Summer Course August 2009
Why waste your summer vacation doing nothing at the beach, when you can have fun building an autonomous field robotics vehicle together with fellow students at the University of Southern Denmark? Each student group will build their own vehicle capable of killing weed in a maize field, and the groups will have an opportunity to participate in the FieldRobotEvent 2010.

The FieldRobotEvent 2011 will take place in Denmark. For more information about the FieldRobotEvent 2011 please visit www.fieldrobotevent.dk.
SimoBIT (Secure mobile IT applications for SMEs and administration) (2007 - 2011), commissioned by the German Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi)
The SimoBIT initiative provides funding to cooperative research projects aimed at developing, testing and facilitating the widespread use of innovative and secure mobile multimedia applications for improving productivity and quality in business and administration. The 12 joint projects include 59 companies and academic institutions and primarily work towards to mobilising processes and “value-chains” in these sectors:
- Public administration
- Mechanical engineering
- Crafts and small companies
Associated academic research commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) aims to ensure the coherence of the various projects within the initiative and to ensure that the findings are published quickly. Another task involves linking the individual projects with the associated area. The associated research is done by WIK-Consult.
Duration of initiative: Project as a whole: 2007 - 2011
Individual projects approx: 36 months
Total budget: Approx. 58,3 million €
Funding budget: Approx. 27,5 million €
The SimoBIT project is based on the high-tech strategy and the action programme "Information Society Germany 2010" by the Federal Government of Germany.
