Increasingly, connected sensors are being applied to heavy machinery, supply chains, and factories. This new digitization, sometimes called Industry 4.0, is allowing industrial players to derive useful insights, make decisions, and optimize their systems. Meanwhile, many dirty, dangerous, and dull jobs are being augmented with worker wearables and collaborative robotics.
This briefing examines IoT companies targeting manufacturing organizations, covering the following:
- Where the $2.5B invested in 2017 went within the IIoT startup landscape
- Future of factories, and how owners are approaching the technology wave
- How AR/VR and wearables are improving safety in manufacturing contexts
- Robotic automation, and the rise of robots in enterprise
