TÜV NORD and Fraunhofer IFF Present Cyber Inspection

07.04.2015

Industry 4.0 is turning manufacturing facilities into complex cyber-physical systems that interconnect mechanical objects with embedded software over the Internet. Digital technologies are also changing traditional testing and certification. At the Hannover Messe, TÜV NORD and the Fraunhofer IFF will be presenting an exhibit of a mobile assistance system for the inspection of industrial plants.

Digital technologies such as mobile assistance systems, virtual engineering and augmented reality have many benefits for technical inspection. To this end, TÜV NORD is collaborating with the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF in Magdeburg.

The research institute uses these technologies to develop systems solutions for smart work systems; TÜV NORD is contributing its expertise in the inspection of complex industrial plants. The strategic objective of their collaboration is to develop innovative technologies for TÜV NORD’s service portfolio and to employ them in concrete applications.

The partners are presently collaborating in a pilot project. The experts intend to use mobile assistance systems in the future for inspection services during so-called cyber inspection.

TÜV NORD and the Fraunhofer IFF will be exhibiting mobile assistance systems for the operation and inspection of industrial plants at this year’s Hannover Messe. The approximately two by on meter exhibit presents a model manufacturing line.

Anyone using a tablet and the proper software to view the plant will receive pertinent information, e.g. checklists, condition data or the last inspection report, superimposed on particular components as augmented reality.

“Mobile assistance systems could be used for inspections of different technical facilities in industry as well as for wind turbines or elevators. We are pooling our know-how with the Fraunhofer IFF to test concrete applications,” says Dr. Dalibor Jerinic, Innovation Manager at TÜV NORD.

A second exhibit at the booth will present a 3D print of a damaged pipeline. TÜV NORD has developed an innovative system that simulates and evaluates damage in pipelines. It is used to better plan and to replace defective sections of pipeline more cost effectively.

What is more, India is the official partner country of the 2015 Hannover Messe. TÜV NORD GROUP’s subsidiary TÜV India has been working in the growing market there for twenty-five years.

TÜV NORD and Fraunhofer IFF at Hannover Messe: April 13 to 17, 2015; Hall 27, Booth H41.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
