IoT and robotics are converging: IoT platform developer Device Insight announces partnership with Augsburg company KUKA AG. In addition to being a pioneer in the field of Industry 4.0, KUKA is a leading provider of robotics as well as machine and plant engineering. This new partnership means new opportunities for Device Insight in international markets and innovation, especially in the field of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
By investing in Device Insight, KUKA is making the IoT platform CENTERSIGHT NG an important component in the IoT strategy of its subsidiary connyun. Device Insight has been working with connyun, a start-up specialising in IIoT, for over a year. Together, the two have successfully networked production at KUKA, among other things. In the future, the cooperation will be expanded further. In this way, Device Insight and connyun want to combine their efforts to realise forward-looking solutions in the areas of industrial analytics, smart production and artificial intelligence.
“We are thrilled to have a strong partner such as KUKA on board,” says Reinhold Stammeier, CEO and founder of Device Insight. “Our projects together have shown just how well our Industry 4.0 approaches complement each other. There are clear synergies with connyun, especially in the fields of edge computing, industrial analytics, machine learning and cloud computing. It will be of benefit to both of us. Together we will develop the IoT solutions of tomorrow and open up new markets – also internationally.”
connyun regards Device Insight “the perfect partner for our community”, to jointly expand the IoT ecosystem and “offer customers a comprehensive portfolio of expertise, allowing them to use digitalization profitably”, says connyun Managing Director Dr. Christian Schlögel. Dr. Till Reuter, CEO at KUKA AG adds: “Our partnership can only strengthen our innovative ability. connyun and Device Insight complement each other perfectly. We can expect great added value for the future of Industry 4.0.”
