WP2: Eco-efficient design and simulation tools

To consider sustainability when designing robotized automation is almost impossible with currently available design tools. WP2 is therefore integrating advanced mathematical models into these commercial design tools for sustainability simulation.

 WP2 will create detailed mathematical models  to simulate bi-directional energy flows and process energy costs. These models will be used for simulation, optimization and control design
