TUHH`s Karl H. Ditze Award 2014

Rüdiger Schramm, Christian Renner, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Bauhofer (vlnr) Christian Renner is this year’s awardee of the TUHH’s Karl H. Ditze award in the category of doctoral thesis. The prize is worth 2.000 Euros and was presented on July 2nd 2014 by Rüdiger Schramm, new chairman of the Karl H. Ditze foundation, in conjunction with the 15th awarding of the Karl H. Ditze prize at the TUHH.
Sensor nodes powered by energy harvesters and supercapacitors open the door to unlimited and uninterrupted operation. Christian Renner’s thesis closes the persistent gap of system integration with respect to holistic online energy assessment, develops a new concept for harvest forecasting while assessing the behavior and quality of known approaches, and proposes a novel load adaption scheme to achieve sustained and uniform sensor node operation with low complexity and computational overhead.
The laudatory speech was given by Professor Dr. Volker Turau from the Institute of Telematics, who is also reviewer of Mr. Renner’s thesis.
