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.
