With "Where IT meets Automation", inIT is pursuing a visionary approach to making information always available in the best quality. AI and ML succeed in bringing networked intelligent automation to diverse industries. Future systems perform self-optimisation, self-diagnosis and usability to respond to fluctuating markets.
We work on automation for intelligent technical systems, and our overarching research focus is networked, interactive, embedded real-time systems for industrial information technology. Our core competence is to be able to capture information precisely, network it efficiently and process it intelligently. inIT’s method- and technology-oriented areas of competence are derived from this triad:
- Industrial communication
- Industrial image processing and pattern recognition
- Intelligent analysis methods in automation
- Human-Technology Interaction
These research and competence areas are operationalised through numerous projects in the various fields of application. In the area of production technology, we observe constant change, and this trend will increase significantly in the future. New demands on production such as a high level of product individualisation or the manufacturing of small quantities under large-scale production conditions, but also rising energy prices and political framework conditions require a more efficient, economic and ecological production process. These challenges can be addressed through the use of cyber-physical production systems (CPPS), including machine diagnostics of complex machines and plants through sensor and information fusion of networked sensors and edge computing. The interrelationships are demonstrated by a printing unit demonstrator as an example.
The Hannover Messe is the world's leading trade fair for industry. Visit us at the OWL joint stand from 17-21 April 2023 in Hall 7, Stand D27.
