Smarter Engineering for Industry 4.0 (SmE4I4.0)

3Rd IEEE Italy Section PhD Summer School

Perugia, 17-23 September 2017

Industry 4.0 or 'the Fourth Industrial Revolution" has been opened by the astonishing rise in computational power and connectivity. Paradigms of production change: new forms of human-machine interaction are required (touch interfaces, augmented reality systems, etc.), and new technologies for trasferring digital istructions to the physical world are needed (advanced robotic, 3D printing, etc.).


Students will be exposed to topics such as: 

  • Rapid-Prototyping – Additive Manufacturing
  • Digitalizazion, Modelling and Simulation
  • Human-Machine Interfaces
  • Telemedicine
  • Data Security
  • The role of electrification and automation in the agriculture of the future
