More devices, more data – and critical research problems

The ultra-fast 5G network will be taken into use in Finland in 2020. Professor Evgeny Kucheryavy and his research group are developing technologies that pave the way for new, reliable and effective 5G services.

The eventual full-scale deployment of 5G is expected to usher in a digital revolution that equals or even surpasses the arrival of smartphones a decade ago.

“Smartphones brought wireless communication into the palm of our hands, whereas 5G will bring it everywhere. The main change is that 5G will create a seamless fabric of connectivity. The 5th generation network is part of the fourth industrial revolution that will bring forth automated and optimised production and logistics,” says Professor Evgeny Kucheryavy.

Open a door to assist in the development of smart homes

For smart homes to become more widespread, they need to be easy to use, safe and genuinely useful. Everyone walking around campus has the opportunity to participate in a project that combines architecture, civil engineering, automation, information technology and signal processing and offers new insights into the simple act of opening the door to our home. The data is used to develop smart homes and later perhaps even smart cities.

“We’re aiming to collect extensive visual information of people entering and exiting through the door to support the development of autonomous control solutions that employ machine learning,” says Harry Edelman from the Laboratory of Civil Engineering.

Pure entertainment and critical safety

Immersive experiences are becoming everyday reality at CIVIT, the Centre for Immersive Visual Technologies. The centre has recently moved to new state-of-the-art facilities that bring together a flexible infrastructure and research expertise that covers all the areas of immersive technologies.

Immersive technology can be summed up in two words: realism and interaction. Besides developing immersive technologies, we’re looking to understand their relation with human behaviour and perception,” describes Professor Atanas Gotchev of Tampere University of Technology (TUT).

New ultrafast measurement technique shows how lasers start from chaos

How do laser pulses emerge? A recent research paper co-authored by photonics researchers from TUT and published in Nature Photonics demonstrates how laser pulses emerge from noise as if out of nowhere and display complex collapse and oscillation dynamics before settling down to stable operation.

Tenure track promotes organizational commitment

Physicist Esa Räsänen was appointed to a professorship in the Department of Physics in September 2014. He is the first person put on TUT’s tenure track who has been promoted to the rank of Full Professor, the highest rung on the academic ladder.

“My tenure track appointment gave me the freedom to pursue a long-term research agenda. The system increases motivation and engagement among faculty members and increases organizational commitment,” he says.
