Robotic Assistance

The present generation of robots are based on systems that are equipped with standard products for intelligent sensor systems. These machines are usually embedded in a rigid control unit and have little cognitive abilities. PROFACTOR's research focuses on innovative technology solutions an...

Machine Learning for Machine Vision

Machine learning for machine vision systems is of growing importance to deal with the variability of industrial production. Learning systems are particularly required in the field of surface inspection and quality control. The final goal is to proceed from the detection of defective parts ...

Flexible Production Systems

Flexibility and Interoperability is becoming – in addition to price and quality strategies – an increasingly important competitive factor. Networked machines, software, employees, suppliers, customers are a reality. Unfortunately, the design and engineering of software for decentralise...

Simulation Based Decision Support and Optimisation

The increasing flexibility of production, the increasing volatility of requirements and boundary conditions as well as the increasing system complexity bring classical analysis and calculation methods to their limits. In addition to these trends, more and more decisions are made on the bas...

Visual Computing

Visual Computing combines established and scientific methods for position determination, tracking technologies and machine learning to drive the following innovations: Systems with higher-value perception and assistance options Smart devices and tools Collaborating robots We are a technolo...
