Research focus and goals

Our research group focuses on the following research themes: Future Production Strategies, Manufacturing ICT, Collaborative Robotics and Education research.

  • The first theme includes topics such as Sustainable production development, Collaborative processes, and Circular economy (Re- and De-manufacturing).
  • The second theme focuses on Smart manufacturing, Production UIs, Production planning and control (Manufacturing Operations Management), Digitalization in Manufacturing, and Manufacturing KPIs.
  • Within the third theme, our group conducts research on Production Automation, Robot systems, Interactive human-machine collaboration and interfaces, Safety, Context-aware systems, Machine vision, Data mining from the machines and systems, Sliding Automation/Autonomy.
  • On education we study e.g. Continuous learning, Pedagogics, Didactic systems, Phenomena-based learning, and Versatile education environments.

Our teaching in production systems and technologies relies strongly on high end learning environments like  Robolab Tampere, Virtual FMS and Training Center
