Recognizing the need for connectivity, data access, and scalability, executives at HIROTEC worked to develop a competitive strategy to capitalize on the potential benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT).
John Schmid , Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Does Wisconsin have the deep reserves of digital-age systems engineers who are coveted in the new manufacturing economy
Gary Hilson for EBN Online: The smart factory is becoming a reality, but the transition to Industry 4.0 is a pragmatic one.
Eclipse Ventures and Munich Re / HSB Ventures Co-Lead Round for NYC IIoT Startup
Linda Rosencrance for TechTarget: Given the exploding industrial internet of things market, surveying the choices can be overwhelming. To get you started, here's a look at three platforms and their focus areas.
Many companies have made significant investment in control systems that look at individual types of machines. But a single process may use many different machines that speak different languages and have different control requirements.
Chris Grove for MBT Mag: Some organizations have a false sense of security and believe their industrial control systems can't be easily compromised.
Strong authentication of all devices within an IIoT network is one of the fundamental requirements for securing these networks.
Dan Miklovic, LNS Research via Plant Services: On the road to smarter manufacturing, do not confuse sophistication with maturity.
The greatest benefit seems to be in complex control of the factory. A SCADA system is extremely useful for all of the workers on the production team. The operator has the main overview of the production in real time, the technologist is able to reconfigure the recipes from the office when itÂ's necessary, for maintenance it is important when and why the failures happened and the shift leader can check who is responsible for that.
IoTium's Managed Service Offering Transforms Mission Critical Industrial Environments to Accelerate the Mass Deployment of Industry 4.0 at Scale
IIoT-ready Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) allow manufacturers to take data from the floor and share it with a local or cloud-based server, where it can be used company-wide, regardless of the user's location. The translation of machine data to actionable information allows companies to make cost-saving decisions and allocate resources more appropriately.
Ben Rossi for Information Age: Technology companies are coming together to enable the smart factory - and launching the Fourth Industrial Revolution
IEEE Spectrum: When Zimmerman recognized that a light pole could potentially solve all three of those challenges, the idea for Kairo began to take form. Over several months, Ubicquia designed and built a wide range of microcontroller boards featuring a variety of sensors and actuators that could be housed in a form factor no larger than a soda can.
Thomas Black for Bloomberg: General Motors Co. has connected about a quarter of its 30,000 factory robots to the internet, and the largest U.S. automaker already is reaping the benefits of less down time.
