Business - Innovations - Technology (BIT of WUT)

We are proud to present the intellectual potential of WUT’s students, graduates and employees in the new folder entitled “Business - Innovations – Technology”

Warsaw University of Technology has researchers working on a range of scientific topics which are explored in different areas and on different scale. Often the outcome of these helps with development of new technologies or everyday products to come into being.

Here we would like to present the diversity of topics which are of interest to WUT’s researchers.

An ordinary watch with a Unique strap

Unique – could there be a better name for this special invention? I guess no. It is certain on the other hand that students who graduated at WUT have designed a smartwatch strap and their innovative invention is getting many awards. Will it conquer the market? We have to wait and see. The watch is getting smart.

Bioimplant will make a bone like new


Production of bioimplants „fit to measure” which support regeneration and reconstruction of human and animal bone loss is the aim of a group of scientists from WUT’s Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering under the leadership of Prof. Wojciech Święszkowski PhD.

WUT is promoting the development of Local Government Units

How do Polish cities and districts develop? For over a decade, the scientists from the Faculty of Administration and Social Sciences, the authors of 'Ranking of Sustainable Development of Local Governments' have been trying to answer this question.

PW-SAT2. Another satellite from WUT

Since 1957 humanity has sent over 6,000 objects into Earth's orbit. Moreover, it is estimated that there are about 3,600 satellites in orbit, although only around a third of them are operational. Until now approximately 25,000 objects of a diameter larger than 5 cm have been catalogued. The estimated number of pieces of debris smaller than 1 cm reaches 300,000. These numbers cover rocket bodies, inoperative satellites and many different objects which may originate from satellite collisions. This is called space debris or space junk, and may sometimes be a menace to the International Space Station or other satellite systems. It is worth remembering that, despite their small size, they move with velocities reaching 36,000 km/h and may cause damage worth billions of dollars.

Crime scene scanner

A scanner which creates a 3D visualization of crime scenes is being designed at WUT’s Faculty of Mechatronics. Is Polish criminology going to go through a technological revolution?

How to convert electrical energy with a little power losses? Researchers at the Department of Industrial Electronics Warsaw University of Technology are working on use for this purpose transistors made from wide band gap semiconductors - silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN).

SMART type remote control and supervision system

The team from WUT’s Institute of Electrical Power Engineering has obtained permission from PSE S.A to use the new SMART remote control system for the automation devices operating in power-system substations. The creators of this link are: Mr. Ryszard Kowalik PhD, Mr. Marcin Januszewski PhD and Mr. Emil Bartosiewicz – the employees of the Department of Electrical Power Engineering Equipment and Automation.

Innovative fluid for bulletproof vests

A team from WUT’s Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering under supervision of Prof. Marcin Leonowicz, together with the Military Institute of Armament Technology and the Institute of Security Technologies MORATEX in Łódź has been working on this invention as part of the Innovative Economy Programme –    “Smart passive body armour with application of rheological fluids with nano structures”  (SmartArmour) project.

The analysis and control of disparity for the realistic stereo visualisation

Prof. Przemysław Rokita and his PhD student Łukasz Dąbała from the Computer Graphics Department at the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology, together with his colleagues from the Max Planck Institute and MIT,  worked on new methods of generating high quality stereoscopic images using original method of analysis and control of the disparity. This project was carried in the years 2012-2014.

PIKAOM new technologies in modern pathomorphological diagnosis

The team of associate professor Tomasz Markiewicz (Ph.D. D.Sc.) from WUT's Faculty of Electrical Engineering is working in a consortium together with the Military Institute of Medicine and the Nałęcz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences on the project entitled Web platform of the computerized microscopic image analysis for support the modern pathomorphological diagnosis.

Solutions for the Power Industry

Under the projects "4RES" and "ElGrid" carried out by Globema Ltd. in cooperation with the Institute of Electrical Power Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology, the staff of the Electrical Power Networks and Systems Division has developed innovative methods of calculation, optimization and forecasting.

House made out of earth by the scientists from the Faculty of Architecture

On 7th December 2012, in the Eco-Park in Pasłęk there was a grand ceremony of putting into use a research building made of earth. The authors of the project are employed at WUT’s Faculty of Architecture. These are Prof. Teresa Kelm, Mr. Jerzy Górski PhD and Mr. Marek Kołłątaj.

Supercar - a compromise between esthetics and aerodynamics


The Warsaw University of Technology has its contribution to the building of the first Polish supercar - Arrinera Hussarya. Team under the leadership of Prof. Janusz Piechna (Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering) took part in the aerodynamics tests and has been working on active systems of vehicle damping (Arrinera Automotive S.A. and the Warsaw University of Technology received 2 634 400 zł funding for this purpose from the National Centre for Research and Development).

Scanner for researching non-destructive composite parts strengthen with carbon fibre

The team of dr inż. Bartłomiej Salski from the Institute of Radioelectronics at the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology has developed a new method of researching indestructible composite parts strengthened with carbon fibre which are widely used for building aircrafts, windmills and other devices which need to be light but of very good quality.

Methodology of risk assessment for the purpose of crisis management systems in the Republic of Poland.

The EU Civil Protection Mechanism calls on all participating member states to implement a national methodology of risk assessment for the purpose of critical infrastructure protection. WUT’s Faculty of Management took part in the preparation of such a document.

SODAR 3D – scanning of the space

The Radiolocation and Digital Signal Processing Students' Research Group at the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology have designed a prototype device made to scan space using ultrasound imaging with a steered beam on a moving platform. It is a step towards creation of an autonomic robot which will be scanning space and creating maps of the surroundings on which it will move.

Changing a Negative into Positive

An opponent runs up. He takes a swing and... he kicks our footballer in his shin as hard as he can. And how does the latter react? He does not feel a thing—that is how specialist pads currently being developed at Warsaw University of Technology are supposed to work.
