Industrial Digitalisation and System Intelligence Research Group (IDSI)

Industrial Digitalisation and System Intelligence Research Group (IDSI)

The IDSI group, currently led by Prof. Dirk Scharefer focuses on use-inspired cross-sector research that is steered by three sub-groups:

  • Industrial AI
  • Robotics and Automated Systems
  • Communications, Networks and Embedded Systems

The fusion of these three sub-groups creates strong intra- and inter-disciplinary links that strengthen research and increase its impact. We work in close partnership with the stakeholders and end-users in the Automotive, Aerospace, Space, Energy, Telecommunication, IT, Agri-Food and Healthcare sectors. The firm industry-academic partnership helps us develop innovative solutions and rapidly test our technologies.

Internally, we collaborate with researchers in the School of Computer Science, School of Life Sciences, School of Mathematics and Physics, School of Sport and Exercise Science, Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology, National Centre for Food Manufacturing, Lincoln International Business School, Lincoln Medical School and Lincoln International Institute for Rural Health.

Please visit our sub-groups for more details.
