Communication

Communication is the process of conveying information from one point to another. Basically, a communication system consists of a transmitter (sender) and a receiver (recipient) connected via a physical medium called the channel. SINTEF ICT conducts research focused on developing systems facilitating fast, reliable and energy-efficient data communication using electromagnetic signals via all types of channel. We frequently develop hardware prototypes in order to test and verify our researched concepts.

Communication acoustics

Sound signals such as speech and music carry important and desired information in our everyday lives. Communication acoustics deals with the transmission, reception, and processing of such sound. In addition to a thorough understanding of sound propagation, electronics, and signal processing, understanding how we humans percieve sound is essential in communication acoustics.

Environmental Monitoring

The monitoring of critical environmental parameters is particularly important as part of the sustainable development of contemporary society. For example, current levels of marine resource exploitation demand accurate monitoring methods in order to support appropriate management strategies. The same applies to the major pressures exerted on the environment by the shipping and oil- and gas industries. SINTEF ICT is active as a driving force in this field and collaborates both with industry and the public sector to develop methods and technologies for accurate and effective environmental monitoring. Our project activities include;

Navigation

Navigation is the art and science of determining the position and course of an object of interest. In the past the term was most often applied to ships, but today navigation is more important than ever and affects everyone. The cutting edge of navigation technology is focused not only on ever improving accuracy, but also on increasing availability to allow users of smartphones and other devices to navigate indoors and out, as well as reliability to protect users of navigation products from errors.
