Prof. Puente deceased
We mourn the loss of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Fernando Puente León, who passed away unexpectedly for us on July 1, 2020.
Prof. Puente León has been head of the IIIT since 2008 and during this time has had a significant impact on the IIIT. Under his leadership, numerous research projects and doctoral theses in a wide range of topics in signal and image processing, metrology and human-machine interaction were carried out. In teaching at the KIT Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology he was responsible for several courses, among others "Signals and Systems" and "Measurement Technology". Beyond the KIT, he enjoyed an excellent reputation as a committed scientist, for example as editor of the journal "tm - Technisches Messen" and as author of several technical and textbooks.
We are dismayed by his death and will miss him. We will always remember him with his expertise and commitment, but also as a personal companion. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family.
The staff of the IIIT
The optimal acquisition and processing of information is an essential component of many industrial and scientific tasks, as only in this way can a situation-specific execution of complex automation tasks be guaranteed. Since nowadays many systems consist of distributed components, communication plays an equally important role.
At the Institute of Industrial Information Technology (IIIT), the complete information chain is considered - from measurement technology and signal processing to control and decision making. On the basis of current tasks, e.g. in the fields of automatic visual inspection and image processing, innovative methods are researched and solutions are implemented in practice.
Our courses provide students with cross-technological knowledge, which is in demand from traditional industrial companies as well as from information service providers. Our application-oriented projects offer students the opportunity to apply their acquired knowledge in current research topics in the context of diverse, interesting diploma theses and student research projects and to get in contact with our partners from industry and research.
We congratulate Christoph Bergs on the successful completion of his doctoral thesis with the topic "Multi-Fidelity Modeling of Dynamic Systems for Operation-Parallel Simulation". Congratulations!
We are pleased to announce that our paper "Signal-Adapted Analytic Wavelet Packets in Arbitrary Dimensions" has been accepted for the Eusipco 2020! The corresponding Matlab Framework is already publicly available. See you in January 2021 in Amsterdam!
At the Measuring Technology Symposium 2018 Dr.-Ing. Sebastian Bauer was honoured with the renowned AHMT Measuring Technology Prize for his dissertation which he wrote at IIIT under the guidance of Professor Puente. We congratulate Dr Bauer on this award! (Image: Copyright AHMT)
