Industry 4.0 (I4.0) as a main revolutionary driver for ICT in manufacturing, combines Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to allow new and innovative ways to connect resources, processes and networks. Catching up with the ever growing trend of mobile solutions, mobility will also play a fundamental role in the I4.0 enabled workplace of the future by providing both workers and supervisors with critical data at the touch of a button (on-demand, in time, at the right place). Here, Singapore as a high-quality manufacturing location with its advanced and highly available mobile infrastructure provides a living lab for industrial solutions. By applying the use of additional sensors for environment perception it is possible to capture the as-is state of any product, process, or even the digital factory and it is manufacturing processes.
The SCIKE Singapore project combines the advantages of I4.0 solutions “Made in Germany” with a highly innovative ecosystem and sophisticated mobile IT infrastructure in Singapore.
