Systems engineering of high-tech systems

HTSC Research Meet

Tuesday June 27, 2023 from 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM
TU/e campus | Neuron 0.262
Navigation: LaPlace 32, Eindhoven

You are invited for the HTSC Research Meet

 “Research and engineering of High Tech Systems” at the TU Eindhoven"

The complexity of our high-tech systems increases rapidly, and the engineering organizations developing them need to adopt their way of working to stay in control. System engineering as a process and systems thinking as a skill are critical for this. In this Research Meet we explore new applications and reflect on the innovations that we will need.

Organizer: Ton Peijnenburg

External guest speaker is Esmée Bertens, alumna of TU/e who has worked as a systems engineer in the domain of infrastructure, currently at Synergio as management consultant, trainer and coach. In her talk, she will discuss the differences and similarties when applying systems engineering methodologies in intrastructure versus hightech.

High Tech Systems

In next-generation high-tech and mechatronic systems, extreme functionalities and performance requirements will be realized by using a model-based multi-physics systems approach.

New sensing technologies and actuator designs for multi-physics processes (forces, flows, temperatures, acoustics, optics) will need to be integrated with and used by distributed on-line model-based control and optimization tools. The control systems are adaptive, auto-tuned, are implemented in optimized hardware and software architectures, and use effective (wireless) communication.
