Drifting by Intention: New book on design research

Design and engineering are often seen as solution-oriented disciplines. So how do you design not only to solve a challenge, but also to build knowledge? This is the focus of a new book written by the architect, Professor Peter Gall Krogh. The book has just been published by Springer Nature.

More than DKK 10 million of the project’s total of DKK 70.4 million has been earmarked for SMEs that are not part of the consortium, but who wants to try out digital twins in their production. Photo: Colourbox.

Digital brains to give SMEs easy access to digital twins

The EU Research and Innovation Programme, Horizon 2020, has granted more than DKK 70 million (EUR 9.4 million) to a new research project to make it easy for small and medium-sized European production companies to benefit from digital twins.

EUR 35 million to solve future challenges for Danish industry

With more than a quarter of a billion DKK, and in close collaboration with more than 50 industrial partners, Danish researchers and experts are now joining forces in the MADE FAST development project, aiming to make Danish production more efficient, flexible and sustainable.

New robotic AI will improve sustainability in agriculture

An international team consisting of five universities and three leading industrial companies aims to transform health, food and agriculture technology via new open-source, 'all-round' artificial intelligence for modern and future robots.

Panda poo, ants and slugs could be key to the green fuel of tomorrow

A new research project at Aarhus University will exploit millions of years of evolution to develop sustainable biofuels. Among other things, the solution lies in the digestive system of pandas.

‘Paradise’ and modern construction

Aliakbar Kamari is a new tenure track assistant professor at the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University. With PhD degrees in both architecture and engineering, and with his newly developed BIM-based tool, Aliakbar Kamari will be an important figure in the university's research group for tectonic design.

Measuring and documenting gravel and limestone quarries, cliff faces and similar natural and man-made formations is often done using drones that photograph the area. New research may make the pilots superfluous. (NB: The vertical rod on top of the drone carries a wind detector for test purposes, and it is not present on the final version of the drone.)

Drones can now scan terrain and excavations without human intervention

Drone pilots may become superfluous in the future. New research from Aarhus University has allowed artificial intelligence to take over control of drones scanning and measuring terrain.

The project is headed by Professor Anders Bentien at Aarhus University. Partners in the project are DTU Energy (Technical University of Denmark), Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) as well as the companies VisBlue and Danish Power Systems, which manufacture flow batteries and membranes for stacks, respectively.

Highly efficient batteries to keep electricity flowing when renewables cannot keep up

A new research project at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, will develop highly efficient, but inexpensive, components in flow batteries. The aim is to disrupt the field of stationary batteries, which are necessary for the transition to a green energy system.

"This means that it looks as if the human-like heel-to-toe gait may have developed 3.5 million years ago because the TTA developed at this time. Moreover, this is also in line with the preserved footprints found in parts of Ethiopia from that epoch," says Marcelo Dias, Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. Photo: M.

Previously overlooked part of the human foot is the key to its development and function

A new discovery has turned our entire perception of the function and evolution of the human foot upside-down. The discovery has recently been published in the scientific journal Nature.
