The digitalization of the working world is based on the networking of all entities, which means an increasing flow of information between people and machines. The information that is generated directly or indirectly, be it from internal process data, sensor data from machines or from the user himself, forms the starting point for the digital image of the user (digital twin). In the past, methods that use sensor data to record specific workloads have been presented in the Progress College. In order to make use of the advantages of such developments for employees, the aspect of data sovereignty must already be considered during system design.
In concrete terms, the following questions are to be answered: What does the system (the machine) need to know from the user in order to ensure safe and efficient interaction? What can the system know about the user (through interaction)? How reliable are the interaction data and which possibilities does the user have to take self-determined influence? Who owns the data and how is it used and secured?
