The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
The industrial internet of things (IIoT) is the use of smart sensors and actuators to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes. Also known as the industrial internet or Industry 4.0, IIoT leverages the power of smart machines and real-time analytics to take advantage of the data that dumb machines have produced in industrial settings for years.
With Industry 4.0, the sector is entering its fourth revolution, characterised by a merging of the Internet and factories. At each link in the production and supply chains, tools and workstations communicate constantly via the Internet and virtual networks. Machines, systems, and products exchange information both among themselves and with the outside.
