Formula Student 2008

Since last year FeM is recording and live streaming the annual Formula Student Event in Germany:

“Screeching tires, smouldering heads and impressive technical innovations – welcome to the Formula Student Germany 2008!
Join the Brunel Race at our stand. As a virtual race driver you’ll be able to win the Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring. The fastest driver gets the chance to win 2 tickets for the Formula 1 Event at Nürburgring 2009.”

If you don’t know what Formula Student is…you may want to read this:

“Students build a single seat formula racecar with which they can compete against teams from all over the world. The competition is not won solely by the team with the fastest car, but rather by the team with the best overall package of construction, performance, and financial and sales planning.

Formula Student challenges the team members to go the extra step in their education by incorporating into it intensive experience in building and manufacturing as well as considering the economic aspects of the automotive industry. Teams take on the assumption that they are a manufacturer developing a prototype to be evaluated for production. The target audience is the non-professional Weekend-Racer, for which the racecar must show very good driving characteristics such as acceleration, braking and handling. It should be offered at a very reasonable cost and be reliable and dependable. Additionally, the car’’s market value increases through other factors such as aesthetics, comfort and the use of readily available, standard purchase components.

The challenge the teams face is to compose a complete package consisting of a well constructed racecar and a sales plan that best matches these given criteria. The decision is made by a jury of experts from the motorsport, automotive and supplier industries. The jury will judge every team’s car and sales plan based on construction, cost planning and sales presentation. The rest of the judging will be done out on the track, where the students demonstrate in a number of performance tests how well their self-built racecars fare in their true environment.”

Starting this friday there will be a livestream available (Flash and Windows Media). Great stuff!

what would you do with a brand new CISCO 6509 ? Right. Have a tea break on it.

Oh well. Just after the 43 thousand Euro pile-of-metal arrived some of our office-technicians just thought: It’s tea time, we got a new toy, would that blend?

So they got the tea set and the digital camera out:

We don’t just think of our new hardware as the core equipment of a enormous network. We think of it… well… in a different way.

how (almost) everything works at ISWIsion

Namenlos wrote about how almost everything is held together at this years ISWI technically. Well he even draw something neat to look at and say “Look, that we did!”

“Die Audiostrecke wird mittels 6 Behringer Ultragain Pro-8 Digital ADA8000 aufgebaut. Diese Geräte nehmen 8 Kanäle Audio via XLR entgegen und setzen die auf eine ADAT-Verbindung über ein TOS-Link-Kabel um. Da die TOS-Links nur 10m weit gehen hängt an jedem Behringer ein ADAT-Extender, der das ganze gleich auf Glasfaser umsetzt. So kommt der Ton vom Studio zur Regie und zurück. Zusätzlich liegen noch 5 Strecken Video (so ein Fernsehsender ganz ohne Bild is ja auch nix.). Zum Abschluss verteilt in der Fischerhütte nochmal ein HP Procurve 2524 ein bischen Netz an die Surfterminals und die Leute vom ebenfalls dort beheimateten L.i.g.h.t. Projekt.”

And then deka came and created another drawing of the Live Streaming infrastructure:

ISWI 2007 is NOW!

Today ISWI starts for the ISWIsion and ISWIradio team!!

From June 1st to 10th, a group of approximately 50 students of the university daily presents a TV show about this get-together with all its events and participants. Most of them are members of the student broadcast station called iSTUFF, a department of the Forschungsgemeinschaft elektronische Medien e.V. (FeM e.V.).
The ISWIsion studio is located in the Fischerhütte at Langewiesener Straße 22. The former glass manufactory is being remodeled into our media centre for the traditional ISWI. All shows will be broadcast live and in English via internet stream, campuscable on channel 3 and – for the first time – via DVB-T on channel 23 in the whole city zone of Ilmenau.”

You can get the always up-to-date schedule here.

ISWI – ISWISION Radio and FeM DVB-T parts coming together…

There’s something great going to happen this summer. After the great experience we had with the DVB-T TV Station of the Maintech guys at the 23c3 Achim decided that it would be great to have such a DVB-T TV Station for FeM e.V.. He went through the hassle of getting a license and organized the needed hardware. Today one of the important parts arrived… but first a teaser:

Yes! FeM is going to broadcast 24 hours a day from June 2nd to 10th the ISWISION and ISWIradio via DVB-T on channel 23 (490 Mhz). Today the antenna arrived… this thing is humongeous:

Achim wants me to shout out to the partners of this DVB-T FeM e.V. project: Maintech GmbH and SR-Systems. Consider that done.

