Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Industry 4.0 holds a lot of potentials and is expected to register substantial growth in the near future. According to the modern market study, the global Industry 4.0 market is projected to grow from USD 116.14 billion in 2021 to USD 337.10 billion in 2028 at the CAGR of 16.4% in the 2021–2028 period.

Industry 4.0 is an integrated system that consists of an automation tool, robotic control, communications and Big Data analytics. The increased adoption of industrial robots is one of the main driving factors of this market, while the data risks associated with the integration of advanced technologies are the restraining factors.

This Special Issue contains extended selected papers from the 2nd IFSA Winter Conference on Automation, Robotics & Communications for Industry 4.0 (ARCI' 2022), 2–4 February 2022, Andorra la Vella, Andorra.

Topics of Interest (but not limited to):

  • Process Automation;
  • Process Control and Monitoring;
  • Design Principles in Industry 4.0;
  • Smart Manufacturing and Technologies;
  • Smart Factories;
  • Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Manufacturing;
  • Chemical Process Control;
  • Industrial Big Data and Analytics;
  • Digital Production and Virtual Engineering.

The incursion of disruptive technologies, such as the Internet of Things, information technologies, cloud computing, digitalization and artificial intelligence, into current production processes has led to a new global industrial revolution called Industry 4.0 or Manufacturing 4.0. This new revolution proposes digitization from one end of the value chain to the other by integrating physical assets into systems and networks linked to a series of technologies to create value. Industry 4.0 has far-reaching implications for production systems and engineering education, especially in the training of mechatronic engineers. In order to face the new challenges of the transition from manufacturing 3.0 to Industry 4.0 and 5.0, it is necessary to implement innovative educational models that allow the systematic training of engineers. The competency-based education model has ideal characteristics to help mechatronic engineers, especially in the development of specific competencies. This article proposes 15 technical considerations related to generic industrial needs and disruptive technologies that serve to determine those specific competencies required by mechatronic engineers to meet the challenges of Industry 4.0 and 5.0.
