The “Internet of Things” will have a huge impact on our work and living spheres. The IOT Research Group investigates how knowledge-based systems, data management, sensor devices and Internet technologies can be combined to create product and service innovations. The aim is always “virtualisation”, i.e. the merging of the physical with the virtual world. Creating and making use of, appropriate technology stacks will be a core competence in advanced engineering, manufacturing, and any form of product and service design.
Technologies & methods: cyber-physical product design, semantic product life cycle management, data management in production networks, maintenance 4.0, data security and privacy
