Specification of the Manufacturing Automation Field TrialRef: HURRAY-BTR-0131 Publication Date: 1, Dec, 2001
This document specifies the manufacturing automation field trial, which is intended to demonstrate technical feasibility of the RFieldbus system in real industrial environments, the benefits for end-users and the opportunities for technology developers. The manufacturing automation field trial will involve the use of traditional distributed computer control (DCCS) and 'factory-floor-oriented' multimedia (e.g. voice, video) application services, supporting both wired and wireless/mobile communicating nodes (mobile vehicles, for example). It is also a major goal that the manufacturing automation field trial provides a suitable platform for RFieldbus timing (e.g. guaranteeing deadlines for time-critical tasks) and dependability (e.g. reliability) requirements to be tested and assessed.
