Research Group

Hoofdorganisatie:Flanders Make

Mass production is giving way to customised production.

Production environments must be able to produce in a highly modular fashion,at the lowest possible operational cost and without any machine downtime.

Customers expect zero-defect products and total flexibility. Moreover, systems are becoming increasingly autonomous. Examples include fruit-picking robots,autonomous vehicles in logistics, unmanned patrol boats, and many others.

Sensors play a major role in these areas. However, it doesn’t end with measuring. Data must be interpreted and applied in robust, self-learning measuring and knowledge instruments to improve mechatronic systems. Artificial intelligence plays a major role in these areas. This is the only way in which we will be able to develop intelligent products and highly effective production environments – smart products and smart factories that are characteristic of Industry 4.0 – necessary to remain competitive in Flanders.
