Neutral Cognitive Digital Automation Process Experimentation Infrastructure

In the neutral test factory SmartFactoryKL, the fog node is attached in the edge layer. This is integrated with the infrastructure of the individual production modules, more precisely with the industrial M2M (Machine-to-Machine) communication protocol according to the OPC (Open Platform Communication) specification, with which the production modules communicate with the higher-level MES (Manufacturing Execution System) system. These transmitted messages can be evaluated and processed in the fog node.
