The Connected Factory project about Industry 4.0 will be lead from EETAC

The Broadband Networks and Services research group at EETAC (Castelldefels UPC Campus) will be leading the Connected Factory project within the Looming Factory initiative, an alliance between R+D+i groups from academia and industry.

The goal of Looming Factory is to accelerate the introduction in the market of emergent technologies aligned with the needs and new challenges of the digital transformation within the industrial sector: intelligent and connected factories, interconnection of machines and systems, the operational integration of the production environment, and the exchange of information with the logistics and distribution systems. The alliance, fostered by the RIS3CAT programme of  Generalitat de Catalunya and FEDER (European Union) comprises four different projects with a global investment of 4 million euros, in a time frame of three years:

  • Smart Factory: advanced monitoring of industrial facilities.
  • Robots on Factory: challenges caused by the introduction of robotics in production lines. 
  • Connected Factory: advanced communications tecnologies in industrial environments (5G, Industrial Ethernet, Time-Sensitive Networking).
  • Factories of the Future: demonstrators of the other three projects.

Connected Factory will be lead by Associate Prof. David Remondo (BAMPLA) from the Castelldefels Campus of UPC.
