Technology in a broad sense is driven by developments in semiconductor technology, particularly with respect to the computational power of devices and systems, as well as sensor technology. The progress of semiconductor technology has demonstrated an exponential curve since the middle of the previous century, representing Moore's Law. Consequently, it is of utmost importance to bridge the gaps between disciplines in the fields of control, automation, and robotics. Moreover, data-driven approaches need to be combined with model-based design. This will lead to new digital twinning and automated design approaches that provide major opportunities. Furthermore, this necessitates the redefinition of our university system.
