Name: DTL-Skjern. The Digital Transformation Lab-Skjern Project is composed by a consortium of Ringkøbing-Skjern Business Council and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus UniversityDuring its lifetime it will showcase the future of industry and form the basis for developing product prototypes with increased digitalisation, new materials and production technologies in a joint effort to ensure that local companies (located in the west coast of Denmark) are at the forefront of the digital transformation.

Duration: 2021 - 2024

Granted by: A 16 million DKK investment by the  Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality and its Knowledge Committee together with local companies

Name: DIGITbrain. The DIGITbrain Project is composed by a consortium of 36 partners coordinated by PNO Consultants. During its lifetime it will recruit a further 35-40 collaborators in two Open Calls, mainly technology and manufacturing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The Digital Brain is a novel concept, extending the Digital Twin towards supporting the full lifecycle of industrial products and facilitating the configuration and orchestration of assets related to an industrial-product instance.

Granted by: The European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under Grant Agreement N°952071.

Name: DiT4CPS.The Digital Twins for Cyber-Physical Systems (DiT4CPS) project is supported by the Poul Due Jensen Foundation with a personal grant to Professor Peter Gorm Larsen at 12MDKK. The project started April 2019 and it will last for 4 years. This is a basic research project purely conducted by the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University led by the principal investigator Peter Gorm Larsen.

Duration: 2019 - 2023

Granted by: Poul Due Jensen Foundation

Name: AgroRobottiFleet. AgroRobottiFleet aims to improve efficiency of robots in performing agricultural task. In fleets they are tasked to collaborate and interact. This requires, on one hand, reliable communication but also safety guarantees and mechanisms to ensure they are obeyed. Peter Gorm Larsen and Lukas Esterle from Aarhus University, Department of Engineering, lead the efforts towards adjustable autonomy in agricultural robots.

Granted by: Danish Innovation Foundation

Name: MADE FAST. MADE FAST is the third major project coordinated by the MADE consortium in relation with manufacturing in Denmark. FAST is an acronym for Flexibility, Agility, Sustainability and Talent and the full budget is more than a quarter of a billion DKK, where 80MDKK comes from the Danish Innovation Foundation. It is a collaboration with more than 50 companies, 5 universities and 3 GTSs.

Duration: 2020 - 2023

Granted by: Innovation Fund Denmark

Name: HUBCAP: Digital Innovation HUBs and Collaborative Platform for Cyber-Physical Systems.

The aim of HUBCAP is to deliver a vision of a sustainable network of SMEs, DIHs and other actors that enables and encourages suppliers and users of CPS models and MBD tools to meet and collaborate. Working with the hubs, SMEs will be able to access central funding for experiments via open calls as well as direct support. Members will make models, tools, training materials and expertise available to each other, either freely or on a commercial basis, making it faster and easier to access MBD CPS engineering tools.

Duration: 2020 - 2022

Granted by: Horizon 2020, 8M Euro, grant agreement number 872698

Name: ACoSim: Application of co-simulation to support test and operations. The purpose of the ACoSim project is to conduct research on co-simulation techniques to be used in the space domain for Verification & Validation (V&V) activities.

Duration: 2018 - 2020

Granted by: The ACoSim project related to the application of co-simulation to support test and operations was awarded to EMTECH Space P.C. consortium by ESA/ESTEC. EMTECH is the prime contractor and TWT GmbH, Thales Alenia Space Italia (TAS-I) and Aarhus University (Denmark) are sub-contractors.

Name: MADE Digital. MADE Digital builds on the research of MADE SPIR with the aim of accelerating the digital transformation of Danish manufacturing companies. MADE Digital is a Danish equivalent to Germany’s Industrie 4.0, but suited to Danish conditions. Many companies in Denmark are among the best in the world within their niches, producing in small volume to customer specific needs, and Danish industry has a tradition of collaboration and mutual trust. These are the strengths, MADE Digital builds upon.

Duration: 2017 - 2019

Granted by: Innovation Fund Denmark

Name: Intelligent Software, Healing Environments. In this project we will develop new artificial intelligence-based Computer-Aided Architecture Design (CAAD) tools, with real-world impact, for analysing the health and safety of public buildings (risk identification, assessment, mitigation). These tools will incorporate concepts of people, perception and behaviour into the building model itself within the CAAD tool, at a fundamental level.

Duration: 2018 - 2021

Name: INTO-CPS: Integrated Tool Chain for Model-based Design of Cyber-Physical Systems. In the INTO-CPS project, we created an integrated "tool chain" for comprehensive Model-Based Design (MBD) of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs). The tool chain supports the multidisciplinary, collaborative modelling of CPSs from requirements, through design, down to realisation in hardware and software. This enables traceability at all stages of the development. The IP from this project has been transferred to the INTO-CPS Association after the completion of the project.

Duration: 2015 - 2018

Granted by: EU (Horizon 2020)

Name: DESTECS: Design Support and Tooling for Embedded Control Software. DESTECS is a consortium of research groups and companies working on the challenge of developing fault-tolerant embedded systems. We are focussed on developing design methods and tools that bridge the gap between the disciplines involved in designing an embedded system: systems, control, mechanical and software engineering, for example. These disciplines, which have grown up separately, base design on different forms of model - some use discrete event models, and some use continuous time - inhibiting our ability to compare design alternatives rapidly and in particular to model faults and fault tolerance mechanisms that have to cross the boundaries between models. This “design gap” leads to sub-optimal designs and long development lead times.

Duration: 2011 - 2014

Granted by: EU (FP7)

Name: COMPASS: Comprehensive Modelling for Advanced Systems of Systems. The design of innovative products and services that take advantage of Systems of Systems (SoS) technology is in its infancy. It is hampered by the complexity caused by the heterogeneity and independence of SoS constituent systems and the difficulty of communication between diverse stakeholders. COMPASS augments existing industry tools and practice with an underlying modelling language in which SoS architectures and contracts can be expressed.
