Smart sensor and machine data transmitted securely via mobile networks

16 Nov 2023

The introduction of new technologies such as predictive maintenance and digital twin in manufacturing require an ever-increasing amount of high-quality data. These are collected, for example, via different sensor systems and made available for further processing by increasingly powerful software with the ultimate aim of enabling real-time analysis.

This lecture is intended to demonstrate the possibility of retrofitting sensors for this purpose in a simple and data-secure manner, as well as reading data from existing machine controls, storing it in databases and evaluating it using algorithms. Machine service data is available in real time via freely configurable cockpits.

Another focus is the exchange of OT / IT data via wireless interfaces such as 5G mobile networks.
