Using advanced signal treatment, researchers can now divide a room into sound zones that do not disturb each other. In the coming three years, they will collaborate with the Chinese acoustic company GoerTek Inc. They will develop the technology so it can be commercialised and thereby moved out of the laboratory and into our living rooms.

Researchers will use earth antennas to find groundwater

Researchers will develop antenna technology in a new project to locate and measure groundwater without expensive drillings.

Three engineering students have developed a new technology that enables more precise and effective radiation therapy of cervical cancer. It took less than six months from the initial idea to completion of the prototype, and the first patient has already been treated. Pictured from left are Sofie Mikkelsen, Line Nørgaard Christensen and Nita Volder Hansen. (Photo: Maria Randima Brauer Sørensen)
Images from an MRI scan are put into a computer-based design program. Here the user calculates how the radioactive rays hit the cervical tumour most precisely, and then presses the print button. Nine hours later, a small holder is ready for the needles that direct the beams, and this invention can prove to have great significance for the treatment of cancer patients. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

Engineering in Aarhus celebrates its centenary

In November 2015, it is 100 years since the first engineering degree programme was established in Aarhus. Three generations of graduates have been a significant driving force in the industrialisation of the city and the region, and in developing the technology-based society we know today.

Bowling robot ready for the World Robot Olympiad

The only Danish team to qualify for the World Robot Olympiad consists of two engineering students from Aarhus University. They have made a small bowling figure filled with advanced technology hardware. The olympiad takes place in Qatar in early November. Read more (in Danish only) here.

A new form of traffic control can predict the flow of cars via advanced computer simulations and direct each individual motorist in the most appropriate direction, thus avoiding traffic jams. The method can ultimately make the European road network intelligent without notable investments in technological hardware. (Photo: Colourbox)

New technology can reduce traffic jams

Researchers are now taking a new step towards more intelligent traffic management. Individual motorists will reach their destination faster, cheaper and greener. The flow of traffic will be optimally distributed on the roads, and all the coordination will be automatic and wireless via GPS systems in the cars.

Coloured artificial light can regulate our circadian rhythm and provide us with a better sleep quality. But how should the light be combined and interact with daylight? How strong should it be? What colour composition and heat balance are optimal? Could it be thought that the good mix is individual? Researchers are in the process of studying the full potential of circadian rhythm lighting in a pilot study among nursing home residents. (Photo: Colourbox)
Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard wants a closer understanding of how coloured circadian rhythm lighting and its interaction with the surroundings and daylight can be incorporated into the architecture. He hopes that in the future we will be able to live in buildings that provide better sleep quality. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

Coloured light helps elderly people to sleep better

Researchers at Aarhus University are studying the effect on the elderly of a special form of circadian rhythm lighting. The light changes colour during the day, and the first tests indicate that it can provide a better quality of sleep.
