Korean-Swedish Robotics Cooperation

Researchers at Umeå University, Sweden and South Korea’s oldest university Sungkyunkwan are cooperating to develop robots that can see. The methods will have applications which can be used with everything from forest machinery to health care in the future. Within a period of 5 to 10 years, robots will become an important part of our day-to-day life according to prof. Anton Shiriaev head of the Robotics and Control Lab, Umea University.
The research at the RCL is focused on the development of mathematical models for real-world systems, from heavy-lifting hydraulic cranes to the fluid flow within the human brain and the subsequent use of such models for sensing, visualization, prediction and control of important variables within these systems.
The Swedish-Korean Cooperation started in 2007 thanks to grants, in particular from The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education (STINT) and from the Kempe Foundation.
