Project : coprin
Section: Application Domains
Keywords : quantum mechanic, optimal design, robotics, mechanism theory, software engineering.
While the methods developed in the project may be used for a very broad set of application domains (for example a difficult problem in quantum mechanic has been addressed this year), it is clear that the size of the project does not allow all of them to be addressed. Hence we have decided to focus our applicative activities on two domains for which we have already an expertise: mechanism theory (including robotics) and software engineering.
mechanism theory: our research focus on optimal design and geometrical modeling of mechanisms, especially for the machine-tool industry, automotive suspensions and medical robotics. As some problems in mechanism theory and molecular chemistry are basically equivalent, they will also be addressed
software engineering: our research focus on the automatic generation of test data sets i.e. to generate input data so that a given step in a software module will be executed
