Dr. Florian Klingler

Professor (Jun.-Prof.), TU Ilmenau, Germany


  • DyMoNet - Dynamic Mobile Networks: Small cell base stations on cars, resource management in such dynamic environments. Funding: DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). Project time: 09/2021-08/2024. Institutions: Paderborn University, TU Berlin, University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland (HES-SO). Team @ UPB: Dr. Florian Klingler (PI).

  • DiDoZ Etteln (Digital Twin Etteln): As a cooperation with our project partners we develop a digital twin of the small town Etteln near Paderborn, Germany. The main focus of this project is to incorporate intelligent sensing functions to existing infrastructure and the environment together with smart mobility mechanisms to support community vehicles for rent. Challenging aspects of the project are how to adapt wireless communication technologies (e.g., 5G, LoRaWAN, etc.) to fulfill requirements for a variety of different application domains in rural areas. Based on an Open Data Platform the sensed information is aggregated and integrated to support a Village App where residents can inform themselves about hyper-local weather conditions, emergencies, availability of community vehicles and much more. Funding: BMEL (Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft). Project time: 11/2022-10/2025. Institutions: Paderborn University (UPB), Etteln aktiv e.V., FIWARE Foundation e.V., Gemeinde Borchen, Hypertegrity AG, safety innovation center gGmbH, solutiT GmbH; Team @ UPB: Dr. Florian Klingler (PI), Dr. Christoph Weskamp (PI), Marvin Illian (PI)
