For the third time in row our Research & Development Project “SimuBridge” (Systems’ Simulator Controlled by a Generic PLC as an Innovative Learning Concept) will be presented on the trade fair for education and training didacta 2016, which will take place on 16 – 20 February 2016 in Cologne.
Didacta is the world’s leading international educational fair with an extensive (education) programme for teachers, educators, trainers and educational staff. Together with the company FELTRON, Timur Saitov (Institute of Visual Computing) has developed an innovative learning concept for real-time simulation of programmable logic controllers called “SimuBridge”. With the actual project successfully completed in 2015, the simulator is now part of a training module for future PLC programmers. The construction of the simulator mainly focused on realistic simulation of the devices themselves as well as their electromechanical characteristics and responses to actual control signals.
This year’s novelty: a universal I/O adapter for Arduino/Genuino which is compatible with Uno, Leonardo and Yun boards. Thus, the open source project Arduino is now compatible with the 24V-world of automation.
