Industrial Automation and Informatics Laboratory

The world-leading Industrial Automation and Informatics Laboratory develops and tests new concepts for the control of distributed automation systems within the context of Industrial Internet of Things and cloud computing.

We develop prototypes of the "next generation" controllers that will be easy to program and reprogram using new language of function blocks. These controllers will be embedded to machines and their components, such as motors, sensors, etc. They will be talking to each other with wireless networks.

The laboratory is equipped with a model modular of flexible manufacturing system controlled by the new generation controllers compliant with the new function block standard (IEC 61499). We apply these new control ideas in baggage handling systems, SmartGrid, assembly, etc.
