Industry 4.0 technology center


The Industry4.0 Technology Center (TC) was established by the Budapest University of Technology and Economics as a subcontractor of the IFKA – IVSZ consortium with funding from the GINOP 1.1.3-16 project (Model Factory Project). The TK was established as part of the BME FIEK, currently it is operated in the cooperation of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics, Mechanical Engineering and Transport Engineering in a 260m2 area of BME Building I.

The main goal of the TC is to introduce the opportunities of using Industry4.0 technologies to as many Hungarian SMEs as possible and to provide practical knowledge for the implementation of an Industry4.0 investment. In addition to this, the main objective is to introduce the industrial digitalisation technologies and prepare students for their application. Thirdly, it is the mission of the TC to make the solutions presented available to as wide a range of students as possible. The TC’s mission is to ensure that the information presented is as widely available as possible, and it therefore organises many events to present Industry4.0 to the general public.


TC is currently presenting nearly 20 Industry4.0 solutions, some of which are working models of basic Industry4.0 technologies developed by university departments to solve industrial problems, and others are Industry4.0 solutions and products provided by our industrial partners, which have already been proven in practice and can even be purchased.


Open day: During the Open Day, anyone will have the opportunity to visit the Technology Centre. During the visit, visitors will be given a brief introduction to the concept and capabilities of Industry 4.0, as well as a complete tour of the Technology Centre, during which they will be able to see scenarios and Industry 4.0 solutions, briefly summarising their technical content and their place in Industry 4.0. Registrations for the open days can be made after prior announcement by email to ipar4@mail.bme.hu. The event is usually held on the first Friday of the month.

For students: Every semester, students at BME VIK have the opportunity to join the work in the TC in the framework of the Thematic Laboratory, Project Laboratory, Thesis or Diploma Project courses. Students can join IoT developments, either TC’s own projects or those of our corporate partners. Our topics include, for example, learning about the ThingWorx and MindSphere IoT platforms and solving an IoT development task.

For enterprises

The Industry 4.0 Model Factories flagship project offers a free programme that provides key practical experience and knowledge to productive micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to learn about Industry 4.0 technologies and their applicability, and thus increase their competitiveness.

Participants will receive a wide range of practical information and knowledge on the key topics of Industry 4.0, as well as practical help that, if applied properly, will help them increase their competitiveness: reduce operating costs, increase productivity and minimise passive production times. All this can help you to qualify as a supplier and enter new markets. A basic level of development is needed to apply the achievements of Industry 4.0, but the programme also helps to achieve this.


HSNLab – Network softwerization and cloud systems

Activity of the research group:

Future network applications will fundamentally place new demands on the networks and cloud systems that operate under services. For example, “Tactile Internet” services, which today exist only as a vision, different types of augmented reality applications (AR/VR/MR), remote operations, remote coordinated control of vehicles or remote control of Industry 4.0 production lines require extremely low latency (even below 1ms) with ultra high reliability. This requires much more intelligence, automation and adaptivity at different layers and operational levels of the network, and tight integration of networks and cloud/edge systems, which is a key requirement for the success of 5G and beyond. Our goal is to set up a research team, with the support of Ericsson and the MTA, capable of implementing this new network architecture by softwareising the network.

Research will be carried out along the following four long-term objectives:

Recent results:


Special infrastructure:

Blade servers • SDN switches • High speed network cards

Recent projects:

Lendület • OTKA • Hungarian-Austrian international research topic project • Hungary-India applied research and development cooperation call

HSNLab – Hálózatszoftverizálás és felhő alapú rendszerek

A kutatócsoport tevékenysége:

A jövő hálózati alkalmazásai alapvetően új elvárásokat támasztanak a szolgáltatások alatt működő hálózatokkal és felhő rendszerekkel szemben. Például a ma még csak vízióként létező “Taktilis Internet” szolgáltatások, a kiterjesztett valóság alkalmazások különböző fajtái (AR/VR/MR), távműtétek, járművek távoli, összehangolt kontrollja vagy az Industry 4.0 gyártósorok távoli vezérlése extrém alacsony (akár 1ms alatti) késleltetést igényelnek ultra nagy megbízhatóság mellett. Ehhez jóval több intelligenciát, automatizálást és adaptivitást kell bevezetni a hálózat különböző szintjein és működési síkjain, továbbá a hálózatok és felhő/peremfelhő (cloud/edge) rendszerek szoros integrációjára van szükség, ami alapvető követelmény az 5G és azon túli rendszerek sikeréhez. Célunk egy olyan kutatócsoport felállítása az Ericsson és az MTA támogatásával, amely képes ennek az új hálózati architektúrának a megvalósítására a hálózat szoftverizálásával.

A kutatómunka az alábbi négy hosszútávú cél mentén történik:


Többek között:

Speciális infrastruktúra:

Blade szerverek • SDN switch-ek • Nagysebességű hálózati kártyák

A közelmúlt projektjei:

Lendület • OTKA • Magyar-osztrák nemzetközi kutatási témapályázat • Magyar-indiai alkalmazott kutatás-fejlesztési együttműködési pályázat

Nemzetközi kapcsolatok:

Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies (SSSA) • University of Vienna • University Carlos III of Madrid • KTH Royal Institute of Technology • Queen Mary University • University College London • Technological University Dublin • Indian Institute of Technology
