Industry 4.0 is the beginning of a new digital industrial technology era that is transforming systems, sensors, machines, workpieces and IT. Industry 4.0 is making it possible to gather and analyze data across machines - creating a more efficient process with these nine technologies:
Industry 4.0 goes beyond the basic idea of machine-to-machine communication. Facility components typically not regarded as “machines” can be wired up and treated as “machines” within the factory’s digital ecosystem. Some level of human input and customization is needed to power automation in manufacturing, however Industry 4.0 facilitates that. By using handheld technology like smartphones and tablets, supervisors can direct robotic activities and perform overrides using mainstream technology.
Industry 4.0 represents a giant leap in the evolution of machines — an evolution that has already pioneered advances in productivity and quality of life over several hundred years. Today, our machines relate to each other, their physical environments, and most importantly, to people.
