Research intro


The research at our department is connected to our laboratories.

The Cyber-Physical Systems Lab

Focuses on autonomous ships and the practical needs of Ålesund's world-leading maritime industrial cluster, as well as biomechanical robotics and medical technology.

The Digital Transformation Lab

Focuses on service innovation, entrepreneurship and technology in various enterprises both within the private and public sector. We also do research on simulation and visualization for applied use and the use of social robots in education, caretaking and other settings.
