The focus is on:

  • adaptive autonomy
  • safe and secure path planning
  • real-time 3D vision
  • mission planning for collaborating autonomous vehicles
  • human-robot interaction
  • dependable electronics in biomedical engineering and avionic systems.

Ongoing research projects

AFarCloud will provide a distributed platform for autonomous farming that will allow the integration and cooperation of agriculture Cyber Physical Systems in real-time in order to increase efficiency, productivity, animal health, food quality and reduce farm labour costs.


Project manager at MDH: Baran Cürüklü

The purpose of the project is to, in close collaboration with the department of rehabilitation medicine at Danderyd Hospital, implement ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG) mediated NeuroFeedback (NF) rehabilitation for stroke patients to study 1) the mechanisms of neuroplasticity that enable improved motor recovery and 2) the impact of severity of motor dysfunction on a) neuroplasticity, and b) on the hand grasping motor outcome of the NF rehabilitation.

The objective of RECOG is to develop new technology for innovative brain-training for people with cognitive deficits. The ability to focus our attention on relevant information, maintain and manipulate this information during a short period of time (our Working Memory, WM), is central for human cognition.
