The IoT4DigitalTwin project is part of the European IoT4Industry initiative within the Horizon 2020 programme. Geprom Connecting Industries and Gefasoft GmbH have formed a consortium with the aim of implementing a digital twin in Celsa (a private Spanish multinational and leader in the metallurgical sector) and continuing to advance in the field of industry 4.0 with more flexible, personalised and efficient processes.
The main objectives of the IoT4Industry call are to increase productivity, profitability and innovation capabilities of SMEs by accelerating their access to industry 4.0 and digital transformation. It also seeks to improve market access to new products and services provided by technology SMEs, strengthening their innovation and growth.
European industry is in a constant process of modernisation. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies have already entered manufacturing and this trend will increase in its different phases and processes of Industry 4.0. Europe is continuously promoting investment in plant modernisation, which includes the introduction of new ICT technologies and in particular IoT, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity.
IoT4DigitalTwin is a 12-month project that will end in November 2020 with the final achievement of a standard and easily scalable product and technology that can be quickly replicated in other production centres and other sectors.
