Industry 4.0 enables fundamental improvements for manufacturers

The new wave of industrial transformation has been characterised by autonomous manufacturing processes, development and integration of automated manufacturing, data exchange and manufacturing technologies in a single autonomous system with minimal or none human intervention into the production process.

Cyber-physical systems (CPS)

Integration of physical processes and cyber components to organise monitoring and computing operations, secure data storage and data exchange to impact physical processes.

Internet of Things (IoT)

A concept of communicating objects that use technology to interact with each other and with the surroundings, performing certain operations without human contact.
