Canonical keynote at Embedded World 2021: Bosch Rexroth achieves complete IoT automation with Ubuntu Core


This year, we’re excited to be sponsoring Embedded World once again. We’re particularly thrilled to invite you to the speaker forum tomorrow, Friday the 5th, where one of our users will be walking you through their personal experience with Ubuntu. Bosch Rexroth will be giving a presentation entitled ‘Ubuntu Core for industry 4.0: Bosch Rexroth’s path to complete automation’.

In order to fully benefit from Industry 4.0, the classic boundaries between operational technology like machine controls, the IT world and the Internet of Things need to be overcome. This session will explain how Bosch Rexroth approaches this with its new complete automation solution ctrlX AUTOMATION which is based on Linux with real-time extension, consistently open standards, app programming technology, web-based engineering and a comprehensive IoT connection.

Ubuntu Core enhances security with strict application confinement. ctrlX AUTOMATION apps run with all dependencies in their snaps for increased isolation. The risk of security vulnerabilities is minimised as the software files packaged in snaps are unalterable. Machine manufacturers deploying apps benefit from automated updates for security fixes and patches for the lifetime of the device, without the need for engineers to intervene. With Ubuntu Core and snaps, software updates roll back to the last known working version to increase uptime and reliability on the factory floor.

Join Hans Michael Krause, Director ctrlX World Ecosystem, Bosch Rexroth for live Q&A at 12:15 CET.
