IMPAcore - IMPAcore: Value-added services for Industry 4.0 and digitization

Cloud connectivity and much more…

IMPAtouch requires a powerful 32-bit microcontroller (Cortex M3) to evaluate the sensor signals. But – metaphorically speaking – most of the time this capable calculating machine does not really have much to do. During these breaks it can take over tasks of your application, for example.

Or, in the sense of edge computing, it can preprocess data and push it into the cloud (which can of course also be your IPC in your own machine). Or it can collect operating data in anonymized form to understand how often certain functions are selected during operation. After all, the operator’s view of a machine is often completely different from the manufacturer’s…
