Students presented their research at the Prague Embedded Systems Workshop 2022

From June 30 to July 2 2022, FIT CTU organized the international research meeting, Prague Embedded Systems Workshop 2022 (PESW), organized by the Department of Digital Design and the DDD research group, where doctoral students presented their results and progress in all aspects of design, testing and programming of embedded systems. The workshop, which was attended by a total of 60 people, focused mainly on dependable and low-power designs. The event included lectures by three important experts from universities and from practice, and a competition of student theses.

This contest of bachelor and master theses was organized as a poster session. The objective of the Student Poster Session is to provide a forum for the presentation of student works defended this or in the last year. The presented works must be bachelor or master theses from the field of embedded systems. Eight students entered this competition. The first place was taken by Ing. Josef Koumar with the thesis Detection and recognition of periodic communication in network traffic. The second place was won by Bc. Adam Švehla with the thesis Robot Pepper application for mobile phone operator. The third place was taken by Bc. Martina Bechyňová with the thesis Software for Nixie clock.

“The most difficult thing was to clearly explain my thesis’s whole essence in a few minutes.It was a successful and great experience,” commented the winner of this year’s event, Ing. Josef Koumar.

The main goal of PESW was to provide students with feedback on their final works and thus help young scientists. An important point of the program was the lectures from a number of experts, including the professor and world expert in Data Analysis and Machine Learning, José Camacho Páez from the University of Granada (Spain). He outlined the issue of statistical analysis using multiple variables, which can improve results and reveal measurement errors.

Experts from the faculty were also among the lecturers. For example, Ing. Dominik Soukup from the Department of Digital Design at PESW presented a method for evaluating datasets based on permutation tests for the first time. The workshop also had a special section focused on network security, which was covered by the Network Traffic Monitoring Lab.

“I believe that the idea of ​​the workshop was fulfilled again this year – the authors of the students’ posters received reviews for their articles, and the authors’ presentations were accompanied by constructive discussions. I am convinced that these impulses will help the authors in subsequent research,” said the organizer of the Network Security Section, Ing. Tomáš Čejka, Ph.D., from the Department of Digital Design.
