To highlight the standardization on PROFINET by leading German automakers, the PTO has begun running an ad in Control Engineering magazine. The ad will appear throughout the year.
Mike Bryant, PI Deputy Chairman and Executive Director of the PROFIBUS Trade Organization in North America said: “This decision by key players in the European automotive market sends out a powerful signal. My assessment, based on our experience of the PROFIBUS market 10 years ago is that AIDA’s lead will be followed by automotive manufacturers worldwide including, I believe, in North America.”
