The history of Chemnitz University of Technology (TUC) spans 180 years. Today, the university has more than 11,000 students and there are more than 150 full professors and 2,000 employees working across its eight faculties (natural sciences, mathematics, computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and information technology, business administration, humanities, behavioural and social sciences).
The research profile of the university covers three aspects:
- Materials and intelligent systems
- Efficient and flexible production
- Humans and technology
Two departments from TUC are participating in the Factory2Fit project. The department of Factory Planning and Factory Management’s research focus is on the development of innovative production systems. And the department of Cognitive and Engineering Psychology’s research focuses on Human-Machine-Interaction with automated systems in various domains.
The TUC teams have extensive experience in both the design and control of production systems using sophisticated methods and technology, as well as adaptive and customised automation in the vehicle domain. TUC’s role within the Factory2Fit project will primarily be the development of the quantified worker-based user model. They will also participate in carrying out the industrial pilots.
