Philips Research Eindhoven is located on the High Tech Campus (HTC) Eindhoven, which is the center for technology enabled innovation in The Netherlands. It is an open campus, targeted at fostering open cooperation between different companies and institutes. Over 8000 researchers, developers, and entrepreneurs work closely together at the HTC, developing the technologies and products of tomorrow.
Activities at this location?
Philips Research Eindhoven works for all innovation areas in the three Philips market sectors of Healthcare, Lighting, and Consumer Lifestyle. They combine research activities with "first of a kind" product development based on our advanced engineering competencies. Their way of working is strongly multidisciplinary, both in terms of technical scientific disciplines and in terms of applications.
They cover a broad range of disciplines. From physics, chemistry, electronics, mechatronics, embedded software, signal processing, and computer science into cross-disciplinary fields like biomedical engineering, microbiology, biophysics, and systems design all the way to psychology, perception, and behavioral sciences.
Most important research topics?
Within Healthcare, the focus is on diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive image guided intervention, patient care, and clinical decision support, and home and personal healthcare. In Lifestyle, they are investigating technologies and solutions that stimulate a healthy life, offering optimized personal care, and exploring ways to enhance a fulfilling home and interactive lifestyle.
In Lighting, they are investigating a variety of key technologies for solid state lighting, embedded lighting solutions, lighting systems, and the effects of light on health and wellbeing.
One of the unique research facilities developed by Philips Research is the ExperienceLab at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, where a natural setting is provided in which proposed new technologies and applications can actually be tested and experienced.
In the ExperienceLab, multi-disciplinary teams including psychologists, sociologist and designers can observe people and monitor their behavior and interactions with the innovative concepts. ExperienceLab provides an ideal environment in which user-centered research can be performed.
HMI has active contact with this institute, perhaps new/other assignments can be created for you.
