The BIBA – Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik GmbH
The BIBA – Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik GmbH is one of the most internationally renowned research institutes in Germany.
An educational course on industry 4.0 called “SPRINT 4.0” was held at BIBA where Zerynth taught participants how to build industrial IoT applications.
As the main tool, they used real-life use cases with their 4ZeroPlatform – a Zerynth powered industrial toolset.
SPRINT 4.0, “Strategic Partnership for Industry 4.0” (2018 – 2020) is a European Project that works on filling the existing knowledge gap training university students on Industry 4.0 topics.
As Industry 4.0 is called the “4th Industrial Revolution” it is fundamental for universities to adopt actions for developing new skills in students to be employed in the companies adopting (or that will adopt shortly) the new applications or for starting new businesses in line with the new requirements. However, the skills necessary in the 4.0 era are still missing either in university curricula and in industry-standard training courses.
In addition to the topics addressed on industry 4.0, the TOI team also held a Zerynth and XinaBox workshop during the course.
BIBA University and Zerynth also collaborated on a research project called Lincoln project.
The Lincoln project is an EU Horizon 2020 research project, where Zerynth, TOI, and BIBA University are involved (among others). Since their connected marine vessels have the Zerynth-powered 4ZeroPlatform as one of the main components, the TOI team used them as an example of a successful Industrial IoT project, from start to finish.
