When the current electronics technology cannot meet the rapidly expanding needs of data communication, light comes to the rescue. A research group at TUT is developing light-based technologies and enabling applications that, until now, have been little more than dreams.
If wires and batteries are out of the question, energy can be harvested from mechanical vibrations, movement, friction and heat. A growing number of devices are harvesting energy from ambient sources. As the Internet of Things develops further, the number of potential energy harvesting applications will grow exponentially.
‘Clean Energy from the Environment with Energy Harvesting’ project explores different energy-harvesting applications and seeks solutions with commercial potential.
Tampere University of Technology, the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Applied Sciences have joined forces to develop a new model of operation for higher education in Finland. They are working to establish a new higher education institution that will start its operations in the beginning of 2019.

Cardiac arrhythmias count among the leading causes of death worldwide. In addition to genetic susceptibility, the risk of developing an irregular heartbeat increases, among others, with high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol, and stress. Arrhythmias often occur randomly at first. An international team of researchers from Tampere University of Technology, Qatar University and Izmir University of Economics has pioneered a new method for detecting the first signs of arrhythmias.
