VTT and Finland Post Corporation develop intelligent logistics

03.05.2006


Partners to strengthen co-operation



VTT and Finland Post Corporation have strengthened their co-operation in research and development. The new co-operation agreement allows Finland Post Corporation to utilise VTT’s versatile knowledge of intelligent logistics in technology projects. The first joint projects relate to RFID (Radio frequency identification) and automation technologies.

Finland Post Corporation is a service company that specialises in intelligent logistics and invests actively in new technologies. The Technology Centre of Finland Post Corporation co-ordinates technical development projects and focuses on the new business opportunities that the near future has to offer.


Networking with research partners such as VTT allows Finland Post Corporation to create technologies for the future. Finland Post Corporation is interested in the new opportunities of both production technology and electronic communications.

VTT turns technology into business operations. VTT offers Finland Post Corporation internationally acknowledged expertise in various fields, including information and communications technology and innovation management.

The opportunities provided by future technologies combined with a knowledge of changes in the market serve as an excellent starting point for the development of new business. VTT finds it natural to co-operate with Finland Post Corporation, as the company is a leader in the development of logistics as a user of its technologies.

The partners already have tangible results of their co-operation in fields such as RFID technology, the automation of distribution and usability.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
