Science becomes reality

THE LCM TECHNOLOGY CENTER IS THE INTEGRATED RESEARCH CENTER FOR SYMBIOTIC MECHATRONICS

In order to ensure that we are always on the cutting edge, LCM is operating a COMET K2 center of excellence “Symbiotic Mechatronics.” This Comet K2 center is funded by the Federal Ministries for Digitization and the Environment and the State of Upper Austria. This funding enables LCM to undertake risky innovative projects with various partners at the intersection of science and business. These projects are handled by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).

SYMBIOTIC MECHATRONICS

Symbiotic mechatronics enable the useful interaction between mechatronic systems and their respective environment, which can be physical, digital, or human.

MECHATRONICS IN TRANSITION

Mechatronics systems are indispensable in today’s world. But in the future it will become increasingly important for these systems to interact with each other as well as their physical, digital, human, or climate-specific environment.
We are venturing on this path and we are also supporting our partners and customers in transitioning from traditional mechatronics to symbiotic mechatronics.

RESEARCH NETWORK

The intensive cooperation between LCM, international universities, and research partners is at the heart of our sustainable internationalization strategy. The scientific results of the Comet K2 research projects, together with the know-how of our employees, form the basis for the successful development of new, smart, networked, and autonomous systems.

OUR RESEARCH AREAS:

ACT, MECON, SENS, SYMB

  • ACT: Actuators as one of the core functions of every mechatronic system and the holistic design of complex systems.
  • MECON: Complex mechatronic systems and their digital representations for regulation and optimization.
  • SENS: Sensor systems as the eyes and ears as well as for merged data processing with a link to machine learning.
  • SYMB: Trans-disciplinary context of mechatronics with its interfaces to humans, the environment, and the digital world.

Science becomes reality

LCM stands for the quick transfer of scientific findings into real-world industrial use. Our many years of cooperation with internationally renowned research partners ensures that the latest technologies are applied. Our top priorities are partnerships and the exchange of know-how from idea to finished product.

PROJECTS WITH INTERNATIONAL FUNDING

The team at LCM is highly experienced in the implementation of EU projects and other international undertakings. Some of the resulting products have already been successfully released on the market. We apply to the following national programs and structural funds:

ETP – JTIs – cPPPs – EIPs – ERANET – EIT (KICs) – HORIZON2020 – Art. 185-initiatives
