26 Jan 2015 - UT develops wireless sensor system for bridges and tunnels
Researchers at the UT CTIT research institute have developed a prototype of a wireless sensor network system that makes it possible to monitor the condition of structures such as bridges, tunnels and buildings. The method saves time and money compared to traditional methods. The wireless communication aspect of the system was developed by Zahra Taghikhaki who will be awarded a doctorate for her research on 28 January. Development of a system prototype. A Swiss company tested the system during the construction of a new bridge, and has plans to market it.

22 Jan 2015 - Massive chip design savings to be realized
IT researchers working at the University of Twente have developed a programming language making the massive costs associated with designing hardware more manageable. Chip manufacturers have been using the same chip design techniques for twenty years now. The current process calls for extensive testing after each design step - a massively expensive state of affairs. The newly developed, so-called functional programming language makes it possible to prove, in advance, that a design transformation is a hundred per cent error-free.
