Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is a research university specialising in engineering science & technology. Our education, research and knowledge valorisation contribute to:

  • Science for society: solving the major societal issues and boosting prosperity and welfare by focusing on the Strategic Areas of Energy, Health and Smart Mobility.
  • Science for industry: the development of technological innovation in cooperation with industry.
  • science for science: progress in engineering sciences through excellence in key research cores and innovation in education.

Excellent Education: We see it as our duty to train engineers to possess a sound scientific basis and scientific depth. They also have the necessary skills to successfully flourish in social sectors and functions. Bachelor College and Graduate School. With a view to the future, TU/e has begun a major educational reform. The Bachelor’s and Master’s programs remain but are being incorporated in a Bachelor College and Graduate School respectively. Students will be given more freedom and can even choose to follow a broadbased program with society-oriented subjects or opt for a very specialised science program.

Advanced quality research: With advanced quality research, the university contributes to the progress of technical sciences and thus the development of technological innovations. We focus on areas in which we participate in the international scientific community. This can play an important role. The TU/e wants to give significant impetus to the knowledge-intensive industries and other social sectors with a high or rapidly evolving technology-intensity.

Knowledge Valorisation: The TU/e puts emphasis on knowledge valorisation: research results are translated into successful innovations and serve as a basis for creating new products, processes and enterprises. We encourage students and staff to opt for entrepreneurship. Mission TU/e: With this profile, the TU/e profiles itself as a leading, international, in engineering science & technology specialised university. We offer excellent teaching and research and thereby contribute to the advancement of technical sciences and research to the developing of technological innovations and the growth of wealth and prosperity both in its own region (technology & innovation hotspot Eindhoven) and beyond. In short, the TU/e profiles itself as the university where innovation starts.

Relevant Expertise for the project:

TU/e has leading competences in sensor systems, net- worked embedded systems, data and process analysis, deep learning, all of which will be of key im- portance to MANTIS. Recently, TU/e created DSC/e, the Data Science Center Eindhoven, building on its leading position in the Data Science domain.

Role in the project:

TU/e will contribute to defining the use cases in healthcare and factory automation, extracting the relevant requirelments for the Mantis platform, and designing the platform architecture for preventive maintenance taking real-time constraints into account. TU/e will also explore and develop machine learning methods and tools for deriving failure predictions from the operational log data provided by the industrial partners. The failure predictions will be used for investigating various Page 224 of 279 ECSEL-2014-1 Full Project Proposal strategies for maintenance optimisation, taking into account the tradeoffs inherent in failure predictions due to the artefacts in real log data.
