Visit KTH's research environments
During KTH's lab tours 9 October you are offered the possibility to experience our labs and research environments in areas such as robotics, self-driving vehicles, robotics and electricity. Each tour is one and a half hours long and contains visits to three labs where researchers will present and demonstrate their research. Tours are given in both English and Swedish.
The lab tours are arranged 9 October between 16:30 to 18:00.
A total number of three tours will be offered and each tour will visit three labs. Two tours are given in English and one is given in Swedish. There are only 15 spots each tour, so make sure to secure your place by signing up today!
Sign up to the event and get more information about the lab tours below.
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.
Programme and labs
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.
