In Guided AB researchers team up with industry to jointly develop innovative concepts for a flexible building automation and home networking in the context of smart homes. The objective of Guided AB is to create a flexible, easily configurable, and efficient system which is able to integrate existing solutions.
The team focusses on application-oriented research based on the technologies developed in the department Agents & Simulated Reality. It supports business processes in complex industrial settings with an intelligent mix of latest research results from the area of interactive visualization and artificial intelligence. Our research is not limited to a specific technology or business sector but tries to solve relevant cross-section business problems. At the moment, we are focussing on topics like agent-based simulation and interactive 3D visualization in different application domains like smart factories and smart buildings.
