Fujitsu announces that its Internet of Things (IoT) testbed(1) solution model has got accreditation from Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). Developed through Fujitsu’s field trials and knowhow gained in its own production facilities, the Factory Operations Visibility and Intelligence model is intended to support the widespread use of IoT in production facilities.
Under the theme of bringing visibility to production facilities, the model for the testbed Fujitsu has proposed uses the cloud to integrate a variety of data, such as operating information captured in real time from sensors attached to equipment, as well as related production plans and work results.
Fujitsu designed this testbed so that multiple companies, each in their own specialized fields, can collaborate and build an ecosystem of sensors, analytic applications, and other technologies. Through field trials and actual operations, Fujitsu aims to strengthen these solutions to respond to the diverse needs of customers.
According to the release, Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Industrial Internet Consortium said, “Fujitsu’s Factory Operations Visibility and Intelligence Testbed is a huge step forward for the manufacturing industry.” “By simulating an actual factory, FOVI will make it possible to visual and analyze key manufacturing processes to improve operational efficiency.”
The testbed will be showcased at the Industrial Internet Consortium booth in the testbed demonstration area of the IoT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona, to be held September 16-18, 2015.
