FIIT LAB, ANALAB - RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY

ANALAB

We opened a project in 2007 within the ANAlab research and development laboratory to collaborate with university students. Students have the opportunity to work on interesting projects together with ANASOFT's experts within a project setting.

The laboratory’s goal is to use the latest scientific knowledge and information and communication technologies to develop solutions that gradually become the basis for expanding the company’s portfolio of products and services.

FIIT LAB

In collaboration with the Faculty of Informatics and Information Technology at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, we opened FIIT LAB – a research laboratory for the use of artificial intelligence in Smart Industry in 2018. Students worked with experts from ANASOFT in research groups. The laboratory is dedicated to researching the latest artificial intelligence methods for industrial applications.

Innovative research laboratory projects

Application of artificial intelligence algorithms on automated production data

Application of artificial intelligence algorithms on automated production dataThe goal of this project is to identify examples of behaviour and connections, to expose anomalies and to create the ability to predict them by applying artificial intelligence algorithms. A system simulator was created using historical audit/log data along with tools to support operational supervision of the system.

 

Interactive devices interpreting a cybernetic-physical system

Interactive devices interpreting a cybernetic-physical systemSolutions are designed and built to present a self-learning system in a manufacturing setting (for predictive service interventions or the deployment of algorithms within stock-in and stock-out processes in large warehouses). The result will be an interactive device with self-learning algorithms.

 

Comparison of the behavioural characteristics of a handwritten signature using machine learning tools

Comparison of the behavioural characteristics of a handwritten signature using machine learning toolsWe are developing a component for signature solutions able to verify a received signature against a specimen signature. The objective of the project is to research, select and verify suitable technologies for comparing a 1:1 biometric signature data in real time and the ability to use machine learning tools.

 

Use of BlockChain in electronic signature

ANAlab projekt -Využitie technológie BlockChain v elektronickom podpiseThe objective of this project is to verify the applicability and viability of using BlockChain and DPL (Distributed Public Ledger) to perform signature tasks. Available platforms will be utilised to verify design samples and create components for integration into existing solutions.

 

Visualisation of manufacturing enterprises data using augmented reality

Visualisation of manufacturing enterprises data using augmented realityThis goal of this program is to create a program capable of propagating aggregated information about a monitored production station into a current image of its actual surroundings. The objective is to ease the production station monitoring process.

 

Visualisation tool for forensic analysis of digital handwritten signatures

Visualisation tool for forensic analysis of digital handwritten signaturesThe challenge in this project was to create visual forms of signatures that best aid forensic experts in investigating the match between a handwritten digital signature with other specimens. The objective is independence from having to rely on the third-party tools we have previously used.

 

KINECT One for Windows - ergonomics assistant

KINECT One for Windows - ergonomics assistant

Students had the task of verifying the ability to use “KINECT One for Windows” in evaluating various ergonomic factors for personnel in industrial manufacturing industries. They created a prototype application to support MTM (Methods Time Measurement) analysis of ergonomics. 

 

Privacy in mobile communications

Privacy in mobile communicationsWe investigated ways to protect privacy in mobile communications in various formats (voice, messaging and documents). We focused on the topic of protecting privacy and the contents on a device if lost. We identified simple and suitable applications (services) for creating secure communications.

 

Open I/O board

Open I/O boardThe task was to create or find on the market a hardware I/O board based on Open Software and Open Hardware principles. Such a conceived I/O board may be used as an alternative to commercial I/O boards or a simple home automation (HA) application to control household appliances.

 

Freight logistics using mobile technologies

ANAlab projekt - Logistika s mobilnými zariadeniamiThe theme of this project was to monitor and evaluate the performance of a fleet of trucks using BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) mobile technology. The solution that was created expands the usefulness of the VIATUS product for managing freight transport on one’s own mobile devices.

 

USB CLOUD DATA KEY

USB CLOUD DATA KEYThe outcome of this project is a secure remote access solution to connect to the Cloud using a USB dongle with DSP via the Internet. The project investigated the viability of IT securing technologies (PKI, PKCS, AES and others) and an overview and selection of client and server platforms was created.  

 

Business analysis for the inexperienced but determined

Business analysis for the inexperienced but determined

Business analysis is work with people and about people and where great listening and comprehension skills are critical. It involves working with models that permit the full use of personal creativity and technical and analytical thinking skills. We searched out innovative ways and forms to provide information support for selected processes.

  

Testing of mobile applications

Testing of mobile applicationsWithin the completion of this project, students defined areas and ways for testing mobile applications. They learned about testing methodology, various types and approaches to testing applications and the specifics of testing mobile applications. They also gave creating test scenarios and the assessment of information a practical try.

 

Automatic creation of cloud-based test environments

Automatic creation of cloud-based test environmentsThe MS Azure cloud environment provides a broad range of options for automatic generation of IaaS solutions, which simplifies the process of deploying solutions. It does not resolve the question of if a deployed solution is functional. The goal of the project was to prepare a framework to permit the functionality of a deployed solution to be verified.
