RICAIP Testbed Brno Ceremonial Opening

About event

For invited guestes only

Our RICAIP testbed Brno is part of the international research centre RICAIP - Research and Innovation Centre on Advanced Industrial Production in Brno, based on a strategic partnership of the leading Czech research institutions CIIRC CTU, CEITEC BUT and the German DFKI (Deutsches Forschungzentrum für Kunstliche Intelligenz) and ZeMa (Zentrum für Mechatronik und Automatisierungstechnik). 

After its completion in 2022, the RICAIP Brno Industry 4.0 Testbed with a total area of ​​420 m2 will be open to internal and external users from the academic and industrial spheres. The testbed will significantly contribute to the digitization of industrial production in the Czech Republic and support the introduction of research results in the field of artificial intelligence into industrial practice by using virtual and augmented reality. 

The opening of the testbed at CEITEC BUT follows this April's start of operation of the RICAIP Prague Testbed, which recently took place at CIIRC CTU. The international connection of Testbeds in Brno, Prague and previously in Saarbrücken will enable distributed, fully digitized intelligent production not only in the Czech Republic, but also throughout Europe.
