I must admit that for me, as a layman, the most important thing about a scientific research project is the end result.
Researchers from the Gdańsk University of Technology have teamed up with engineers from the Opegieka company based in the northern city of Elbl±g to develop a mobile geographic information system designed to help Poland’s 100,000 blind people—enabling them to move around on their own, especially in an urban environment they are not familiar with.
According to official calculations, there are about 100,000 blind people in Poland. The number of visually impaired people, who may also be interested in the project, is difficult to estimate.
The IT system designed to assist blind people in moving around is made up of the following components:
Polish university researchers in the central city of ŁódĽ have teamed up with a private company to develop new graphene-based materials that could used for storing hydrogen. The project, billed as ground-breaking and innovative internationally, includes the construction of a production line for the manufacture of such materials. If the project ends in success, it will benefit the automotive and aerospace industries, the researchers say.
Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, head of the Experimental Biophysics and Optical Biomedical Imaging Teams, and winner of a major award from the Foundation for Polish Science in 2012, talks to Karolina Olszewska.
A new type of internal combustion engine without a crankshaft invented by a Polish engineer may soon make waves in the international automotive industry.
Prof. Tadeusz Juliszewski, director of the Institute of Machinery Management, Ergonomics and Production Processes at the Faculty of Production and Power Engineering at the Cracow University of Agriculture, talks to Karolina Olszewska.
Bio-Hydrogen, a Polish-designed device for the production of pollution-free electricity from fossil fuel and biofuel, won a gold medal at the Brussels Innova international exhibition for innovations, research and new technology last year.
Scientists at the Gdańsk University of Technology have created a computer-generated portrait of Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, the 17th-century Polish-born Dutch physicist best known for developing a temperature scale now named after him.
