Product description

The »pICASSO« research project produced a robot cell for palletizing, whose components are laid out as cyber-physical systems (CPS): Each component is ­handled by a service that is recorded in the »Yellow Pages for Industrie 4.0« and readily available from anywhere in the world. In addition, there are purely virtual services. All services can be integrated for individual products - every product can e.g. call up the right object recognition service. Such flexible service integration makes use of all advantages of cloud solutions: They are more economical because they require less hardware on site. Complex calculations are outsourced into the cloud, which is more responsive, as virtually unlimited computational power can be added at the point of need. It is more secure, because confidential data remains with its legitimate owner. And it makes maintenance easier, because all services are centralized.
