The German research organization Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is collaborating with the VSB – Technical University of Ostrava to research and develop the potential of energy management technologies, artificial intelligence, and intelligent production in industry in reducing greenhouse gas emissions while improving production.
The venture “Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Applied Artificial Intelligence for Materials & Manufacturing at VSB – Technical University of Ostrava FIP-AI@VSB-TUO” commenced operation on June 1, 2021.
The objective is to develop thermal energy storage systems in industry on the basis of modular concepts for energy storage and heat recovery systems. They link this approach with solutions for digital production technologies and integration in process chains. Advanced and highly-specialized AI applications will play a key role in this process.
