Information and Communication Technology

The Future Speaks Digital

A steady drop in the size of digital devices with a simultaneous continuing increase in power density points the way into the industrial future: The digitization of physical products. Sensors that measure every relevant condition of a machine create immense quantities of data – in real time and globally linked. This data makes it possible to find relationships and dependencies between products and to forecast their future behavior. Newly created platforms pool the collection, conditioning as well as analyzation of information and interconnect it with suitable algorithms. Thus, components and units are networked to intelligent systems covering entire value chains.

Today, digital Voith products extend from sensors for individual components over intelligent automation solutions all the way to platforms that span across several industries and provide monitoring and proactive management of entire vehicle fleets and facilities.

Diversified Domain Knowledge as a Solid Foundation

The basis for successful concepts is the perfect interplay of automation with communication and information technology. In this respect, Voith benefits from comprehensive knowledge at product, application and process level. Our solutions take key positions in a variety of different markets, which means that we are not just familiar with a single product but also the details of its environment. We are not facing Industry 4.0 as outsiders. Instead, we are optimally interlocking our digital competencies with the individual engineering frameworks of our customers.
