Open Master Thesis: Specification of a Trans-Disciplinary Knowledge-Based Planning and Simulation Framework Regarding the Interaction of Mega-Urbanization and Water Management
Humanity has crossed the line from being a rural to urban species since 2007. For the first time in history, more people live in cities and urban areas than in the countryside. Starting in the developed nations, where the urbanisation process has been significantly decelerated in the meantime, urbanisation has especially increased in Asia and South America as well as in Africa to a substantial extent in the second half of the last century.

Our sound localization framework should be adapted to speech signals to enhance human-machine interaction. In order to do this, the system should be able to distinguish between speech signals and ambient noise. Currently, the whole sound mixture that is captured by the microphones is taken into account to establish the sound localization map.

To simulate the filtering processes of the cochlea a digital signal should be segregated into an arbitrary number of narrowband signals. In subsequent stages, the software should be able to process the narrowband signals in real time. This requires a high degree of parallelism that is unsufficiently supported by currently available CPUs.

In Domestic Service Robotics (DSR) human-robot interaction has to be as natural as possible since the robot should be easily operable even by laymen. Spoken language is a feasible means to do so but commands issued to a robot are often ill-formed or incomplete. The goal is to develop a system that is capable of successfully interpreting such commands.

Robots that operate in human environments need to be able to detect and preferably also track humans around them by using all of their sensory capabilities.
The objective of this thesis is to develop and implement a system that allows a robot to detect and track person using several different modalities such as a laser range finder and a sound source localization.

Based on Visual Hand Recognition the task is to develop and implement a system to recognize known (and possibly also define new) simple gestures meant to be used as commands issued to a robot.

The logic-based programming language Readylog has already been successfully applied to control robots in multiple domains such as in robotic soccer and domestic service robotics. In realistic application scenarios robots often fail, due to various reasons some of which are in the state of the robot('s) software itself.
The objective of this thesis is to develop and implement a system that allows a robot to identify issues leading to failures that occur frequently and prevent the same by appropriate counter measures.
