A wide range of sensors and interconnected devices have taken the internet to the next generation. It is estimated that there will be more than 50 billion devices or things connected to the internet by 2020.
The impact of this is nothing short of the magnitude of the Industrial Revolution of the 1800s. That revolution improved the process of manufacturing which led to mass-production of goods at affordable costs. Looking ahead, “things” will reconfigure themselves in the field, and will monitor, measure and share their parameters to the global cloud in real-time. With sophisticated machine-learning algorithms being built in the platform, manufacturers and users will be able to optimize the performance of these things, in the context of millions of other objects (things) in the field.
The Industry 4.0 revolution will improve the way we manufacture, distribute and operate every system that is known to mankind.
