Trends, visions, technological innovations and practical solutions under the Industry 4.0 umbrella developed in the environment of industrial testbeds. These were the themes of the Industry 4.0 Open Day, an event that on Wednesday 29 May opened the premises of the RICAIP Testbed Prague at the CIIRC CTU to directors and managers of manufacturing companies and offered nearly two hundred visitors a series of discussions on digitalization, automation or production optimization. Testbeds at the technical universities in Prague, Brno and Ostrava work together to create an infrastructure that is ready to respond to current and future challenges in manufacturing. Many companies have already tried it out, while many are just learning about the possibilities offered by these workplaces.

The event was jointly organised by the National Centre for Industry 4.0 (NCP4.0), the Research and Innovation Centre for Advanced Industrial Production (RICAIP) and the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of the Czech Technical University in Prague (CIIRC). The aim was to present a wide range of practical examples and opportunities that are currently available to companies when introducing innovations and new processes. Testbeds, i.e. experimental laboratories at the CIIRC CTU in Prague, CEITEC BUT in Brno and VŠB TUO in Ostrava, are mainly trying to help solve the challenges that companies face.

The full press release of the National Centre for Industry 4.0 is written in Czech.
