Internet of things creates control engineering resources for distributed control
Control Engineering has covered Internet of things (IoT) developments, especially related to improving industrial networking, communications, and information flow within manufacturing. Because sensing, logic, and actuation (the control loop) are distributed, IoT has potential to bring together information in new ways, improving innovation and efficiency. See related Control Engineering IoT coverage below.
Manufacturing companies will need to address support issues with the expanding coming Internet of things (IoT) as discussed last month’s "Engineering and IT Insight" discussion.
The Industrial Internet of Things – Should industrial users embrace IP networking? It promises convergence of many technologies, but is it necessary or even beneficial? An examination of why and why not, what, and how.
