... paving the way to smart factories, Industry 4.0 and IIoT
Communication and information technologies (ICT) for industrial use must satisfy peculiar requirements that cannot be found in other traditional applications. ICT infrastructures that have to work reliably 24/7, such as those found in automation and process control systems, smart factories and cyber-physical systems (CPS) in general, have to grant a very high degree of resilience, safety/security and real-time performance. CNR-IEIIT has the needed know-how and experience to study and develop advanced solutions for industrial computer systems and networks and to pave the way for a new generation of applications in these areas. In this framework, main research topics include (but are not limited to) digital twins, model-based s/w engineering, industrial cybersecurity, new generation WSNs, Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) and real-time multicore embedded systems.
