The first introduction

Big Data is the oil of the future – data is both the most important resource and the lubricant in the digitalised industry 4.0, in which the physical world is to be connected with the digital world. This sounds a bit like science fiction – but it is already present!

Because the most important building block of Industry 4.0 is already in use: Cyber Physical Systems are precisely the technical marvels that can connect the world you can see with the virtual world of data and information.

Cyber Physical Systems are essentially the sensory organs of information technology, attached to future-proof machines and products. They collect impressions and processes of their environment and subsequently provide exactly the data that makes the production process ever more efficient and better.

If Industry 4.0 is the future of the manufacturing industry, then Cyber Physical Systems are the cornerstone. This chapter will introduce you to exactly this basic building block.

The practical relevance – for this you will need the knowledge and skills

Cyber Physical Systems is one of the most important function carriers of Industry 4.0, with an enormous field of application. The knowledge you learn here can help you in industrial production and logistics, but also in medical, traffic, defence or environmental technology and many other fields – in principle, wherever Industry 4.0 is applicable.

Learning objectives and competences at a glance

In this chapter you will learn to understand Cyber Physical Systems and how to classify them in Industry 4.0. For this purpose, you will first be introduced to the terms and general functions. Furthermore, the technological basics are discussed and the areas of application and some concrete examples in industrial use are introduced. A reference to current problem areas will round off your basic knowledge of the topic.

Learning Objectives

Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) as part of Industry 4.0 can be perceived and understood.

Know the technological requirements and components of CPS and be able to link them together.

Get to know the application areas of CPS in industry, society and individual use.

Know and be able to weigh up the opportunities and risks of CPS.
