Dr. Jörgen Ahlberg, Termisk Systemteknik AB

Multi- and hyper-spectral imaging

Dr. Jörgen Ahlberg, responsible for research and development at Termisk Systemteknik AB will give a lecture on spectral imaging.

Patrik Jonsson - Combitech

Surface condition imaging using spectral analysis and computer models

Patrik Jonsson from Combitech presents a completely new measurement technique that can determine whether a road is wet, dry, icy or covered with snow with the purpose to make de-icing more efficient.

Benny Thörnberg - Forskar Grand Prix

Elektroniska ögon varnar för istid

In just 4 minutes Benny presents his research on a system that can be trained to recognize and differentiate between wet, dry, snowy or icy road. With this contribution he won Forskar Grand Prix in Sundsvall and became 3rd best in the Sweden finale.
