The 4th industrial revolution is characterized by self-optimization, -coordination, and -configuration of its processes. It is expected to revolutionize various domains, ranging from Smart Factories to Healthcare, Energy, Mobility, Buildings and Cities. The Industry-of-the Future is characterized by a strong interaction between the physical and the virtual surroundings of its Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) that form the basis for intelligent connected production systems.
The SCHEIF project will investigate requirements of smart CPS environments for supporting diverse lesser controlled interactions between CPSs and human workers. SCHEIF targets enabling an evolution of CPSs making them capable of autonomously apprehending and understanding their environments. SCHEIF aims to design a hardware and software reference architecture, decision flows, and additional technical enablers for smart Decentralized Cyber-Physical Environments (D-CPE). As core concept, the project will integrate intelligent, context-aware, connected and responsive agents.
