With the growing spread of sensors and the networking of plants with complex software systems, the flood of data in production is increasing. Even the mere recording and structured storage of such large amounts of data involves a considerable effort. The hoped-for transparency is often replaced by chaotic conditions. Only structured data processing offers the prerequisites for extracting truly relevant information and gaining knowledge.
Fraunhofer IPT develops efficient concepts for fast data processing and evaluation and transforms them into real-time applications. The first step is to record the data using suitable communication technologies such as 5G and to forward the data using suitable protocols and interfaces.
Data linking, data preprocessing and the secure handling of valuable production data play just as important a role for us as questions about autonomous decision-making using Big Data algorithms and corresponding software solutions.
