Walter Oesch,
Controlling Software for EMF Laboratory Studies.
2006; 222 pages. € 64,00. ISBN 3-86628-097-1


The first part of this thesis describes the design and implementation of controlling software for electromagnetic field (EMF) laboratory studies which investigate possible health risks of EMF exposure. Controlling software monitors the exposure system and guarantees stable exposure conditions. Stable conditions in turn improve the authenticity and reproducibility of EMF laboratory studies. The second part critically evaluates the benefits of established and novel software engineering methodologies and assesses their suitability for complex and real-world software systems. The evaluation focuses mainly on agile software engineering methodologies.

Walter Oesch received his MSc Appl. Geophys. from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich in 2000. He was awarded an ETH medal for an outstanding diploma thesis for his work on “Modellierung seismoelektrischer Effekte in Erdölreservoirs”. After his graduation, Walter Oesch joined the Foundation for Research on Information Technologies in Society (IT’IS) as a research assistant where he designed and implemented controlling software for various EMF laboratory studies. IT’IS is a research foundation closely connected to the Integrated System Laboratory (IIS) of ETH Zurich.


Keywords: Elektrosmog, Handystrahlung, Expositionseinrichtung, Steuerungssoftware, Entwicklungsmethoden, Agile Methoden.
