New research project will increase the autonomy of drones and lightweight aircraft with the help of AI
NCONTROL-RL, a nationally funded research project led by TTTech recently kicked off in a virtual meeting. Its aim is to develop an avionics platform focusing on future certifiability and researching advantages when using Artificial Intelligence components in flight control.
Change2Twin, a European project supporting manufacturing SMEs in their digitalization process, is announcing the launch of its 2nd Deployment Voucher Open Call. This program provides up to 16 vouchers, worth 90,000 euros each, to European SMEs and mid-caps looking to digitize their processes with a digital twin. TTTech is a consortium member and supports the project with technical expertise and key technology.
Within the framework of the ECSEL-JU project Aggregate Farming in the Cloud (AFarCloud), a virtual terminal was developed that can help turn existing tractors into smart machines, capable of semi-autonomous operation. This innovation could make agriculture more sustainable and counteract skilled labor shortage in rural areas.
On October 20, TTTech CEO and co-founder Georg Kopetz participated in the Annual Meeting of the Junge Industrie, the youth branch of the Federation of Austrian Industries. In his keynote, he tackled the question: how can we turn Austria, and especially Vienna, into an international innovation hot spot?
A joint paper submitted by TTTech Labs Corporate Scientist Silviu Craciunas has been selected as one of three outstanding papers at the 30th International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems (RTNS 2022). The paper was co-authored with researchers from the Technical University of Denmark and the Beihang University in China.
In June 2022, the 3rd International Smart Factory Summit was held in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. The organizer Swiss Smart Factory (SSF) invited representatives from companies and research institutions active in industrial automation to the expansive Switzerland Innovation Park for three days of education, exchange, and networking.
The EU project Change2Twin* was started two years ago with the goal of supporting small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in their digitalization journey. In a virtual kick-off event hosted by TTTech in March 2022, 11 companies that secured funding for their digital twin via the project’s open call, discovered suitable technologies and met their mentors for the first time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation in Austria: For many organizations, digital solutions like video conferencing and remote working seemed challenging to implement on a large scale before 2020, but by 2022 they have become the “new normal”.
Swiss Smart Factory, a local innovation hub located in Biel, Switzerland, recently opened the doors to its new state-of-the art factory shopfloor to a network of European partners. The experimental manufacturing facility houses high-tech products from numerous technology partners, including TTTech, and is hoped to become the site of many future research projects in Industry 4.0 and the industrial IoT.
On June 30, 2021, the H2020 project Change2Twin launches its second Open Call to support European manufacturing companies in their digitization using digital twin technology. TTTech is a consortium member and provides TTTech Industrial’s open edge computing platform Nerve to one of the project's four pilots.
Digital twin is the trend of the hour in the industrial IoT. Many companies dream of having this digital reproduction of a product, process or production site at their disposal, due to the cost and resource saving potential it offers in the mid- to long term. However, especially SMEs often struggle with organizational and technological barriers as well as high setup costs.
The EU-funded project i4Q (Industrial Data Services for Quality Control in Smart Manufacturing) aims to improve quality control in manufacturing by developing IoT-based Reliable Industrial Data Services (RIDS). TTTech Industrial provides the technology for reliable communication which will help manufacturing businesses reduce cost and resources and ultimately increase Europe’s competitiveness in manufacturing.
EU-funded Change2Twin Project launches first Open Call to speed up industrial digitalization in Europe
Change2Twin is a European project, funded under the Horizon 2020 scheme, which supports manufacturing SMEs in their digitalization process by providing digital twin solutions.
