If you want to get an overview of how machines communicate horizontally and vertically via sensors, how individualized mass production works or how products get their own blueprints programmed into them, then you won’t want to miss this tour. Bringing the real and the virtual world together – that is the basic idea of Industry 4.0. Or, to put it more concretely: Industry 4.0 demands the synthesis of production and automation with IT. Find out how networking, integration and interdisciplinary cooperation actually work in practice. The companies we’ll take you to are pioneers of the fourth industrial revolution. When it comes to the Smart Factory, Virtual Reality or the Internet of Things, the vision of connecting all industrial processes has already become a reality.
