Intel, Mitsubishi Collaborating On Factory Automation Systems

INTEL_2_v3

Intel and Mitsubishi Electric have inked a collaboration to develop next-generation factory automation (FA) systems with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and a pilot program at Intel’s backend manufacturing facility in Malaysia.

The pilot demonstrates the benefits of IoT in a factory setting, by combining Intel IoT solutions with Mitsubishi Electric’s ‘e-F@ctory’ automation capabilities. Using an Intel Atom processor-based IoT gateway called the C Controller from Mitsubishi Electric’s iQ-Platform, Intel gathered and aggregated data for the analytics server. Data was then processed using Revolution R Enterprise software from Revolution Analytics, an analytics software solution that uses the open source R statistics language, which was hosted on Cloudera Enterprise.

Intel says it realized a savings of$9 million over the course of the pilot.
