The Future of Fieldbuses Workshop: What We Need to Know about the Impact of OPC UA, DDS, and TSN

When it comes to controller-to-controller communication or controller-to-cloud or  IT platform communication,  existing fieldbuses simply cannot handle the growing technology requirements imposed by digitalization.  Protocols like OPC UA or DDS have emerged as the preferred solution.  But what about communication to the sensor/actor level, or direct from sensors to the cloud?  Can hard, real-time critical applications like multiaxis servodrive synchronization be realized with TSN?  With the help of representatives from the major industry consortia, this workshop will attempt to clarify these issues.
