How IIoT is revolutionizing the manufacturing and automation sectors

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is revolutionizing the manufacturing and automation sectors. In addition to bringing more efficiency and capacity to automated systems, the IIoT is also paving the way for new concepts and business models.

 

Predictive maintenance is a key application area but it is also beneficial for transportation and logistics.

The IIOT-enabled sensors installed at strategic points provide input about circumstances and incidents that are not typically monitored by traditional control systems. The data gathered by IIoT field devices is sent to the cloud where an application then processes it and produces meaningful reports and actionable information. There is also the possibility of implementing warnings and alarms based on historical data and trends. And the IIOT devices are often installed on trucks to provide real-time information about transport and logistics to improve logistics management and traceability.
