Robert Bosch Ltd.

Dr. Björn Andres of the Bosch Centre for Artificial Intelligence (BCAI) in Renningen has established an Industry-on-Campus Group in collaboration with the university's Informatics department. His work centres on finding answers to leading questions in the application of Artificial Intelligence in industrial situations.

One example is the research on vibration sensors that are used for predictive diagnosis: vibrations that are barely perceptible to humans can announce the failure of a machine long before it is actually defective. The benefit is that parts can be exchanged in good time, before failure, avoiding prolonged downtime and loss of production. The predictive diagnosis is an example of machine learning, which is the research focus of the BCAI.
