How did we get to IoT?
From steam engine to Industry 4.0
We live at the time of the 4th Industrial Revolution, dominated by the Internet of Things (IoT). How to prepare for digital transformation and how did it all begin?
In the late 18th century, the first industrial revolution started, which was dominated by manufactures and industrialization. The follow-up second industrial revolution took place at the end of the 19th century and is associated with electrification and installation of assembly lines. The third industrial revolution began in the second half of the 20th century thanks to the boom of information technology and helped to automate the society.
Concept Industry 4.0 was first introduced in 2013 at the Hanover trade fair and describes the four pillars of the revolution: cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, Internet Services and the Digital Economy. Industry 4.0 thus reacted to the massive expansion of Internet access and took the direction of further developments in technology and technology, which are a daily part of modern digital communication and robotics.
How will IoT affect society in 2020?
One of the key terms of the 4th Industrial Revolution is the Internet of Things (IoT), which is a sensor, chips and other devices that can collect and pass data, even from originally "stupid" devices. IoT helps companies make production more efficient and save money, and also improve people's everyday lives. With examples of IoT we are meeting today, whether it's tracking of wagon positioning, water consumption monitoring, air cleanliness measurement, smart bench or optimization of parking.
Open the door to the 4th Industrial Revolution that will save time and money for your business and people.
