At EDI we believe (vision) that our future world will be even more connected, digital and automated than ever, forming various ambitious challenges, e.g. personalized predictive and preventive healthcare (incl. digital avatar); flexible, efficient, connected and autonomous (zero defect) factories; safe (zero fatalities), affordable, sustainable, connected, cooperative, automated and clean (zero emissions) mobility; secure, safe and trustable connectivity and system interoperability; to name a few, impacting the everyday life of people as well as all business sectors.
As EDI is among the highest rated scientific institutions in Latvia specializing in Smart Embedded Cooperative Systems (SECS), we have a unique perspective, expertise and capacity to contribute in solving the above mentioned challenges on Latvian and global scale. Therefore, we see our mission to perceive the world and design a better future by creating new knowledge, developing innovative technologies and demonstrating their practical significance in real life applications.
Our goal is to become internationally recognized RTO and apply our SECS expertise in mobility, industry 4.0, health, digital life and space domains while working in following research directions:
– Extremely precise event timing incl. space domain
– Remote sensing and space data processing
– Robotics and machine perception
– Signal processing and embedded intelligence
– Smart sensors and IoT

Our objectives to achieve the goal are in line with challenges and ambitions of LR and EU development policies,, (e.g . creation of innovative solutions for digitalization of industry to increase its competitiveness; enhancement of data-based digital life knowledge to ensure well-being of society; development and transfer of innovative ICT technologies to provide growth of knowledge- intensive economy, etc.).
