This project offers an approach to embed local intelligence to components to monitor their health and performance as well as their interaction with other components.
There is an industrial need for a monitoring methodology which will provide robust monitoring capabilities independent of the operating conditions.
We will develop the methodology to optimally choose and configure combinations of different sensors.
The goal of this project is to realize a vision-based machine control platform.
Fibre optic sensing (FOS) technology allows making measurements with a single sensor technology.
Beam shaping would enable to tailor the beam to the particular needs of the envisaged production process.
There is an increasing interest in autonomous capabilities for mobile systems that aren’t bound predefined tracks.
Companies that design and manufacture drivetrains need more performant and cost-effective solutions for torque ripple reduction.
The project will deliver tools for automated context identification and deployment of context aware controllers.
We are looking to create formal methods and tools to support value engineering processes.
It will help identifying platform opportunities within existing product families and optimizing the different variants that are required.
The goal is to support design and process engineers in assessing the impact of a new product variant on the existing assembly line.
We will extend the existing CDS tooling by allowing to deal with uncertainty and by improving result visualisation.
The goal is to support manufacturing companies with the repair or recycling of their multi-material products.
The goal is to develop methods that lower the cost and time-to-market and increase the quality of data acquisition for Industry 4.0 applications.
We want to have optimal performance under all conditions and not end up with controllers that often yield poor system performance.
Considering assembly aspects too late or in a trial-and-error way is no longer an option.
A key technological barrier impeding their widespread use is the difficulty to deploy complex multi-robot systems in real-life industrial environments.
Companies that make products whereby the operators perform physically demanding work – handling or moving heavy or bulky items – are looking for...
In this project, we focus on the modular design of gantry-type production systems for high-precision features on large products, for companies that...
For companies that design and manufacture drivetrains and related components, torque ripple is a critical element in the design, the integration and...
In this project, we work on instruments for the optimal design of complex products that have a large number of drivetrains – such as looms or 4WD...
The shortage of skilled service technicians is a major bottleneck for the Flemish industry.
