iPraktikum Team Receives SmartHome Deutschland Award 2018

Following the outcome of 2017, the iHaus iPraktikum team of the winter term 2017/18 again received the first place in the category “best student achievement” (“Beste studentische Leistung”) at the SmartHome Deutschland Award 2018. Over the course of one semester, the eight students have developed the iHaus DNA system.

The current generation of smart homes comes with a great variety of sensors and actuators. Many of these devices interact with each other, creating a unique footprint of the occupants' routines and behavioral patterns. At the same time, there is a high effort for occupants in setting up rules for the automation of their regular activities. The iHaus DNA system tackles this problem by smartly detecting daily habits and suggesting their automatic execution to the occupants. Furthermore, the iHaus DNA system is able to identify anomalies and thereby contributes to its user's comfort, security, safety, and health.

As part of an all-day event in the Rotes Rathaus in Berlin on May 14, 2018, the students presented the project and thereafter received the award for the first place. The SmartHome Deutschland initiative represents a trade-spanning, interdisciplinary communication platform to enable information exchange between regional smart home organizations and representatives of research, development, industry, commerce, and craft.

iPraktikum Team got First Place at SmartHome Deutschland Award 2017

An iPraktikum team of the winter term 2016/17 got first place in the category “best student achievement” (“Beste studentische Leistung”) at the SmartHome Deutschland Award 2017. The nine students worked together with iHaus AG on the topic “Efficient Energy Management in Private Households”.

Within one semester, the students developed an intelligent system that automates the management of energy—an increasingly complex process. The occupants of a smart home can use an intuitively designed app to choose between four different modes. For instance, the Eco Mode ensures the environmental-friendly usage of energy by preferring solar energy and reducing non-required energy consumption to a minimum. Moreover, the occupants can apply a Vacation Mode, a High Availability Mode, and a Money Saving Mode. In addition, the system keeps on informing the occupants about the house status and provides possibilities to make manual adjustments.

As part of an all-day event on May 30, 2017, in the Rotes Rathaus in Berlin, the students presented the project and thereafter received the award for the first place. The SmartHome Deutschland initiative is supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and represents a trade-spanning, interdisciplinary communication platform to enable information exchange between regional smart home organizations and representatives of research, development, industry, commerce, and craft.

Zeiss Meditec Customer Sales Representative Assistant App rolled out in Germany and Mexico

In close cooperation with Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, a team of 7 students developed a mobile app that makes the life of ZEISS customer sales representatives easier. As part of the iPraktikum WS16/17, the team used agile development techniques to build the solution sales representatives really needed.

The app is currently being rolled out in Mexico and Germany. During the development process, the team identified two main use cases: ordering and stock taking. Until now, sales representatives were not able to cover these two use cases in a completely digital way. The team interviewed potential users in Mexico and Germany to identify the problems in the existing processes for these two use cases to prototype and develop a new improved solution. The close cooperation between industry partners and the Chair for Applied Software Engineering gives students the chance to work on real life problems with real customers. Even more, the students’ innovative, young and technology-driven approach is a huge opportunity for companies like ZEISS to prototype, develop and rollout new solutions in a fast way.

Carl Zeiss Meditec is happy to be part of the line-up for the iPraktikum summer term 2017 and looking forward to another success story driven by the engagement of young software engineers taking part in the Praktikum.

Reto - A ubiquitous P2P framework

Reto P2P FrameworkWe published the peer-to-peer real-time framework Reto on Github, that Julian Asamer developed during his Master's Thesis under the supervision of Stephan Krusche. Reto is available in Swift on iOS and OS X (sReto) and in Java 8 (jReto) for Windows, OS X and Unix. Both implementations are compatible with each other regarding the network protocol and the exposed API. Reto allows data exchange between multiple peers in WiFi networks, over Bluetooth or over the Internet using a dedicated, but simple WebSocket server. Reto supports discovery of and communication with peers that cannot be reached directly by using other peers to forward data. The framework offers an easy-to-use, high-level, object-oriented API and can be integrated without much effort into existing applications. Try out one of the example applications on Github and participate in the further development by creating issues and pull requests! Active contributors can also get write access to the repositories.
