Technische Universität Wien

Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien) is Austria's largest scientific technical research and educational institution with eight faculties and more than 20,000 students. With more than 3,600 researchers covering virtually all technical sciences, TU Wien is a strong partner for both industrial and academic research activities.

The following two institutes of TU Wien contribute to SemI40:.

  • TU Wien - Automation and Control Institute (ACIN) is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. ACIN accomodates three research groups: Complex Dynamical Systems, Industrial Automation, and Vision for Robotics. The group on Complex Dynamical Systems is headed by Prof. Kugi and involved in SemI40. In this group, 5 PostDocs and 23 PhD students research in the field of mathematical modelling, simulation, analysis, optimization and control of complex dynamical systems. Special emphasis is put on the design of the closed-loop behavior of (mechatronic) systems in view of improving the overall dynamic properties as well as their accuracy, robustness, sustainability, reliability, agility, and flexibility. Practically all scientific activities of Prof. Kugi’s group are motivated by real-world problems. The group is involved in numerous successful industrial research collaborations with applications ranging from the steel industry, to automotive applications, robotics and handling systems, electromechanical and fluiddynamical drive systems to micro-mechanical devices.
  • TU Wien - Institute of Computer Engineering (ICE): The Institute for Computer Engineering (ICE) is one of its seven computer science institutes.  Within ICE, Prof. Radu Grosu heads the Cyber-Physical Systems Group (CPS), the successor of the Real-Time Systems Group headed  by  Prof.  Hermann Kopetz.  Research  is  dedicated  to  all  aspects  of  time-triggered  real-time systems, fault-tolerant distributed algorithms, as well as  modelling and analysis of HW/SW architectures and System-on-a-Chip design. Moreover,  research and teaching activities of the  CPS  focus on modeling, analysis  and  control  of  complex  dynamic  systems,  model  checking,  abstract  interpretation,  logic  and automata  theory,  control  theory,  computational  models  in  systems  biology,  and  software  and  systems engineering.

With more than 3,600 researchers covering virtually all technical sciences, TU Wien is a strong partner for both industrial and academic research activities.


  • TU Wien - ACIN is contributing to WP2, WP5, and WP6 as a participating partner. Moreover, it is the leader of Task 2.3.2 “System development for tracking, data acquisition, modelling and optimal process control”.
  • TU Wien – ICE is contributing in WP3 and WP6 with focus on on learning a correlations model from the humongous big-data created in the proces of chip fabrication.

Key contribution

  • TU Wien - ACIN supports in WP2 the analysis and development of real-time capable tailored mathematical models, agile process control strategies and advanced production scheduling algorithms. All research activities are focussed on a use case concerned with the preheating of refractory materials used as sputter targets.
  • TU Wien – ICE will provide its expertise in modelling cyber-physical systems to improve efficiency and quality output of a fab by developing a model to detect critical deviations in the production process earlier.
