New H2020 project: vf-OS starts in October

Almende joins the consortium for a new logistics project: vf-OS. This project starts in October 2016 and is a part of the H2020 'Factories of the Future' program. 

The goal is to develop an Open Operating System for Virtual Factories, composed by a Virtual Factory System Kernel, a Virtual Factory Application Programming Interface and a Virtual Factory Middleware. An Open Applications Development Kit will be provided to software developers for deploying Manufacturing Smart Applications for industrial users, using the Manufacturing Applications Store at the Virtual Factory Platform. 

Almende will be working on the vf-OS Platform Environment and the vf-Service Provision Framework, providing a holistic service platform which is the foundation for all services and end user applications vf-OS will facilitate.
