Institute for Automation and Electrical Technology

The Institute for Automation and Electrical Technology (IAE) is an interdisciplinary facility for the teaching, research and development in these areas.

The IAE integrates research and development activities in mechatronics, robotics, measuring, control and regulatory technology - especially digital control, and robust control - as well as system identification, dynamic simulation and analogue, digital and micro-electronics. The focus of the institute is electrical motors, actuators, mechanical and electrical sensors, high-speed digital signal processing, embedded FPGA / VHDL-solutions for digital real-time regulatory systems (System on Chip SoC) and real-time simulation. The IAE has comprehensive equipment with diverse control and regulatory devices (for example, SPS, CNC, PC with process-IO), simulation programmes, sensors, actuators, field buses, motors, robots, pneumatic handling device as well as components for building automation, which provides good prospects for the realization of new concepts.

The extensive “competence-cluster” and the utilization of synergies with the Alfred-Wegener-Institute, Hemholtz-Centre for Polar and Marine Research and the business provide ideal conditions for a continuous development of automation and electrical disciplines at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven.
