An arm from an industrial robot, a scanning head produced in a 3D printer, and a small amount of new robotic technology. These are the main ingredients in the invention made by two students in connection with their now completed MSc project. The patent is in the bag and they will launch an ultrasound robot on the global market in a few months. (Photo: Johannes Hollensberg)

Smart robot can send ultrasound scans across the Internet

Two students have built a robotic ultrasound scanner that makes it possible for doctors to carry out image-diagnostic procedures on patients located at a distance from hospitals. The invention will be launched on the global market in the course of a few months.

High-technological faeces will detect bowel problems

A new measurement method will make life easier for people with defecation problems. A group of engineering students in Aarhus is collaborating with Chinese researchers to develop intelligent artificial faeces that can reveal what causes bowel problems in people who go to the toilet too infrequently, too often or too late.

Carpenter Prize 2015 awarded to Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard

Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard, Department of Engineering, has been awarded the Danish Carpenter Prize (Tømrerpris) for his work with wood as a building material.

Stine Pedersen won this year’s European university competition in indoor environment technology. She built a small machine that registers indoor environment conditions for the first time, as well as providing feedback from people in the room. Her initial empirical study indicates that the way we experience indoor comfort is much more subjective than researchers previously thought. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
