Edge Cloud 4 Production: How Audi is revolutionizing factory automation

Smart Production
  • Central control via servers makes processes safer and reduces maintenance costs
  • Gerd Walker: “Edge Cloud 4 Production is the crucial step toward IT-based production.”
  • After successful testing in the Production Lab, three servers will take over worker support in the real laboratory of the Böllinger Höfe

Centralized, not decentralized; local servers, not hundreds of industrial PCs; software, not hardware: with the local server solution Edge Cloud 4 Production, Audi is initiating a paradigm shift in automation technology. After successful testing in the Audi Production Lab (P-Lab), three local servers will take over directing workers in the Böllinger Höfe. If the server infrastructure continues to operate reliably, Audi wants to roll out this automation technology – the only one of its kind in the world – for serial production throughout the entire Volkswagen Group.
