During the period of Daedalus, the premises for a technical collaboration have been laid down with another FoF-11 project, called Far-Edge. Such collaboration was born due to the natural complementarity of the two projects, which can be easily represented by the figure below.

In fact, while Daedalus is particularly focused on the real-time automation of distributed intelligent devices, based on the IEC-61499 standard as well know, Far-Edge considers that type of automation which resides in the “edge” (or “fog”), between the station level and the Factory-level. In addition to this, the characteristic approach of Far-Edge of “embedding” station-level automation in a service-oriented interfacing mechanism, is naturally coherent with the object-oriented approach of Daedalus.
