Conference - Networked Control & Automation 4.0 - 2019

  • KU Leuven Technologiecampus Gent 1 Gebroeders de Smetstraat Gent, Vlaanderen, 9000 Belgium (map)

After our successful conference day in 2018, with more than 130 participants, the

INCASE project would like to invite you on the 28th of May, 2019 to our next conference day on

“Networked Control & Automation 4.0”.

Just like last year, the conference day features a market place with 10+ stands of leading automation suppliers and 2 parallel tracks of lectures on state of the art technologies.

We totally renewed half of the program of last year, and updated a number of topics that are logically re-programmed. In this way, the conference day is interesting for both returning visitors (yes, you missed half of the lectures of last year!) and for people who sign up for the first time.

The first track is on “industrial data communication”, focusing on PROFINET industrial networks. Some highlights:

·        A detailed lecture on technologies emerging in industry the next years (TSN – Time Sensitive Networking – and 5 G) by Karsten Schneider (chairman of PI International)

·        A double lecture on “sporadic and not predictable network issues” with interesting use cases from German automobile manufacturers (Rene Heidl, Indu-Sol Germany)

·        Detailed updates on diagnostic tools for troubleshooting and preventive maintenance, redundancy, IO-Link technology, etc.

The second track is on “integrated design”, focusing on industrial applications of code generation from MATLAB-Simulink, co-simulation integrating CAD and system dynamics using Siemens NX, virtual commissioning, and digital twin technology. Technology is changing quickly in this track!

A slot of 3 lectures focuses on predictive analytics and anomaly detection:
a detection method based on the current signature of electrical rotating machines (Bram Corne, Orbits), an overview of methods for detecting anomalies and trends (Jan Verhasselt, Yazzoom), and overall implementation in edge or cloud computing.
