For SOFTECH team it is already a tradition to have student and mentors cooperating on research papers to be presented during the IEEE’s International Symposium on Intelligent Systems and Informatics. In 2020, due to the pandemic restrictions and border closure, travelling was not possible therefore SISY conference chose a virtual online format. We congratulate our mentees and mentors for being accepted with six papers this year! Well done!

What is the main goal of SISY 2020 Symposium?

SISY 2020 symposium aimed to offer researchers an opportunity to extend their current worldwide scientific relationships in the field of Intelligent Systems. The organizers promoted this year action so that researchers and lecturers who work at various institutions may interact and find common research areas during the conference, in order to establish further cooperation for bilateral or international projects.

The Topics of SISY 2020 Conference

This year the topic mix set by the SISY Conference organizers was thrilling as usual. We were invited to virtually follow six main tracks:

  • Computational intelligence
  • Intelligent robotics
  • Intelligent mechatronics
  • Intelligent manufacturing systems
  • Informatics
  • Applied mathematics

In respect of the latest scientifical advances and research in the above mentioned fields, there were a wealth of particular study domains: machine learning, genetic algorithms, Neural Nets, fuzzy systems, fuzzy and neuro-fuzzy control, knowledge based systems, expert systems, robotic systems, HRI (Human-Robotic Interaction), service and surgery Robots, machine vision, sensing and sensor data fusion, motion control, intelligent actuators, rapid prototyping, concurrent engineering, VR and MR.

Our team at SISY 2020

The mixed team of mentors and students involved in the Codespring Mentoring Program have successfully delivered and published in the IEEE Xplore platform, six research papers.

Offline Microcontroller Network Based Monitoring System with a Configurable Sensor Set by Roland Hobaj and Csaba Sulyok – A paper that approaches how a configurable monitoring system can automate startups and agricultural organizations. The premise of the studied system is the absence of internet connection, therefore microcontroller with configurable sensor sets are foreseen in the project. The study case presented in the paper emerges from the day to day situations found in the activity of bee farmers.

Image-Based Volume Estimation Using Stereo Vision by Nándor Bándi, Rudolf-Bálint Tunyogi, Zoltán Szabó, Eszter Farkas and Csaba Sulyok. – As announced in the title of the paper, the study focuses on estimating different volumes for irregular objects with the help of a camera. The estimation process is based on dense point clouds generation fitted with a Poisson surface and convex hull. The software system proposed includes an Android client for picture taking UI and 3D rendering of the scanned object and a server for image processing.

Student Conference Electronic Submission System – Tamás Rozsnyai, Andrea Tamás, Ervin Erőss, Barna Séra and Csaba Sulyok. – This paper is inspired from the real use cases observed during several scientific conferences in Transylvania, Romania. SConES proposes a single online platform for paper and work submission to student and academic conferences. Of special interest is the architecture of the platform, the communication between components and the main functionalities with development technologies and tools.

Atlas: Software System for Monitoring and Reserving Free Parking Spaces by Ágnes-Kriszta Szabó, Zalán Ráduly, Örs-Krisztián Patakfalvi, Csaba Sulyok and Károly Simon – The papers proposes a project trying to solve the stressful process of looking for parking spots. The software system processes acquired data from surveillance cameras and displays unassigned parking spaces while tracking the number of drivers navigating to a given spot.

SoulMind: Interactive Platform for Domain-Specific Data Analysis and Visualization by Alpár Cseke, István Király, Károly Simon, Szilárd-Gábor Mátis and Kincső Tüzes-Bölöni. – This is a project including a management platform for personal and historical data related to priests and theire parishes. It also features a role-based multi-tier user management system for data protection reasons.

Truxi: A Software System for Enhancing The Communication Between Truck Drivers and Retailers – Bertalan Vad, Anna Kiss, Roland Nagy, Ákos Orbán, Károly Simon – The paper presents the practical cases and potential solution for freelance drivers to meet potential demand via a mobile and web application. It also features route optimization reducing time of delivery.


Given the pandemic context and the major shift of learning models in 2020, we present a special round of applause for all the colleagues and students who managed to cooperate on delivering these interesting projects. Over more, we hope that their investigations, researches and potential solutions may find applicability in real life projects!

Well done everyone!
