Integrated design of multi-drivetrain systems
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...
MACHINE SETTINGS OPTIMIZATION THROUGH MODEL-BASED DATA ANALYTICS
Similar machines operating in similar conditions have different performance and machines generate very large amounts of data that are difficult to summarize.
MULTI-SENSOR SYSTEM DESIGN AND VALIDATION
This project addresses the needs of machine, vehicle and component builders, monitoring system manufacturers, and software engineering tools developers.
FASTER MACHINE FAULT DIAGNOSIS AND REPAIR THROUGH AUGMENTED REALITY
The shortage of skilled service technicians is a major bottleneck for the Flemish industry.
Automated creation of digital assembly instructions by operator driven knowledge
The central role of the human operator renders complete, clear and correct assembly instructions a crucial tool to achieve high quality standards.
CONTEXT AWARE CONTROL (CONACON)
Currently controllers are tuned conservatively, so that the performance is acceptable in all circumstances but it is never optimal.
Control with active 3D imaging systems (controlpoint)
This project targets mobile system and component builders, and monitoring platform developers.
Avoidance of collisions and objects on narrow lanes (AV-CON)
This project addresses the needs of OEMs to design a safe and efficient multiple obstacle avoidance system suitable for operation in diverse environments.
Optimal design of multi-material structures
This project addresses companies that need to develop multi-material solutions in order to optimize their product for a variety of attributes at a reasonable cost.
