artificial intelligence

Industrial IoT and Artificial Intelligence offer many promising possibilities. The physical requirements in manufacturing and the often equally stressful conditions of use partly inhibit those possibilities.

The project CHARM targets those problems. CHARMS stands for Challenging environments tolerant Smart systems for IoT and Artificial Intelligence. The project involves 37 partners from 10 European countries. Additionally, it has a budget of 29 Million Euros.

The project will develop sensors for e.g. gas detection, high temperature and pressure. Furthermore, it aims to develop advanced vision systems for real-time quality control and autonomous equipment for industrial applications. The partners will use Electronics component packaging technologies beyond state-of-the-art to ensure that the sensors are able to withstand the harsh conditions.


Over the next ten years, major progress needs to be made in the area of conventional computing in order to keep pace with the requirements of new applications. High Performance Computing (HPC) is one option to amplify the capabilities of…
