  1. 1. Lean Remanufacturing : Reducing Process Lead Time

    Author : Jelena Kurilova-Palisaitiene; Erik Sundin; Bozena Poksińska; Mats Björkman; Martin Kurdve; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Circular Economy; Lean Production; Toyota Production System; Value Stream Mapping; Remanufacturing Process Challenges and Improvements; Process Efficiency;

    Abstract : Remanufacturing is a product recovery option in which used products are brought back into useful life. While the remanufacturing industry stretches from heavy machinery to automotive parts, furniture, and IT sectors, it faces challenges. READ MORE

  2. 2. Semantic Mapping in Warehouses

    Author : Saeed Gholami Shahbandi; Björn Åstrand; Roland Philippsen; Antanas Verikas; Martin Magnusson; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Automation; Robotics; Mapping; Semantic Maps; Warehouse Automation;

    Abstract : This thesis and appended papers present the process of tacking the problem of environment modeling for autonomous agent. More specifically, the focus of the work has been semantic mapping of warehouses. A semantic map for such purpose is expected to be layout-like and support semantics of both open spaces and infrastructure of the environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human-Robot Interaction and Mapping with a Service Robot : Human Augmented Mapping

    Author : Elin Anna Topp; Henrik I. Christensen; Benjamin J. Kuipers; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robotics; Human-Robot Interaction; Cognitive modelling; Representation of space; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : An issue widely discussed in robotics research is the ageing society with its consequences for care-giving institutions and opportunities for developments in the area of service robots and robot companions. The general idea of using robotic systems in a personal or private context to support an independent way of living not only for the elderly but also for the physically impaired is pursued in different ways, ranging from socially oriented robotic pets to mobile assistants.

  4. 4. A Browning process : The case of Dar es Salaam city

    Author : Othmar Simtali Mng'ong'o; Lars Orrskog; Kjell Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Social sciences; green plant; green structure; browining process; ecological area; sustainable city; living environment; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The study is about how green spaces and structures of Dar es Salaam city, quantitatively and qualitatively, are browning out. It also tries to explore the different reasons behind the browning tendency, and what it means to the function of the city and to the daily form of life of the inhabitants. READ MORE

    Abstract : The direct variable costs for heat and electricity production based on solid biomass fuel combustion is approximately 3-5 times lower than the costs in a fossil fuel-oil based boiler in Sweden. In addition waste derived biomass fuels are typically much cheaper than biomass not classified as waste. READ MORE
