    International project to improve the internet connection for everyone

    Karlstad University and Deutsche Telekom are collaborating on a project intended to improve the internet connection for users. The goal is for the technology to be incorporated into every mobile phone within five years.

    Mobile phones use 4G, 5G, and Wi-Fi to access the internet. The project called MultiAccess will tie them together in a flexible way and thus improve the connection.

    Multiscale models help solve huge problems

    Knowing how long stored carbon dioxide stays in the ground or how the groundwater flows below the ground surface are difficult questions to answer. Mathematical calculations often become so complicated that computers cannot handle them.

    This kind of research began in the 1970s when oil and gas were to be extracted in the North Atlantic. Omar Richardson, a new doctor of mathematics at Karlstad University, has in his dissertation "Multiscale models and simulations for diffusion and interaction in heterogeneous domains" researched how mathematical models can provide answers to complicated questions.

    Research profile High Quality Networked Services in a Mobile World (HITS) has been concluded

    The overall goal for HITS was to contribute to the development of high-quality networked services for a mobile world through world-class research and industrial collaboration. The project started in September 2014 and concluded in 2020 with excellent results.

    Within the HITS research profile, researchers from Computer Science at Karlstad University collaborated with the following partners from the Swedish IT industry to find new high-quality network services for a mobile world – Clavister, Ericsson, Icomera, Sandvine, and Tieto.

    The project’s every target and intermediate target was achieved with excellent results. We contributed to the development of state-of-the-art technology and products. We also bolstered research and education in Computer Science and Computer Engineering at Karlstad University.

    DAMI4.0 – New research centre pools expertise in red-hot area

    Steam engines, electrification, and CNC – three seminal events in industrial history. These days, digitisation is putting pressure on the industry. With the new research centre called DAMI4.0, Karlstad University will be ready to meet the industry’s demands for new technology.

    Noisy steam engines and welding robots have made a huge difference to industrial development. 2021 finds us at the threshold of the fourth industrial revolution with various technological solutions that will generate more sustainable production and act as a fail-safe for human error.

    B2B Forum on SmartIndustry 2021

    January 20 - 21, the digital conference B2B Forum on SmartIndustri was held at Karlstad University. The purpose was to highlight the strengths of Industry 4.0 and the ways in which its technical aspects are relevant.

    The program for the technical conference focused on the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), Edge / Cloud computing, 5G Networks and the role that machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have for the steel, pulp, paper and process industries.

    The project Privacy&Us – how to combine privacy and usability

    We are often exposed to privacy information that is designed in a way that urges us to quickly give our consent and disclose more data than necessary. Through the project Privacy&Us, Karlstad University has for the first time coordinated a project within a European framework programme.

    The project Privacy&Us (Privacy & Usability), which ended recently, has trained thirteen innovative Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) within the field of privacy and usability in reasoning, designing and developing new useful solutions to protect the privacy of citizens.

    - The expertise within the Privacy&Us project is very important for the business sector, authorities and the academic community and we are pleased that it has been so successful, says Simone Fischer-Hübner, professor of computer science at Karlstad University.
