What is IoT in industrial automation?
Industrial IoT is the term used to describe machine-to-machine (M2M) communications where machines interact and communicate with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. The increasing trend towards Industrial IoT is transforming industries such as transportation, infotainment, medicine, communications and industrial automation,making them more efficient and optimizing operations.
Industries are entering a new era as the IoT allows billions of devices containing embedded technology to seamlessly connect, be managed, and securely interact over the network. As a result of these communications, huge volumes of data are being intelligently generated, and that data is being processed and analyzed, resulting in meaningful and timely actions for management and control.
