Two professors at NTNU have been awarded prestigious ERC Advanced Grants by the European Research Council.
Professor Kristin Ytterstad Pettersen at AMOS and Department of Engineering Cybernetics and Professor Henrik Koch at Department of Chemistry have each been awarded the prestigious ERC Advanced Grant by the European Research Council.
Each grant can provide up to NOK 25 million in support over five years.
The second edition of a popular textbook Handbook of Marine Craft Hydrodynamics and Motion Control, authored by Professor Thor I Fossen, from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is just released.
Waves present an enormous challenge for the world’s roughly 91,000 commercial vessels, but predicting sea conditions is challenging. A new approach uses the movements of ships themselves to create an online estimate of what kinds of waves ships can expect.
A new partnership between the Centre for the 4th Industrial Revolution Ocean and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has been established to establish trust in ocean data collected from autonomous underwater vehicles.
From a user perspective, the case for autonomous, zero-emission ferries is very appealing. Such vessels could solve both the transport and environmental needs of cities and local communities, while helping to decongest heavy traffic in urban centres.
The primary objective of TRUSST is to innovate an integrated assurance framework that takes as point of departure the insight that autonomous transport systems are formed by a complex and interdependent system of people, technology, organisations, regulators and the natural environment.
The IEEE OES Autonomous Maritime Systems Rising Star Award for 2020 has been awarded to Martin Ludvigsen at the Department of Marine Technology and NTNU AMOS.
NTNU AMOS and Department of Biology postdoc Glaucia Moreira Fragoso has secured a grant of 7.2 million NOK from the Norwegian Research Council (NFR) through NFR’s “Researcher Project for Young Talents” initiative. The initiative’s purpose is to “give talented young researchers under the age of 40 in all disciplines and research areas the opportunity to pursue their own research ideas and lead a resear
On Monday 7 December, Rector Anne Borg, NTNU, and the head of the European Space Agency ESA Johann-Dietrich Wörner signed an agreement on cooperation. The Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering hosts the agreement.
We know that many ships, trucks, and even ammunition have been dumped or sunk in Norway’s largest lake. This year saw the start of a large research project to discover what is hidden in the deep.
Autonomous vehicles are in the wind like never before. At NTNU, researchers have developed a circuit board that can be adapted to different drones with simple steps. Airbus has tested the system on a prototype for lunar landing.
In 1693, near Smeerenburg at the northwestern tip of Spitsbergen, more than 17 Dutch whaling ships were sunk by a French fleet following direct orders from King Louis XIV.
Now an interdisciplinary research team from NTNU and UIT, using AMOS technology, have gone looking for the lost fleet. What they found was surprising and worrying.
What happens when everything that can go wrong, goes wrong? That is the topic for Tore Mo-Bjørklund's recent blog post.
AMOS Director, Professor Asgeir Sørensen, has participated in the first Technoport Podcast. Listen to what he had to say about Norway's maritime potential, cybernetics, Greta Thunberg and how to start real change and progress here.
The Norwegian Science Academy (DNVA) and Equinor are providing 25 million NOK to a new research center at NTNU. The center will increase our knowledge of the ocean by developing new underwater-robotics technology.
The new promise of funding from the Norwegian government ensures that the project will not suffer any delays in the coming year.
NTNU have bought a six-meter-long snake-drone. The drone is made by Eelume and will be tested and operated in the Trondheim fjord.
PhD candidate at NTNU AMOS and the Department om Technical Cybernetics, Kristoffer Gryte, has been working on alternative GPS solutions for his doctorate. His results could change the way we operate commercial drones.
In recent articles at Aftenposten and Fiskeri and Havbruk, Director of NTNU AMOS and professor at the Department of Marine Technology, Asgeir Sørensen, writes about how changing climate presents considerable challenges for arctic areas.
NTNU ocean survey technology, operated by professor Martin Ludvigsen's AUR-team, has helped researchers at UiT Norges arktiske universitet survey hydrocarbon seeps in the Arctic Oceans.
The research conducted at NTNU AMOS is opening new ways of understanding the world, but knowledge is only useful if people are aware of it, and when you want to reach a larger audience, what better way than to make a movie?
Researchers at NTNU AMOS, in collaboration with researchers at the Talinn University of Technology and the Estonian University of Life Science, have shown how "turtle robots" are less intrusive to the salmon in Norwegian fish farms.
Erlend Andreas Basso at NTNU in Trondheim (Cybernetics and Robotics) won the NFEA's award for best master's thesis 2019, with the thesis: «Dynamic Task Priority Control of Articulated Intervention AUVs Using Control Lyapunov and Control Barrier Function based Quadratic Programs »
The startup’s autonomous system senses and melts frozen buildup
In 2013 Ph.D. candidate Kim L. Sorensen and his advisor, IEEE Senior Member Tor Arne Johansen, talked with U.S. Coast Guard representatives about a relatively new challenge for the military: the buildup of ice on drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles. UAVs weren’t outfitted with protection to eliminate ice buildup.
