WS10 - Enabling robust, converged networks for Industry 4.0

Workshop Organized by

Lukasz Wisniewski, inIT / TH-OWL, Germany and Jos Knockaert, EELAB/Lemcko - Ghent University,, Belgium and Philippe Saey, ESAT-ELECTA - KU Leuven, Belgium

Aims and Objectives

The aim of this workshop is to present and practically demonstrate the state of the art of some of the key enabling technologies of Industry 4.0, such as SPE, TSN and OPC UA PubSub, and to evaluate how these facilitate the convergence of OT and IT networks for Industry 4.0. This workshop will deliver high quality lectures by experienced domain experts, describing the potentials as well as the limits of the technologies mentioned above. To facilitate the interactive discussion, the workshop will be accompanied by several live demonstrations using industrially relevant equipment, that practically show the current possibilities of the mentioned technologies, a number of measurement tools and methods, and aspects of robustness such as EMI/EMC and redundancy.

Topics under this workshop include (but not limited to)

  • To provide insight in the state of the art by means of a lecture on each topic.
  • To evaluate properties and explore (current) limits by means of live experiments on industrially relevant demonstrators developed in the CINI4.0 ( project.
  • To present and discuss measurement tools and methods during the demonstrations.
  • To facilitate an interactive discussion.
