Nearly 200 years after the first industrial revolution, the world is at the start of a fourth revolution. One that offers a great promise and many benefits. This revolution is known as industry 4.0.
Today’s technology — big data, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) — is driving this new industry. It promises to make productization faster, create better profit margins, and give companies a competitive advantage in an increasingly competitive environment.
It’s going to take the manufacturing automation to the next level. Business models will be impacted, redefined, and new ones will be created. Machine safety will increase and risks to worker will decrease. It will touch the world.
