Automation trends: 6 steps to the connected factory

Automation trends: 6 steps to the connected factory
The phrase ‘smart factory’ was first coined in 2011 at German trade exhibition, the Hanover Messe. The term describes a highly digitalised environment in which machinery optimises and operates autonomously. Yet, despite being in our vocabulary for almost a decade, smart factories are not yet commonplace. Here, Stefan Reuther, Chief Sales Office at COPA-DATA, explains how the connected factory could be the first step of achieving digitalisation in manufacturing.

Exploring the common language for industrial automation

Exploring the common language for industrial automation
The open source Robot Operating System (ROS) has been around for over ten years and has thousands of developers building packages for it. In fact, according to a 2019 report by ABI Research, nearly 55% of the world's robots will include a ROS package by 2024. With this language growing in popularity, Neil Ballinger, Head of EMEA at EU Automation, discusses whether ROS is becoming the common automation language for robotics.

Will competing Fieldbus ever evolve into open-source architecture?

Will competing Fieldbus ever evolve into open-source architecture?
As it evolved into the multifaceted enterprise it is today, Uber realised that to help its designers stay in sync, it had to provide common, open-source design libraries for all its services. The approach proved successful. So, what can automation professionals learn from it? Here Neil Ballinger, Head of EMEA at EU Automation, considers the case of Fieldbus and whether or not it will ever develop into an open-source architecture.
