19.04.21 Students Fight Bravely With Distance Learning. They Put Together Some Remarkable Projects at Home

For more than a year, electrical engineering students have not had access to teaching laboratories due to the pandemic situation. But if they are to become quality developers, practical training is a must. Teachers from the Department of Measurement of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE) therefore use home laboratory teaching or a remote teaching laboratory in their subjects. Despite more complex conditions, interesting projects are being created even within distance practical teaching. Students are preparing, for example, a muscular activity sensor, an autonomous module for growing flowers or monitoring a chicken coop.

26.04.21 Researchers from the Department of Telecommunication Engineering Have Developed a Probe for Contactless Monitoring of Energy Consumption

The box, which attaches to the power cord, can measure the consumption of any appliance and send it remotely via the Internet of Things (IoT). This is how the intelligent probe for non-contact indication of appliance activity and energy consumption works, which is currently undergoing the last phase of field testing within the Smart Solutions for Prague project. This unique probe was developed by experts from the Department of Telecommunication Engineering. The difference from existing standard energy reading solutions is that the innovative "En-Meter M" probe does not have to be connected to the electrical circuit and can be used to monitor electricity consumption virtually anywhere and anytime.

13.04.21 CTU FEE study: The Czech heating industry does not have to be an obstacle to meeting climate goals, but it needs innovative investments

In the Czech Republic, more than 300,000 households still use coal for local heating. Four out of ten Czech households are then heated from the heat supply system, with 60% of the heat being produced on the basis of coal. Experts from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering suggest how to get rid of harmful emissions, how much it will cost and how to invest.

31.03.21 Remote Monitoring of Lung Fans and Monitors of Vital Functions Helps to Solve Deficiency of Experts

The VENT-CONNECT project, which enables remote monitoring of lung ventilators and vital signs monitors, especially in patients with COVID-19 connected to artificial lung ventilation, passed the preclinical phase and received a positive opinion from the ethics committee of the Royal Vinohrady University Hospital (FNKV). The technical solution developed by the team of the Czech Technical University in Prague composed of researchers from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) and the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering in cooperation with the Department of Anaesthesiology and Resuscitation (KAR) streamlines condition monitoring for patients in the infection zone with remote access to ventilator screens and vital signs monitors. This allows physicians to adjust lung ventilator parameters more accurately during treatment, which of course leads to better patient care. The solution is cheap and easy to deploy in other workplaces, be it COVID-19 or others.

25.03.21 Beethoven Would Wonder: Lego Robot Plays “For Elise”

Ludwig van Beethoven would probably be very surprised to hear his RHPv2 song For Elise. The latest robot from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering plays a composition that belongs to the repertoire of beginning pianists on electronic keyboards, but will soon be able to handle more demanding works on the large piano grand piano in Zenger's lecture hall.

17.03.21 Our researchers are developing a new concept of air purifier that can sterilize air in buildings, as well as in cars and planes

The new air purifier concept relies on the filter material, which can be sterilized by electric current and reused. An innovative solution, the development of which was worked on last year by the team of doc. Lukáš Vojtěch and Ing. Marek Neruda from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, has all the prerequisites to become an effective means of collective protection against viruses such as COVID-19. It can also be used in air conditioning or ventilation systems of buildings or means of passenger and public transport, including cars, ships or planes.

25.01.21 Doctoral students from the Department of Control Engineering built a robot banking on two legs

Concept taken from the ETH University of Zurich, but completely original design using commonly available technologies and components-the new experimental robot called SK8O ('Skate-o') is created on the premises of the Department of Control Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, and can balance on two legs with wheels. It will be used to teach dynamic driving, in the final he should be able to jump over obstacles or jump up the stairs while driving. Until recently, the dynamic movement of the robot conceived in this way belonged more to the science fiction realm.

11.01.21 Prof. Petr Kulhánek from our faculty received the Award of the Minister of Education for excellent educational activities

Among this year's five winners of the Award of the Minister of Education, Youth and Sports for outstanding educational activities at the university is the theoretical physicist prof. RNDr. Petr Kulhánek, CSc., From the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

03.01.21 Doc. Helisová: Probability and Statistics (video course)

The students are introduce to the theory of probability and mathematical statistics. Random events, conditional probability and random variables are defined, examples of the most common random variables are mentioned, and estimating parameters and hypotheses testing is explained. All the computing methods are shown on practical examples.
