Industrial Internet Consortium, Robot Revolution Initiative Council Announce IIoT Liaison

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the world's leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and the Robot Revolution Initiative (RRI), a council dedicated to developing the robotics market, announced they have agreed to a liaison. Under the agreement, the IIC and RRI will work together to align efforts to maximize interoperability, portability, security and privacy for the industrial Internet.

Joint activities between the IIC and the RRI will include the creation of use cases and requirements for proposals for international standardization in the field of smart manufacturing; industrial security; and periodically hosting joint seminars.

"We are delighted about this new liaison for further collaboration with the Industrial Internet Consortium," said Hideaki Omiya, Chair of Robot Revolution Initiative. "With the high quality and plenty of data which are accumulated though manufacturing, we believe Japan can greatly contribute to this collaboration in the field of smart manufacturing."

"We look forward to working with RRI," said Dr. Richard Soley, IIC Executive Director. "This collaboration expands opportunities for IIC members with industry players focused on robotics for IIoT."

"By industrial internet and IoT, manufacturing business will significantly accelerate optimization along with the vertical and horizontal integration, and product lifecycle," said Tomoaki Kubo, Secretary General of the Robot Revolution Initiative. "I believe a lot of results will be born in this field by meeting RRI's manufacturing knowledge and the IIC's advanced testbeds."

"Advances in robotics, artificial intelligence and analytics are accelerating wide-spread adoption of industrial IoT," said Wael William Diab, Chair of IIC's Liaison Working Group, IIC Steering Committee Member and Senior Director at Huawei. "We look forward to collaborating with RRI and are delighted to present at the RRI International Symposium."

The IIC Liaison Working Group is the gateway for formal relationships with standards and open-source organizations, consortia, alliances, certification and testing bodies and government entities/agencies. The agreement with the RRI is one of a number of agreements made by the IICLiaison Working Group.
