Center Smart Sensing Systems Kick-Off Event

  CS3-KickOff Copyright: © CS3  

26 October 2021 in Aachen (in presence)

The Kick-Off event of Center Smart Sensing Systems will take place on October 26, 2021 in the presence of industry. At this event, we would like to introduce the new center to you and work with you on the focal points for the coming year.

Fields of competence of the Smart Sensing Systems Center

The development of cyber-physical systems is a highly interdisciplinary challenge that requires a high level of expertise in the individual disciplines - such as SHM systems, data and signal processing, sensor integration, digital twin, etc. The Center Smart Sensing Systems (CS3) bundles these expert competences and is a central platform for the development of such systems. To this end, part of the event is geared towards presenting the Center's areas of expertise and illustrating them using demonstrators.

Consortia projects

Following to research and industry defined goals in the context of digitalisation in Industry 4.0, for which the increasingly autonomous applications in all sectors require a new class of technical systems class of technical systems: "Smart Sensing Systems" - consisting of "sensing" components. For many technology SMEs and large companies, the innovation and work field of ''Smart Sensing Systems'' therefore offers a unique opportunity to grow and position themselves in international competition with convincing new products and services. To realize this, interdisciplinary cooperation in the form of consortia projects is necessary, as this is difficult for many companies to achieve this on their own. In its kick-Off event, the Center Smart Sensing Systems will present four consortia projects in the field of Smart Sensing Systems, which we would like to detail and work on together with you.

The participation is free of charge. After successful registration via the registration form you will receive the confirmation by mail.

The event will take place at the following address:
