Abstract

This paper presents an integrated cyber-physical system for remote accessibility and controllability of factory equipment, e.g. CNC machines and robots. It is enabled by combining 3D models, sensor data and camera images in real-time. The aim of this research is to significantly reduce network traffic for much improved accessibility and controllability of any cyber-physical systems over the Internet. The ultimate goal is to build cloudbased services of monitoring, process planning, machining and assembly in decentralised environment. This paper covers the basis of the approach, system architecture and implementation, and a case study of remote control of a robotic assembly cell. Compared with camera-based systems, our approach consumes less than 1% of its network bandwidth, feasible and practical as a future cloud-based solution.
