UMIT Research Lab
UMIT Research Lab is an environment for fundamental research in computational science and engineering. Innovative software tools for simulation and high-performance computing are developed and tested in collaboration with industry partners.
The development of hardware architectures with a multidue of cores, parallel computing, visualization and elastic IT infrastructure is rapid. This brings new possibilities for technical and scientific computing, new software tools and services for handling large amount of data rapidly. UMIT Research Lab focuses on developing new solutions in knowledge in simulation technology that unleashes the new computing powers.
Umeå University, together with three international partners, has been granted over 36 million sek to a major research project on methods and software for future supercomputers.
Eddie Wadbro from UMIT Research Lab / Department of Computing Science is teaming up with Ola Lindroos at SLU and researchers from LTU and Oregon State University to minimize the damage made by forestry vehicles in the terrain using 3D-laser scanning and optimal route planning.
For decades, the fundamental design of microwave devices, such as antennas for mobile communication and waveguides used in radars, has essentially relied on the inventiveness of a professional designer. Computer simulations are usually used only in final design stages to fine-tune details in the des...
Future cars and trucks will be tested in a virtual environment long before the first vehicle prototype is built. UMIT Research Lab at Umeå University plays a key part when the vehicle manufacturers Scania and Volvo Cars and the simulation companies Algoryx Simulation and Modelon join forces to devel...
