FEI, VŠB-TUO part of the ROBOPROX project!

The ROBOPROX project with a total budget of 467.9 million CZK. ROBOPROX is the only project supported under this call that focuses on research in the field of robotics and industrial informatics. It will develop new methods for advanced industrial production.

The project was prepared in cooperation with the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU), Brno University of Technology (BUT), University of West Bohemia in Pilsen (ZČU).

ROBOPROX will focus on the use of algorithms and optimization methods in the field of production planning and logistics, energy efficiency, flexible deployment of robots with a high degree of autonomy, safe cooperation of robots with humans in a limited working space and the use of drones. It will also focus on interdisciplinary research at the intersection of optimization, systems theory, and materials engineering for the design, simulation, and fabrication of modular structures and surface engineering.

FEEI, specifically the Department of Computer Science, will deal with Applications of metaheuristic methods for large-scale high-dimensional data with respect to real-world applications.

The range of areas that ROBOPROX will impact is broad and ranges from basic to applied research. The research activities are divided into two main areas: control and optimization of systems, materials and manufacturing, and robotics and computational methods for manufacturing.

More than 300 scientific publications are expected, including 190 in the world's top journals in the field. The project intends to transform these cutting-edge results into concrete prototypes, software, patents and to create the basis for national and international projects focused on specific applications. Cooperation will be developed with a number of industrial companies. Among the partners who have already supported the project during its preparation are ABB, Škoda Auto, Siemens, Porsche Engineering, Valeo Autoclimatisation, Lasertherm, E.ON Digital Technology, Hofmeister, Packeta, ROTANA or the start-up RoboTwin.
