Oracle and Festo are joining forces to help educators create new opportunities and solve challenges at the Oracle Industry Lab. The lab opened recently and provides hands-on, simulated industry settings to experiment, learn, and bring transformative technologies to life. 

At the lab, visitors will interact with a Festo “Learning Factory” used in training and workforce development programs worldwide. The Learning Factory models Industry 4.0 production facilities and provides a holistic platform to understand smart manufacturing. The automated machinery uses sensors, controllers, and software to produce “lot size one” simulated cell phones.

“We are thrilled to be working together with the Oracle Industry Lab where we partner with the leading information company to harness the power of data for the education and training sector,” said Ted Rozier, Director of Engineering, Festo Didactic Inc. The demand for skilled workforce in manufacturing is skyrocketing, and innovations such as this will prepare the next generation of workers.

Supported by Verizon 5G Ultra-Wideband, the Oracle Industry Lab will first focus on use cases in utilities, construction and engineering, communications, and manufacturing.
