Chalmers’ research contributes to knowledge and technological innovation designed to attain higher productivity, improved resource efficiency and safe and ergonomic working conditions, for example within the research into production systems, human-machine interaction, logistics and urban planning.
Complex work environments demand a great deal of employees’ cognitive ability to take information on board and make the right decisions. Researchers in the Department of Industrial and Materials Science are studying how cognitive and physical aspects of industrial assembly work interact
and they are developing a model designed to prevent strain injuries.
The Production Area of Advance
brings together researchers from several departments because a wide range of knowledge is required to solve the problems of tomorrow.
Chalmers researchers are working on a large number of projects that aim to convert scientific breakthroughs into innovative products and services, which will in turn create job opportunities and growth.
