About

The University of Western Australia, Enterprise Transformation Partners, AMIRA International and South Metropolitan TAFE are working together to deliver the UWA ERDi I4.0 Testlab.

I4.0 aligned architecture and technology components will deliver the next step change in operational performance for the Energy and Resources sectors. I4.0 interoperability standards are critical in unlocking this value. The ERDi Testlab is a state of the art facility that will enable the rapid realisation of these benefits through research, development, trials, testing and education.

Who we are

A pilot project of the Australian Government’s Industry 4.0 (I4.0) Testlabs for Australia Initiative, ERDi partners secured a grant, matched by The University of Western Australia and industry, to establish the platform. The ERDi team is an experienced, multi-sector group, with specialised knowledge.

What we do

ERDi provides the validation platform for you to test I4.0 commercial readiness for open process control systems using international standards.

We specialise in I4.0 interoperability standards from standards definition, research and development, testing of interoperable components and architectures, education and compliance testing.

We enable you to:
