Research Environments

Multisensory studio

The Multisensory studio provides means for conducting a variety of experiments and test, including:

  • motion capture studies, using a 16-IR camera system and 8-channel audio
  • sound and music perception studies
  • perception studies
  • eye-tracking studies, using Tobii eye-tracking technology
  • usability tests of for example websites and programs

The studio consists of two smaller rooms, separated by a wall with a built in one-way mirror, and it accomodates eight desktop computers, plus about six places for laptop comptuers.

Apart for experiments in research projects, the studio is mainly used for both bachelor and master thesis projects, and for project and laborations in the following courses:

DH2660 Haptics
DM2350 Human Perception for Information Technology
DT2140 Multimodal Interaction and Interfaces
DT2213 Musical Communication and Music Technology
DT2212 Music Acoustics
DT2300 Sound in Interaction
DT2410 Audio Technology

Haptic lab

The haptic lab provides facilities for research within the field of haptics. The lab gives access to tools for development and evaluation of haptic interfaces in different application areas such as computer games, scientific visualization and medical simulation.

Interaction lab

The Interaction lab is an open lab space allowing for work within the field of Interaction design. The lab today is mainly for students enrolled in the HCI master programme, providing means for conducting workshops and other student related work.

KTH R1 Experimental Performance Space and Presence Laboratory

The KTH R1 Experimental Performance Space is a project at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, with support from Akademiska Hus and EIT ICT Labs.

Offset lab

On Teknikringen 46 is the department's printing lab with a Heidelberg GTO 52 single color and a Polar cutting machine for cutting up to 10 inch stacks of paper.

Centre for Art, Technology, and Design (CSC/KTH)

The Centre for Art, Technology, and Design at CSC/KTH is an initiative focusing on research and education at both KTH and art schools in Stockholm. It provides an arena for the flourishing of mutual interactions between engineers, artists and designers with the potential of bosting creativity and innovation by supporting the possibility to think outside the box in a mix of technological, artistic, design approaches. The centre makes use of advanced laboratory facilities both at KTH and at participating art schools.
The Centre for Art, Technology, and Design continues a number of activities and projects that have taken place at KTH since many years, and which have been located at different places on campus. There is e.g. the doctoral programme Art, Technology and Design (KTH/Konstfack); the Centre for Opera and Technology (COT); the series of artistic performances and events in R1; the centre formations Mobile Life and Grean Leap; the Art & Science workshop organised at Värmeverket in 2012; the Communication Seminars at the CSC school (2006-2012); and various interdisciplinary collaborations and projects, as well as individual research projects. The initiative will continue and further develop these activities, in particular as regards research and connection to teaching.
The centre functions as a technological hub towards art schools in Stockholm and elsewhere and is closely affiliated with the doctoral programme Art, Technology and Design (KTH/Konstfack). Apart from realising innovative ideas and projects, the centre produces knowledge about working with and managing cultural and professional differences. It also wants to act as a stimulus for the culture and service sector.
The Centre for Art, Technology, and Design is a collaboration between the ABE, CSC, and ITM schools at KTH, in close association with several art schools in Stockholm. The CSC school serves as host for the centre, but the centre supports activities and research all over KTH.
