Mar. 8, 2016 – Posital-Fraba has announced its support for University4Industry, a new startup that aims to provide individuals and companies with opportunities to learn about the knowledge- and communications-based technologies that are changing how industries are designing, building, delivering and supporting their products and services.
University4Industry is an online education platform that offers courses on the new industrial technologies that define Industry 4.0, The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and digitization in a broader sense. The emphasis is on practical knowledge and real-world examples, according to representatives of the startup, adding that the platform strives to “help solve critical skills gaps for industry.”
Coursework is developed in collaboration with established educational institutions and with industrial enterprises that are also working to tackle the challenges of the new industrial age.
Posital-Fraba is the subject of the course, “Industry 4.0 Case Study: Digitization of the Supply Chain,” which describes how Posital, a supplier of motion and position sensors, developed an advanced manufacturing and order fulfilment system that incorporates universal connectivity, Cloud-based knowledge access and the use of embedded microprocessors in smart devices.
