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.
Örebro is part of multi-million investment in mining research: “to set new world standard”
LKAB is investing SEK 80 million in research towards sustainable mining. Örebro University, with its expertise in AI and autonomous systems, is one of three universities whose researchers will contribute to the development.
AI and eye tracking may help doctors make difficult patient decisions
Doctors could get an objective report to make better decisions about patients’ medical fitness to possess a driving licence using artificial intelligence and eye tracking. This is the goal of the new AI project Dash at Örebro University.
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.
