05.03.19 Our experts have warned against the potential error of some GPS receivers

The so-called rollover, or the GPS Week number overflow, will occur on the night of 6 to 7 April. Experts compare this situation to the Y2K problem of the year 2000. The US Homeland Security Office, the Cyber Security Center, and even the ICAO have already issued warnings. Scientists at the Department of Radioelectronics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, have already turned to the first Czech subjects with questions about testing and verification of their facilities. It is they who have experience with the development of the so-called Navigation, have developed several own GPS receivers, as well as the Russian GLONASS system, European Galileo and others. These people have been active in the Czech, European and international field of satellite and radio navigation for more than 40 years. And so thanks to its equipment and experience, several receivers have been tested for this situation and the public calmed down.

28.02.19 EuMCE 2019 - European Microwave Conference in Central Europe

European Microwave Association (EuMA) is launching a new series of conferences focusing on the development of microwave theory and technology primarily (but not only) in the Central European region. The first of these conferences - EuMCE 2019 - will be held in Prague. More information about EuMCE 2019, local organization, conference fee (it starts at 200 EUR, resp. at 100 EUR in case of students), important dates etc. can be found at webpage www.eumce.com.
EuMCE 2019 will be held from May 13 to 15 at Prague Congress Center. It will be associated with an Exhibition organized by Horizon House. We expect about 30 exhibitors – including e.g. Keysight Technologies, Rohde-Schwarz, etc.

28.02.19 We are setting up a new research center on drive by wire

A new Smart Driving Solutions research center has been created at the Department of Control Engineering. A team of 13 scientists led by Ing. Tomáš Haniš, Ph.D., aims to change the paradigm and to prepare the ground for the new technology of active dynamic driving, which has long been used in aviation industry. Experts from the department have been focusing on a long-term drive-by-wire concept, in which the driver does not control the wheels or car engine directly, but through an electronic control unit that has full control over the chassis. It is a technological revolution already underway by the aviation industry (so-called fly by wire systems are common in transport aircraft and fighters), but the automotive industry has not yet done so because of the conservative approach of the carmakers. Ing. Tomáš Haniš, Ph.D., is a researcher and developer who is coming to CTU with experience from Porsche Engineering Services and Rolls-Royce (aerospace division).
