The center of the “Power4Production” (P4P) center is the intelligent networking of products and production environments of the industrial creation of value. In the first step, the focus is on topics such as direct communication between the workpiece and the machine, and human-robot communication (HRC) in connection with so-called cyber-physical production systems. In addition, issues such as robust networks, cloud computing and energy efficiency in production are discussed. The new Center P4P is intended to provide companies with the necessary support and to prepare for the future in Saarland. The scientific work at the Center is intended to make an active contribution to securing the competitiveness of the Saarland industry. The DFKI and the ZeMA ideally complement each other in their competencies in computer science, artificial intelligence and engineering sciences.
