An IoT network connects various physical "things" such as GPS trackers in vehicles or sensors in machines to the internet via a wireless connection. Whether AI-supported bird call recognition, vehicles communicating with each other, a sensor node network for an environmental station or apps for plant or insect identification: with the help of IoT technologies, information about the immediate environment can be analyzed in the Internet of Things, linked together and made available in a network.

However, this is associated with a wide range of challenges: For example, modern communication networks must be particularly resilient and fail-safe, i.e. able to deal with unknown and unpredictable events both within the network and in external sources in order to reliably support a wide variety of applications.

When it comes to designing efficient next-generation networked systems, scientists must therefore consider not only ever-increasing data rates but also extremely low latency times, i.e. the lowest possible delays in communication, through to intelligent networks and ultimately completely fail-safe systems. In his lecture, Junior Professor Florian Klingler, Head of the "Development of Systems for the Internet of Things (IoT Engineering)" group, will use specific examples to show exactly how they are researching such highly mobile network paradigms and testing their practical benefits.


The online lecture will take place on May 21 at 6 p.m. as preparation for the Science Camp on the topic of "Modern technology vs. species protection?" at TU Ilmenau.

All prospective students and other interested parties are cordially invited to attend and can register at zukunft@tu-ilmenau.de with details of their name, school and grade level.
