Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, cyber physical production systems – these buzzwords continue to drive innovations in industrial automation. Electronics, sensors and actuators are the backbone for these innovations.

But what do these so-called “Smart Systems” have to look like in future? What are the requirements for the future industry? What added value do future „Smart Systems“ need to offer? Which technologies have to be developed? Which functionalities are needed in future “Smart Systems”?

In view of these questions, the European Platform on Smart System Integration (EPoSS) invites you to the

EPoSS Workshop on Smart Systems for the Automated Factory

 at MESAP, Corso Stati Uniti, 38 10128 Torino, Italy on 5 September 2017 from11:00-19:00 (followed by a dinner and a site visit to COMAU and/or Maserati in the morning of 6 September).

To be able to fully assess all aspects of an “Automated Factory”, the workshop aims at the EPoSS community as well as at Industry 4.0-related European Technology Platforms. Cross-platform and pan-European discussions shall guarantee inspiring and innovative discussions.

Regarding the programme, different interactive formats shall ensure highly effective discussions. The preliminary agenda will be as follows:

  • Introduction to the Factory of the Future and its vision on forthcoming automation requirements (Keynote speeches from Technology Platforms)
  • Condensed demands for needed automation technologies (intra-logistic, process automation, virtual shadow enabling e.g. condition monitoring, sensor fusion and Big Data Analytics, man-machine-interaction, security, etc.)
  • Requirements on future electronics, sensors and actuators incl. factory integration  

The final agenda will be circulated in a timely manner. The results of the workshops will not only serve as an input for the EPoSS Annual Forum 2017 on “Smart Systems for an Automated World”, taking place in October this year, but will also be condensed into Position Papers that will provide a point of reference for shaping the European Framework Programme 9.

To register please send an informal e-mail to Ms. Davina Wenninger (Davina.Wenninger@vdivde-it.de).

We look forward to your participation!
