The Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS), founded in 1998, is a strong research environment which performs research on autonomous systems, with a focus on their perceptual and cognitive capabilities. The center is internationally known for its expertise within artificial intelligence and robotics, and their integration. It has a strong tradition of working together in close collaboration with industrial partners in Sweden and around the world.
Allowing robots to adapt
Already today there are robots in hospitals, schools, shops and in our homes. But for robots to function optimally in their interaction with humans, they have to be able to adapt to changes in their environment. In his doctoral thesis, computer scientist...
Minister for Enterprise and Innovation: “Örebro has become one of the hubs in Sweden for AI”
“Amy Loutfi and other researchers are not only important for their research, but also for conveying knowledge of AI further,” says Mikael Damberg, Sweden’s Minister for Enterprise and Innovation.
Areas of Research
- Artificial intelligence
- Autonomous systems
At AASS we perform multidisciplinary research in autonomous systems with a focus on their perceptual and cognitive capabilities and their integration. The study of these two central issues provides the scientific basis for the development and application of real autonomous systems. Our two major application areas are: development of autonomous professional vehicles in joint projects with world-leading companies as Atlas Copco, Volvo Construction Equipment, Linde Material Handling, Kollmorgen Automation AB; development of a range of autonomous-systems solutions for elderly care in domestic environments as in Ängen senior residence facility in Örebro run by Örebro municipality.
