Today's manufacturing and assembly systems have to be flexible to adapt quickly to an increasing number and variety of products, and changing market volumes. To manage these dynamics, several production concepts (e.g., flexible, reconfigurable, changeable or autonomous manufacturing and assembly systems) were proposed and partly realized in the past years.(More)
Chronic conditions like diabetes mellitus (DM) leading to altered metabolism might cause cardiac dysfunction. Hyperglycemia plays an important role in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications including accumulation of methylglyoxal (MG), a highly reactive alpha-dicarbonyl metabolite of glucose degradation pathways and increased generation of advanced(More)
Currently, there is a high demand for autonomous industrial production systems. This paper outlines the development of a cognitive system for autonomous robotic welding. This system is based on dimensionality reduction techniques and Support Vector Machines, allowing the system to learn to separate between acceptable and unacceptable welding results within(More)
Diabetic cardiomyopathy is a myocardial disease caused by diabetes mellitus unrelated to vascular and valvular pathology or systemic arterial hypertension. Clinical and experimental studies have shown that diabetes mellitus causes myocardial hypertrophy, apoptosis and necrosis, and increases interstitial tissue. The pathophysiology of diabetic(More)
Laser beam welding is the method of choice for the high-quality joining of materials. However, for industrial production these systems have to be set up and calibrated manually with much effort. Our objective is to apply intelligent data processing that results in a cognitive technical system that can learn how to weld, speed up the configuring process, and(More)
Heart and vascular endothelial cells from human pluripotent stem cells are of interest for applications in cell therapy and cardiovascular disease. Differentiation protocols are now sufficiently refined that production of cardiomyocytes, endothelial-and smooth muscle cells is fairly efficient and reproducible. Genetically marked hESCs have been produced in(More)
