Midsummer fest in Ålesund, Norway, 2014

St. Hansfeiring i Ålesund. Midsummer fest in Ålesund. It is a huge celebration. After a rainy day, it was a great night when it clears up. Many people joined and stayed up until late enjoying the fire of the longest summer evening. A huge pile of recycled pallets burned down and lighted up the long night.

PHOTOS from the 28th European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS), Brescia, Italy, 2014

Finally I found some time to publish all the photos I shoot at the 28th European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS), Brescia, Italy, 2014. I think that the conference was quite successful and the delegation from Aalesund University College had the chance of meeting new colleagues and possible partners to build potential cooperations for the future.

VIDEO: amazing Solar Flares, observed on June 10, 2014

The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:42 a.m. EDT on June 10, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory - which typically observes the entire sun 24 hours a day -- captured images of the flare. This flare is classified as an X2.2 flare. X-class denotes the most intense flares, while the number provides more information about its strength. An X2 is twice as intense as an X1, an X3 is three times as intense, etc. About one hour later, the sun released a second X-class flare, peakin

Modular robotic hand with vision object recognition capability

The main idea of this project consists of developing a modular robotic hand. A camera is embedded in the hand palm. This will allow for a stereo vision distance estimation of the object to grasp using only one camera. The idea consists in taking two pictures from different point of view by moving the arm where the hand will be placed. The two photos are then used to create a stereo image in order to estimate the distance from the object to grasp.
