Smart technologies are only really smart when they can talk together. This also applies to agriculture, where internet-connected machines will pave the way for "agriculture 4.0". Senior researcher Claus Grøn Sørensen is working on just that: getting IoT products from many different manufacturers to be able to talk seamlessly together.

New knowledge about waves to keep oil platforms operational for longer

Open-sea trials will reveal to researchers how waves arise, develop and impact the surroundings. This will make it possible to keep oil platforms in the North Sea operational for longer.

How we solve the problems of today with the technology of tomorrow

The stage was set for inspiring ideas at the official opening of the ORBIT Lab on Wednesday 13 December, when Aarhus University staff and students were invited along with representatives from the business sector – and many interesting technological innovation projects were displayed.

"In this project, we have started a journey to construct a cognitive computing system as a proof of concept," says Associate Professor Farshad Moradi, Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.

Building a computer like a human brain: a technological revolution

For decades computers have been growing exponentially in computational power. However, the current technology is nearing a threshold: computing simply requires too much power.

Aarhus University opens large new innovation factory

Engineering students are full of good ideas that can help solve some of the world’s many problems. The Aarhus University School of Engineering is therefore kicking off a new initiative that – in collaboration with researchers and companies – will get the students’ ideas to flourish.

Grass can be turned into feed, fuel and valuable chemicals. But how do you optimise biomass and make the most efficient use of it for new products? Ib Johansen (left) and Morten Ambye-Jensen are spearheading the university’s research into biorefining technologies. (Photo: AU Communication)
By very precisely regulating pressure and temperature conditions, Ib Johansen can convert grass to oil in the present demonstration facility. The biomass is led through a 120-metre-long pipe, where it is heated to approximately 450 degrees and subjected to pressure corresponding to 350 bar. The process removes oxygen from the biomass and changes the relationship between hydrogen and carbon. (Photo: AU Communication)

Researchers will turn grass into a gold mine

With a multi-million grant, researchers can speed up development of the world’s largest and most advanced biorefinery facility. Here they will convert ordinary grass to feed, food products, fuel and plastic.

Sapere Aude grant for research into the Internet of the future

The Internet is undergoing a degree of change that only a few can imagine. The flow of information is in explosive growth, and this places extreme demands on the way we compress and store data. Researchers are now getting started on the creation of completely new conditions for communication between humans and things in the network.

This is what it looks like when artificial intelligence takes over the design process in building construction. Lasse Rahbek’s computer program has identified an optimal grid-scale construction than can solve impossible engineering and architectural tasks, at the same time as significantly reducing material consumption in the construction.

Super design for buildings based on artificial intelligence

Computing power is now so strong that it can design building constructions with such a degree of perfection that architects and engineers have to give up. Students are responsible for the super algorithm that controls everything, and could revolutionise building procedures when it is launched early next year.

With a new Industry 4.0 R&D Programme, companies and researchers have an opportunity to intensify their collaboration regarding technology-based innovation. Pictured here are Assistant Professor Michal Budzik, Department of Engineering, and PhD student Simon Heide-Jørgensen. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

New knowledge will get companies to take part in the fourth industrial revolution

Aarhus University will use a new programme to ensure that knowledge about digitalisation and materials technology will benefit Danish companies. This will prepare them for developing smarter products and production methods, so they can ride the Industry 4.0 wave.

The tiny robot is powered via energy harvested from ultrasonic waves using a piezoelectric device. This will be one of the major engineering challenges in the project, Farshad Moradi explains.
