IDiAL (Institute for Digital Transformation of Application and Living Domains) is set up as a joint and interdisciplinary initiative of the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering and the Faculty of Computer Science of the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts in 2017. The IDiAL Institute works on processes, methods and tools for the development of Intelligent Technical Systems - primarily for mechatronic and embedded systems. Such processes, tools and methods are tailored, optimized and finally validated within industrial applications in the relevant industries. For this reason, a close cooperation with both academia and industry is necessary. Therefore, IDiAL is positioned as a house of competence for the transfer, adaptation and optimization of scientific results into industrial application.
