This course is designed for anyone interested in learning how to develop robotic tools. It will be most beneficial for those who have some theoretical knowledge of robotics and want to gain more hands-on experience.
ROS (Robot Operating System) is a common set of tools used in academia to do research within autonomous systems. It shortly provides a middleware for handling communication, as well as interfacing sensors and actuators, visualization, simulation and datalogging and infrastructure where it is easy to share your own methods and algorithms. The latter has allowed a large set of different of state-of-the-art research approaches to be readily available for downloading. Due to its popularity it is also getting more widespread in the industrial community, especially in R&D. This course will give you hands-on experience how to utilize these tools and apply them to a problem of your choice.
The promise of intelligent robot systems is that they can accomplish more tasks, more efficiently than a single-purpose industrial robotic solution. Intelligent robots act competently because they can plan, sequence and enact the actions that are appropriate in the context in which they find themselves. In order to achieve this capability, intelligent robots use Artificial Intelligence (AI) Search Methods. These are general-purpose algorithms for solving combinatorial problems, in other words, they constitute a robot's "reasoning engine". This course introduces students to the most important types of AI search methods. These are then instantiated in three industrially-relevant application contexts, namely, resource scheduling, motion planning, and multi-robot coordination.

Kursen vänder sig till dig som arbetar inom, eller är intresserad av att förstå tekniskt ledarskap inom industrin och inte har tidigare erfarenhet av att ha ett uppdrag som innebär ledning av andra individer. Du kan vara ny i din roll som arbetslagsledare eller liknande och hanterar gruppnivåer utan personalansvar eller önskar få grundläggande kunskaper som stöttar dig på väg in i ett sådant uppdrag.Då förändringstakten ökar ställer detta krav på ökad flexibilitet och förståelse för hur produktionsprocesser och beslut går till. För att medarbetare och ledare ska kunna utveckla sitt ledarskap för att klara hantera en fullt integrerat miljö med djup förståelse i teknik och förståelse för medarbetare och ekonomi i ett företag, krävs förståelse för individ och grupp samspelar. Kursen är utformad för att kunna få arbeta med problemställningar som finns på arbetsplatsen utifrån ett tekniskt ledarskapsperspektiv där du får diskutera, presentera och beskriva dina förslag till lösningar i ett sammanhang som bygger på vetenskaplig grund som kan användas inom praktiken i industrin.
Efter avslutad kurs kan du utförligt redogöra för och diskutera viktiga begrepp, ansatser och ledarstilar inom tekniskt ledarskap för industrin i omställning,presentera och kritiskt diskutera ett praktiskt fall inom området tekniskt ledarskap för industri i förändring och förstå vikten av hastigheten i genomförandet och vikten av att beakta en föränderlig omvärld,diskutera ledarskapets betydelse och ansvar i relation till etiska aspekter av teknikutveckling, hållbarhetsaspekter av teknisk utveckling och jämställdhetsaspekter i tekniska organisationer/grupper.

In this course, participants are introduced to key notions and concepts evolving in sustainability science that are relevant to all, independent to one's work or field of interest. After having completed the course, participants will have a better understanding of the vocabulary used today and should demonstrate the ability to reflect critically to integrate different perspectives of environmental, social, and economic sustainability to their specific area of interest or research.
Throughout the course, links are made to the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, as our current global road map towards sustainability, and how new approaches and solutions are emerging to describe, understand and address key sustainability challenges. Put simply, the overall aim is to give participants the knowledge and confidence needed to present and discuss ideas with others by applying methods, concepts and the vocabulary exemplified in the course with a more holistic view on the sustainability agenda across topics and disciplines.
The course is designed as 5 modules:
The first module presents essential concepts within sustainability science, and methods used to describe, frame, and communicate aspects of sustainability. We look at key questions such as what we mean with strong or weak sustainability, resilience, tipping points and the notion of planetary boundaries. We also look at some techniques used of envisioning alternative futures and transitions pathways.
The second module is all about systems thinking and how systemic approaches are applied today to achieve long-term sustainability goals. Your will see what we mean with systems thinking and how systems thinking, and design is applied in practice to find new solutions.
The third module touches upon drivers for a sustainable future, namely links to economy and business with an introduction to notions of a circular economy, and also policy and regulatory frameworks. We introduce the basics of transformative policy frames and how they are designed and applied through several real-case examples.
The fourth module discusses the links between innovation and sustainability, highlighting approaches for technological, social, institutional, and financial innovations. Some examples (or cases) aim to show how different actors across society balance in practice the need for innovative approaches for social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
The fifth and last module provides general insights on how we work with models to create various scenarios that help us identify solutions and pathways for a more sustainable world. Three main dimensions are addressed namely climate and climate change, nature and biodiversity, and the importance of data and geodata science to support spatial planning and sustainable land use.
How can we work with nature to design and build our cities?
This course explores urban nature and nature-based solutions in cities in Europe and around the world. We connect together the key themes of cities, nature, sustainability and innovation. We discuss how to assess what nature-based solutions can achieve in cities. We examine how innovation is taking place in cities in relation to nature. And we analyse the potential of nature-based solutions to help respond to climate change and sustainability challenges.
This course was launched in January 2020, and it was updated in September 2021 with new podcasts, films and publications. The course is produced by Lund University in cooperation with partners from Naturvation – a collaborative project on finding synergies between cities, nature, sustainability and innovation. The course features researchers, practitioners and entrepreneurs from a range organisations.
How can we shape our urban development towards sustainable and prosperous futures?
This course explores sustainable cities as engines for greening the economy in Europe and around the world. We place cities in the context of sustainable urban transformation and climate change. We connect the key trends of urbanization, decarbonisation and sustainability. We examine how visions, experiments and innovations can transform urban areas. And we look at practices (what is happening in cities at present) and opportunities (what are the possibilities for cities going forwards into the future).
This course was launched in January 2016, and it was updated in September 2021 with new podcasts, films and publications. The course is produced by Lund University in cooperation with WWF and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability who work with creating sustainable cities.
