Current status of WG1
Robot Revolution Initiative (RRI)
RRI was established to realize “robot revolution” led by METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry).
There are three WGs in RRI;
・WG1: Manufacturing Business Reformation through IoT
・WG2: Robot usage promotion
・WG3: Robot Innovation
WG1: Manufacturing Business Reformation through IoT
The term “robot” is expanded by METI, to include Industrial IoT (“IIoT” i.e. horizontal object-level association), and there are four missions for IIoT in WG1 that has 150 members;
a) awakening Japanese people where they are, by learning from advanced countries and mapping each standardization activity in Japan on Unified Reference Model – Map & Methodology (URM-MM)
b) creating business scenarios and use cases
c) facilitating SMEs
d) researching reasonable security
Our society with digitalization should be sustainable with diverse people’s ideas and lives. The important things to achieve this might be a) to create new value reducing unemployment rate, b) to reduce alienation of people and c) to assist growth mindset and association of people, to overcome various social problems from industrial aspect. IIoT’s horizontal entity-level association is a main candidate to achieve these things.
