FIND

Eine neue Netzwerkarchitektur für das industrielle Internet

  • Duration:

The aim of the FIND project is to develop an integrated architecture for the industrial Internet of tomorrow; in particular, a network control capable of automatically mapping and monitoring the requirements of industrial applications for a variety of resources and networking possibilities. Manual interventions when configuring the network and during operations are kept to a minimum. In addition, using a variety of network technologies, it will also be possible to automatically provide defined service packages on an end-to-end basis. This approach, for example, permits a very flexible and efficient implementation of the complex, distributed control architectures where the underlying complexity is mainly abstracted from the application developers and plant operators. The system automatically compensates for the loss or failure of a single resource (for example, a control hardware), reducing unnecessary standstill time of the other units or machines and increasing the efficiency of the overall plant. Future systems currently in development like Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) or 5G should be easily integrated just as the many existing industrial communication technologies and devices to ensure seamless migration.
