Aalto Factory of the Future

Aalto Factory of the Future

The Aalto Factory of the Future is a facility for innovation and education of future industrial automation, industry 4.0 and beyond. It is a space shared by humans, robots and production stations, which 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.

We are interested in enabling technologies for production systems that include: Artificial Intelligence, Industry 4.0 architecture, Industrial Internet of Things, wireless communication (5G, Wifi6), edge/fog/cloud computing paradigms, virtual integration, digital twins, remote commissioning, operation and predictive maintenance, human-robot collaboration, simulation, virtual and augmented reality. We invite companies and other stakeholders to collaborate with us!
