Highlights from the Mobile Computing Lab

Olga Saukh‘s Mobile Computing Lab is one example of courses at ITI where students can really get creative: while working on their own programming project, students learn the basics required for developing innovative smartphone applications. This includes knowledge about signals and data that smartphones can gather, as well as the mathematical tools necessary to process the data, such as signal processing and machine learning.

A highlight of this year’s student demos is COFFECTLY by Theo Gasteiger: coffee enthusiasts will understand the importance of shot timing in the extraction of a perfect Espresso. COFFECTLY is a novel iOS application that enables automatic shot timing as well as coffee brand classification, based on acceleration measurements. You can find the videos of Theo’s and other student demos here.

Mobile Computing Lab

Showcasing a selection of successfully completed projects in the course "Mobile Computing Lab" in SS'22 at TU Graz. The students used a wide range of smartphone’s sensor signals, trained and optimized machine learning models, designed a compelling UI, and finally develop useful and powerful Android apps. More often than not the app idea belongs to a student! Congratulation on the fantastic outcome!
