Open Source Hardware for Industry 4.0

  1. 1. Open Hardware for Industry 4.0 (C) 2018 Released under CC BY-SA-3.0
  2. 2. Tsvetan Usunov, owner of OLIMEX Ltd. A company which deals with electronic design and electronic products production. All our products are designed and manufactured in Bulgaria. We produce Development boards, Programming tools, Linux computers and IoT solutions. Many of our products are with Open Source Hardware Licensee. $whoami
  3. 3. Software released under Open Source Licensee. Anyone is licensed to to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly available. What is FOSS
  4. 4. Open source hardware is hardware whose design is made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell the design or hardware based on that design. What is OSHW
  5. 5. Component vendors. When design is freely available it’s highly customized. Many products are designed which create high and long lasting demand. Who benefits from OSHW?
  6. 6. Your customers! ✔ No vendor dependence ✔ Security for their business ✔ Long term availability ✔ Easy Customization ✔ Collaboration ✔ Better product ✔ Push prices low Who benefits from OSHW?
  7. 7. Community critical mass What makes one OSHW project success?
  8. 8. It’s all about connectivity monitoring, logging, analyze and taking decision based on the captured information. Industry 4.0
