Building Industry 4.0: HxGN LIVE Design & Engineering 2021 is Here
For years, we’ve been hearing about how the next big industrial revolution is either well underway or about to get started in earnest. Both of those statements have some truth in them, but the former is starting to look more and more like it’s the horse to back.
Industry 4.0 is, in essence, the bridging of physical and digital systems, achieved through the industrial Internet of Things, that is changing manufacturing as we know it. These new, artificial intelligence-enabled modes of testing and production are beginning to help engineers monitor physical assets in real time, set up autonomous decision-making systems throughout production lines, and enhance value creation processes.
