Clean air is a basic necessity for human existence. Poor air quality has accounted for over 4.2 million deaths globally in 2016. As such, there is a need for highly sensitive gas sensors which can be integrated into an early detection system, should air quality fall below predefined thresholds.
There are significant resources of wind power in areas where few people live, and which cannot be exploited due to a weak grid. A solution is to produce hydrogen and export it.
ROMO – RObotics for Moving Objects within manufacturing and healthcare – enabling the future internet of things
Development of methods and tools that will enable the online estimation and identification of moving objects and support the robot interaction and manipulation of such objects in real time.
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.
