Connectivity was established in 2017 as a portal website to help manufacturing companies understand Industry 4.0 and all that it meant for them.
At Connectivity , through a range of tutorials, industry viewpoints, application stories, video content, news, and technology pieces, our aim is to keep companies informed about the latest developments in Industry 4.0, ultimately helping them on the journey through real-time remote monitoring and anomaly detection, through to predictive maintenance, and ultimately automated decisioning systems.
Today’s reality is that your ‘average’ company is likely still to be at one of the earlier stages of a move to Industry 4.0, whether that’s due to an ongoing uncertainty or concern about the path ahead, or for some other perfectly valid reasons. That said, the benefits to technology companies, designers and manufacturers of an automated future remain clear, and at Connectivity, we see both the advantages and the barriers inherent in the transition to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Despite Industry 4.0 being in the picture for several years now, engineers are still desperate for a better understanding of what the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can do for them and their companies, and while many are aware of these concepts, most still have little or no knowledge of their potential.
Our readers, subscribers and contributors fall into one or more areas of the Industry 4.0 spectrum, typically as hardware or software technology providers, to facilitate the move to an automated and innovative manufacturing reality. They may be specialists in robotics, AI, AR, VR, sensors, connectors, 3D design/simulation, IT /OT, communications, cybersecurity, data/analytics, standards, or other associated and developing areas. They will span a number of industry sectors, including Automotive, Food & Beverage, Military/Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Energy, Water, Medical & Pharmaceutical, Communications, and Manufacturing.
We look forward to you helping and joining you on your Industry 4.0 journey.
