"Knowledge-based methods and technologies for digitalization"

The OMILAB Node at the University of Vienna is a space to collaborate, innovate and engineer. Both a physical and virtual place, it is equipped with tools to explore method creation and design, experiment with method engineering and deploy software tools for modelling.

The dissemination of established know-how, the exploitation of recent research results and their further development assure a sustainable impact on the community. The Agile Modelling Method Engineering Framework is one of the core knowledge resources provided by the OMiLAB Vienna Node. Design Thinking is another valuable expertise of the node, enhanced by the development of the Scene2Model tool.

The work accomplished by the OMiLAB Vienna Node provides novel research results in the areas of Meta-Modelling, Semantic Technologies, Hybrid Method Engineering and Intelligent and Agile Agents.

About the Hosting Organisation

The main research goal of the RG Knowledge Engineering is to provide transparent, ubiquitous knowledge that can be semantically processed by IT systems. In the context of international cooperation, the group provides research-guided teaching on an advanced scientific level with practical relevance mainly in the area of business informatics. The University of Vienna has more than 650 years of academic excellence, being one of the oldest higher education institutions in Europe. Nine scientists associated with the University of Vienna, through either research or teaching, have been awarded the most prestigious distinction in science: the Nobel Prize. Currently, the university has 15 faculties and 5 centres, a total of 9.900 employees and 88.000 students across 178 different study programs.

The following, selected activities are organized by the OMiLAB.

NEMO Summerschool

The NEMO Summer School Series focuses on addressing these challenges through modelling, both in theory and practice. How to define modelling with the ‘right’ level of abstraction and how to engineer suitable modelling tools is at the heart of the summer school.

DigiFoF Project

The DIGIFOF project proposes a network of training environments where HEIs, enterprises and training insitutions come together to develop skill profiles, training concepts as well as materials for design aspects of the Factory of the Future (FoF).

The following cyber-physical resources are available at the OMILAB node:

Dobot Magician

The Dobot Magican demonstrates sorting and collaborative scenarios.

Makeblock mBot

This CPS is applied for smart mobility application scenarios.

Makeblock mBot Rover

The Rover provides additional sensors and a different operational setup, compared to the mBot Classic.

Mecanum wheel

A large mobile robot that demonstrates loading/unloading mechanisms as well as novel turning capabilities.

BeeBop Drone

Controlling a drone using models? Application scenarios from follow-me and smart tourist guides are realized using this CPS.

NAO

This humanoid robot provides demonstration capabilities for human-machine interaction. The OMiLAB node has two NAOs available for collaborative scenarios.

DrawBot

For design thinking scenarios, this CPS enables remote white-boarding.
