Scientific Projects

1 Feb 2016– 31 Jan 2019

The COURAGE project is exploring the methods for cultural opposition in the socialist era (cc. 1950-1990). We are building a database of historic collections, persons, groups, events and sample collection items using a fully linked data solution with data stored in an RDF triple store. The registry will be used to create virtual and real exhibitions and learning material, and will also serve as a basis for further narratives and digital humanities (DH) research.

STREAMLINE will address the competitive advantage needs of European online media businesses (EOMB) by delivering fast reactive analytics suitable in solving a wide array of problems, including addressing customer retention, personalized recommendation, and more broadly targeted services. STREAMLINE will develop cross-­sectorial analytics drawing on multi­‐source data originating from online media consumption, online games, telecommunications services, and multilingual web content. STREAMLINE partners face big and fast data challenges.

Modern multifunctional clinical instruments enhance the accuracy of the medical diagnostics. The aim of this development project is to create a multi or hyper-spectral illuminator that can be used in medical imaging instruments such as endoscopes. The new illuminator will be able to generate high power light beam composed of arbitrary narrow bandwidth spectral components  and modify the composition quickly in time to support multi-spectral imaging with a video camera.

Since autumn 2015, our laboratory cooperates with Hoya Szemüveglencse Gyártó Magyarország Ltd. within the topics of simulation analysis and „Industry 4.0”. The primary goal of the project is to model different segments of the company’s plant in Mátészalka, according to different capacity planning and process improvement criteria. Within the developments and workshops of the cooperation, the engineers of Hoya picked up the basics of simulation modelling, enabling them to use this technology in the everyday practice.

Traffic management plays an important role in the smart city concept, enabling the authorities to observe and control the traffic flow. The key elements of such system are the sensing nodes, which provide information regarding the speed of each individual vehicle. Current speed measurement devices use separate sensors for speed estimation (RADAR/LIDAR), and vehicle identification (camera). These are expensive devices, and thus not suitable for example, to monitor the whole road network of a city, which would require a large number of sensing nodes.

MTA SZTAKI initiated and leads an R&D consortium aiming to develop automated control functionality for commercial vehicles. The R&D objectives include the reduction of fuel consumption and of the emission of air pollutants, as well as the improvement of road safety and driver comfort. The project is organised in the following thematic groups:

  1. System architecture
  2. Automated vehicle control
  3. Energy-optimal vehicle control
  4. Power-supply
  5. Drive
