I am working at a mechatronics institute at a German university, leading a small group in the field of robotics and automation.
I am very much interested in the field of smart home, but currently, my activities with openHAB are based on private interest.
Still, I see a huge potential for mechatronics in the field of smart home, e.g. in this area: Digital Twins and Machine Learning.
As there are funding calls for collaboration activities, I wanted to find out if we see a chance to join forces and to build consortia from the openHAB community to apply for common projects on national, but also on international level…
Cleary, also industrial/commercial researchers are welcome to report back as a good consortium sometimes needs a balanced share of both.
I hope to hear from you
