Smart Sensors for Smart Surfaces...
"Eologix" is a start-up project driven by three engineers at Science Park Graz, Austria. The founders aim at the industrialization of smart sensors for particular fields of application such as renewables, robotics and sports. Their first product is going to be a thin, autonomous and retrofittable sensor for icing detection on the surface of wind turbine rotor blades.
Michael Moser studied Electrical Engineering and Sound Engineering at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) and University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. Before launching Eologix at Science Park Graz, he was a research assistant at the Institute of Electrical Measurement and Measurement Signal Processing (TU Graz), where in 2013 he completed his PhD thesis focusing on energy harvesting and icing detection on electrical power transmission lines.
Thomas Schlegl received the MSc (Dipl.-Ing.) degree in Telematics from Graz University of Technology (TU Graz), Graz, Austria, in 2010 where he focused on electrical measurement. He was a research assistant at the Institute of Electrical Measurement and Measurement Signal Processing at TUG from 2010 to 2013 and a visiting researcher at Stanford University.
His PhD thesis focuses on smart sensors for safety applications and inverse problems. He is co-founder of Eologix at Science Park Graz.
Hubert Zangl received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in Telematics, the Dr.
techn. degree in Electrical Engineering, and the Venia Docendi for Sensors and Instrumentation from Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) in 2001, 2005, and 2009, respectively. Since 2010 he has been an Associate Professor with the Sensors and Instrumentation Group, Institute of Electrical Measurement and Measurement Signal Processing, TU Graz. In 2013 he became a full Professor for Sensors and Actuators at Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt and acts as a link to science and research.
