Lukas Neumann's diploma thesis Text location and recognition in real-world images (in Czech) supervised by Jiri Matas placed second in the Porsche Engineering Award 2011.

Vladimir Smutny, Pavel Krsek and Pavel Pisa (from the Department of Control Engineering) developed, in collaboration with Neovision s.r.o., a mobile robot for air duct cleaning by dry ice blasting. The project received third place in the Cooperation of the year 2010 competition organized by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) and the Association for Foreign Investment (AFI) The robot was also awarded a special prize by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic.

The robot, which has already been put into operation, allows effective and ecological cleaning of industrial vents and air condition conduits including the motion of robot in bends and moving in horizontal, inclined, and vertical ducts. The robot was presented in the Milenium program of the Czech TV on October 29, 2010. (2010.09.30)

Lukas Neumann's diploma thesis A method fo text localization and recognition in real-world images supervised by J. Matas won the Master Thesis of Year 2010 in Informatics award in the database engines and applications category. The organizers issed a press release about the competition (in Czech). An ACCV'10 paper describing the contribution will be posted shortly. Lukas started his PhD in CMP in September. (2010.09.18)
Lukas Zich's's diploma thesis Lukas 's diploma thesis Control of Computer by Head Movements supervised by M. Urban and J. Matas won the Master these of year 2009 in Informatics award in the medical information technology category.
