organisation VDI/VDE/IT at the end of November 2020 marks the first successful stage on the path to the electronics of the future for the NEUROTEC structural change project funded by the BMBF.

The vision of the alliance of Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH is that future computers for artificial intelligence (AI) should increasingly come from Germany and the EU and thus contribute to Europe’s technological sovereignty. This will involve the use of new types of hardware that are more closely modelled on the brain.

One speciality of the alliance of Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH is the smallest electronic components that can be used for neuromorphic computing and that can be connected to conventional microelectronics.
Now, in NEUROTEC I, the concepts are being tested, and in the NEUROTEC II project, demonstrators are being sought that will show the new possibilities in laboratory samples.

You can find more information on the website of Forschungszentrum Jülich.

DFG priority program AUDICTIVE

December 7th, 2020 | by

Within the framework of the priority program AUDICTIVE of the DFG (German Research Foundation) three projects with the participation of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Janina Fels were approved. On the one hand, the coordination project, which focuses on interdisciplinary exchange and research data management, was approved. On the other hand, the project “Listening to, and remembering conversations between two talkers: Cognitive research using embodied conversational agents in audiovisual virtual environments”, which is a joint proposal with Prof. Dr. Torsten W. Kuhlen and Prof. Dr. Sabine J. Schlittmeier, will be funded. Furthermore, the project “Evaluating cognitive performance in classroom scenarios using audiovisual virtual reality – ECoClass-VR”, which is a joint proposal with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Alexander Raake, TU Ilmenau and apl. Prof. Dr. Maria Klatte, TU Kaiserslautern, will be funded.
The priority program “Auditory Cognition in Interactive Virtual Environments – AUDICTIVE” is intended to make it possible, by linking the three disciplines – acoustics, cognitive psychology and virtual reality/computer science – to significantly expand the knowledge about hearing-related cognitive performance in real scenes and thus to realize the development of an “auditory-cognitive-validated” VR technology. By applying interactive VR technology, it should be possible to understand auditory perception in complex audiovisual scenes that are close to real life. Situations such as classrooms, open-plan offices, multi-party communication or outdoor scenarios with multiple (and moving) sound sources should be better understood with the help of the results.
