Summer School on Cooperation of Robots and Sensor Networks

Heterogeneous networks of sensors and unmanned vehicles open avenues for a class of novel applications. Tasks ranging from environmental monitoring to user support within emergency-response scenarios require fundamental and multidisciplinary research, typically spanning Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering topics in robotics, control, communication, and middleware. While the first two summer schools of this series concentrated on research problems within these different domains, this year the focus is on the combination of all involved areas in the context of real-world scenarios. This is tackled by an array of devices ranging from inexpensive, tiny, low power sensor nodes, through unmanned autonomous vehicles to resource rich and powerful command stations. Such a heterogeneity in communication mechanisms, processing capabilities, and inherent mobility of the different devices constitutes a so-called Mixed-Mode Environment.

Goals

This international summer school surveys research areas in the domain of Mixed-Mode Environments and targets to identify novel opportunities and research directions. The lectures will be held by renowned speakers from academia and industry.

The summer school will also provide an excellent opportunity to get in contact with known researchers working in this field, to meet distinguished scholars, and to establish contacts that may lead to research collaborations in the future.

As a special novelty, this year’s program will include a “Mixed-Mode-Challenge” across the school attendees. During the week, all participants will have the opportunity to work together in small groups and develop solutions for an interdisciplinary task involving mobile robots and stationary sensors nodes. First, the groups will validate their approaches in simulation and finally transfer them to real hardware. It is intended to use TurtleBots for the evaluation. The group with the best performing approach will be awarded a special prize.

Participation

The intended audience are young researchers and PhD students from universities and industrial laboratories around the world. As the number of attendees is limited, prospective participants should apply online providing a brief description of their research.

The summer school registration fee is 450 Euro. All rooms are shared between two people.

The summer school will take place in the historical Castle Ebernburg. The registration fee includes accommodation at Castle Ebernburg, all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee breaks), several social events and all study materials.

Organization

The summer school is organized by the Research Training Group Cooperative, Adaptive and Responsive Monitoring in Mixed Mode Environments, funded by the German Research Foundation, DFG, under grant GRK 1362.

Networked Embedded Systems: Humans in the Loop

The Cooperating Objects Network of Excellence (CONET) is organising another Summer School this year. Like the 2009 edition, the school goes back to Bertinoro International Center for Informatics (BiCi), (Forlì-Cesena), Italy and will be held on 24 – 30 July, 2011.

Sensor networks, cyber-physical systems, and cooperating objects are becoming an important part of our daily life. Humans build, deploy, use, and maintain these systems that can sense our activities and influence our behaviour. We will increasingly rely on these networked embedded systems, therefore also requiring a secure and privacy-preserving treatment of sensitive human-centric data. Novel paradigms and solutions are also needed to allow humans to interact with these systems.

The goal of the summer school is to survey fundamental and applied aspects of networked embedded systems and their relationship to humans, as well as to identify novel opportunities and research directions in these areas through a series of lectures by international experts. Participants will also experience the relevant technologies during hands-on courses and be given a chance to present their own work during a participants’ workshop. The school will provide a great opportunity to know other people working in the field, to meet distinguished scholars, and to establish contacts that may lead to research collaborations in the future. We expect about 60 participants. The intended audience are postgraduate students, PhD students, and young researchers from universities and industrial laboratories around the world.

Contiki Crash Course

Contiki Crash Course

Participants to the CONET SENIOT Summer School held in Bertinoro, Italy, this summer had the opportunity to attend an interesting hands-on session with basic exercises with the Contiki Operating System for WSN. Material from the course is available online, you could download the slides from the presentation and session notes. The material is self consistent so you could try it out too!

Contiki, developed mostly at SICS since 2003, has reached a level of stability that is interesting to explore further and it also has a growing community of users. Earlier this month, two new ports were made avaialbe: Crosbow MicaZ and Sensinode, besides other platforms already supported.
