Radek’s internship in Vaasa

Date: 1. 3. - 31. 5. 2022

The second student who participated in the internship was Radek Byrtus. He spent three months in Finland from 1. 3. - 31. 5. 2022. His supervisor at the University of Vaasa was Dr. J. Birgitta Martinkauppi.

“I have been on three-months internship at University of Vaasa, where I became a part of several IWU research activities of the GeoUS project. The internship took place under the guidance of my supervisor Birgitta Martinkauppi.

My first task was to learn about research activities in the field of geothermal energy and IoT-based monitoring systems. For this part I had a list of scientific publications to study, from which I subsequently prepared a report as a basis for a future publication. Other work included learning about wireless communication technologies such as LoRaWAN, Bluetooth LE, WiFi and others.

An important part of this was my personal participation in an international event called EnergyWeek in Vaasa, where presentations on innovative renewable energy technologies took place throughout the week. This event also included the presentation of the GeoUS project.

The knowledge I acquired during the study part at the beginning of the internship was further applied when working with various IoT devices. My activities were specifically focused on LoRaWAN and Bluetooth communication technology and I had at my disposal a development kit with ESP32, ESP8266 and Siemens IoT2040.

Furthermore, as part of the internship, I prepared a publication output in the form of a conference contribution for the conference called ICRERA2022. The conference ended on September 19 - 21, 2022, and the prepared conference contribution was presented as part of Session-6 on Monday. For more information, please see www.icrera.org or www.icrera.org/index.php?id=prog for online program.

The last part of the internship was devoted to the preparation of reports from the progress of the work and to the preparation of a publication contribution for an excellent journal, which is planned to be sent at the end of 2022.”
