MAYA and DAEDALUS: the Digital Twins

Tackling different but complementary aspects for the deployment of effective CPS in current and future Factories, MAYA and DAEDALUS projects have formalized a concrete collaboration to the aim of maximizing their respective objectives through a synergistic approach in facing development, exploitation and dissemination.

MAYA aims at developing simulation methodologies and multidisciplinary tools for the design, engineering and management of CPS-based (Cyber Physical Systems) Factories, in order to strategically support production-related activities during all the phases of the factory life-cycle, from the integrated design of the product - process - production system, through the optimization of the running factory, till the dismissal/reconfiguration phase. The concurrence and the cross-combination of the Cyber and the Physical dimensions with the Simulation domain is considered as cornerstone in MAYA innovations, to successfully address a new generation of smart factories for future industry responsiveness.

DAEDALUS is conceived to enable the full exploitation of the CPS (Cyber Physical System) concept of virtualized intelligence, through the adoption of a completely distributed automation platform based on IEC 61499 standard, fostering the creation of a Digital Ecosystem that could go beyond the current limits of manufacturing control systems and propose an ever-growing market of innovative solutions for the design, engineering, production and maintenance of plants’ automation.

The European Competence network for IEC-61499

One of the key objectives for the exploitation of Daedalus’ technological results is the creation of a live community to sustain the market acceptance and evolution of the IEC-61499 standard for distributed automation: the European Competence Network (ECN) for the IEC61499, an initiative that strongly encourages the adoption of the standard to use in the industrial automation systems.

Daedalus’ Competence Centre for IEC-61499 and ComoNExT Digital Innovation Hub

Since its launch event, in October 2016, one of the major objectives of Daedalus was to keep a constant and bidirectional connection between its research and development activities and the market of potential users of its technologies. This Technology Transfer effort is embodied in the project’s Competence Centre for IEC-61499 (role interpreted by Synesis, Coordinator of Daedalus), with a concrete strategy of drawing companies nearer to the opportunities offered by IEC-61499, thanks to the showcasing of its potential industrial applications.
