Kari Tammi: Data availability makes a difference in mechatronics design

A digital twin is a digital replica of a physical entity. In his Installation Talk, Associate Professor Kari Tammi shows how a digital twin can be used to design more efficient, sustainable and better products for the future.

Kari Tammi

Kari Tammi was appointed as associate professor with tenure in the Department of Mechanical Engineering on 1 February 2020. The field of his professorship is design of mechatronic machines.

His research interests include mechatronics, hybrid energy systems and autonomous systems. His research team works to improve energy efficiency and reduce life-cycle costs with modern tools such as digitalisation and industrial internet. According to Tammi’s vision, the energy and environmental efficiency of many machines can be enhanced by improving their systems of control and power transmission.

Tammi completed his doctoral degree in 2007 at Helsinki University of Technology. His doctoral thesis focused on systems and automation technology.  In 2010-2015, he worked as research professor at VTT, Technical Research Centre of Finland. In 2015, he was appointed to a fixed-term position as associate professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

In Aalto University, Tammi has been teaching courses on the design and mechanisms of mechatronic machine systems. In the new, wide-ranging Master’s Programme in Mechanical Engineering, he is responsible for two courses: Mechatronic Machine Design and Vehicle Mechatronics. He has authored more than 90 scientific articles, supervised ten doctoral theses and more than 60 master's theses.
