Oskar Björkqvist, Oskar Dahlberg and Gustaf Silver decided to take the advanced course in theoretical electrical engineering in spring 2015. That decision has lead to a final position in an international student competition. To do this, they designed a device that obtains energy from WiFi and 3G signals.
During the last ten years, the ACCESS Linnaeus center has conducted successful research within the broad area of networked systems. A total of 60 faculty members and postdocs and 100 PhD students from different disciplines collaborate in ACCESS, and together they have created Europe’s leading center in the broad area of networked systems. To celebrate its achievements, a major industrial and academic event will be organized on the 2nd of May.
The close ties between KTH and telecom giant Ericsson allow for a two-way learning process. And as electrical engineering and telecom move towards digital engineering, the EE school is ramping up its software competence.
As one of four adjunct professors at the School of Electrical Engineering, Lennart Harnefors makes sure that the research conducted and scientific knowledge gained effectively meet the needs of people in society.
The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, (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.
KTH has recruited six PhD students to the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP). This is part of the launch of the WASP Graduate School which goal is to educate over 100 PhD students over the next ten years.
Paper-based diagnostics enable rapid medical test results at minimal cost — and now they're about to get even better. A new synthetic paper developed by KTH researchers could enable simultaneous screenings for multiple conditions, with more reliable results.
Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology 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.
Autonomous vehicles have become a popular research field in the last decade. Mostly, the research is conducted with private cars or other small vehicles in mind. But where does that leave the industry with their larger vehicles such as trucks? Pedro Lima, a PhD-student at the Department of Automatic Control, has designed and implemented a Model Predictive Control (MPC) for trucks that will allow them to drive safely and accurately on their own.
The next generation of electronics, as well as ultra-sensitive medical diagnostics, could depend on near atomic scale cracks — or nanogaps — in electrodes. Now there's a method that could pave the way for mass production of nanogap electrodes.
