09.06.21 The Czech Technical University in Prague collaborates with Johns Hopkins University, the University of Defence, the Czech Armed Forces and NATO ACT IH on an innovative system for monitoring soldier´s vital signs

A team of researchers from the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) is collaborating with colleagues from Johns Hopkins University, the University of Defence, the Czech Armed Forces, the NATO Allied Command Transformation Innovation Hub and the DefSec Innovation Hub on a system to assist in the treatment of wounded soldiers in combat situations or in crisis situations in which the Armed Forces assist the First Responders. The first prototype is currently being tested and will be further expanded and deployed in field tests in cooperation with the Czech Armed Forces.

11.06.21 EuroTeQ Teaching Fund projects presentations

On June 24th, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., presentations of the results of the EuroTeQ Teaching Fund call will take place in the courtyard of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering CTU in Prague - Dejvice. The event is inspired by the PechaKucha format and will also be attended by representatives of the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

31.05.21 The Faculty of Electrical Engineering opens a top laboratory for the development of advanced materials. The goal are “non-wearing” parts

The group of advanced materials, which operates within the Department of Control Engineering of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, is putting into operation a new state-of-the-art laboratory dominated by a device for preparing thin coatings by high-power pulsed magnetron sputtering. The team of Professor Tomáš Polcar will be looking for ideal materials for the modification of engineering parts. The "holy grail" is to find a coating that makes mechanical components virtually wear-free in various applications.

25.05.21 The four-legged SPOT robot was strengthened by a team of robots from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering

Of today's robots, it can overcome obstacles the fastest even in difficult terrain, it can safely climb stairs, it can wade through mud and water. The four-legged autonomous SPOT robot from Boston Dynamics joined researchers from the CTU Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE) on 3 May to strengthen their chances in the finals of the prestigious DARPA Subterranean (SubT) Challenge, which will take place from 21 to 23 September 2021 in United States of America. In addition to participating in the competition, the robot from FEE CTU will be used in follow-up research in the field of autonomous movement in an environment that is inhabited by people.

19.05.21 Amazon Research Awards: AI researchers from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering have withstood global competition

Artificial intelligence (AI) research at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University has entered the most prestigious company of 59 universities in 13 countries. Among the 101 scientists awarded by Amazon are prof. Jiří Matas from the Department of Cybernetics with a project in the field of computer vision and prof. Jan Faigl from the Department of Computers, who uses artificial intelligence to create communication maps of underground spaces.

12.05.21 The third annual CyberSec&AI Connected security conference will take place in November 2021

CTU and Avast have once again joined forces in the field of cyber security and artificial intelligence research. On November 4–5, 2021, you can look forward to the third edition of the successful CyberSec&AI Connected virtual conference, which will focus on the use of AI and machine learning in matters of security and privacy protection. As in previous years, the event will connect the international academic sphere with industry representatives and other experts. This year, the Private AI Collaborative Research Institute at the Technical University of Darmstadt also joined the organizers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
