KTH scored third place in the GCDC

During the weekend of 28 and 29 May 2016, the city of Helmond was the centre of an international event in the field of cooperative driving: the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC). Out of ten student teams from six European countries, KTH scored a place in the top three with one of their two competing vehicles.

Robots to communicate by body language

Sometimes all it takes to get help from someone is to wave at them, or point. Now the same is true for robots. Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology have completed work on an EU project aimed at enabling robots to cooperate with one another on complex jobs, by using body language.

The yearbook of 2015

Tests show how trucks can reuse engine heat for power

A 195-year-old discovery is behind a new system that will save vehicles hundreds of litres of fuel and reduce their carbon emissions by as much as 1,000 tonnes per year.


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.
