Steve Twydell for ITProPortal: Rapid advances in artificial intelligence will change the way we manage logistics across a range of industries says Steve Twydell, CEO of transport management experts 3T Logistics.
The capability to deliver information instead of just data, and to do it in real-time, has significantly changed the whole data collection model.
Guy Daniels for TelecomTV: Their joint aim is to promote the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry with 5G slicing technology, as well as further Huawei's ongoing commitment to what it calls the Smart Factory.
As many manufacturers don't have large IT departments, employing each of SMAC's four components is a good way to propel production toward growth and increased efficiency. The four components are: Social, Mobility, Analytics, and Cloud.
Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.
Remi El-Ouazzane for Intel: The First Vision Processing Unit with a Dedicated Neural Compute Engine will Give Devices the Ability to See, Understand and Interact with the World Around Them in Real Time
Dick Weisinger for Formtek: But a survey by ABI Research found that 74 percent of companies are investigating and planning to deploy IoT within the next 12 months. Over that period, IIoT deployments are expected to double.
Predictive maintenance is revolutionizing the industry and transforming the entire operation. This technology predicts problems in a factory before they even happen, changing the paradigm and preventing disasters.
IO-Link (IEC61131-9) is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows for the bi-directional exchange of data from sensors and devices that support IO-Link and are connected to a master.
Michael Pooler for FT.com: An industrial dance takes place every day and night on the floor of Amazon's huge warehouse in Manchester.
We currently offer telemetry devices and cloud based dashboards for our customers to collect process data from remote instrumentation and provide dashboards and operational efficiencies for supply chain management with our Supplycare service offering.
Nobody's bottom line is more valuable than the human lives that help create it. To that end, consider the following best practices for shoring up safety in your facility.
Larry Turner for Industry Week: Industry experts agree, it makes sense to start now and to make small steps towards the big idea of IIoT. Partnerships can help the process.
Too much data, little of which can be accessed and used effectively. From tuggers, AGCs (Automated Guided Carts), and AGVs, there is a real need to include IIoT monitoring.
Harold L. (Hal) Sirkin for Forbes: People with skills and talent typically gravitate to "superstar cities," such as New York and Los Angeles, or to "knowledge and tech hubs" like Boston, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C., not to small towns in the South.

Since Robotmaster V7 uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality, for the first time, the power of Robotmaster can be used by welding, cutting and other process experts without buying or learning complex CAD/CAM software. As in past versions, Robotmaster V7 imports paths, but now makes it even easier for end users to leverage any CAD/CAM tool choice. It is an intuitive tool that anyone could use, with or without robotics expertise. It bridges the gap between robots and manufacturing by providing easy programming solutions for part manufacturing.
