The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming everyday life and promises to revolutionize industry. Forecasters view this technology for the manufacturing sector, the industrial Internet of things (IIoT), as a key impetus for growth and productivity in the coming decade, adding US$14.2 trillion to the global economy by 2030.
The IIoT could be the most momentous development in automation systems since the introduction of the microprocessor-based distributed control system (DCS). By empowering businesses to leverage immense amounts of data generated by modern automation solutions, the potential uses and benefits are numerous. They range from enhancing data collection and improved remote monitoring, diagnostic and asset management capabilities, to reducing configuration and commissioning.
However, the potential of billions of sensors and other devices already in place must be harnessed by businesses, as economic benefits from IIoT adoption are not guaranteed. One barrier to benefits is that they can’t be realized until IIoT technology is effectively applied. Other obstacles …read moreContinue reading →
