KTH researchers developing new approaches to robotics
Robotics has the potential to unlock large benefits for society, but new applications, such as assistive robotics functions in healthcare require fundamental breakthroughs in how robots reason and interact with the world. Associate Professor Florian Pokorny leads two new research projects that push the boundaries of data-driven robotics.
New clothing design mimics muscles used when singing
Researchers develop garment that can emulate what it feels like when someone is singing, breaking new ground in making performing arts more interactive and immersive.
How you speak matters – not only what you say
The Stockholm region competition of the Forskar Grand Prix took place during ForskarFredag on 30 September. Sanne van Waveren from the department of robotics, perception and learning took second place. Read about her experience in communicating with a general audience.
Towards complexity-aware-decision-making for robots
Is it possible to optimise robots' decision-making so that decisions are good and simple? Yes, doctoral student Elis Stefansson's research has shown that. Now, he has won the Outstanding Student Paper Prize 2022 by the IEEE Control Systems Society Technical Committee on Hybrid Systems. This prize is given annually at the IEEE Conference on Decision and Control.
