WS06 - Digital twins, components and systems for smart mechatronic applications

Workshop Organized by

Martin Cech, , Czech Republic and Manuel Beschi, University of Brescia, Italy and Antonio Visioli, University of Brescia, Italy

Aims and Objectives

Research on digital twin technologies is affecting all of engineering domains. Specifically, one can see huge interest of applying digital twin technologies in smart production technologies, robots and mechatronic devices. However, lots of components and systems must be modelled, each with a bit different approach. The proposed workshop should focus on specific systems (SW, HW, sensors, actuators) that are necessary to run machines in optimal way. Next, workshop will focus on specific toolchains and modelling platforms that allow to model those components and integrate partial models into bigger units using standardized interfaces.

Topics under this workshop include (but not limited to)

  • Novel HW architectures (SoC+FPGA, ASICs, RISC V, ...) for motion control
  • Smart computer vision systems, high-speed vision systems
  • Smart wireless sensors, novel principle sensors (also self-powered)
  • Smart high-performance servo-drives
  • Smart control algorithms (robust control, vibration control, repetitive control)
  • Hard real-time control systems
  • Self-commissioning, performance monitoring and condition monitoring of machines
  • AI, machine learning and deep learning in the context of motion control applications
  • Industrial communication protocols and cyber-security tools for motion control apps
  • Motion planning, path planning, collision avoidance
  • Modelling and simulation platforms, FMI/FMU
  • Identification of complex robots and machines
  • Predictive maintenance of robots and machines
  • General digital twin technologies
  • Digital twin as a service, machine design as a service
  • Optimization of robots and machines
  • Case studies, applications and demonstrators
