Scientific Projects

1 Jul 2013– 30 Jun 2016

DUSIREF (Dynamic Urban Scene Interpretation and REconstruction through remotely sensed data Fusion) is a joint project of the Distributed Events Analysis Research Laboratory (DEVA) of MTA SZTAKI and Infoterra-Astrium GeoInformation Services Hungary, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) under the PECS-HU framework. The main objective of the project is high level urban scene recognition and change interpretation based on heterogeneous Remote Sensing (RS) data sources (mainly optical and TerraSAR satellite images and LIDAR data).

Within this project a new microbiological measuring device has been developed that combines the fluorescent detection of objects with the digital holographic microscopes provided extended depth of fields and medium spatial resolutions. This way we have built a device that is able to detect the position of the fluorescent objects, which can be auto-fluorescent ones (containing e.g. chlorophyll, phycocyanin) or marked by fluorescent dies, and based the simultaneously recorded hologram the medium resolution image of these objects are also reconstructed.

Main objective is to involve and engage in long-term significantly more citizens and new communities in the volunteer and private (campus-wide or enterprise) Distributed Computing Infrastructures by supporting the rapid creation, efficient operation, and dynamic expansion of this type of DCIs for e-Science. Coordinate and synchronise the dissemination and support activities of major European stakeholders of volunteer and Desktop Grids with focus on the International Desktop Grid Federation.

The NextGeneration project aims at the re-thinking of the terms scientific publication and scientific journal and researching the new generation of publications (multi-layer, enhanced publications, nanopublications, data papers, etc.). We would also like to prepare for a paradigm shift in the handling of primary/raw data, annotations, reviews and open access regarding research papers. A concrete pilot is planned with a Hungarian journal on economics.

The project will focus on the current problems including:

Society has reached a point of no return, one that leaves us completely reliant on omnipresent ICT-mediated communication. Mobile and sensor-rich portable devices connect millions of humans with petabytes of data and numerous on-line services. However, tearing down the physical-digital barrier in a scalable fashion requires both radically novel algorithmic knowledge and in-depth understanding of humans and societies.

„Blindness separates us from things, but deafness separates us from people.” (Helen Keller)

Show your voice! The InterpreterGlove system operates as a sign language interpreter, enabling the speech- and hearing-impaired to communicate with the nondisabled using sign language, their native language. As the signs are automatically transformed to text and audible speech, this solution will significantly improve the communication for the hearing-disabled.

1 Sep 2012– 31 Aug 2014

The ER-flow project's aim is to build a European Research Community to promote workflow sharing and to investigate interoperability of the scientific data in workflow sharing.

The project will disseminate the achievements of the FP7 SHIWA project, particularly the coarse-grained workflow interoperability based on the SHIWA Simulation Platform.

1 Sep 2012– 31 Dec 2013

BonFIRE will design, build and operate a multi-site Cloud prototype FIRE facility to support research across applications, services and systems at all stages of the R&D lifecycle, targeting the services research community on Future Internet.

Az E+grid adaptív intelligens energia-pozitív közvilágítási rendszer kifejlesztését a napenergia közvilágítási rendszerekben történő felhasználása, az intelligens energiahálózatok (smart grid) terjedése, az energiatakarékosságra való törekvés, valamint az intelligens városokban (smart cities) a közvilágítástól elvárt hozzáadott szolgáltatások motiválták.

The main goal of ProActive is to research a holistic citizen-friendly multi sensor fusion and intelligent reasoning framework enabling the prediction, detection, understanding and efficient response to terrorist interests, goals and curses of actions in an urban environment.To this end, ProActive will rely on the fusion of both static knowledge(i.e. intelligence information) and dynamic information (i.e. data observed from sensors deployed in the urban environment).
