The Focus Topic “Industry 4.0” includes multiple innovative technologies in the area of industrial production. The focus is on intelligent and digitally connected systems. The full value chain from purchasing over logistics to manufacturing, are affected. However, two main areas of application are emerging: the smart factory and data-based services. In the smart factory, Industry 4.0 encompasses three levels of process automation: (1) condition monitoring of a machine or process, (2) data-based optimization through predictive intervention, and (3) self-organization of a system through self-diagnosis and autonomous machine decisions. Industry 4.0 also consists of a variety of other technologies such as augmented reality, digital twins, and mobile/collaborative robots.
Swiss industry is very well placed to play an efficient role in the developments surrounding Industry 4.0. We will explore the realm of Industry 4.0 in a joint event by Innovation Booster Robotics and Innovation Databooster.
The event is free to attend with a lunch and refreshments provided by the organizer.
