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.
Researchers are developing a robot that kills viruses and bacteria
Researchers at Örebro University are developing an open source and easy-to-build robot that uses UV-C light to kill COVID19 and other viruses. The goal is to allow anyone to build a robot and then use the software that the researchers have developed.
AI can detect the spread of fake news
A correct quote or truthful image can suddenly be turned into false propaganda. Extremely small modifications are enough to change the entire meaning. Örebro University Professor Mehul Bhatt, together with an international team, is researching how...
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.
