As we are actively working on the subject, Industry 4.0 and Cyber Physical Systems, we investigate existing projects in Germany.
Industry 4.0, as we understand it, is based on the connection of technology. Thus it is possible to create completely new user stories, simply by combining two acting members. As an example, imagine to be the only person having a cell phone. You can’t call anybody. When there is a second person that has a cell phone, you can then start to interact with this person. It is then the link between this person and yourself, that is enhancing your overall capacity. With that picture in mind, it then becomes clear, what effect it will have, once you have internet on your cell phone, now smart phone. You can start to interact with the whole world, and countless possibilities become reality.
The German Government is funding Industry 4.0 efforts. On the following pages you can find additional information about how they see Industry 4.0, what their interest is, and find some inspiration:
- Project for the future: Industry 4.0
- Platform for Industry 4.0
Please let us know what you think about it in the comments or write us an email.
We are looking forward to an open discussion.
