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.

22.03.21 We Commemorate the Year Since the First Person in the Czech Republic Died in Connection With the Covid-19 Disease

Dear colleagues, dear students, Today is a year since the COVID epidemic claimed its first victim in the Czech Republic. Over the past year, almost 25,000 people have succumbed to the epidemic, a memory of which we will commemorate today with a minute's silence at 12 noon. Please also join this silent memory.

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.

02.02.21 Take a virtual walk through an exhibition on the history of computer technology at the National Technical Museum

The box with two thousand punched labels had a capacity of 240 kB, the current USB flash drives are usually 16 GB. This fact illustrates the dizzyingly rapid development of information technology, which is not comparable to any other field of technology. The exhibition Czech Footprint in the History of Computer Science, prepared by the National Technical Museum and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague, is devoted to the historical development of computer technology, including a domestic contribution to this event. Thanks to prof. PhDr. Marcela Efmertová, CSc., Ing. Božena Mannová, Ph.D., Ing. and Mgr. Zbyněk Nikel and Mgr. and Ing. Vít Holeček we can commemorate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Czech Technical University.

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.
