Cyber-physical production systems
The aim of this project is to make available to students, young researchers and overall practitioners, didactic materials to educate them regarding the roots, expectations and challenges of the new technologies that are shaping the future of Industry 4.0 and the smart manufacturing concept. For this, an online course regarding Cyber Physical Production Systems (CPPS) will be created. The idea is to design an end-to-end course, tackling CPPS basics, the smart manufacturing context and retrofitting with current technologies, evolution from current SCADA/MES to CPPS and applicability of novel CPPS R&D technologies in real industrial scenarios. Also, advance materials focus in standardization issues, privacy and security of CPPS, Cloud/Edge Computing, Human-Machine Interaction, energy harvesting and data analytics. The course will be based in video tutorials for theoretical presentation of topics, and practical hands-on exercises, for code management, deployment and testing.
