Go back to the beginning

TalTech wishes you a
bright and innovative

new year!


We will be the first in Estonia to test the next generation 5G data network, which will be used by companies and research institutions for research and innovation in the future. Researchers are currently working on a solution to use drones connected to the 5G network in emergencies or disasters.


Virtuality helps people get back to real life. At East Tallinn Central Hospital, people suffering from serious illnesses are reintegrating into an everyday rhythm through virtual reality. For example, a virtual supermarket can evaluate patients' recovery as well as help them practice in-store shopping.

Smart City

The smart city has an ambitious goal in mind: to become a technological center of excellence, addressing issues such as 5G, the internet of things, e-government, cybersecurity, and many more. Scientists and entrepreneurs are welcome to develop and test their technologies on campus. Today, the smart digital campus is home to TalTech's smart transport program, which explores how to make the urban environment more enjoyable.

Data collection in
extreme conditions

Nature-inspired robots can assist scientists in various fields. For example, with the help of underwater robots, underwater archaeologists are learning more about the seabed. Moreover, sensors developed for extreme conditions can keep an eye on rivers, glaciers, waterfalls, and hydroelectric power stations.

Smart elevator

Soon you won't have to push any buttons in the elevator. The smart lift learns biometric and usage data about each passenger and, after a few rides, can take the person to the right floor. It offers new experiences like lower waiting times and greater comfort for the visually impaired and the disabled.

The Autonomous Ship NYMO

NYMO is an autonomous robotic boat that offers platform testing, oil spill detection, marine exploration and more. It has a load capacity of 100 kilograms and has a maximum speed of 9 kilometers per hour.

The student satellite Koit ("Dawn")

Was launched into orbit this summer to undertake an important task: to test a fail-safe system that can continue to function in space despite computing errors caused by radiation. In addition, the satellite will test high-frequency communications, take detailed images from Earth and observe the growth of vegetation. In March, the satellite Hämarik ("Twilight") will also be launched.


Meet the future! Smart road pavement is the first solar-powered road surface in the Nordic countries. The ICT solutions, integrated into pavement, make the road an active traffic participant. It supports safer and smoother traffic with a smaller ecological footprint
