Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control
Degree of Documentation
Very well documented
The Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control (EPIC), a long term cooperation between Fraunhofer IPA, IPT, IPK and Fraunhofer Austria and the Hungarian Partners EPIC Inno-Labs, SZTAKI and BME, was established with the objective to be a leading, internationally acknowledged and sustainable focus point in its field, representing excellence in research, development and innovation related to Cyber-Physical Production. The mission of EPIC - as a leading-edge knowledge centre of cyber-physical production systems - is to accelerate innovation, realize industrial solutions, train new generations of highly qualified professionals and support the development of a sustainable and competitive European manufacturing ecosystem.
In our joint exhibit, we provide an interactive map demonstrating an overview of pilot CPPS use-cases that have been developed within this cooperation. This interactive map visualizes the pilot factories and use cases within the EPIC consortium. By visiting it one will find information such as the locations of our pilot factories, the focus of the respective sites and the technologies and solutions that have been implemented to make the production of the future efficient and digital. The solutions were developed in a research environment and serve on the one side industrial companies as a look into the future to get ideas for increasing efficiency in their own production and on the other side as a learning environment for professionals as well as students.
Furthermore in a virtual lab-tour, the user can experience innovative solutions regarding human robot collaboration in the main pilot lab of EPIC , which is focusing on collaborative and advance robotics in assembly. It uses many different sensors and IT tools to illustrate and provide Industry 4.0 vision and solutions. One can look and walk around, and may also watch some videos about the different demonstrations and use-case.
