Industry 4.0 ”Smart Factory“ Simulation based on MSC Embedded Computing Products shown on Embedded World 2014
Industry 4.0 describes the ”Smart Factory“ which means a production process in which all components are networked down to the level of the sensors and actors. MSC is offering components for such scenarios, e.g. standard Computer-on-Module products (Q7, COM-Express, nanoRISC) but also displays, touch sensors and wireless products (WLAN, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Mobile Radio 2G/3G/4G) and customer-specific systems (I/O Controller, Controller for Bluetooth cordless Screwdrivers). Such a networked production line consisting of the stages Order Entry, Materials Handling and Manufacturing was shown as a functional model on the Embedded World Show 2014 in Nuremberg on the stand of MSC Technologies.
