SINTEF Digital Micro-systems and Sensors
Microsystems and sensors
Microsystems are miniaturised systems that connect the physical to the digital world. A microsystem typically consists of a sensor, a processing unit and an actuator that triggers its operation. Nanotechnology is often integrated into microsystems to boost functionality and performance.
I3DS project intends to develop a generic modular Inspector Sensors Suite (INSES) which will be a smart collection of building blocks and a common set of various sensors answering the needs of near-future space exploration missions in terms of remote and contact sensors with integrated pre-processing and data concentration functions.
PolSi – A new industrial production method for next generation lab-on-a-chip systems
The objective of the project is to develop a new method for producing better and less expensive lab-on-a-chip systems, e.g. for medical diagnostics.
Smart protective solutions for industrial safety and productivity in the cold
Working in cold climates involves various effects on work, health and performance. The degree of cold exposure is essential for the severity and risks associated with the exposure. Cold environment disturbs not only the machinery of industrial processes and vehicles, but is also very crucial factor to reduce worker's comfort, performance and safety.
New allergy test promises safer antibiotic use
Allergies to antibiotics are the commonest form of medication allergies and, in the worst cases, can result in anaphylaxis and death. SINTEF is participating in the development of a new allergy test that will make it easier to provide patients with safe and correct treatments.
Eagle-eyed subsea camera
A new subsea camera has been developed that can see two to three times further under water than existing cameras and calculate distances to objects. This will make work carried out under water much easier.
