The scientific community in Stockholm is already well on the way on a number of promising research projects:
Life science imaging at KTH – Karolinska
The research focuses on the early stages of the imaging chain, i.e. on sensors and interaction from radiation sources to matched sources/detectors and contrast media/biological markers (molecular imaging) to the generation of images. http://www.lsi.kth.se/index.htm
The Affective Health project
The project explores mobile services that empower people to monitor and understand their own stress levels vis-à-vis their everyday activities. By providing users with inspiring visualizations of data captured from body sensors biofeedback loops are created.
Distributed Global Health Technology
The DIGHT project is addressing the problem of building a scalable and highly available information store for the Electronic Health Records (EHRs) of the over one billion citizens of India. http://dight.sics.se
GINSENG - Performance Control in Wireless Sensor Networks
NES participates in the GINSENG project, an EU project that targets performance controlled Wireless Sensor Networks, i.e. sensor networks that provide performance assurances for metrics such as delay and reliability.
Contiki – Connecting the Next Billion Devices
Contiki is an open source, highly portable, multi-tasking operating system for memory-efficient networked embedded systems and wireless sensor networks.
Designing systems for supple interaction
Supple systems rely on subtle signals; rich human communication and interpretation strategies such as emotion, social ritual, nonverbal communication, and kinaesthetic engagement; and emergent dynamics, to provide engaging moment-to-moment experiences. http://www.mobilelifecentre.org/
