The automation of manufacturing and production processes on the one hand, and of technical processes on the other, is key to successful competitive positioning. Through these processes, major advancements can be made in the functionality, security, and energy efficiency of products and facilities. Modern automation technology is characterised by a multidisciplinary approach with research groups coming from many different academic disciplines. A distinction can be made between common methodologies (applied mathematics, model building, simulation technology, regulation theory, informatics, communications technology) and applied disciplines with specific orientations for each individual case (sensors, actuators including power transmission, (power) electronics, robotics, computer hardware, software tools). The researchers in the Intelligent Systems/Automation group develop comprehensive solution packages for industry through interdisciplinary collaboration, and also support knowledge transfer between industry and academy.

The Intelligent Systems/Automation group is made up of the following competence areas:

  • Automation
  • Autonomous systems
  • Intelligent sensors

 

Within the area of intelligent sensors, particular areas of competence include:

  • Electronic components and sensors
  • High-frequency technology and EMC
  • Information technology, digital signal and image processing, mathematical methods for signal processing
  • Design of integrated circuits
  • Pattern recognition and computational intelligence
