I am especially thankful to Professor Webjørn Rekdalsbakken, Department of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Aalesund University College. He gave me the chance to teach Real time computer programming together with Girts Strazdins and with Ivar Blindheim. I really enjoyed this experience. During the last year course in Real Time Systems, our students focused on several challenges that currently affect the filed of maritime applications and related industry. In the following, an overview of the
Today, I got some good news, another paper has been accepted for publication in the Proc. of the 2015 IEEE International Conference on Industrial Technology (ICIT 2015) to be held in Seville, Spain, March 17-19, 2015. The selected article is: Filippo Sanfilippo, Houxiang Zhang, Kristin Ytterstad Pettersen, "The New Architecture of ModGrasp for Mind-Controlled Low-Cost Sensorised Modular Hands". I am very happy for the result especially because as I know the ICIT committee has received a record n
This week is a special one. It is the coding and programming week arranged over large parts of the world, a project which involves little students and people of all ages getting a complete insight into programming. Aalesund University College has been involved in this fantastic project and thanks to my colleague, Kjell Inge Tomren, I also had the chance to give my contribution to the event. Programming is fun, and teaching programming to little students is even more exciting!

Rosetta is the first mission ever to rendezvous with, escort and land on a comet. A mission that began as a dream, but that after decades of planning, construction and flight through the Solar System, has arrived at its goal.
Day 5 - Black & White photo challenge. I was nominated by Anniken Karlsen and now I nominate Gianmarco Scarcella to post a black & white photo for 5 days and nominate a person each day to do the same - just for fun! This is my fifth photo. It was taken on August 9, 2014 in Lomé, Togo. I just had a transit flight on my way to Brazil. At that time, the most severe in history Ebola outbreak was just starting in this area of Africa. This photo highlights the very simple and ineffective prev
Day 4 - Black & White photo challenge. I was nominated by Anniken Karlsen and now I nominate Tommy Hongyang Yu to post a black & white photo for 5 days and nominate a person each day to do the same - just for fun! This is my fourth photo, I took this shoot last summer in Hailar, Inner Mongolia. This shoot was taken at the Mongolian Yurt Reception organised for the IEEE International Conference on Information and Automation (ICIA2014).
When I started my PhD studies at Aalesund University College, I gave my contribution to the setting up of the Mechatronics Lab. One major contribution consisted in developing the website for the newly constituted Mechatronics Laboratory. This work has been done as extra in my spare time. The website is based Joomla. Joomla is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be us
Day 3 - Black & White photo challenge. I was nominated by Anniken Karlsen and now I nominate Geir Bjørndal Srisoi to post a black & white photo for 5 days and nominate a person each day to do the same - just for fun! This is my third photo, I took this shoot last summer in São Paulo, Brazil. With this photo I wanted to highlight the huge gap between rich and poor in Brazil. São Paulo is seen as the economic centre of Brazil, containing the headquarters of most companies. In this city
