OPC Foundation Hosts Conference at Hannover Messe

OPC Foundation Conference: "OPC UA in the Cloud" / Digital Twin / Metaverse

The IT world desires to utilize the data from the OT space to be combined with additional concepts like Asset Administration Shell, Data Spaces, Digital Twins and Metaverse: All these initiatives and solutions are about sharing information between multiple companies with different use cases like product lifecycle data (AAS) or governance data (DataSpaces) etc.

Join the "OPC UA in the Cloud" conference during Hannover Messe and learn how OPC UA scales to the cloud, digital twin and the metaverse but also how new AI technologies like chatGPT help to reduce engineering efforts!

29 Feb 2024 - UT-F190-B40-2V1D-FR from Pepperl+Fuchs

  • Thursday April, 20th, 2023 from 11:00h – 13:00h
  • Hannover Messe – Convention Center – Room 3B
  • All details here

Start 11:00am

Welcome & Intro by Stefan Hoppe, OPC Foundation

Competition or complement: How does AAS fit with the interoperability solutions AML & OPC UA? by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rainer Drath, Pforzheim University

Is AAS replacing OPC UA and AML? Will the AAS perform all required data exchange related to industrial assets? This presentation provides a clear understanding of each technology’s focus and presents a big picture how AAS, AML and OPC UA work together seamlessly in the future. This big picture avoids double or competitive standardization and modelling, resulting in a technology landscape that complements and enhances the interoperability technologies by integrating the strengths of AutomationML, OPC UA & Asset Administration Shell.

Use-Case “Industrial Interoperability with OPC UA and the AAS” by Detlef Tenhagen, Harting

29 Feb 2024 - SICK RFU6xx Family

Technologies like OPC UA and AAS are not competing instead complementary: With Harting’s new SmEC (Smart Electrical Connector) it’s easy to show both technologies save time and money during the connector’s design, production, installation, operation and maintenance, by combining these technologies with software solutions from HARTING, Siemens, SAP and Microsoft.

This presentation is about a real-world use-case describing the benefits and demonstrating the value of interoperability leveraging IEC standards in several phases of a product’s lifecycle.

Building the Industrial Metaverse with OPC UA by Erich Barnstedt, Chief Architect Standards, Consortia & Industrial IoT, Azure Edge & Platform, Microsoft Corporation

OPC UA can be easily integrated into Industrial Metaverse applications to leverage the benefits that standardized OPC UA Information Models and OPC UA PubSub provide. This talk will explain step by step how an end-to-end solution can be built and present a live demo.

The OPC UA – W3C Web of Things – ChatGPT Dream Team: Say Goodbye to Manual Asset Onboarding by Dr. Sebastian Käbisch, Siemens AG

Discover how ChatGPT enables automatic onboarding of industrial assets with proprietary interfaces for Industrial IoT projects. Leveraging the power of two open standards, OPC UA and W3C Web of Things (WoT), it reduces engineering costs and saves a lot of time usually spent manually mapping “tags”. The talk will give an outlook on the potential of how OPC UA information models can be easily derived from WoT Thing Descriptions generated automatically by ChatGPT.
