KTH researchers in final running to join NASA/ESA asteroid test

In 2022, NASA plans to ram a 300kg spacecraft into an asteroid, while an ESA-built space probe orbits the egg-shaped body and records the aftermath. A team that includes KTH researchers is among the final five that are competing for their CubeSat designs to be included in ESA's Asteroid Impact Mission (AIM). One of the researchers on the team is Lorenz Roth.

Sensors relay the health status of machines

Motion sensors can be used to examine the health status of certain machines, such as lifts, and if they need to be repaired - before they break down. The Signal Processing Department has reached this conclusion in a collaborative research programme. An app that is used in lifts at the university has been developed to illustrate the technology involved.
