The student team presented the first self-driving electrical formula in the Czech Republic at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering
Two new student formulas were revealed on 4 September after technical presentations. Despite the cancellation of all international Formula Student races, the eForce FEE Prague Formula team did not slow down in development and presented the invited guests with a complete novelty in addition to the optimized electric formula model - a self-driving formula that the team was the first to construct in the Czech Republic. Both formulas have won several awards this summer in online alternatives to traditional international races.

The team of doc. Lukáš Vojtěch and Ing. Marek Neruda from the Department of Telecommunication Engineering, FEE has long been engaged in research and development of electrically conductive textile materials. In a record time of 3 months, the team designed and tested a prototype of a textile composite material that can be sterilized by electric current. The prototype composite consists of carbon fabrics, nanotextiles and an electrode system. The filtration concept is registered for patent protection and the team is currently looking for partners for introduction into production.

Social Worker on Mobile - a new application from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering that can help in an unfavorable life situation
Karel Zavadil, a student of the bachelor's program in Software Engineering and Technology, at Faculty of Electrical Engineering, developed a unique application Social Worker on Mobile, which aims to provide individuals in an unfavorable social situation with relevant professional assistance by filling out a simple questionnaire. The application was developed by the student Karel Zavadil himself within his diploma work, supervised by Ing. Martin Komárek from the Department of Computers. Its use is very intuitive. The application offers the user a number of simple questions and, based on the chosen answers, evaluates the situation and suggests further action, including contacts to specific workplaces in the area as social service providers, authorities and non-profit organizations.

A student from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering designed a test tube opener manufactured on a 3D printer. It is already used by seven Czech laboratories and can be printed free of charge by anyone
At the beginning of April, the doctor RNDr. Lenka Richterové, Ph.D. contacted a group of CTU researchers who automate Covid-19 testing using pipetting robots in the Na Bulovce Hospital, where she works. Researchers and students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE) and the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) were asked whether they could design a tool to facilitate the opening of test tubes. The current procedure of manual opening is very impractical and ultimately dangerous. It requires inserting a finger into the recess of the lid, turning it and then unfolding it. According to Richterová, this method followed by the lab technicians causes calluses and painful blisters that burst. In addition, tilting the cap to the side causes bubbles to contaminate the outside of the tube and laboratory gloves. And using more layers of gloves would make it impossible to hold the tube and cap firmly.

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.

Algorithm by the scientists from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering CTU in Prague will help automate coronavirus testing at the Motol University Hospital
Scientists and students from the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Electrical Engineering CTU (FEE CTU) in cooperation with the Faculty of Science, Charles University and the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) are working on automation of COVID-19 sample testing for the Motol University Hospital. The algorithm currently being developer is designed to allow hospital pipetting robots to handle samples quickly and safely, avoiding cross-contamination. The involvement of the Opentrons and Beckman Biomek 3000 robots will make it possible to use test kits newly developed at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry AS CR (IOCB AS CR) and can have a major impact on the testing process. If successful, it will replace the work of the laboratory technicians, who will be given room to carry out other activities related to fighting the coronavirus. New software could be deployed during Easter.

•• Coronavirus 2019-nCoV (Instructions from CTU in Prague) ••
An infection that is spreading from the city of Wuhan, China. This influenza-like infection can be highly dangerous, especially for people with a weakened organism. Coronavirus is transmitted from person-to-person after close contact. It is a so-called contageous infection. Illness does not appear immediately, but only after a period of 7 – 14 days. After arrival from a high-risk area, use protection mask, 7 days of isolation are recommended, within which time any signs of a respiratory illness should appear, i.e. shortness of breath, coughing, and high temperature.
