Students' projects

At Friedrich Schiller University, the cellphone app for monitoring atmospherical conditions by the observations of stars was developed. The development started with a prototyp for feasibility tests in 2018/9 by a student of physics. It was developed further by two software development projects by (in total) five students of computer science.
