Discussing the Improvement of the Digitization of European Industry - CISTER Holds meeting of the largest European project to date
1, Sep, 2017
Productive 4.0 aims to achieve significant improvement in digitizing the European industry by means of electronics and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) – it is the largest European project to date, with 104 partners from 19 countries, with an overall budget of 114M euros.
Important research centers and universities (VTT, LTU, BME, etc), and representatives of large European companies such as Philips, Volvo, NXP Semiconductors, CEA (French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission), and SEB (a Swedish bank) attended a Productive 4.0 meeting, held at CISTER last September. CISTER was represented by its researchers Michele Albano, Cláudio Maia and David Pereira.
The goal of the meeting was to further develop the results of the successfully completed Arrowhead project and in the creation of a service oriented framework to support communications for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It appears that both systems developed by CISTER (QoS Manager and Event Handler) are required in a number of use cases, and CISTER has established collaborations to further research on inter-cloud QoS, and on heterogeneous support (like, combination of different messaging buses such as MQTT and AMQP) for event handling.
