AUTOWARE will establish and push forward an open CPPS ecosystem, allowing SMEs to access all the different components in order to develop digital automation cognitive solutions for their manufacturing processes. AUTOWARE will connect several initiatives for strengthening the European SME offer on cognitive autonomous products and leveraging cognitive autonomous production processes and equipment towards manufacturing SMEs.

Manufacturing SMEs which will be able to develop digital cognitive automation systems thanks to a facilitated access to several ICT tools.

Automation and machine tool/robot providers which can incorporate open CPS trusted platforms as part of next generation smart production line components and solutions.

Developers of cognitive (learning, analysis, knowledge management capability services) and automation apps for autonomous service support.

Providers of cloud and HPC simulation and computation services that could host the operation of advanced cognitive services.


AUTOWARE high-level objective is to build an open consolidated ecosystem and single community that will lower the barriers of SMMEs for cognitive automation application development and application of autonomous manufacturing processes.

Leveraging reference heterogeneous communications and networking architecture to support connectivity & data management in CPPS.

Provisioning of robust business development frameworks that will drive a business-oriented and RoI rooted approach to migration towards digital automation.

Facilitate the growth of a digital multi-sided ecosystem through the set-up of an open ecosystem to facilitate the access to digitalization technologies to SMMEs.

Alignment with major international standards and integration with key experimental infrastructures and ICT for Manufacturing innovation hubs.
