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.
SmokeBot – a robot serving rescue units
A robot that can both see and navigate in smoke-filled areas, as well as discover gas leaks and plot maps of areas it has been in – this is the result of the EU-funded research project SmokeBot, led by Örebro researcher Achim Lilienthal.
Collaboration with Aston University can strengthen AI research
Many new ideas about collaboration took shape when researchers from Aston University in Birmingham visited Örebro University. “We can complement each other in a good way,” says Kaiming Zhou, researcher at Aston.
Areas of Research
- 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.
