Industrial internet research platform launched

Finnish research centre VTT and the University of Oulu are building a technology and pilot environment in which businesses and researchers can develop industrial internet solutions.

“The investment will allow us to create new, flexible and decentralised production solutions for the industrial internet and digital services in a dynamically networked environment. The environment will be used by hardware and software developers, service providers and suppliers, as well as end users", explains VTT project manager Marjaana Komi.

According to the partners, the platform will be the first to combine the core technologies of the industrial internet and 5G communications in an interoperable environment. It will act as a service and product development platform, allowing users to develop innovative services and products enabled by the industrial internet.

The environment will consist of four components. VTT will be responsible for intelligent environments for the industrial internet of properties and electronic pilot production, as well as the 5G solutions needed for telecommunications in the industrial internet. The University of Oulu will be responsible for the further development of the 3D printing processes available in its Fab Lab with the help of industrial robotics and sensors.
