Industry 4.0

The move toward the fourth industrial revolution is one where factories have machines that are augmented with wireless connectivity for sensors, control, visual inspection, and more, which in turn are connected to a system that can visualize the entire production line and make decisions on its own. In essence, Industry 4.0 is the trend toward communications, automation, and data exchange in manufacturing technologies and processes that include cyber-physical systems (CPS), the internet of things (IoT), industrial internet of things (IIOT), cognitive computing, and artificial intelligence.
