What is Industry 4.0?

There’s no question that technology is playing a huge part in our everyday lives today, but the increasingly connected culture we live in is also having an impact on the world of industry.

Welcome to Industry 4.0, the name given to the growing combination of traditional manufacturing and industrial platforms and practices with the latest smart technology.

This primarily focuses on the use of large-scale M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) deployments to provide the likes of increased automation, improved communication and monitoring, as well as smart machines that can analyse and diagnose issues without the need for human intervention. 

Industry 4.0 is already seeing factories become increasingly automated and self-monitoring as the machines within are given the ability to analyse and communicate with each other. This then free ups their human co-workers, granting companies much smoother processes that leave employees open for other tasks.
