SCOPE: This course will provide an introduction into the fields of plasmonic and plasmonic metamaterials. Starting with elementary descriptions of these two revolutionary concepts of nanophotonics, a survey of the current state-of-the-art will be provided. This will include descriptions of nanophotonic waveguides and cavities, surface-enhanced sensing(More)
Savanna ecosystems comprise 22% of the global terrestrial surface and 25% of Australia (almost 1.9 million km2) and provide significant ecosystem services through carbon and water cycles and the maintenance of biodiversity. The current structure, composition and distribution of Australian savannas have coevolved with fire, yet remain driven by the dynamic(More)
In cooperative perception systems, different vehicles share object data obtained by their local environment perception sensors, like radar or lidar, via wireless communication. Inaccurate self-localizations of the vehicles complicate association of locally perceived objects and objects detected and transmitted by other vehicles. In this paper, a method for(More)
— This paper adresses the issue of modelling and identification of individual driver steering behaviour from a new point of view, incorporating the idea of human motion being built up by an individual and limited repertoire of learned patterns. We introduce a switched affine model structure to explain a measurable motion alphabet in the driving context and(More)
Reconfigurable processing units promise to boost the performance of computational intensive applications. Thereby the kernel of an application is executed in the reconfigurable hardware instead of being executed in software. This report presents a reconfigurable extension for the CarCore embedded processor. The extension combines reconfigurability with(More)
In this paper, we present a novel approach for dialog modeling, which extends the idea underlying the partially observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs), i. e. it allows for calculating the dialog policy in real-time and thereby increases the system flexibility. The use of statistical dialog models is particularly advantageous to react adequately to(More)
