Industry 4.0 Key Technologies

Industry 4.0 Key Technologies

The main Industry 4.0 areas are the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Additive Manufacturing (AM) and Advanced Industrial Robotics (AIR).

These areas use hardware technologies such as wireless networks, wired networks, sensors, actuators, robots, advanced materials and software technologies such as big data, data security, machine learning and cloud computing.

The key enablers for SMEs are the recent reduction in costs of hardware and software as well as the introduction of standards, such as mesh networking, that enable the use of inter-operable products and components rather than expensive proprietary solutions.

Allied to all hardware and software technologies are cyber-security techniques and technologies.
