Join us for our PizzaSeminar in Berlin

CyberFactory#1 German National Demonstration

  April 26, 2022 at 12 pm c.t.

In a hybrid format in Berlin Mitte or via Zoom.

Note: The main language of the event will be German.

The factory of the future should be automated, interconnected and at the same time secure. To meet these requirements, however, a number of technical solutions must be devised. In particular, the aspect of security is often still neglected. The CyberFactory#1 project therefore aims at combining resilience against cyber and cyber-physical threats with optimization of manufacturing processes from the outset.

CyberFactory#1 is an international ITEA3 project in which BIGS is working with 27 partners from Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Finland, and Turkey to develop key capabilities for the factory of the future. In particular, key capabilities will be developed in the areas of (1) modelling and simulation of the factory of the future and its elements; (2) optimization of the factory of the future; and (3) methods to improve the resilience of the factory of the future to cyber and cyber-physical threats. The applicability of the results will be demonstrated in realistic use cases.

Among the German partners, end users (ASTI Mobile Robotics, Alstom), solution providers (Airbus CyberSecurity, LISA) and research institutions (OFFIS, Fraunhofer AISEC, the Berlin University of Applied Sciences) are working together on a single use case. It deals with a fleet of automated guided vehicle (AGVs), so-called transport robots. The goal of the CyberFactory#1 project for this use case is to increase the resilience of the fleet and to optimize the behaviour of the fleet.

In our PizzaSeminar we would like to present the partners’ work on the use case and discuss the developed key capabilities with you. If you are interested, please register by email to by April 25 indicating whether you would like to participate on-site in Berlin Mitte or via Zoom. For on-site participation a COVID-19 rapid test (2G Plus) is required, the pizza however is included as usual. The exact location of the PizzaSeminar or the Zoom link will be provided after registration.
