Research in Electrical Engineering sometimes generates codes, tables and software that can be of use to fellow researchers and industry. Here we list a selection of these resources.
Software for the prediction of motion intent
BioPatRec is a research platform (in MATLAB) that allows you to easily implement a variety of algorithms for the development and benchmarking of advanced prosthetic control strategies based on pattern recognition of myoelectric signals. BioPatRec allows the prediction of motion intent through the decoding of muscular activity.

Spectre - short packet communication toolbox
Shannon theory describes fundamental limits of communication and
compression systems. Classic closed-form results (such as the well known
log(1 + SNR) formula) apply only to the regime of infinite blocklength
(infinite packet size/ infinite delay).
For finite blocklengths, no
closed-form results are usually obtainable, but there exist tight upper
and lower bounds on fundamental limits, as well as approximations. This
repository provides numerical routines to compute these bounds and these
approximations for some popular channel and source models.

Chalmers wind turbine
Chalmers has its own wind turbine that is placed at Björkö in the archipelago outside Gothenburg. The turbine has been rebuilt many times since it was erected in 1984. Today the turbine has a rated power of 45 kW, hub height of 30 m and is a direct driven wind turbine. The turbine is used for research and education. Some unique things about the wind turbine is that the blades are made completely of carbon fibre and the turbine has a wooden tower.
