Five medals for scientists from the Technical University of Lodz at the Seoul Fair

At the Seoul International Invention Fair 2018, five inventions developed at the Department of Microelectronics and Information Technology of the Technical University of Lodz were awarded medals. Three inventions received gold and two received silver medals.

The fair was held from December 6-9, 2018. They are organized by the Korean Association for the Promotion of Invention, the only institution in Korea whoseora has been promoting inventive activity since 1973. They are roalso supported by the World Intellectual Property Organization and the International Federation of Inventors Associationsow. The exhibition was held under the patronage of the Korean Intellectual Property Office.

Three inventions from the Lodz University of TechnologyoThe two winners of the gold medals and the two silver medals were – informed spokeswoman Ewa Chojnacka.

The gold medal was awarded to a system for optimizing the cost ofoin the construction and operation of underground high-voltage cable lines. Its authors are: Dr. Ing. Andrew Cichy, Ph. Bartosz Sakowicz, prof. George Anders, MD. Marek Kaminski.

As part of the project, the researchers created a computer program to design underground high-voltage cable lines. The developed application makes it possible to find optimal dimensionsoD. in the geometries of the cable and the lagging, so that the total cost of construction and operation (for an assumed number of years) is as low as possible. Additional conditions related to the feasibility of the trench, the temperature limitations of the cables or the required current carrying capacity are being met. The optimizer uses advanced numerical and optimization methods to.

The second medal went to the ARUZ project – Real System Analyzeroin Complex, whichorgo authors are: dr hab. Eng. Jaroslaw Jung, Ph. Piotr Polanowski, MD. Rafal Kielbik, Ph. Krzysztof Halagan, Ph. Witold Zatorski, prof. Jacek Ulański, prof. Andrzej Napieralski, prof. Tadeusz Pakuła, Marek Cieślak.

Real System Analyzeroin Complex is a project carried out as part of the expansion of the Łoof the Regional Science and Technology Park (BioNanoPark), with a middleoat the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (under the Innovative Economy Operational Programme), the City Hall and the Governor’s Officeodzkim (under the ROP). ARUZ is a process simulatoroin chemistry using FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) technology.

Designed at PŁ (in the Department of Molecular Physics and the Department of Microelectronics and Information Technology) is the largest device of its kind in the world. Nearly 3,000 PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) with a total of nearly 27,000 chips were used to build itoin FPGAs, whichore were connected by about 75,000 network cables with a total length of about 100 km. The entire structure of this powerful yet energy-efficient computing machine is shaped like a cylinder with a diameter of 14m and a height of 5m. Thanks to its unprecedented size and unique properties, it can perform simulations in 2 weeks, whichore on a good PC-class computer would last about 40 years and require 75 percent of the. higher electricity consumption.

The gold medal was won by roalso the Stereoscopic Image Registration Assistant. Its authors are M.Sc. Piotr Perek, MD. Eng. Dariusz Makowski, Ph. Aleksander Mielczarek, prof. Andrzej Napieralski.

An assistant is an innovative tool to support a film crew on set during stereoscopic image recording. It provides high-quality 3D images and prevents image distortion and errors.

Silver medals went to a method and device for supported calibration of stereoscopic cameras and a scalable industrial-grade system for high-speed camera video capture.
