How Information and Communication Technologies will support future intelligent technical systems, can be seen in the field of production technology in the Lemgo SmartFactoryOWL. The resulting field of action is called “Industry 4.0” within the framework of the high-tech strategy of the Federal Government. In the “SmartFactoryOWL", the Institute Industrial IT (inIT) of the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University and the Fraunhofer IOSB-INA, are exploring and testing new system technologies for adaptive, reconfigurable, and energy efficient production systems that are for example based on service-oriented architecture (SOA). Machine learning of system models, human-machine interaction with localised services, scientific and technical issues of system integration or the reliable remote control of remote equipment via the Internet and mobile communications are an issue. The video shows, how a smart production module with a PLC and a integrated OPC-UA Server can be controlled and monitored by a Smartwatch.
