Go in 4

You definitely heard about Industry 4.0 and probably most of you are involved in this trend. ThingsBoard is one of the key components for "smarting" manufactures. We kindly appreciate any of you, who share with us particular case studies, results and efficiency of utilizing TB. Below you can find quotations from CITEVE case study.

CITEVE is the technological center for textile and garment industries from Portugal. The Institute is running projects for the Textile Industry aiming to establish a collective and structured action, oriented to the pre-competitive capacities, which enhance and value R&D results by reinforcing transference and scientific and technological knowledge for this sector. These projects have strategic areas of focus: Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT); New Complex Textile Structures; Multifunctionalization; Sustainability and Circular Economy.

"Thingsboard (TB) platform was selected for experimentation due to its good reputation, not only under academic reviews, but also under the GitHub and the global Internet community. This software is available with an open-source license and its website has lessons on how to use each feature, this made easy for the team to install, run and learn how to use this platform." 

"With the implementation of TB CE, we were able to develop and gather knowledge on several key-topics of the I4.0 and IoT paradigm: 
- Security (Network, Devices and Users management);
- Connectivity (M2M communication and protocols);
- Machine Control (Programing with traditional [Python and Java] and modern [Rule Engine and RPC requests] frameworks).
With this knowledge, we are now able to prepare and setup a legacy textile-coating machine so that all of its parameters, rules and data are online and under control of its managers"
