Embedded Systems - Processors for Intelligent Production Systems
In almost all areas of life, we encounter embedded systems in the form of microprocessors or a small computer, which usually perform important functions invisibly. We are familiar with these systems from:
However, many of these microprocessors are also installed in modern machines and technical systems. The main tasks of these little helpers are the regulation, control, and monitoring of important functions.
In the context of Industry 4.0 production, the Internet of Things is turning the previously isolated processors into a digitally networked unit. They can communicate directly with each other via the Internet and intelligently process the data they generate themselves. Additionally, installed sensor technology complements and expands the possibilities in the Internet of Things, a modern production plant.
