ICT for Industry 4.0 – Smart Factory Group

iCoSys has opened a new axis of applied research projects in the field of ICT for Industry 4.0.  Born in April 2017, it aims at providing applied computer science solutions to foster the development of  Industry 4.0 systems.

The Smart Factory Group in iCoSys is thus active in many domains, including:

  • industrial big data and analytics for anomaly detection, smart manufacturing and predictive maintenance
  • industrial machine learning
  • industrial mobile applications
  • information indexing linked to production sites
  • simulation, digital twins



The European project BIOSMART aims to develop active and smart bio-based and compostable packages that make possible: light weighting, reduced food residues, shelf life monitoring, longer shelf life and easier consumer waste handling.
BBDATA stands for Big Building Data and aims at developing a scalable cloud platform and tools for storing and processing smart building data. The services are targeting data access, processing and analysis, using open, robust, standardized and secured big data technologies.
Process4Plastics (P4P) aims to build a dedicated methodology of process engineering for the production of plastics parts. In the industry 4.0 era, machines will be equipped with many sensors and actuators and be connected together to create intelligent networks.
DAPLAB aims at facilitating the access for enterprises and universities to emerging technologies in the area of big data and intelligent data analysis by managing an infrastructure composed of cluster of servers dedicated to storage and computation, to which universities and local companies will have access.
