Exploring the three fundamental aspects of IoT interoperability: a standardized data format, architecture and client-server operations.
In recent years, the use of devices and systems that utilize data to function in an intelligent manner has become commonplace. Machines that make high-level decisions comparable to humans and those that surpass humans in performing work depending on how they are applied have also appeared.
When digitization meets connectivity, you enter the smart factory. As an essential part of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), it aims to optimize smart manufacturing processes. The fully digitized manufacturing facility of the smart factory uses devices, sensors, machinery, and production systems to continuously collect and share data.
The Industrial Revolution began in Britain sometime around 1760. It ushered in a period where coal-fired steam engines powered increased mechanization and productivity and transformed a largely agrarian society into a manufacturing one.
Announcing the December Build Month. A program to support developers in building their next IoT project with cellular technology.
Raspberry Pi is a UK invention, which started out as a small single-board computer (SBC) intended for educational purposes. It was originally developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, who wanted to produce a low-cost SBC for teaching basic computer science.
Smart pneumatics represents another branch of development in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This latest evolution of traditional manufacturing and industrial practice is centred around the intercommunication of machines.
