A group of engineering students has created a small, new robot with built-in electronic hardware that enables it to “see”, “hear” and move concurrently with its operator. From the right: Mikkel Stampe Pedersen, Jakob Flarup Øllgaard and Allan Hansen (Photo: Henrik Olsen).

Students behind new robot with senses

A small, new robot has seen the light in the laboratories at Aarhus University School of Engineering. Mechanical eyes and ears allow the operator to use intuitive steering in new ways.

Researchers will develop a computer system to replace the manual surveillance of security-critical locations such as bridges, airports and power plants with automatic detection of any kind of suspicious behaviour.

New computer model reduces risk of terrorist attacks

Are Danish surveillance systems good enough to prevent attacks on the country's infra structure? In a new project, researchers will develop a computer program to optimise security.

Sound monitoring system reduces noise levels in intensive care units

In the future, patients in intensive care units will have more quietness. Two engineering students have developed a prototype of a sound monitoring system that alerts nurses and doctors when the sound level in the hospital bed rooms has a negative influence on the patients' rehabilitation.
