OPTimised Industrial IoT and Distributed Control Platform for Manufacturing and Material Handling
Today’s control of industrial processes is done in a highly centralised and hierarchical manner. Future concepts like component based and collaborative automation require much more distributed control functionalities. To support this development, OPTIMUM addresses enhancing the aspects of distributed control, adaptation of IoT technologies to industrial needs, enhancement of control and assistance applications by context and location awareness as well as common-model based 3D engineering and supervision. Thus it will support partners and industry in general to get ready for Industry 4.0 challenges.
