The rapid digitalization of production and automation is crucial to the successful implementation of the visionary concepts of Industrie 4.0. Among other things, this entails a secure and efficient communication infrastructure that automatically adapts to the requirements of each application; an infrastructure that enables the efficient networking of the production machines, products, and innovative data services; and, one that easily and safely supports the introduction of new industrial applications. Also, the increasing use of wireless technologies and the steady progress in the convergence of IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology) present special challenges.

Vision

The FIND consortium is composed of leading proponents from industry and research who have joined together to develop the foundation for the industrial Internet of tomorrow based on the latest network technologies from the fields of industrial automation, Internet, and 5G wireless communications. The consortium members include: DFKI (lead manager), Robert Bosch GmbH, Festo AG & Co. KG, the Institute Industrial IT (inIT) of the OWL University of Applied Sciences in Lemgo, the HMS Technology Center Ravensburg GmbH, Bosch Rexroth AG, rt-solutions.de GmbH, Siemens AG, the Technical University of Dresden, and the University of Passau.

Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research

With a total volume of € 6.97 million, the BMBF supports the publicly funded project FIND with a funding share of 61%.
