  • Protection of critical maritime infrastructures

    Heterogeneous unmanned group of intelligent water vehicles (HUGIN)

    The HUGIN project set itself the goal of researching and improving the collaboration and cooperation of intelligent, autonomous watercraft. Algorithms and technologies from a wide range of areas, such as artificial intelligence, data analysis and control technology, were integrated in such a way that the overall demonstrator, consisting of several vehicles, was able to plan missions independently in various scenarios and execute them in a resource-optimized manner.

  • AGATA

    Analyzing large amounts of data in manufacturing processes

    Modern harvesting machines are complex systems that can be configured in many different ways. For example, countless individual parameters can be set by adjusting the sieves, threshing drum speed, vehicle speed, fan power and much more. The BMBF project AGATA is investigating how an optimal configuration can be found here to make the machines as efficient as possible for each field.
