The Norwegian Public Roads Administration plans to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions from road construction projects with the aid of a new database developed by a research project at the University of Agder.
The Mechatronics Centre and WISENET Centre at UiA have joined forces in a new multidisciplinary frontier research project that combines Robotics and Explainable Artificial Intelligence. They have received NOK 16 million from the Research Council of Norway to develop robots that can learn and cooperate both between themselves and with human operators in industrial environments.
"The combination of the young University of Agder and the more traditional University of Oslo and Institute of Marine Research is very potent," Professor Nils Chr. Stenseth says. He is the chairman of CCR – Centre for Coastal Research, which on Wednesday becomes a priority research centre.
