Cybernetic manufacturing aims for flexible and adaptive manufacturing operations locally or globally by using integrated technologies that can combine the advanced computing power with manufacturing equipment. In recent years, research on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), and Big Data have been active in such areas like transportation, smart home, robotic surgery, aviation, defence, critical infrastructure, etc. The advancements in CPS, IoT, and Big Data also positively affected manufacturing in form of Cyber-Physical Production Systems, Industrial Internet of Things, and Big Manufacturing Data Analytics. The ambition is to largely enhance manufacturing automation and control through machine-embedded intelligence. Moreover, the advancements in Web-, Internet-, and Cloud-based systems and applications have opened up the possibility for industries to utilise the cyber workspace to conduct efficient and effective daily operations from anywhere around the clock, e.g. in cloud manufacturing environments. On the other hand, manufacturing sustainability and related directives have become unavoidable issues that future factories must address. Research works, in particular in the context of Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet, are emerging. Altogether they contribute to the realisation of Sustainable Cybernetic Manufacturing. Within the context, this seminar will provide an overview of research activities at KTH.
