Örebro University once again high on list of world’s best universities
Örebro University is in place 405 when Times Higher Education ranks the world’s best universities – thanks to high quality research and a high degree of citations.
Culturally competent robots – the future in elderly care
Future robots will assist the elderly while adapting to the culture of the individual they are caring for. The first of this type of robots are now being tested in retirement homes within the scope of "Caresses", an interdisciplinary project where AI...
Making robots take over heavy-duty work in boilers
High-velocity metal coating of power plant boilers is heavy-duty work, not to mention very hot. Robotics researchers at Örebro University are now, in collaboration with Alfred Nobel Science Park and MH Engineering, developing a method for tackling these...
Robotics researchers inspired by the navigation skills of ants
By imitating ants’ behaviour, robots could become less expensive but also more reliable in their navigation, as shown in the doctoral thesis by robotics researcher Ali Abdul Khaliq.
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.
Lectures, award ceremony and banquet at the University's annual academic celebrations
Every year in February, Örebro University is staging its academic celebrations. The festivities start on the Friday with the Vice-Chancellor’s reception and academic celebration concert. The Saturday offers popular science lectures at the Conventum...
Developing artificial intelligence – by studying humans
“Research in artificial intelligence imitates the human ability to draw conclusions,” says Mehul Bhatt, who is a new professor in computer science at Örebro University, and funded by the Knowledge Foundation (KKS) and Enfo AB. He wants to ease the...
Örebro researchers develop robotics in cooperation with regional companies
Together with Alfred Nobel Science Park and companies in the region, Örebro researchers are developing a platform to test new methods of using artificial intelligence and robots in industry.
Helping robots and humans to be friends
Robots will perform the dangerous parts of the job, while human operators will make sure the work gets done properly. Robotics researchers are using virtual reality to develop ways to clean industrial machines, where the interaction between man and...
