Visit KTH's lab tours
We invite you to visit KTH’s exciting research environments! During KTH’s lab tours, you will get the chance to visit and learn about the research conducted in the labs, see unique facilities and try on-going projects. Welcome!
Time: Wed 2019-10-09 16.30 - 18.00
Location: KTH Campus
KTH invites interested parties to visit our exciting and world-leading research environments during “lab tours”. A lab tour is one and a half hours long and consists of visits to three different labs. There are four tours to choose from of which two are given in English and two in Swedish. Each lab tour only has 15 places, so make sure to register as soon as possible!
Note that you may only register to one lab tour each day.
Note: If you have sign up but are not able to attend, you must unregister by e-mail. No-shows will be charged with a fee.
Information regarding starting point and your group number will be sent to you in a separate e-mail after registration.
Program and lab
Tour 1 (English)
PDC Center for High Performance Computing
Visit the most powerful supercomputer in the Nordic countries! During the tour, you will get insights in how it is built and used for research. PDC Center for High Performance Computing is one of six super computer
Drone robotics lab
The Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning (RPL) performs research in robotics, computer vision and machine learning. This specific lab does research connected to indoor flying robots. We study questions such as, How can the robot localise indoors where GPS is not available? How to move safely where distance to obstacles are not tens of meters but fractions of meters? How to explore an environment when you have limited battery life?
Nuclear reactor hall (R1)
Sweden’s first nuclear reactor was located 25 meters below the surface of KTH’s campus. It is also the first reactor in Sweden to be phased out. Today the Nuclear reactor hall acts as a creative meeting point for different organisations and is used to for example recording music videos, having exhibitions and various events.
Tour 2 (Swedish)
I högspänningslabbet bedriver man forskning med fokus på högspänning, isolationsmaterial och komponenter i elkraftssystem. I labbet finns utrustning för blixturladdningar, trådlös kraftöverföring och elektrostatiska experiment. Högspänningslabbet är en del av Sustainable Power Lab.
Sustainable Power Lab
Inom labbet bedrivs forskning och utbildning inom ämnet elkraftteknik. Här pågår prototyputveckling och test av kraftelektronik, elmaskiner och drivsystem.
Smart Mobility Lab & ITRL
Besöket inkluderar både Smart Mobility Lab (SML) och Integrated Transport Research Lab (ITRL). På SML arbetar man med utveckling och tester av lösningar för intelligenta transportsystem och självkörande bilar med hjälp av simulering och modeller. ITRL arbetar KTH tillsammans med Scania med att utveckla och demonstrera nya hållbara transportsystem.
Tour 3 (English)
Fusion Experiment EXTRAP T2R
The EXTRAP T2R is a major experimental facility for fusion research. Here researchers study alternative magnetic confinement configurations which have the potential to produce fusion plasmas. Some experimental areas include plasma wall interaction and development of spectroscopic diagnostics for evaluation of plasma parameters
In this lab, researchers develop measurements of electromagnetic antennas from 2-40GHz. It is an anechoic chamber, but there is no electromagnetic echo in the room at those frequencies.
Manipulation and mobile robotics lab
The Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning (RPL) performs research in robotics, computer vision and machine learning. This specific lab hosts a number of dual arm robotics platforms, some mobile and some stationary. The research focus is on interaction with the environment and interaction with humans. We develop systems that draw insipration from humans and how humans interact with objects to build artificial systems that can support and collaborate with humans in their everyday tasks.
