The traditional military and security technology fair IDET 2019 was held in Brno from 29 May to 31 May. CTU in Prague presented the latest research results. The Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Faculty of Biomedical Engineering presented their exhibits here. Visitors could see ballistic-resistant mobile barriers, drones, shooting ranges, walking robots, or the FlexiGuard wireless biotelemetry system. CTU Rector, Doc. Vojtěch Petráček tried all the exhibits and supported the exhibition.

The research team from the Experimental Center of the Faculty of Civil Engineering will present ballistic-resistant mobile barriers, which is a lightweight protective structure characterized by rapid deployment and penetration and explosion resistance, which do not require any special handling equipment and can be adapted to many different conditions. Barriers can be easily assembled into different shapes to fulfill their role, such as checkpoints, fortified places, road blocks and street barriers in the city.

In response to recent attacks on London airports, scientists at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague have accelerated the development of an autonomous flying robot with an advanced detection system and an ejection network designed to safely capture unauthorized drones. Eagle.one, whose on-board artificial intelligence was developed as part of a collaboration of scientists from the Multirobotic Systems group of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University and the company 601 s.r.o., was nominated for the IDET Golden IDET competition at IDET.  

In 1999, the Department of Measurement of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering established the Laboratory for Measuring the Quality of Speech, Audio and Video Transmission in Telecommunication Networks, which was presented at the fair through a virtual shooting range. This laboratory works primarily on developing methods for subjective testing. It provides independent services in accordance with relevant ITU-T, ITU-R, ETSI and ANSI recommendations. It performs unique multilingual, multi-national subjective tests and also performs tests under special conditions, such as mental or physical stress, or solving parallel tasks. Furthermore, the Center for Artificial Intelligence has developed the basic building blocks for autonomous navigation of robots, who go through difficult terrain. The robot overcome obstacles and pitfalls in front of the visitors.

The FlexiGuard Wireless Biotelemetric System was established at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering and is designed to monitor the physiological and environmental data of firefighters and other IRS members, in particular to improve intervention safety and to monitor and optimize the training process.

The Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic, the University of Defense and the Czech Technical University in Prague regularly appreciate personalities who have significantly contributed to the defense of our state in the field of engineering or construction issues, the Willenberg Foundation medal. This year, 20 years after joining NATO, the team of doc. Radoslav Sovják from the Faculty of Civil Engineering, represented by Jindřich Fornůsek, Jan Zatloukal, Michal Mára and prof. Petr Konvalinka received the award for the system of mobile protective barriers with increased resistance to extreme loads.

In parallel with the IDET 2019 trade fair, PYROS 2019 fair was held, where the mobile protective barrier was presented by Department of Railway Structures of Faculty of Civil Engineering in cooperation with STRIX Chomutov a.s. and PrefaKompozity a.s. The BALBAR mobile protective barrier was developed as part of a research project FV 10506 by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. Dynamic demonstrations of BALBAR barrier activation were also held at the fair.
