FIT researchers work on preventing laser dazzling of pilots by developing a security system that finds the attacker

The pilot is preparing for landing on the runway when a blinding green beam illuminates the entire cockpit. It was just hit from the ground by an attacker using lasers. Each year, the police register several dangerous incidents that could potentially result in a tragedy. Therefore, the Václav Havel Airport in cooperation with the Czech Police reached out to researchers from the FIT BUT, CTU and the University of Defence. The goal is to design a system of aerial protection against low-power lasers.

FIT intern at CERN is developing particle accelerator monitoring software

It started with an interest in nuclear physics, chemistry and energy, and continued with an internship at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. Since March, FIT student Silvie Němcová has been working as an intern in a team developing software that is part of CERN's critical infrastructure. "For me, it is a great opportunity to combine IT with my other interests, while participating in a project which includes interesting experiments," she says.

Research means constant learning. It is a great job for the curious, says graduate working in Singapore

Jakub Pružinec, an FIT graduate, has been working in the distant Singapore for over two years. At Nanyang Technological University (NTU), he is a research assistant in the HP-NTU Corporate Lab, a new laboratory created in collaboration between the university and HP. "You get a taste of both, the academia and the industry," Jakub Pružinec says.

Matej Viskupič's award-winning algorithm will be used at the National Museum

The algorithm for tracking people, developed by Matej Viskupič, a student of the Faculty of Information Technology, helps determine the optimal placement of exhibits in museums and galleries. His work was awarded by the Sewio company, the main partner of the Excel@FIT 2022 student competition, which also deals with this problem in its business. In addition, the system will be installed this summer at the National Museum in Prague. For more information, see the article
