H-C3: Human Centric Communication

H-C3: Human Centric Communication Center

The Human Centric Communication Center, H-C3 for short, opened its doors in February 2009. Goal of this TU Berlin initiative, in which more than 50 TU Berlin departments and 11 other research institutes are participating, is to facilitate the general public’s intuitive access to and handling of growing amounts of information by developing suitable hardware and software technologies.

Four PhD candidates from Fraunhofer IZM and the Forschungsschwerpunkt are working on five different research areas dealing with technological, economic and sociological aspects of human communication.

Specifically, the researchers are developing design and integration technologies for the assembly of the required hardware, as well as energy management technologies for autarkic sensor networks.
