Determine the state of health of machines

The aim of the project is to investigate the scientific and technical basis for the detection, diagnosis and prediction of faults in technical systems. In particular, the research of robust learning algorithms will be used to create the basis for a software platform that can be used as generally as possible to analyze the state of technical systems.

Project Smart Villages started

Digitisation in rural areas

The aim of the Interreg Alpine Space project "Smart Villages" is to prepare communities in the Alpine Space to recognise and exploit the opportunities offered by digitisation. Various cities throughout Europe are already calling themselves Smart Cities. This approach is now to be applied to rural communities as well.
