Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 – Transformative Technology to Advance Industry

Industry 4.0 technologies are poised to transform sectors, including shipbuilding and defence. These technologies include advanced robotics and artificial intelligence, sophisticated sensors, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, data capture and analytics, digital fabrication, software-as-a-service and advanced navigation tools.

Access to Industry 4.0 technologies, processes and expertise is essential to enable businesses working across many Australian industry sectors to compete on a global stage. The Factory of the Future aims to substantially increase the number of companies involved in testing automation and robotics technologies to help our nation prosper.

“Having that ability to scale up from the laboratory-based work out into The Factory of the Future and then out to the shipyard is actually a crucial part of testing our technology.”
