Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the important technologies for the implementation of the future vision "Industry 4.0". Both the technology and its tools are constantly being further developed and are not only remote and abstract ideas, but also instruments that can be used in everyday production.
The project "Interoperable Interfaces for Intelligent Production", II4IP for short, funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi), aims at the development of cross-industry OPC UA standards. You can find more about goals, measures and background information in the flyer of the same name.
OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) is the data exchange standard for secure industrial communication, independent of the manufacturer or platform, and thus a key technology for Industrie 4.0. The guideline helps German mechanical and plant engineering companies with the introduction and provides practical recommendations.
5G is a key technology for the industry: Reason enough for the VDMA to open up the potentials and application scenarios for mechanical engineering at the 5G CMM Expo from 8-10 October in Hanover. A special highlight: the Startup Innovation Sessions.
Digital-based business models that secure and extend industry 4.0 lead - Hartmut Rauen, Deputy Executive Director of VDMA, explains why a European cloud solution would be important for Germany and Europe and also explains the importance of 5G for industrial SMEs.
