Factory of the Future

Factory of the Future

The Aalto Factory of the Future is a facility for innovation, research and education and comprises a space shared by humans, robots and production stations. The facility serves as a platform for projects in the area of advanced information technologies applied to future production systems. It focuses on achieving revolutionary high flexibility by exploiting the architecture of modular autonomous intelligent production units. The enabling technologies for that include: Artificial Intelligence, Industry 4.0 architecture, Industrial Internet of Things, edge/fog/cloud computing paradigms, virtual integration, digital twins, remote commissioning, operation and predictive maintenance, human-robot collaboration, simulation, virtual and augmented reality. We are targeting both, the manufacturing industries as well as process industries.

The Aalto Factory of the Future is currently in the set-up phase and actively looking for students, industry and academic partners to engage.
