Things used in this project
in three months realize the control and the supervision of a real factory 4.0 that will work (and produce) for three days during a public exhibition.
Where and When
The exhibition, BIE Brescia Industrial Exhibition, will take place in ITALY Montichiari Brescia, 18 - 19 - 20 may 2017.
The plant, composed of eight machines, starting from a brass rod will produce a ball valve.
Each machine will be equipped with a raspberry PI3, on it Windows 10 IoT core, as operating system, and a PowerBerry APP that collect the data from the automation electronic (PLC, NC ..). Data, status signal, alarm are sent to a centralized POWER-KI application that store this information in a hybrid system constituted by a Data Base and a Knowledge Base (DB+KB).
In this way:
- each machine can be aware of the data of the other machines;
- many other POWER-KI app can be add to display, analyze, monitor and control the whole plant or the single machine.
Each IoT board will be able to provide a specific user interface to any human user that has this need through its native CLOUD capabilities.
This is a Work in progress. Stay tuned: http://www.LafabbricaInFiera.org
