LNU - Lviv Polytechnic National University
Lviv Polytechnic National University is the oldest technical university in Eastern Europe (it was founded in 1844) and one of the largest in Ukraine. The overall numbers of students amounts to 20,000. They are enrolled in 76 subject fields. At Lviv Polytechnic National University there are 12 institutes with 82 academic departments and over 1,500 teaching staff, over 150 of whom have hold the degree of Doctor of Science and over 1000 - the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Scientific research is pursued in 4 large research and design institutes and in about 100 laboratories, with a staff of about 1,000 researchers.
The University actively participates in external economic activities. Contracts have been signed with a number of foreign companies for the export of the results of scientific research. Contacts for scientific and technical cooperation have been signed with universities in USA, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, France, Austria, Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria and other countries.
The project will be carried out by the Department of Computer Engineering, which is one of the largest Department at the University (academic staff: 49, including: 4 D.Sc, professors, 18 Ph.D.; about 1,000 students).
Over the long time Department of Computer Engineering has been conducting research activity in design of systems for geographically distributed long-term explorations based on autonomous mobile research stations (intelligent agents-explorers). Results of this research activity were implemented in systems of autonomous distributed oceanic explorations based on autonomous research stations (drifters) and systems of mobile regional ecologic monitoring based on mobile ecologic monitoring stations. Department has also been successfully cooperating with Institute of Marine Hydrophysics (Ukrainian National Academy of Science) in the field of design of systems for autonomous distributed oceanic explorations. In framework of this cooperation scheme staff of Department has taken part in COSPAS/SARSAT (Search and Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking) project (funded by USA, Canada, France, Russia and Ukraine) in part of developing control systems for autonomous research stations. Research work at the Department of Computer Engineering on distributed autonomous exploration systems covered following directions: measurement (transducers, sensor systems, A/D conversion), preliminary processing (specialized computer devices, system on a chip, signal processing), communication (wireless communication, protective coding, information security). Presently Department research has gained new level of expertise covering problems of design of intelligent instrumentation means for distributed explorations which are capable of self-organizing to perform joint exploratory actions. Starting with the year 2000 Department successfully performed set of research projects in the field of autonomous distributed explorations for ecological monitoring based on robotic multiagent systems in the framework of National Program of fundamental research "New computer facilities and technologies for information society" supported by Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. Since 2000 research work on distributed autonomous exploration systems continues in the Laboratory of Multiagent Systems created at Department of Computer Engineering. Also staff of Department has performed a lot of projects in computer systems hardware and software creation for different branches.
