The innovation projects
Business and research institutes are working together to create new market-ready products, technologies and applications in a total of 33 innovation projects. In the process, they make use of the new technologies and methods developed in cross-sectional projects. The innovation projects are divided into three categories: subsystems, systems and networked systems.
Subsystems form the basis of an intelligent technical system, and consist of four units: the underlying mechanical system, sensor technology, actuator technology and information processing technology. Examples include intelligent sensors, drives or automation components.
Systems comprise a number of interrelated subsystems. Examples include intelligent production machinery, household appliances or even ATMs.
Networked systems consist of multiple intercommunicating systems that may be in different geographical locations. Examples include self-optimizing production units, industrial laundries or networked currency circuits.
More information about it’s OWL innovation projects is provided in the project descriptions. The terms in the blue boxes can be used to filter projects by these three categories.
