industrial sectors

Artificial intelligence is producing disruptive changes in private and public organizations because its applications are extraordinary. In an organization a lot of knowledge is generated and cognitive systems allow data to be preserved, classified and accessible to all workers, allowing, for example, if they are manufacturing plastic parts they can avoid any production error thanks to Machine Learning.

In this laboratory we apply BigData, Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning to public and private companies in real applications.

industrial sectors

The objective is to make available to companies the facilities, advanced equipment and knowledge to support research, design, development and validation of new products and industrial processes.

In the IoT (Internet of Things) and Blockchain SmartLab, new systems and products are developed supported by IoT, Blockchain, Data Analytics or Digital Twin technologies, allowing the connection of the physical world and the digital world through the use of physical devices and allowing a secure, distributed and immutable use of information.

industrial sectors

This Smart Structures & Systems Laboratory consists of several work areas, such as the one for Structural Integrity, fatigue, durability and structural health monitoring, the Robotics and Control Laboratory (Control and Autonomous Systems), and the Scaled processes & Digital Twins ( digital twin).

In the SS&S Smart Lab companies from different sectors learn about ITAINNOVA's activity aimed, among others, at the electric vehicle and autonomous driving sector.
