Visual Navigation Machine Learning Competition

ENAC-IT4Research

No GPS, no problem ! Today drones and other aerial autonomous systems for navigation and control depend heavily on the robustness of GNSS reception for their position estimation. The objective of this competition is to ask users around the world to contribute to TOPO’s research by building and training a model that can be used (…)

Hybrid Timber-stone Structures fabrication

ENAC Interdisciplinary Cluster Grants, ENAC-IT4Research

Traditional hybrid stone-timber structures are part of an ancient craftsmanship heritage which is labor-intensive and requires qualified workers. Nevertheless, these dry and glue-free construction systems using locally available materials have all the qualities defined today as sustainable: reuse of mineral waste, low embodied energy, low embodied water content, demountable, cement-free; and moreover earthquake-resistant. Therefore, the (…)

Affective mapping in Geneva

ENAC Interdisciplinary Cluster Grants, ENAC-IT4Research

This project, a collaboration between ALICE (Atelier de la Conception de l’Espace) and LASIG (Laboratory of Geographic Information Systems), will address climate change from the perspective of landscape infrastructure as a nature-based solution capable of linking urban connectivity, active mobility and psychophysical health and wellbeing. Urban landscape has a key infrastructural role, supporting and making possible different practices and behaviors, and can thus be instrumentalized to (…)

Visualizing Urban Water Cycle

ENAC Interdisciplinary Cluster Grants, ENAC-IT4Research, Uncategorized

Knowledge of how to articulate the “urban transition” is today urgently needed. Urbanization is on a steadily growing trend that impacts the water cycle as a whole. However, while the effects of urbanised/urbanising areas on water quantity (how much water) have been well studied for flood prevention, other effects –as those related to water quality (which water)– are mostly unknown. (…)

UNHCR Sustainability Web Tools

ENAC-IT4Research

In the context of ongoing work with UNHCR Geneva Technical Hub, EssentialTech, FAR and BPE aim to develop web application building on various data sources (mostly Excel sheets and web source) and user inputs, to improve sustainability practices, through GHG emmissions estimates, shelter sustainability scores and improved energy planning in refugee camps. The overaching project (…)
