Safety and security

Safety, information security, and identity and trust management are becoming increasingly important in response to the accelerated use of ICT-based control systems and distributed services, and the increased exchange of sensitive information. People expect ICT-based systems to be safe and secure. However, the complexity of our systems renders total safety and security impossible.

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;

Food Technology

In order to contribute towards securing sustainable food production, SINTEF ICT has focused on developing instrumentation technologies aimed at obtaining real-time data on foodstuff quality throughout the entire value chain. In this field we work closely with food research institutes, food technology providers and the food industry, and we have expertise in imaging, spectroscopy, acoustics, micro-sensors, X-ray instrumentation, robotics, process control and communications instrumentation. SINTEF ICT has a proven track record in the development of industrial instrumentation systems in the field of food technology, including the following;

Image analysis

Image analysis is the extraction of meaningful information from images; mainly from digital images by means of digital image processing techniques. Image analysis tasks can be as simple as reading bar coded tags or as sophisticated as identifying a person from their face. Our expertise in the field of image analysis covers the following subjects.

Information Security

Information security involves ensuring that information is only available to those who are authorized to see it (confidentiality), that the accuracy of data is maintained (integrity), and that IT systems and other facilities are present and usable when and where they are needed (availability). It's all about bringing the right information to the right people at the right time.

Medical Technology

Medical Technology is any technology that may be employed for the safe and effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment of, and rehabilitation after, illness and disease. It encompasses a wide range of products used to diagnose, monitor or treat diseases or medical conditions. Such technologies are aimed at improving the quality of health care by enabling earlier diagnoses, less invasive treatments, and reductions in hospital stays and rehabilitation times.

Quality and security technology

The importance of security in relation to IT-systems and information technology is generally accepted. How to build and maintain secure systems is nevertheless a major challenge.We do research on methodology and tools aiming to simplify specification, development, maintenance, documentation and certification within the security field. This work is based on international standards for security (ISO/IEC 27002, Common Criteria), risk management (ISO/FDIS 31000, ISO/DGuide 73, AS/NZS 4360), system documentation (RM-ODP) and modelling (UML - Unified Modelling Language).

Welfare Technology - ICT

Welfare Technology can help people in their daily lives. Examples include intelligent aids such as cleaning robots, sensors embedded in clothing, and smart homes. Welfare technology is closely linked to Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), but whereas AAL focuses on "addressing the needs of an aging population", Welfare Technology also addresses other users such as the disabled, schools, day care centres and workers in general.
