Automation and robotics – using process design and artificial intelligence, the research teams at NOI promote digital transformation in factories and workshops and on construction sites. Our focus: low-cost manufacturing, adaptive production, ecology and the social aspects of work. The goal: machines that empower people, people that empower machines.

Farming and forestry in mountainous areas means dealing with scarce land, an adverse environment and hard work. Yet, automation can make life in the mountains easier and safer. This is what we are researching. Our goal is to make South Tyrol a world leader in precision agriculture, smart farming for sowing, breeding and harvesting, and steep terrain robotics. We have centuries of experience.
