In October, ERCIM News focuses on Digital Humanities, with László Kovács (head of the Department of Distributed Systems, MTA SZTAKI) being one of the editors of the special theme issue.
The Lidar data processing solution developed in the Machine Perception Research Laboratory (MPLab) was invited by Velodyne Europe executive director Erich Smidt for a live demonstration in the exhibition area of the market leading sensor manufacturing company at the Frankfurt Motor Show (
Krisztina Konrád, Ph.D. candidate - supervised by Dr. Zsolt János Viharos, member of the Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence of the Institute for Computer Science and Control of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences - won the “National Higher Education Excellence Fellowship – for Ph.D. students and candidates”.
Tamás Péni and Tamás Luspay, two members of Systems and Control Lab, and András Kovács, member of Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence receive the János Bolyai Research Fellowship between 2017-2020.
Experience shows that a major part of the cost of system identification is associated with performing experiments on the plant in question. For dynamical systems, it has been shown that a careful design of the experiment can lead to significant cost reduction. These observations have prompted renewed interest in adaptive input design. A major advance in this area, providing a theoretical justification for a standard adaptive method, was published recently in the IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control by László Gerencsér and Håkan Hjalmarsson.
The paper entitled ' Parameter varying flutter suppression control for the BAH jet transport wing" written by B. Patartics, T. Luspay, T. Péni, B. Takarics , B. Vanek and T. Kier was shortlisted for the Best Interactive Paper Prize at the IFAC World Congress in Toulouse (France). The presenters in the Interactive Section were encouraged to emphasize their scientific contributions in vivo, i.e., by means of videos, simulations, demonstrations in addition to usual slide-show.
A recent article from the Machine Perception Research Laboratory landed on the cover page of the July 2017 issue of IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters.
Based on its previous Hungarian Patent submission, MTA SZTAKI has submitted an international (PCT) patent for its fluorescent-holographic microscope. The invention combines fluorescent microscopy with digital holographic microscopy technology.
A successful R&D project that was launched in 2015 is to be completed in June 2017 by the project consortium. The project was funded by the Hungarian National Research, Development and Innovation Fund and it was coordinated by the Institute for Computer Science and Control (MTA SZTAKI). The technical objectives of the project were to define and implement a set of automated control functions for commercial vehicles.

ApertusVR is a MIT licensed, open source, platform independent programmers library, which delivers a new perspective of integration of virtual reality and augmented reality technologies on fields such as research, industry, or application design. Due to the scalability, and distributed approach, the applications developed with ApertusVR are easy to couple with already existent applications, withou...
Customer-oriented manufacturing companies need production planning tools that help them to fulfill orders in a fast and flexible way. At the same time, these tools should keep production costs as low as possible, and eliminate all the unnecessary fluctuations of the production load. These challenges can only be met if companies exploit state-of-the-art planning technologies to their full potential...
Intensification of competition and developments such as market-driven and customer-focused supply chains forced companies to become parts of complex production and logistics networks, instead of producing in isolation. In the future only companies will be competitive which are capable of ensuring the effectiveness of their entire supply chain. To achieve a competitive edge and shorter time to mark...
Consulting tasks, micro-developments and workshops about reactive programming topics, especially about RxJava and related libraries/technologies.
The eLearning Department of MTA SZTAKI has dealt with mobile-based software development since 2005. As a result of this activity, a new application family was created under the name of GUIDE@HAND that was able to meet a wide variety of aspects of life in today's age and trends. The first such mobile application served for tourist purposes and was granted with several prizes in Hungary and abroad....


Our fundamental task is to perform basic and application-oriented research in an interdisciplinary setting in the fields of computer science and information technology. Contract-based target research, development, training and expert support for domestic and foreign industrial, governmental and other partners are also important activities at the Institute.

The aim of this project is to develop and evaluate a computer-based methods for automated and improved detection and classification of different colorectal lesions, especially polyps.

Progressive and well scheduled building of bridges between the physical and digital worlds, a special readiness for innovative adaptation, answers to challenges in a prompter way than any time before, including bold steps to be made concerning innovation.

Research, development and demonstration of sensing and environment detection methods for autonomous vehicle.
