The next generation of services and applications
Our vision is to enable the next generation of IIoT services and applications, such as video streaming, immersive augmented reality/virtual reality, swarms of production robots, autonomous vehicles and infrastructures and micronetworks.
Of special interest are common communication and computer infrastructures, particularly in environments with heterogeneous components. Achieving this goal requires connecting multiple IIoT platforms to one another, such as computing, communication and service automation systems. These types of connected systems help lower energy consumption and improve data protection and data control since the computations can be integrated into the design of the underlying infrastructure as early as possible.
Typical examples are decentralized edge computing based on open-source solutions, semantic IIoT interoperability, IoT onboarding, real-time system adaptation and computations built into the network.
