Next industrial revolution is here
Robots and humans will work together, side by side. Göran Billeson
Systems with a high degree of autonomy can not only act together with people, but can also draw their own conclusions and learn from their experiences. The area includes a large number of different research areas, where LiU researchers are on the leading edge. Examples are computer vision, vehicles, artificial intelligence, sensor fusion, and scientific visualisation.
In the summer of 2015 the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program, WASP, was launched - an investment in building knowledge for the future worth SEK 1.8 billion over ten years. Linköping University is the host university, but a large number of researchers from Chalmers, KTH and the University of Lund are also participating in the program.
