The automotive industry is in the midst of a significant change. Increased demands on environmental sustainability, more customer demand for individualization and connectivity as well as shorter model cycles are major challenges, opportunity and a risk. This requires disruptive technologies in production lines to replace rigid systems through flexible ones. Automation is a major enabler for building smarter manufacturing with the Internet-of-Things (IoT). The transition to human-robot collaboration, more open network architectures and data sharing of IoT poses challenges in accident prevention, IT-security and design of machinery and beyond. Nevertheless the combination of IoT, Big Data, and M2M optimization will bring profound opportunities. B&R already offers today future-proof solutions for the automation of tomorrow.
