August, 31th- 10 am :: Geodetic Colloquia :: Navigation with Digital Maps and Electronic Design
You have already heard this often. How about the following statement?
Majority of the today's population use their smartphones as their extended memory. Ask a teenager for the phone number of his siblings and his hands would immediately go to his pocket to check his phone to recall the number.
Does that ring a bell?
Let us take it a little further.
What if you do not know how to read maps (thanks to the access of today's technology)? Or worse. How about if you are lost somewhere (no phone battery) and unable to find a way and rescue yourself?
Taking these facts into consideration, one would definitely say that navigation plays a very significant role today. This can be mainly due to decreased ability and lack of motivation in people to learn things due to easy access to devices such as smartphones, etc. If you are of the same opinion, then I would like to present you a very special opportunity to dive deep into the secrets of navigation and electronic design.
Now, if you think that this is just a trick to lure you into a seminar which provides boring information that is easily available on internet, let me tell you who is presenting in the seminar. The presentation will be held by Professor Rafael Toledo-Moreo, a professor at the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, Spain. Having an European P.hD. degree in computer science and a M.Sc. in Electronics and automation engineering under his belt, he has been awarded as one of the European "100 Young Creative Talents" for his contribution in his field of expertise and his creative potential in science, research and innovation.
Not only this.
He has also been an award winner in 6th International Award for young researchers “Jordi Viñas i Folch” to the best research work for “Interactive Multiple Model based Low Cost IMU/GPS Navigation and Maneuver Detection in Road Vehicles”. He also has the award winning title of "“Importantes 2008", an award which is awarded only once in 10 years. This post will really become very large if I keep on speaking about his achievements.

Now, if you are convinced that this seminar will be really valuable, let me tell you what awaits you. In this seminar, you will get to know the insights about the recent cutting edge research of the professor in the field of navigation and electronic design. This 1 hour event will cover following topics:
Navigation: : Intelligent Transportation Systems, Mobility, Navigation Systems, Global Navigation Satellite Systems, Inertial Navigation, Digital Maps, Geographical Information Systems, Data Fusion, Kalman Filtering, Particle Filtering, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, Location Based Systems, etc.
Electronic design: Reconfigurable Computing, Design with FPGA, etc
In this seminar, professor will talk about his vision to improve the navigation systems in order to make this world a better place. If you also believe in the same mentality and want to be a part of those rare group of people who see the world in a different perspective and want to make a difference, join us on August 31, 2018 at 10 am at Leibniz University, Hannover. This event is organized by Research Training Group "i.c. sens", which works on integration of dynamic sensor networks. More information about this research group can be found in the following link:
