Embedded systems play a central role in Industry 4.0. They form the heart of the smart factory, in which machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, smart metering and predictive maintenance set new standards in production. For Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, internet technology is central. Intelligent networking of electronic devices or machines replaces automated production with self-organized production. The direct communication of machines, systems, goods and people enables more efficient and cheaper production processes:
- Real-time based data analysis enables predictive maintenance
- Resources are conserved through predictable use
- Optimization of logistics and foresighted use of goods
- Efficient and simple production control, externally and on site
Individual IoT solutions for your project
Together with partners, emtrion develops software and hardware solutions for automated or self-organized data exchange in real time between sensors, machines and information platforms using wireless and wired communication technologies. Compact and powerful microcontrollers and microprocessors from well-known manufacturers offer the necessary communication interfaces, e.g. via Ethernet, as well as wirelessly through WLAN, LoRaWAN, NB-IoT or Bluetooth. Emtrion develops suitable applications for the control and maintenance of intelligent systems.
Safe and efficient systems for Industry 4.0
The development of an embedded IoT system requires thorough planning right from the start, taking suitable security concepts into account. Test runs in early development stages, realistic prototype design and diligent quality management ensure an efficient development process and safe systems in the field. emtrion supports you with hardware development, security concept creation and product maintenance.
