SWISS SMART FACTORY

AT THE CENTRE OF THIS DEVELOPMENT IS THE SMART FACTORY AS A HIGHLY VERSATILE, EFFICIENT PRODUCTION SYSTEM – AND ITS INTEGRATION WITH THE INTERNET OF THINGS AND OTHER SERVICES.

SMART SENSORS & ACTUATORS

How can even the smallest components (products, devices in the field, jigs & fixtures, etc.) be enhanced with computing power, communication capabilities and sensor technology so as to facilitate their integration into Internet-of-Things networks? What standards are needed for interoperable communication and networking? What new business models can be created?

SMART NETWORKING & AUTOMATION

How can existing approaches to horizontal and vertical integration (such as digital product memory, Digital Twin and interoperable information interfaces) be further developed to innovative value-added networks?

AUGMENTED REALITY & VIRTUAL REALITY

How can one create clear insights and opportunities for people to intervene in heterogeneous, interconnected production systems? How can people be appropriately supported with technology without constantly patronising or monitoring them? What are the technological, organisational and legal framework conditions?

BIG DATA

How can the potential benefit to a company of comprehensive data acquisition and analysis be assessed and realised? What are the technological, organisational and legal framework conditions?

COBOTICS

How can CoBotic (Collaborative Robotics) be used to the benefit of employees and companies? What are the technological, organisational and legal framework conditions?

WORKPLACE OF THE FUTURE

What will the industrial workplace of the future look like? How will digitisation and the “sharing economy” change the working environment? What kind of jobs will (still) be necessary in the future?
