Manufacturing today requires mobility. But mobility can bring with it a complex supporting infrastructure. It requires networking hardware and software, devices to connect to the infrastructure, applications to run on the devices, and processes and procedures to work effectively, safely and securely. Mark T. Hoske, content manager and editor with Control Engineering, will explain mobility trends based on Control Engineering research and discuss the types of mobile engineering applications available among 225 categorized in editorial coverage. Harry Forbes, senior analyst at ARC Advisory Group, will explain basic wireless mobility infrastructures, types of hardware and software needed, and the challenges and advantages wireless mobility offers to end-users, providing examples. A question and answer session will follow the presentations, for a total of 1 hour. This RCEP-accredited webcast offers an opportunity to earn a professional development hour (PDH).

Webcast participants will learn:

  • Wireless mobility trends and applications
  • Major types of wireless infrastructures and their applications
  • Types of industrial hardware and software applied for wireless mobility
  • Some examples of successful end users processes, procedures, and applications.
