The German Industrie 4.0 high-tech strategy started in 2011 to promote the next industrial revolution – the digitization and interconnection of machines, processes and workers in the industrial automation sector. Today, similar initiatives exist in a number of industrialized countries on an international level. The goal is to create smart factories where cyber-physical systems connect the real and virtual world. Smart machinery will communicate and collaborate in real-time over the Internet of Things (IoT) and enable intelligent human-machine interaction as well as a fully flexible and a highly efficient production.
The trend of digitization requires both companies and academia to innovate at a fast pace and to establish new platforms and standards which will also largely impact related industrial sectors such as logistics, construction, agriculture or professional entertainment.
