In the near future, autonomous aerial robots will monitor and repair ageing infrastructure, creating a more secure operational environment for humans. How we get there? Project AERO-TRAIN aims at educating the future researchers in the field of Aerial Robotics that will find the technical solutions. – I believe this project is building the future of human robot interaction in autonomous aerial inspection missions, says George Nikolakopoulos, Professor of Robotics and AI.
AI is becoming an important tool in the competition for Swedish Olympic and World Cup medals. Luleå University of Technology's researchers in robotics and machine learning have started a collaboration with the Boden company TNTX with the goal of helping the alpine national team to ski faster and safer.
Trafikverket is investing 150 million over ten years in pioneering railway research at Luleå University of Technology. Luleå Railway Research Center (JVTC) is trusted to build excellence in research of railways, with a focus on operation and maintenance of infrastructure and railway bridges. This grant from Trafikverket will facilitate the Swedish railway sectors efforts to achieve increased operational reliability and extended service life, higher capacity and safety which is expected to result in higher punctuality of trains.
