Visual Computing Challenges of Advanced Manufacturing and Industrie 4.0

March/April 2015

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications magazine cover

The (r)evolution in Industrie 4.0 is being accelerated by the wide adoption of networking and Internet technology into traditional industries such as manufacturing shop floors aiming at CPPS for future factories. Furthermore, advances in additive manufacturing, modeling systems, physics-based simulation, and the computational representation of materials has created a framework to enable new intelligent factories characterized by adaptability, resource efficiency, and ergonomics. This special issue serves to familiarize the computer graphics community with the Industrie 4.0 and Industrial Internet initiatives and mobilize more computer graphicists to initiate research and application development in this emerging and attractive area.
