Chemnitz University of Technology develops learning algorithm for improved car body manufacturing in BMBF-funded project
The digitization of production is currently one of the most important fields of action in the area of auto body production and its related technologies, so that Germany’s businesses in which this sector is a central branch can secure future growth and employment.
The new research project "Machine Learning for the Prognosis of Process Parameters and Component Quality in Automotive Body Manufacturing" (ML@Karoprod) is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Partners in the project include the Professorship of Artificial Intelligence (Prof. Dr. Fred Hamker), the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU in Dresden (Dr. Mathias Jäckel) as well as Scale GmbH (Dr. Ingolf Lepenies).
The project focuses on model development and the application of machine learning (ML) techniques to accelerate the initial planning and serial setup in car body manufacturing. Chemnitz University of Technology will receive € 257 000 of the total funding of roughly € 1.2 million.
The Chemnitz University of Technology schedule follows three main phases: In the first phase, a forward model is trained in order to predict the consequences of an action with unsupervised learning.
In the second phase, this trained model will be used to accelerate the model-based Deep Reinforcement Learning Algorithm. Its task will be to find a sequence of production parameters that optimizes the quality of the final product.
In the third phase, the developed algorithm is tested on the real production system, in which its robustness against missing sensory information will be tested and evaluated.

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.
Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...
'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.
However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
