The Chair of Open Dis­trib­uted Sys­tems (ODS) is look­ing for sup­port for pro­ject work in the area of indus­trial (industry 4.0) machine-to-machine (M2M) com­mu­nic­a­tion.

Work­ing field:

  • Setup and oper­a­tion of an Industry 4.0 net­work infra­struc­ture based on the stand­ards of the IEEE Time-Sens­it­ive-Net­work (TSN) work­ing group
  • Devel­op­ment of mech­an­isms for real-time, TSN-based M2M com­mu­nic­a­tion (data aggreg­a­tion, data ana­lysis and actor con­trol) with pro­gram­mable logic con­trol­lers for IoT gate­ways.
  • Ensur­ing the inter­op­er­ab­il­ity of the developed, real-time TSN-com­pat­ible IoT gate­ways with com­mer­cial TSN-com­pli­ant end­points and ter­min­als (includ­ing PLCs) for con­trolling and mon­it­or­ing indus­trial pro­cesses and assets
  • Integ­ra­tion of real-time IoT gate­ways for time-crit­ical com­mu­nic­a­tion with rel­ev­ant indus­trial actu­at­ors and sensors in the TSN net­work
  • Eval­u­ation and demon­stra­tion of the approaches, as well as pub­lic­a­tion of the res­ults
