On December 11th 2014 was the Kick-Off meeting of the interdisciplinary I4D project, which was started by IML in October together with the Chair of Engineering Design and CAD (KTC) and the Chair of Distributed Control Engineering (PLT). The goal of the project is to create an integrated information and interaction space for industry 4.0 in Dresden. The Meeting was a whole success in the eyes of every participant, so that the way has been paved to implement prototypes of the planed concepts and to acquire additional research and industry partners during the next two years.
