A decade of world-leading research

This year, ACCESS Linnaeus Research center celebrates 10 years. To celebrate this milestone, a major industrial and academic event will be organized on the 2nd of May.

“ACCESS has provided important contributions to areas such as cyber-physical system, data analytics and tele-communication networks, says James Gross, vice director for ACCESS. 

Self-driving trucks in the near future

A self-driving truck under development by Scania and KTH researchers has tested successfully at speeds of up to 90 kilometres-per-hour. 

"We have come a long way with the work and have already proven with a real truck that the task is possible," says Bo Wahlberg, professor of control engineering.

64 million SEK in research grants

SSF is giving two projects at the School of Electrical Engineering grants of a total of 64 million SEK. The projects are led by Dimos Dimarogonas and Karl-Henrik Johansson. In total, KTH received almost a quarter of a billion SEK from the SSF for research within smart systems and materials science.

Positioning system can monitor walking difficulty for elderly

A positioning system adapted for use in fire rescue operations will soon be tested on senior citizens in Sweden as a way to spot signs of early stage Parkinson's disease and other mobility problems.

RESEARCH

Breakthrough for lab-on-a-chip material

Researchers at MST have developed a new polymer suited for photostructuring — a technique for creating micro-scale shapes. The discovery opens new possibilities for medical diagnostics, biophotonics and 3D printing.
