Bosch is hosting a meeting of partners today to present results in a project to modernize the industry.
"Augmented Humanity" seeks to reduce emissions, improve the efficiency of industrial processes, develop production processes according to the characteristics of the working population and prepare human resources for a new industrial reality (industry 4.0).
The concept aims at the harmonious integration of human and computing skills to improve productive capacities by developing capacities presented by the human factor.
A project that aims to transform the industry in the name of the well-being of workers in a more humanized vision of the productive system.
It is a project with application areas in Lisbon, North and Center zones and that has in Bosch one of the pillars in the industry sector.
It mobilizes companies such as Altice, Bosch, Ikea, AAPICO, Oli, Huawei, competence centers and universities and TICE platform.
Leading the consortium is Bosch and UA emerges as a scientific leader in an investment project of 8 million euros, co-financed by the FEDER through the Portugal 2020 - Operational Program Competitiveness and Internationalization (COMPETE 2020) and LISBOA 2020.
"We talk about new processes, new products, emerging technologies and communication, information and decision support systems for the execution and management of day-to-day operations in the industry. What differentiates Augmanity from most projects in the area of Industry 4.0 is that we have put the potential and human factor at the center of the developments of all technological solutions, ranging from collaborative robotics, connectivity, augmented reality to data science applied to industry," explains Nelson Ferreira of Bosch.
The person responsible for the project speaks of a transformation that will mark the future of companies.
"The Factory of the Future is a connected and employee-focused factory."
The results will be presented at this afternoon's working day, June 29, at the Bosch facility.
