The Platforms4CPS Team was present with a community booth in Amsterdam during the DIF 2017 together with their Horizon 2020 sister projects DEIS, CERBERO, and CPSwarm. As a highlight the booth was equipped with an interactive survey for visitors to vote on their CPS Priorities. During the two day event more than 50 visitors from large Companies, SMEs, Academia, and Other Institutions (i.e. Clusters, Associations) voted on their Priorities. The results of the survey in combination will be used to derive CPS/IoT recommendations for the European Commission and are summarised in the diagrams below. In addition to voting of CPS priorities the Platforms4CPS booth visitors received information regarding the objectives, approaches, and expected impacts as well as to become members of the Platforms4CPS community. During the event more than 40 new CPS experts joined the project expert group. All members of the expert group will be invited in the upcoming project period to participate in the Platforms4CPS PlatForum, workshops as well as in CPS/IoT related events in Europe.

Platforms4CPS Market Landscape Workshop on the 9th of May

In addition, the Platforms4CPS consortium held a Market Landscape Workshop at the same venue right before the DIF event. The aim of this workshop was to discuss the results of an investigation into the CPS and IIoT market segmentation and to contribute to guiding future tasks including an analysis of competition and opportunities for the European Ecosystem, CPS platform advancement and research roadmap development. The interactive workshop also had the objective to stimulate the discussion of Platforms4CPS Market Segmentation as well as the outcomes of the CPS Platforms Survey, and to identify needs and barriers for a successful implementation in different application domains (manufacturing, transport, energy and health).
