The research group combines robotics, machine tool technology and metrology with automatic control and sensor systems. The research will benefit from synergy between the manufacturing industry with its strong focus on cost effective operations, and the offshore and maritime industry with high-value products in small batches. This perspective is a response to manufacturing research in Europe which is based on a long-term shift from cost-based focus to competition based on products of high added value, small batch sizes, changeable production requirements and complex tasks requiring efficient principle of automation.
