A long week of demonstrating some of the different AI project we carry out with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration is done.
It has been a long week and would not have been a sucess with the help of some of our clever students. A big thanks to Christian Skjetne, who managed this with a steady hand. He was there all week, explaining to the public, Norwegian TV2 and the Minister of Transport and Communications.
The stand included a demonstration of platooning, using our ChIRP robots.

It also included the intelligent traffic lights, and a possibility for people to drive a lorry using the Oculus 3D headset

Finally, the Minister of Transport and Communications, Ketil Solvik-Olsen visited the stand and received an introduction to the use of autonomus robots in intelligent transportation systems.

On the 14th of March the STARTntnu held the Kreator exhibition at Realfagsbygget. The goal of the exhibition is to inspire students and other visitors to create and explore new ideas. The GEMINI center was invited to participate with their “intelligent traffic lights”.
Today, Ole Johan Andersen, presented his master project for the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.
Friday September 28. NTNU arranged Researchers’ Night 2012, an event gathering more than 1000 prospective NTNU students from Trondheim and surrounding area. The Intelligent Systems group from IDI was of course present, demonstrating a project on Swarm robotics and an intelligent traffic light. Information about the projects and images from the event follow.
National newspaper VG writes about intelligent devices in traffic.
Among other things, the article discusses the project on intelligent traffic lights, that is developed by Anders Kofod-Petersen and colleagues. Link: http://www.vg.no/bil-og-motor/artikkel.php?artid=10059342
