Vision for an open, distributed, real-time and secure production operating system

Vision for an open, distributed, real-time and secure production operating system

  • Duration:

FabOS is the IT backbone for the versatile automation of the factory of the future and the foundation of an ecosystem for data-driven services and AI applications. German companies can benefit from their deep domain knowledge and experience of industrial products, complex and high-quality manufacturing processes, and versatile and highly networked production systems (Internet of Things, Industry 4.0). This strong industrial competence is essential to develop AI solutions for industrial applications and to drive AI technology beyond the state of the art.
