The initial portfolio of IMA+ is composed by seven research and development projects, aimed at technological solutions in three technological areas:
Advanced Systems in Reliability and Maintenance
The challenges of real-time monitoring, non-productive times, predictability and resource management, equipment availability, among others, will be addressed by the research experts of the Universidad de Chile and the Universidad de Santiago. The purpose of this technological area is to develop three commercial level solutions:
Predictive systems to support the maintenance management of industrial assets based on computational intelligence tools.
Development of a device that integrates biosensors and labor fatigue prognosis methodologies.
A Digital Twin refers to a digital replica of a physical systems, in which operations can be modeled, monitored and controlled in real time. In addition, it is possible to simulate, test and evaluate changes without negatively affecting the system operation and being able to implement those changes that have a positive effect.
Development of Digital Twin solutions to optimize and control in real-time production lines
Advanced Automation and Robotics.
Performing a correct analysis in real-time for making critical decisions, avoiding security failures or reparins and recovering part, are just some of the challenges that the industry requires today.
Development of an automatic system for manufacturing and recovering metallic parts by additive manufacturing.
Autonomous navigation of frontal loaders (LHD) in underground mining.
Haptic tele-operation of manipulator for rocks fracture.
