Summer School 2020        

Smart Production Systems & Robotics

A new type of industrial process forms an important part of the next industrial revolution, a trend also called Industry 4.0: Smart Production Systems (SPS) integrate smart technologies into production processes, aiming at a new form of automation. Technologies like VR and robotics are connecting the cyberworld to reality and are thereby offering exciting possibilities in the realm of smart production. Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) help overcome the limits of human strength and coordination and provide answers to pressing questions of industrial societies.
