The IoT, IIoT, AIoT, and why they’re the future of industrial automation

03 August 2020

As the rate of adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) accelerates, there is also a pull for more advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). So much so, that the meaning of the term “IoT” is itself evolving and expanding into the Industrial IoT (IIoT), the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT), and the Internet of Heavier Things.

In the case of industrial deployments, the connectivity and intelligence afforded by the IIoT offers productivity, efficiency, and other economic benefits. However, in addition to new IIoT-ready equipment, there is a large amount of existing "dumb" (legacy) infrastructure and machinery.

Instead of letting this equipment deteriorate on the outskirts of technological innovation, this article will show how facilities managers have the incentives and means to incorporate this legacy equipment into the era of the IIoT with solutions from Molex, TE Connectivity, STMicroelectronics, Delta, and Weidmuller.
