Driving the Future of Industrial Automation - Part 2

With Canonical’s Ubuntu and Bosch Rexroth’s CtrlX OS

Register now

Welcome to Part II of this two-part webinar series on the future of industrial transformation, jointly delivered by Canonical and Bosch Rexroth.

In this webinar, we will learn how Canonical’s Ubuntu and Bosch Rexroth’s ctrlX OS accelerate the industrial revolution by bridging the gaps between Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). This convergence has led to a shift from fixed, proprietary functions towards the adoption of open-source software, open protocols, portable applications and multi-vendor interoperability. This transformation is reshaping how manufacturing operations are managed, with a primary focus on achieving visibility and transparency into physical devices and processes within the enterprise.

ctrlX OS and Ubuntu were engineered from the ground up to navigate the IT-OT convergence and address the transition from traditional, hardware-centric approaches to software-based functions.

Bosch Rexroth’s ctrlX OS app-based system makes it easy to add new automation and control functions at any time. Ubuntu Core, an Ubuntu flavour optimised for embedded devices, is designed for security and reliable OTA updates. Together, they make for a powerful combination that allows for rapid adjustments to production processes, enabling manufacturers to respond swiftly to changing market demands and optimize resource utilization.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The challenges of managing industrial and edge devices on the factory floor;
  • Why software-based functions are revolutionising industrial automation;
  • How Ubuntu and CtrlxOS help enterprises reach new standards in industrial automation