If you want more information stay tuned on technology-ninja. In the meantime you can read the press feedback:

Forschungsgemeinschaft elektronischer Medien e. V. veranstaltet erstmals Ereignisfernsehen

Anlässlich der traditionellen Internationalen Studentenwoche Ilmenau 2007 (ISWI 2007) wird die Forschungsgemeinschaft elektronische Medien e. V. vom 1. bis 10. Juni erstmals Ereignisfernsehen veranstalten. Im Stadtgebiet von Ilmenau wird das Programm als DVB-T-Signal (Terrestrial Digital Video Broadcasting – digitaler Fernsehempfang über Antenne) ausgestrahlt. Zu sehen sein werden Live-Sendungen aus der Fischerhütte in Ilmenau, Übertragungen von Veranstaltungen sowie eine Sendeschleife mit Veranstaltungshinweisen und Wiederholungen. Zusätzlich wird die DVB-T-Frequenz genutzt, um das Programm vom Ilmenauer Studentenfernsehfunk und von Radio hsf zu verbreiten.” (Press release, Thüringer Landesmedienanstalt)

Thanks to the heroic work of some there’s now a distributor in Ilmenau for Club-Mate. That makes is a whole lot easier to get the beloved stuff.

there’s a big ass tv when you need it

I was forced to do other things yesterday evening when my friends of FeM e.V. decided to take out their big-ass tv and play a some WiiSports on a house…

Of course that little game had a purpose: They wanted to test if the Sanyo projector is bright enough for the upcoming drive-in cinema season…

Rechnen an der Uni

In den heutigen, von Terrorgefahren verunsicherten Zeiten, passen sich die Menschen auch an ganz unerwarteten Stellen den Gegebenheiten an.


Aus dem aktuellen Statistik-I-Übungsskript, Aufgabe 20:


“Unter den 20 Passagieren eines Charterfluges befinden sich zwei Bewaffnete, die das Flugzeug entführen wollen. Zehn Passagiere werden zufällig ausgewählt und genau untersucht. Wie groß ist die Wahrscheinlichkeit dafür, dass die beiden Bewaffneten unentdeckt bleiben?”


Na dann, frohes Rechnen…

setting up the 6509-ng


So our test-drive 6509 is setup-and-going in the local junk server room. As you can see the room is obviously used for two different purposes. On the one hand it’s a windowless central network service point…and on the other it’s… oh dear…take a look for yourself:

Ilmenau drive-in cinema


Once a year the HFC (HochschulFilmClub) organises a drive-in cinema. And yesterday was the first of two days of drive-in cinema in Ilmenau. Unfortunately a storm came up just before the show started. I was ready in place for the movie and then the HFC decided to cancel the event for this time…


They told us to come back the next day…well I don’t have time 🙁 So no drive-in cinema for this year for me.





Oh…we (Microsoft) even sponsored the event…

the knowledge of our time: Berkeley courses available for free download (audio)

Berkeley University of California just made a great number of their audio courses available for free download on iTunes. Just tune in and get a taste of cal.

I actually got a taste of the incomparability of two universities… The courses are great!

ACCESS & DOWNLOAD COURSES on your computer or MP3 player
LISTEN TO EVENTS about the Arts, Education, Politics, Science and Technology
BE CONNECTED with what’s happening at UC Berkeley

But Berkeley is not the only university which has some sort of online-courses. FeM e.V. offers you a growing number of complete courses of the TU-Ilmenau with video+audio.

Galgenhumor

Ach ja, immer wieder ein schönes Gefühl, in einer Klausur zu sitzen und zu merken, dass man die Tage vorher das falsche Zeug gelernt hat.


Das Einzige, was man neben neuen Erfahrungen mitnimmt, sind die lange nicht mehr gesehenen Bekannten und die recht zahlreichen “Dosen” (Ja, sowas gibts auch in Ilmenau…).


Wobei es sich nicht um irgendeine Klausur handelte, sondern um Statistik I. Wer jemals fühlen möchte, was es heißt, zu einer verhassten Minderheit zu gehören, der sei MTler und setze sich dort mal hinein.

FeM general meeting ahead!!! (german)


Im Rahmen der Mitgliederversammlung 2006 legt der aktuelle Vorstand sein Amt nieder!

Ihre Arbeit fortsetzen und somit erneut Kandidieren wollen

– Marcel Pennewiß
– Thomas Helbig

Susanne Wolf steht nicht für eine erneute Kandidatur zur Verfügung.

Weiterhin möchte Martin Heller für den Vorstand kandidieren.
Dieser stellt sich im folgenden vor:






Mein Name ist Martin Heller. Ich bin 22 Jahre jung und studiere Maschinenbau im 5. Semester.

