Highlights - Cooperations


Digital Inventory & Connected Asset LifeCycle

Endress+Hauser, Hilscher, Pepperl+Fuchs, SAMSON and SAP have combined their forces for intelligent IoT Solutions
from the field device, via intelligent edge connectivity solutions up to the SAP IoT Platform.

You will see IoT concepts and real-life applications for Brownfield and Greenfield factories without touching the process control system

Solution in Detail:

  • Sensor know how to attach additional sensors to monitor the plant
  • HART Connectivity
  • Edge Connectivity, Aggregation and Preprocessing
  • IoT Platform for application development
  • Apps for Abrasion Detection and other analysis
  • Concept of the Digital Twin

Experience the Cognitive Factory

IBM and Hilscher present their cooperative solutions: Sensor data from the production line with rule-based integration and the netIOT Starter Kit with Watson IoT

Two new representative scenarios will be shown that can be applied to existing plants as well as to totally disruptive scenarios.

Solution in Detail:

  • Implementation of Cyber-physical Systems in the IBM Industry 4.0 Reference Architecture.
  • Easy, Rule-based integration of sensor data for Predictive Maintenance.
  • Central management in combination with autonomously working machines.
  • IBM BlueMix and Watson IoT demonstrate the variety of applications through a production application on the netIOT starter kit.
