Factories of the Future Conference 2016: Materialising Factories 4.0

ARTEMIS-IA visited the first Factories of the Future Conference 2016 on September 15 and 16 in Brussels. More than 80 speakers discussed major Industry 4.0 themes, illustrating these discussions with key examples from ‘Factories of the Future’ projects. Also many references to Cyber-Physical Systems were made in the event.

EFFRA Chairman Maurizio Gattiglio unveiled the ‘Factories 4.0 and Beyond’ strategic working document, in which the following relation with CPS is described:

The implementation of Cyber-Physical Systems imply wide application of IoT and smart embedded devices in manufacturing”, and: “Factories interact with the urban surroundings in terms of energy exchange and integrated demand-side response. Pervasive industrial adoption of the developed solutions asks for automated and distributed Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and ICT systems”.
