Basic questions for revising, adapting and developing modules

Smart and Keen Factory – My Trolley Chip

What is the module about?

The module SMART AND KEEN FACTORY will enable teachers and students to create an intelligent factory, where trolley chips can be produced on demands of the customers.

This distinguishes it from the work with 4.0 training stations which are on the market available.

Which previous knowledge is required to use this module?

Basic knowledge in ICT software designing, mechanics and electronics. Work with an 3D-Printer and with pneumatic and electrical components.

Which target group is the module addressing?

Teachers, Instructors and Students working on a vocational college or training center in the field of mechatronics and electronics.

What am I going to learn?

Students will be able to:

  • read mechanical drawings
  • assemble basic mechanical skills
  • read electrical and termination drawings
  • have basic wiring skills
  • maintain hardware Projection
  • manage PLC fieldbus connection
  • read EN60848 Grafcet

Intelligent House 4.0 – Smart Light Control

What is the module about?

This module develops and increases competences of using the technology of smart home systems.

In a first step, an overview and an introduction into the topic of smart home will take place.

In a second step by using the “smart wall” teachers and trainers are able to use existing and to create new learning situations with smart home systems, beginning with simple tasks up to complex control settings.

Existing learning situation using the “smart wall” are:

  • Light control by installation and configuration of a smart home plug and a two-way 230V circuit with smart home switches.
  • Integration of Phillips Hue Bulbs

In a third step the module can be extended by the following topics or submodules:

  • Security (e.g. intrusion alarm combined with video control)
  • Energy efficiency (e.g. heating control combined with window monitoring)
  • Comfort (shutter control by different scenarios, integration of voice control)
What previous knowledge is required to use this module?
  • Basics with installing and configuration of different apps for controlling the smart devices as well as for documentation and evaluation of the tasks of the students.
  • Basics of using FAQs and the online information of the manufacturers.
  • Basics of electric circuits.
  • Basics of network communication (e.g. communication between smart home controller, smart home devices, mobile devices and the cloud of e.g. Bosch or Phillips)

Only for using components with 230V power supply like switches:

  • Basics of function and wiring of electrical house installation.
  • Danger of 230V power supply
  • First aid in case of an electrical accident
  • The security roles when you will work with 230V power supply
Which target group is the module addressing?

Teachers and trainers for:

  • Electronics technicians in industry and handcraft like:
  • Electronics technician – specialising in energy and building technology
  • Electronics technician for industrial engineering
  • Information technology and telecommunications system electronic technician (m/f)

as well as

  • Other technicians in the professional field of building service engineering, e.g.
  • Plant mechanic for sanitary, heating and air conditioning systems
