E! SMART C-PALS

Reference number 2018-03333
Coordinator KUNGLIGA TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLAN - Institutionen för hållbar produktionsutveckling
Funding from Vinnova SEK 5 000 000
Project duration May 2019 - April 2022
Status Ongoing
Venture EUREKA cluster co-funding 

Purpose and goal

C-PALS (Cyber-Physical Assembly and Logistics System) will develop offerings and software solutions for smart assembly and production logistics in automotive global supply chains. The project consortium, including manufacturing companies, technology providers, IT companies and universities in Sweden and Republic of Korea, will research and develop a unified framework and an inter-operable platform for C-PALS as well as practical shop floor applications for end-to-end engineering and smart assembly and logistics.

Expected results and effects

C-PALS will contribute to the development and validation of four more generic industrial offerings: (1) Integrated platform and cloud services, (2) Manufacturing big data management system, (3) Real time location services, (4) Industrial-grade connectivity solution for IoT, as well as the development of four company-specific solutions for the two manufacturing companies, possible to show as use-cases: (5) Smart Quality Control System, (6) Smart Production Control System, (7) AGV control system and (8) Production logistic centre control system.

Planned approach and implementation

The four Swedish partners Scania, Ericsson, H&D Wireless and KTH will focus two parts in enabling technology (real-time location and connection solutions) and three industrial production logistics applications (one in logistics planning, one in AGV planning and one demonstration environment). Through real-time based systems, digital twins and advanced analyzes, dynamic and high-performance logistics planning and control are made possible. The South Korean partners focus on applications and technology in assembly.
