Industry 4.0

Applied and quality research for the future industry

The objective of Industry 4.0 is to achieve greater adaptability to the needs of future production processes, a more efficient allocation of resources, and the design of advanced materials. Within the IIT, the research in Industry 4.0 is structured in three thematic areas:

  • Mechanical systems and advanced materials group, dedicated to the design of mechanical parts and computer simulation, including fundamental physics, electromagnetism, and wind analysis among others. This working group also provides research in the use of advanced materials for industrial and biomedical applications.
  • Intelligent Systems and bigdata group, aimed at analyzing information for monitoring, diagnosis, reliability and maintenance of industrial processes, and modeling and prediction of industrial and economic systems.
  • ICT and advanced control group, focused on the development of electronic instrumentation and microprocessors, power electronics, control engineering applications, signal analysis, electronic design automation and digital communications.
