How can we better manage all collected data?
Sensors in houses, cars, gadgets – and on humans – generate huge amounts of data every second. In order to process, analyse and react to the results of collected data, the demands on computer performance increases. Part of the solution is a so-called manycore architecture , a hardware architecture that contains several hundred, or even a thousand, processor cores, which improves the capacity of a computer. In a recently published doctoral thesis from Halmstad University, methods and tools are presented that can help both hardware and software developers to design the next generation of computers.

New testing techniques for safer software development
Software product line engineering has become common practice for developing families of software systems. It has been used by many industrial companies such as Boeing, Bosch, General Motors, Philips and Siemens. Since the safety aspect of these systems is of great importance, they have to be efficiently and rigorously tested. Mahsa Varshosaz at Halmstad University has developed a testing technique tailored for product lines and has recently published a thesis on her conclusions.

Say hi to our new website – and the new student web
Today Halmstad University launches its new website and a brand new student web.
