Cybercom and our Innovation Zone are involved in creating the smart factories of the future. In concrete terms, the Smart Factories project involves students building two physical factories in Gothenburg and Skövde. They are “mini-factories”, but the technology being loaded into them is anything but “mini”. For instance, the factories are fully automated.
Over the long run, Smart Factories are meant to inspire more digitalised, automated and sustainable industry. The project is being run by Göteborgs Tekniska College and was made possible by Cybercom and other corporate partners.
Smart Factories is being run through student projects, specifically intended to inspire young people to choose technical studies. In total, there will be about 21,000 hours of student jobs in fields including virtual commissioning, sustainable production and programming of automated processes.
Cybercom is contributing to the Smart Factories project in several ways, including data collection in the Cloud, AR visualisation and the factory assembly guide, the Smart Factories mobile app and the Machinebook service.
Goal 9: Sustainable industry, innovation and infrastructure. The goal is to build up a resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation. Smart Factories is working towards innovation that supports industrial adaptation to sustainability with more efficient use of resources.
