Ongoing research projects

The objective of ESS-H+ is to leverage on the results of the KKS research profile Embedded Sensor Systems for Health (ESS-H) at Mälardalen University (MDH), through further development of the scientific excellenceand the international recognitionthat has been founded through ESS-H


Project manager at MDH: Maria Lindén

Main financing: KK-stiftelsen

The ESS-H+ profile will aim for an increased specialization, a significant progression, and raised scientific ambitions, as compared to ESS-H, through deepened co-production with our partner companies within one integrated Focus Area: Sensor systems for health monitoring/monitoring of humans.

FlexiHealth focuses on designing novel mobility management protocols for IoT networks through enhancing the IoT architecture, enriching by the Fog computing concept.


Project manager at MDH: Hossein Fotouhi

Main financing: The Knowledge Foundation

The aim of this project is to propose how the automation pyramid should be developed towards a network-centric solution where business-critical and production-critical traffic can coexist, in order to enable new business models and innovations in the Swedish process industry.


Project manager at MDH: Mats Björkman

Main financing: Vinnova

FiC will provide generic solutions for Future factories in the Cloud in the form of an integrated set of techniques and generic tools for future smart products and production systems, including architectural templates for cloud based production; algorithms and tools for safe and secure communication and computation, specifically handling big-data; and techniques for efficient and predictable sharing of computation and communication resources.


Project manager at MDH: Hans A Hansson

Main financing: The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research

The aim of this project is to identify novel use cases of eHealth that take advantage of 5G capabilities, study and develop 5G enablers for the use cases, develop and validate actual eHealth solutions in real environments and real 5G test networks, and disseminate and exploit the results.


Project manager at MDH: Cristina Seceleanu
