Institute of Systems and Robotics partner description
Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR) Association was founded by three partner Universities: University of Lisbon, University of Coimbra and University of Porto. The pole located at the University of Porto - ISR-Porto (or ISR-P) is a research unit hosted at FEUP - Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto.
The mission of ISR-P consists in scientific and technical research and development, advanced education and training, societal outreach, and sustained technology transfer in the areas of optimization, estimation and control, & networked systems with emphasis on unmanned vehicle-based systems, manufacturing systems and distributed power management systems.
Research in ReBorn will be undertaken by the Network Centric Control Systems (NCCS). NCCS develops basic and applied research in the areas of hierarchical decision and control in hybrid (mixed continuous-time and discrete-event systems) systems, with applications to manufacturing and mobile robotics with expertise in modeling, optimization and control of manufacturing systems and in software development (Java, C#, ..)
NCSS also develops basic and applied research in the area of real-time and dependable middleware and communications services for sensor networks. The goal is to facilitate the development of networked control applications and the integration of sensor networks with enterprise applications. Research is developed in co-operation with other universities and companies, as well as under international research contracts.
ISR’s role and contribution to ReBorn:
ISR will be involved in work packages 1, 2, 3, 6 and 8; but major contributions are in work package 3 “Knowledge driven methodologies for innovative factory lay-out design and adaptive
Reconfigurations” where ISP is task leader of task 3.3 “Life-cycle cost assessment for adaptive system reconfiguration and change” and the lead beneficiary of deliverable D3.5 “Life-cycle impact assessment tool for highly adaptive production systems: Technical implementation of the (software) tools for lifecycle impact assessment”.
Contributions of ISR are in the analysis, concept development, and implementation of models and tools for adaptive system reconfiguration and models for lifecycle impact assessment.
