Impression from Istanbul

June 28, 2015

It has taken me quite a while to work through tons of pictures I made during my combined extended weekend and conference trip to Istanbul in the beginning of May. Now I am done and happy to show you a selection of impression of this multifarious metropolis. There is so much to see and it is definitely worth another visit.

Flight from Strausberg to Cottbus with a Cessna

June 13, 2015

Last week I had the chance again to fly with my buddy Olli in a rented Cessna. This time we made a round trip from Strausberg to Cottbus, passing by the Tropical Island (former Cargo Lifter production site), brown coal surface mining and close by Vattenfall power plant, the stadium of Energie Cottbus and the city of Beskow as well as the old town of Cottbus itself .

Due to the limited space and the less stable flight in such an aircraft it is actually not that easy to make good pictures. Nevertheless, a collection with my favourites from this time is presented below.

Thanks again for the great trip to my favourite pilot!

Solar eclipse 2015

April 8, 2015

I know I am a bit late, but I was quite busy and forgot about the pictures on my camera.

Anyway, here are my results that I shot freehand with my Olympus Pen through some protection glasses from my colleague Axel. Thanks again!

Unfortunately one shot is slightly blurred, but even so the series is interesting from my point of view.

Stuttgart during Informatik, KI and MATES 2014

January 12, 2015

In the end of September 2014 I participated at the MATES conference that was co-located with the Informatik and KI conference in Stuttgart. I was presenting my Ph.D. idea and concept at the conference in the doctoral consortium. Besides the conference work, we had a nice conference dinner in the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The museum is very impressive and worth a visit for everyone passing by Stuttgart. May you will get an impression from the pictures I shot there.

Moreover, I went around Stuttgart city one night after the conference taking pictures from the night scenery of the royal area.

Enjoy the pictures…

Nightly Berlin after first snow

January 5, 2015

I would like to show some long-exposure pictures I did the last week from my office after it snowed the first time this winter in Berlin.

The pictures are done with my small Olympus camera (E-PL3 ) with kit lens. For some of the pictures I have used the additional wide-angle converter WCON-P01.

Debugging ROS nodes started from launch file with Eclipse

December 14, 2014

Requirements

  • Imported ROS project into Eclipse workspace (see http://wiki.ros.org/IDEs for details)
  • Installed gdbserver (apt-get install gdbserver)

Follow the steps below.

1) Adjust the launch file:

Add this to the node tag if you want a new terminal window for the process

1
launch-prefix="xterm -e gdbserver localhost:10000"

or add the following if you want to stay in the current started terminal.

1
launch-prefix="gdbserver localhost:10000"

2) Eclipse Debug Configuration

Add a new Eclipse debug run configuration for C/C++ Remote Application. Adjust the path to your C/C++ application binary, leave everything else default

Debug Configurations _023

3) Execution

First execute ROS launch with your launch file. You can either do this from the terminal or by a external tools hook from eclipse (http://answers.ros.org/question/10043/how-do-i-start-a-launch-file-from-eclipse-ide/)

Because I am using a multi-package ROS-Eclipse project and my launch files are always in the root of a package I am using ${container_name}  instead of ${project_name} for the external tools arguments in Eclipse.

Now you will see that a small gdb terminal has opened if you are using the first version of launch file configuration from above.

gdbserver_024

Now, just start your Eclipse debug configuration and you are ready to debug.

Pictures from my business trip to Florence in October

November 22, 2014

In the beginning of October I have participated the ICT-Proposers’ Day in Florence, a H2020 networking event of the European commission.

Even though I spend only one night in Florence, I was able to get around the old town in the center of the city and made some valuable shots.

This was my first time in the Toscana area and it is definitely worth going there again at some time for an extended stay.
