Key Note: IIoT platform: The cloud imperative in manufacturing

Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Björn Hein Hochschule Karlsruhe / Fakultät für Wirtschaftswissenschaften, Professor für Intelligente Produktion und Cloud-Robotik

The public cloud offers numerous advantages, such as dynamic sourcing of resources or access to valuable applications such as IoT, artificial intelligence or data analytics. The question is, what is an appropriate solution for the unique environment of each enterprise. We will get an insight on the different aspects of cloud solutions

  • Data pre- / processing
  • Full analytics


Special technology focus: EDGE Computing vs Cloud Computing

Dr. Daniel Gaida, Gruppenleiter Software Solutions/Künstliche Intelligenz, Hahn-Schickard-Gesellschaft für angewandte Forschung e.V.

IIoT platform technology offers advances in industrial automation. Each machine on the shop floor will carry a multitude of sensors, which are necessary for standard operation. Often, however, the sensor readings are not available to the outside, remaining within the internal control loops of the machine and its PLC.

  • Solving the real-time challenge with analytics
  • AI-based control (on the edge)
  • Connectivity


Use Cases

  • Big Data and AI analytics
  • Advanced automation & robotic
  • Operations reporting
