Industrial internet and edge computing brings lots of new opportunities for traditional industrial automation systems. With massive computing, storage, and communication resources available on field devices, a new low code development must be investigated to handle multiple applications on multiple edge devices simultaneously. A system-level modeling language is needed to achieve efficient and reliable design and development of industrial edge applications. In this talk, we will discuss model-driven and data-driven approaches for automatic code generation for industrial edge applications based on the IEC 61499 and MTP standard. The next-generation industrial edge computing systems relies on a system-level modeling language based on IEC61499, deterministic network and embedded virtualization technologies. The new generation of industrial edge applications can be applied to discrete manufacturing, process control, motion control and other fields, and plays an important role in automatic code generation, autonomous optimization and self-management.
