CISC, as technology provider of embedded systems, will develop software for a new generation of embedded devices which cover Blockchain technology, smart contracts and tokenization in a decentralized manner. Furthermore, CISC will provide secure wireless transfer of sensible production data (machines/robots, users and IoT-devices) to a cloud-based environment enabling modern production analysis methods to be applied for production optimization covering also monitoring of user data and permissions. In particular, CISC will provide software for a novel gateway device (secure embedded controller) to facilitate dependable operation including an additional “trusted layer” to meet the high security and privacy demands for exchange and management of data. The dynamic adaption of processes and operation will be supported by monitoring solutions.
