Bringing a state-of-the-art IoT architecture online in Aachen


In Germany, a dynamic industrial partnership is bringing together researchers from one of Europe’s most renowned engineering institutes and advanced technologies from four of the world’s top IT and industrial vendors. The partnership, based at the eLAB at RWTH Aachen University, is building a generic IoT architecture that will become the basis for a turnkey manufacturing solution. The group is using an actual production line at the eLAB to demonstrate how the IoT architecture will work.

The eLAB project will showcase a manufacturing scenario–the production of Lithium-Ion battery cells for electric vehicles. Researchers at the university are building out a sophisticated assembly line using a production-grade IoT platform developed by HPE, OSIsoft, PTC, and National Instruments.

The generic, joint architecture will demonstrate how state-of-the-art industrial IoT solutions can be used to improve production. Three use cases will be highlighted:

  1. Data integration and condition monitoring based on live manufacturing data as well as historical data.
  2. Increasing product quality by focusing on parameters that determine product outcome, as well their dependencies.
  3. Augmented reality to improve maintenance by plant operators.

The project has broad implications for all kinds of manufacturing firms interested in leveraging data and insights from IoT sensors on the industrial edge, and turning them into actionable intelligence that can drive automation, reduce unplanned downtime, improve transparency for safety and compliance, and ultimately deliver better efficiency and product quality.
