Smart help for phone users
The elderly may find that using a smartphone is difficult and incomprehensible, while the disabled may encounter problems because phone operation requires delicate motor functions. But one inventor saw no reason for it to be this way – and has found a solution to the problem.
A friendly robot
Researchers have developed a robot that adjusts its movements in order to avoid colliding with the people and objects around it. This provides new opportunities for more friendly interaction between people and machines.
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.
Descramble – logging tool
As partner in the ongoing Horizon 2020 project, SINTEF ICT is developing a High Temperature logging tool for measuring pressure and temperature in super critical geothermal wells.
UTOFIA will offer a compact and cost-effective underwater imaging system for turbid environments.
SINTEF's labs cover a large variety of fields in acoustics, including noise, hearing, building acoustics, underwater acoustics, and auralisation.
Environmental Exposure Lab
The Environmental Exposure Lab has equipment to expose sensors and electronics for rough external stress of various kinds.
Health Technology Innovation Lab
The Health Technology Innovation Lab is an innovation and demonstration environment for physiological monitoring equipment and integrated Telecare-, Telehealth- and Smart home solutions.
