An operating system for factories
With FabOS, science and industry have together developed an operating system for the manufacturing industry that facilitates the integration of production technology with Information and Communication Technology (ICT). FabOS will also simplify the process behind capturing production data and enable the broader application of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This is the idea that brought the 26 collaborating project partners success in the AI innovation competition organized by the German Ministry for the Economy Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Along with other selected projects, FabOS was publicly unveiled on September 19.
