About Digital Futures
Digital Futures researches and develops digital technologies that can bring solutions to great societal challenges, in Sweden and globally. Digitalization has the potential to create a more resource efficient and sustainable society although it also poses some of the major scientific and technical challenges of our time. With Digital Futures, a new research area is emerging.
Autonomous Systems, Formation Flying and In-Orbit Servicing and Assembling Technologies
This PhD project is carried out in collaboration with the Center for Autonomous Systems at KTH and the Swedish Space Corporation.
C*-actions on kinematics
This PhD project was carried out in collaboration with General Motors Research and Development Center and the Center for Applied Mathematics, University of Notre Dame.
Robots that lend a “hand” carrying objects are a breakthrough for human-machine cooperation
Physical interaction between robots and humans is advancing to a new level, as researchers report.
Teamwork makes robots better helpers
KTH researchers are helping robots learn to cooperate, a difficult but potentially revolutionary challenge.
A Social Robot in a Fur Cap
The talking robotic head Furhat will be presented by KTH researchers at the RobotVille Festival in London December 1-4.
Department of Intelligent Systems
We conduct research and education in the general area of intelligent systems. Our research activities range from basic and theoretical to applications in autonomous systems, robotics, AI and machine learning, media processing, sensors, micro and nanosystems, and communications.
Grasping and Manipulation
We use hands to tie shoes, write, wash dishes, play the piano: these tasks involve close and complex interaction with objects and we can execute them even if one of our hands/arms/fingers is injured or not functioning properly. Our dexterity and sensory capabilities have developed through a long process of evolution - however, for the above tasks, coupling the sensing and dexterity with efficient representations, planning and execution is necessary.
