TU Graz/ Research/ Fields of Expertise/

Overview: Information, Communication & Computing

Researchers in the Field of Expertise Information, Communication & Computing at TU Graz are focussing on challenges prompted by the information age, for example data security and the efficient use of the ever increasing volume of data. They are studying on how to transfer, process, structure and save information. They are investigating and developing communication tools such as mobile phones as well as hardware and software for computers, networks and satellite systems. The outstanding research was already rewarded by the European Research Council (ERC): Security researcher Stefan Mangard received an ERC Consolidator Grant and computer scientist Thomas Pock an ERC Starting Grant for their research projects.

Examples of research topics

  • It is predicted that over 50 billion intelligent objects will communicate with each other in the Internet of Things by 2020, allowing for numerous everyday applications. For example, cars will communicate with each other to prevent accidents. These applications need to be completely reliable, otherwise there is a risk of human casualties. Researchers at TU Graz are investigating an integrated approach for the set-up of the Internet of Things in order to be able to guarantee that it functions 100% reliably. This project, entitled Dependable Internet of Things has been chosen as the first so-called Lead project of TU Graz by an international jury.
  • Researchers participating in the project High-level Prior Models for Computer Vision (HOMOVIS) are working to understand and explain human vision with the help of mathematical models. The long-term aim is to teach computers to see.
  • TU Graz and partner institutions are building a small satellite – a space laboratory – to test new space technology developed by the European Space Agency in flight. The aim is to test powerful processors, radio receivers, and space software in real space conditions, in a low risk manner.
  • In the national special research area Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods, techniques to enable precise and quick simulation results are being developed, for applications such as the calculation of financial risks or the optimal dosage for radiotherapy.
