The Automotive Use Case focuses on aspects of manufacturing that are common to not just the automotive sector but the scenario used to test those concepts utilise automotive machines and technologies. The two main topics investigated are the application of elastic manufacturing to Automotive supply chains, and the use of cyber-physical technologies to reduce production errors.
Within the Automotive use case production assets within the pilot can be monitored in real-time, whether components, products, machines or human operators. This is achieved through the use of the Ubisense Smart Factory system which implement a network of Sensors to track tagged products.
