Dr. Vasyl Koval Visited University of Siegen
Dr. Vasyl Koval visited University of Siegen within a joint research project Development of stereovision methods and devices for autonomous navigation of mobile robots. This visit concurred with the 20 anniversary of the Sensor Systems Center, ZESS, www.zess.uni-siegen.de. During the visit participated in the "Winter School on Mobile Exploration and the IPP", http://www.zess.uni-siegen.de/ws_09/winter_school_09/ which was held in Siegen from October 28 to November 4, 2009 and where were presented the research results and achievements in the area of mobile application.

Dr. Vasyl Koval presented the Group of Intelligent Robotic Systems of the Reseach Institute for Intelligent Computer Systems and it's achievements in the area of stereocamera calibration, 3D reconstructing for autonomous robot navigation. German partners presented their Department of Electrotechnics and Computer Sciences, particularly the research results in area of mobile robot navigation, sensor readings processing, 2D/3D image processing and PMD-camera.

During the visit there was discussed a plan for future common investigations with the German partner. Finally, there was prepared a Memorandum of Understanding between Ternopil National Economic University and University of Siegen.

Research Links with Lithuania are Strengthening
Prof. Anatoly Sachenko, the Head of Department of Information-Computer Systems and Control and the ICS Scientific Advisor visited Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuania in October 26-31, 2009 within the framework of Ukrainian - Lithuanian Research Project “ Development of 3D localization methods for the Autonomous Robot Navigation”.
