20.05.20 The development of clean energy will bring more than 300 billion crowns of investments, according to a study in which the Faculty of Electrical Engineering participates

A total of 327.5 billion crowns will come from investments to achieve the goal of developing renewable resources, which was set by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic. The amount was calculated by experts from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University and the Chamber of Renewable Energy Sources. According to a study by the Chamber, approximately 70 billion crowns of public support will be needed to trigger these investments. The Modernization Fund will be key, the conditions of which are currently being finalized by the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic.

23.04.20 Scientists from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering develop drones, which autonomously search for radiation

Experts from the group of Multirobotic Systems of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (MRS) have joined forces with the company ADVACAM, with which they are working on the development of a drone independently searching for radiation. Compared to current systems, the drone can use an advantageous combination of small size and flexibility, so the device can be used in difficult-to-access terrain. The drones will be equipped with state-of-the-art detection technology that allows you to find the radiation source up to 100 times more efficiently than is possible today, at an incomparably lower acquisition cost. The detectors will be provided by ADVACAM, a developer of state-of-the-art imaging technology, supplied by, for example, NASA. The facility will serve the police, the army, rescue services and nuclear power plants. The prototype should be ready this autumn. The product should enter international markets in about a year and a half.

16.04.20 Li-Fi in the University hospital Motol was tested by colleagues from the dept. of electromagnetic field

The researchers from the Wireless and Fibre Optics Group, Petr Chvojka and Stanislav Zvanovec, cooperated with colleagues from the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institute on the testing of a Li-Fi system in an operating room in Motol University Hospital. The results were presented at the conference OFC 2020, San Diego, USA. Also, a short interview about the experiment was published in the IEEE Spectrum magazine.
