Metrology Data Analytics
WP8 Metrology Approach to Artificial Intelligence Control

WP8 focuses on building a metrology approach to bio-inspired AI control to extract maximal traceable information to optimise the control of machine-tools/assembly/measurement platforms. Without this building of rigour from the Engineering domain into the Computer Science domain, the potential for AI implementation will be hampered or precluded.

This work package focuses on the use of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning techniques as an enabler for advanced control. It therefore closely aligns with the “white box” technology of WP4, including the methods of incorporating “measurement uncertainty” and traceability into the control models and their implementation. In addition, the AI toolbox will be informed by results from WP5 and WP6 and can be an analytical and predictive tool with the bidirectional flow to WP7.

The outputs from the WP will be implemented as part of WP12 and platform projects “Machine-tool and Large Volume Metrology.”
