Key Features of Industry 4.0

  • One of the key features of Industry 4.0 is the creation of highly automated industries through human machine interaction.

  • Technological progress has created several advantages for business world; new concepts such as digitalization, Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) have gained importance across industries including manufacturing

  • Industry 4.0 will play a significant role in transforming traditional companies into Smart Factories with the help of Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS)


Cyber Physical Systems:
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) comprise interacting digital, analog, physical, and human components engineered for function through integrated logical platform. These systems will provide the foundation of our critical infrastructure, form the basis of emerging and future smart manufacturing factories


Industrial internet of things (IIoT)
The industrial internet of things (IIoT) is the use of smart sensors and actuators to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes. Also known as the industrial internet or Industry 4.0, IIoT leverages the power of smart machines and real-time analytics to take advantage of the data that dumb machines have produced in industrial settings for years


Key PILLARS of Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 is a network of intelligent devices connected to form systems that monitor, collect, exchange and analyze data. Each industrial IoT echosystem consists of:

  • Intelligent assets that can sense, communicate and store information about themselves

  • Public and/or private data communications infrastructure

  • Analytics and applications that generate business information from raw data; and

  • People
