About the Hosting Organisation

The University of Oulu is an international science university that creates new knowledge, well-being, and innovations for the future through research and education. The University of Oulu, founded in 1958, is one of the biggest and the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland.

BISG conducts internationally acknowledged multidisciplinary research in the areas of Data Analysis, Robotics, Secure Programming, and Bio-IT. The application areas of our research include optimization of industrial manufacturing processes, industry 4.0, health and wellbeing systems, environmental monitoring with mobile robots, dependable Internet of things (IoT), and seamless artificial-natural systems.

The mission of the Robotics Group is to study and develop methods, theories, sensors, and platforms for creating mobile robots that are adaptive and capable of performing purposeful tasks in cooperation with humans. The group has participated in many robotic EU framework projects and has been granted funded research from Tekes and the Academy of Finland for more than ten millions euros. Robotics research activity at BISG includes collaboration with processing industry.

The FoF Designer - Digital Design Skills for Factories of the Future
Partners in the EU DigiFoF Project, that aims to create an organizational structure to foster knowledge transfer between industry and academia, aiming to provide educational and experimental OMiLAB4FoF laboratories, where FoF-aspects can be taught practically or experimented with.
NEMO Day - May 2021
Collaborative robots (cobots) are becoming popular in several applications. Compared to industrial arm robots cobots have safety features and limitations that allow them to operate alongside humans. We will present the advantages and disadvantages of cobots and some use cases where collaborative features are useful and some cases where the collaborative features don’t bring increased value.


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