RE-MAIN - REmote MAINtenance of Smart Industry Installations

The RE-MAIN project aims at improving the skills of VET students at European level in relation to remote maintenance of industrial equipment. In this field, digital transition has determined (and made it possible) that industrial plants of all kinds need to implement several changes to survive in the medium and long term. Thus, the application of the principles of the so-called Industry 4.0 in the maintenance of industrial plants is a strategic tool that increases the competitiveness of companies and, to an increasing extent, determines their very survival in a context of highly competitive markets. To date, existing training programmes in the field of industrial plant maintenance have been characterised by an eminently classroom-based approach. Although this kind of maintenance is still necessary to some extent, the reality is that the industrial sector is rapidly shifting towards models of remote maintenance thanks to the aforementioned new technologies.

Competence Centre for Digital Development in Graz

Together with NOKIA and Citycom, the Degree Programme in Automation Technology at CAMPUS 02 is launching a competence centre for digital development in Graz. In the new laboratories in the “House of Automation”, applications on the subject of “IoT (Internet of Things)” and digitalisation will be further developed and researched.

VR-Lab: More than reality

We all have a general understanding about virtual reality: a digitally visualized world in which the user can act. However, what happens, if actions in the virtual world can control the physical world? A research project at CAMPUS 02 is dealing with this question.

Digitalisation poses major challenges for companies in all sectors. These challenges can only be mastered through a structured, systematic approach. With the IMPROVE! project, the business community takes off off and combines several disciplines to pave a way for innovations to be implemented.
