Project Productive 4.0 aims the digitalisation of the European Industry


The project will officially end in April of 2020.

The Research Centre in Real-time & Embedded Computing Systems (CISTER) from ISEP is working on the project Productive 4.0 (the largest European project do date). There are 104 partners from 19 countries, with an overall budget of 114M euros, involved in this research.The kick off of Productive 4.0 project was held in Infineon facilities in Dresden (Germany). The main objective is to achieve significant improvement in digitalising the European industry by means of electronics and Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

Due to its characteristics, this project has been chosen by the European Commission as a Lighthouse Initiative, since it builds on well identified market pull demands, structured upon visionary solutions, with a very strong pan-European dimension and a robust business plan. CISTER will continue its previous work on the highly successful Arrowhead framework developed during the Arrowhead project.

This Service Oriented framework will be the cornerstone for all communications among industrial devices on the Productive 4.0 future manufacturing environment. CISTER leads the work on providing solutions for Quality of Service (QoS) for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments. The Productive 4.0, which is being led by Infineon, combines a very strong group of European companies like Volvo, Ericsson, Thales, Philips, STMicroelectronics, SAP, Bosch, NXP Semiconductors, ABB, etc.
