The objective of Area 3 is to establish a secure, real-time communication infrastructure for adaptive production systems. Current standards are taken into account as far as possible. This requires a standardized communication technology that allows a uniform presentation of all necessary entities. Based on this, algorithms and methods for ideally predictive process control will be developed. In this context, possibilities for the integration of clamping and gripping components into the digitalization of the production and its pre- and post-processes are designed and developed in the sense of a flexible but nevertheless highly automated production. Safety aspects are also examined here, as they are of key importance for the successful application of these technologies.
