Today, there are already over 15 billion objects connected to each other via the Internet. But what's known as the “Internet of Things” (IoT) will only continue to grow. Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, smart factories, and artificial intelligence are just three of the new, innovative IoT fields available to industry. But successful use of these digital technologies is not a given; hurdles of technology investment, employee skills, and security concerns must be planned for and overcome to reap the potential rewards.
Whether it’s thermostats, robots used in manufacturing or cars, in the Internet of Things, devices and machines are interconnected via the Internet. With the help of built-in chips, sensors or software, machines can exchange increasing amounts of data and information. An IoT platform coordinates the data analyses and makes the information usable for users via the cloud or the edge.
Thanks to machine-to-machine communication (M2M), such IoT solutions are becoming increasingly relevant, especially in the field of Industry 4.0. Production processes in a smart factory can be automated by networked machines which are fully autonomous.
Intelligent machines, storage systems, and operating resources that exchange data independently and control themselves present opportunities may seem like a dream in terms of the opportunities they present for greater productivity at lower cost. The Internet of Things helps this dream come true, enabling companies to make their product portfolio more flexible and their production processes faster. However, this requires both the appropriate infrastructure and detailed process knowledge.
