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.
The research project CPS Plant will develop a framework for the Norwegian approach for the digital manufacturing industry. The consortium consists of 3 Norwegian industry partners, Norsk Hydro, Benteler Automotive and Hycast, and SINTEF Digital and NTNU (Trondheim and Gjovik) are the academic partners. SINTEF Raufoss Manufacturing is the project leader.
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.
Cooled patients are treated differently
What is the best form of first aid for a cold, injured body? Mountain medicine researchers are now co-operating to find the answer. At present there is actually no “best practice” for treating this type of patients.
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.
