Focal points

Mobile technologies and smart products

To make artificial intelligence usable for logistics processes, mobile technologies are necessary to collect and transmit data in a variety of environments. This concerns the areas of: identification, localization, sensor technology, communication, robotic and process control.

Efficient planning and control of logistic processes and technical systems

Individual objects collect and process data about their status as well as their environment. This enables an autonomic decision making. The decentralized process control impart complex systems higher efficiency and robustness. The required technical systems for this are mainly characterized by a close interaction between hard - and software.

Adaptive systems for a changing environment

Recognizing problems, making decisions, communicate them and act based on the new targets. One Characteristic of adaptive systems is an active dialogue with the environment. This enables the system to adapt to the respective requirements and to consider disturbances or damages.