Wie jeder andere Campusstudent trat ich 2003 der FeM bei. Anfang 2004 begann ich, mich für die dahintersteckende Technik zu interessieren. Bereits Mitte 2004 übernahm ich von Philipp Neuwöhner den Posten des Chefeinkäufers, den ich bis zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt inne halte. Das Interesse am Verein hat sich während meiner Arbeit stark erweitert – heute bin ich in mehreren Teams aktiv. So zum Beispiel im Technikteam, dem FiWak oder dem Streamingteam, bei dem ich die technische und logistische Organisation der Aufzeichnung des 22. ChaosCommunicationCongresses (22C3) in Berlin übernahm.

Aufgrund der bei meiner bisherigen Arbeit im Verein gesammelten Erfahrung habe ich mich entschlossen, diese im Vorstand einzubringen.






Ziele des neuen Vorstandes sind unter anderem:



  • Fortsetzung der Arbeit des bisherigen Vorstandes

  • weitere Zusammenarbeit mit der Uni, um FeM uniweit zu etablieren und so auch Anrechnung von Studienarbeiten etc. Aktiven zu erleichtern

  • Zusammenarbeit mit anderen FeM-ähnlichen Vereinen, um gemeinsame Ziele besser vertreten zu können und KnowHow zu bündeln

  • unterstützen von in Entwicklung befindlichen Vereinen mit unserem Fachwissen

  • Verbesserung der Kommunikation der Mitglieder und Projekte untereinander

  • endgültige Einbindung des iSTUFF in die FeM

  • Intensivierung der Zusammenarbeit mit anderen uninahen Vereinen

  • Erhöhung der Öffentlichkeitswirkung um mehr Aktive zu gewinnen

vandalism – damn this isn’t france, is it?


Bad things are taking place in Ilmenau these days. First there was the WiFi link of FeM which was stolen whilst we’re at the christmas party….



there was a SOEKRIS PC.


The thieves left the enclosure open so there’s probably water in the cableing. 🙁


And as if this wasn’t enough on this saturday some bad guys destroyed two of the server room air conditions of FeM:



server room: I



server room: C



temperature peak after the air condition was gone


The I server room air condition was fixed with parts of the C server room air condition – but the C server room remains with temperatures around 30 degrees after we shut down the not necessarily needed servers. Damn my mail server is down since saturday since it’s a 4-way xeon machine consuming way to much power and producing way to much hot air for an unconditioned server room.


What’s going on people? Hopefully the thieves and vandals will get caught.

Bergfest Movie News

It’s rite at the TU-Ilmenau to make a movie when you have “Bergfest” (half time to make it simple)… so it’s time for a new one:



NICHTS WAS BLEIBT IST WIRKLICHKEIT erzählt die Geschichte von Joe. Eigentlich heißt Joe Johannes, aber so hat ihn schon seit Jahren keiner mehr genannt. Er lebt in einer kleinen Stadt inmitten des Thüringer Waldes und geht dort, mehr schlecht als Recht dem Studium der Physik nach. Eigentlich ist er kein besonderer Student. Vielleicht etwas klüger als die anderen, dafür aber auch schwermütiger, denn es scheint, als würde er eine schwere Last mit sich herumtragen. Das war allerdings nicht immer so. Früher war er aufgeschlossener und fröhlicher. Früher war er glücklich. Vor dem tragischen Schicksalsschlag, der sein Leben so veränderte.
Sein Freund Hagen kennt diesen alten Joe noch. Und vielleicht aus Hoffung, dass diese Lebensfreude wieder zurückkommt, ist er so ziemlich der einzige, der sich noch um seinen Freund kümmert. Joe selbst lebt schon längst nicht mehr. Jedenfalls ist es ihm anscheinend nicht mehr bewusst.
Und wäre da nicht Hagen, er würde wahrscheinlich die meiste Zeit in seiner Wohnung verbringen, tief versunken hinter Büchern sitzen und sich seinen Tagträumen hingeben.
Es ist also kaum verwunderlich, dass Joes seelischer Zustand auch an seinem Körper nicht spurlos vorbeigeht und er eines Tages in der Uni erschöpft zusammenbricht. Im Krankenhaus lernt er Marie kennen und Joe beginnt, sich in dieses lebensfrohe Mädchen zu verlieben, das so komplett anders ist als er. Und auch wenn es zunächst nicht den Anschein macht, so übernimmt das Schicksal langsam wieder das Ruder in Joes Leben…”
