Postponed: 3rd OpenLabDay by CyberProtect and RoboShield

Event information: Due to the current developments around COVID-19 (coronavirus), the OpenLabDay was cancelled. An alternative date for the event is unfortunately not set yet, but will be announced soon. As soon as current information are available, they will be published here.

With RoboShield and CyberProtect we want to facilitate the change of small companies to Industry 4.0 in particular. A central challenge in order to be able to put a plant into operation is its safety and security. The following fields are important:

  1. Functional safety ("safety"):  Components of the plant, such as robots shall not injure anyone and must be in compliance with the policies
  2. IT security ("security"): Cyber attacks on production plants must be prevented
  3. Privacy ("privacy"):  Data security for the employees, working in increasingly networked and with sensors equipped environments must be ensured

The visitors of the Open Lab gain an insight into current research activities of the mentioned fields. You can discuss with the attendant researchers concrete questions or project ideas on the safety and security in the development or in the operation of production plants and apply for a quick check. Therein, the experts will analyse the questions from the application of the winners free of charge.
