Electronic Systems

The Department of Electronic Systems conducts re- search, provides teaching and disseminates knowledge within electronics and ICT (Information and Communica- tion Technology). We engage in research within a wide range of disciplines, our point of departure being how technology can be optimized, adapted to other fields or developed into new products. We work closely with industry, meaning that many of our projects are based on ideas and visions from our industrial partners.

Potential areas of collaboration

Collaborating with us will give companies and organizations access to the latest research and our many competences within electronics and ICT. The research is organized in nine sections:


  • Our work within this section focuses on sound and hearing in a broad sense, e.g. in relation to the sound recording, reproduction and processing and also the measurement and quantification of sound, including how it affects us and our ears in different ways.

Antennas, Propagation and Radio Networking (APNet)

  • This section conducts research on antennas, propagation transceiver solutions and networking concepts within emerging radio communication systems.

Automation and Control

  • Our work within this section focuses on mathematical and computational techniques for the modelling, estimation, monitoring and control of systems and processes.

CTIF Section

  • This section conducts research on the convergence of networks, technologies, services and applications.

Multimedia Information and Signal Processing (MISP)

  • This section conducts research and teaching in multimedia technologies, primarily sounds, speech, language, video, images and the sciences that support them. The section also focuses on design and evaluation of multimodal user interfaces.

Navigation and Communications (NavCom)

  • This section conducts research in algorithm design for wireless communication systems, satellite and terrestrial radio positioning, tracking and navigation, and signal processing for radar.

Networking and Security (NetSec)

  • Our work within this section focuses on wired and wireless network technologies, future Internet, IP networks, reliable and secure communication and network planning.

Radio Access Technology (RATE)

  • This section conducts research in cutting-edge technologies for wireless networks, including cross-layer optimizations to improve system spectral efficiency and end user performance.

Technology Platforms (TPS)

  • Our work within this section focuses on advanced signal processing platforms for the handling of physical signals, compressive sensing, RF circuit and system design, hardware/software co-design, design methodologies for low power consumption and scientific computing.
