Automatic feature selection in intrabuilding localising

Published: 11/04/2022

Separate selection of points inside corridors and the Small Auditorium in the WUT Main Building. By utilising this approach, you can determine an approximate distance of the localised object, with an error lower than five meters.

Scientists at WUT are working on improving the service of intrabuilding localising. The solution is increasingly utilised in the care for people suffering from dementia or navigation of automatic robots, among other things.

Describing temporal evolution of soft matter systems with methods of topological structural heterogeneity

Published: 26/01/2022

The structure of topological characteristics of soft matter systems.

In 2017 during laboratory work, researchers at the Warsaw University of Technology for the first time observed a photonic structure in nematic liquid crystals dispersed with nanoparticles of gold. The observation led to the publication of research findings in 2019 in ACS Nano - the upper decile journal. The scientists did not stop their work and continued their research as part of the implementation of the research grant awarded in the FOTECH-1 competition. An article just published in Communications Materials (Nature group) describes this work.
