For Industry 4.0 we mean the transformation of manufacturing processes based on the digitalization of the factory, the connection between physical and digital systems and the interconnectivity of more equipment. Industry 4.0 certainly represents the fourth industrial revolution.
The main hubs around which this “revolution” revolves are represented by:
- Interconnectivity between equipment in the production cycle.l
- Continuous monitoring of work conditions by means of appropriate set of sensors and adaptive capacity versus any process drift.
- Equipment remote control, maintenance and diagnosis.
- Machines viewed as networked objects (IOT Internet of things).
