Smart subsystems in service to process and condition monitoring (SMARTSUBSYSTEMS_ICON)
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.
Monitoring under varying operating conditions (MONICO_ICON)
There is an industrial need for a monitoring methodology which will provide robust monitoring capabilities independent of the operating conditions.
Active 3D Reconstruction (Active3D_ICON)
We will develop the methodology to optimally choose and configure combinations of different sensors.
Vision in the Loop for high spatial / temporal resolution process monitoring and control (VIL_ICON)
The goal of this project is to realize a vision-based machine control platform.
Fibre optics sensing for industry 4.0 monitoring applications (FOS4I4_ICON)
Fibre optic sensing (FOS) technology allows making measurements with a single sensor technology.
Optical beam-shaping for high productivity/quality laser aided manufacturing (BEAMSHAPE_ICON)
Beam shaping would enable to tailor the beam to the particular needs of the envisaged production process.
Intelligent Follow me (iFollow_ICON)
There is an increasing interest in autonomous capabilities for mobile systems that aren’t bound predefined tracks.
Selection & design of torque ripple reduction concepts for drivetrains (Torque Ripple Reduction_ICON)
Companies that design and manufacture drivetrains need more performant and cost-effective solutions for torque ripple reduction.
Context Aware Control (ConACon_ICON)
The project will deliver tools for automated context identification and deployment of context aware controllers.
Value driven Concept design for product-manufacturing co-design of mechatronic product families (VaDoFam)
We are looking to create formal methods and tools to support value engineering processes.
Product Family Design of Fixed Topology Mechatronic Systems (ProFaDes)
It will help identifying platform opportunities within existing product families and optimizing the different variants that are required.
Impact Assessment of product changes on the assembly (ImpAss)
The goal is to support design and process engineers in assessing the impact of a new product variant on the existing assembly line.
Designer Centric Computational Design Synthesis (DC-CDS)
We will extend the existing CDS tooling by allowing to deal with uncertainty and by improving result visualisation.
The TeTra project "ReDeJoin"
The goal is to support manufacturing companies with the repair or recycling of their multi-material products.
The TETRA project "PRU Code Generation"
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.
Multi-System Learning Control (MultiSysLeCo)
We want to have optimal performance under all conditions and not end up with controllers that often yield poor system performance.
Product-Assembly Co-Design (PACO)
Considering assembly aspects too late or in a trial-and-error way is no longer an option.
Rigorous approach for programming and optimal control of multi-robot systems (MULTIROB)
A key technological barrier impeding their widespread use is the difficulty to deploy complex multi-robot systems in real-life industrial environments.
