  • “Industrie 4.0 – Cyberphysical systems” seminar

    July 18, 2017

    Cyberphysical systems (CPS) are an essential component of Industrie 4.0. At its core, a cyberphysical system is an embedded system that can provide part of its functionality through web services. In this technology seminar, you will gain insights into cyberphysical systems and the underpinning concepts from the Internet of Things and the Internet of Services. You will also receive an overview of cyberphysical systems and their potential applications in production. Particular emphasis is placed on the use of smart tags in the production process; these tags can cost-effectively retrieve a range of sensor data from production processes.

  • “Industrie 4.0 – App development” seminar

    September 12, 2017

    Apps use cloud platforms to provide lean IT functionalities that can also be used in the production environment. In this technology seminar, you will get an overview of app development in the production environment and the tools you need to develop your own apps. A comprehensive demonstration using the Virtual Fort Knox platform for production-related IT applications will show you how to develop your own apps and make them available via a cloud platform.

  • “Industrie 4.0 – Equipment integration” seminar

    October 17, 2017

    Integrating the machines and systems of the shop floor into the IT environment is crucial to the collection and evaluation of production data. In this technology seminar, you will gain insights into how you can use Industrie 4.0 approaches to take the latest production data from the shop floor and quickly make it available for further processing. Experts from Fraunhofer IPA will present a variety of approaches that you can use to read data from plant- and machine control systems. A thorough sample scenario using the Virtual Fort Knox integration platform for production-related IT applications will show you how to retrieve production data from the shop floor.

  • “Industrie 4.0 – Human-machine interaction” seminar

    November 16, 2017

    Increasingly connected and smart production environments are transforming the role people play in production. This means new requirements and new functions for Human Machine Interfaces (HMI). In order to provide the best support for rapid decision making, there is a need to present extensive and complex relationships intuitively. Closer cross-company collaboration calls for new communication technologies. Meanwhile, there are interesting developments coming out of the rapid development of mobile devices and alternative input mechanisms such as gesture and speech recognition as well as audio analysis. This seminar showcases current and future requirements and developments for human-machine interaction. It also supplies tried-and-tested, innovative solutions for HMI design and engineering for Industrie 4.0.
