Northwestern Engineering researchers have developed two new algorithms that can infer the topology of a network by observing the behavior of the individual nodes (such as neurons) in real time, which could help improve swarm robotics, which use collaborative manipulation to work together.
Complex augmented reality (AR) could soon find everyday use on assembly lines, in operating rooms and in the classroom as technology advances.
Are there connections between advanced process control (APC) and data analytics? Recent developments in the field of information technology (IT) and its use in the manufacturing world provide insights.
thyssenkrupp Materials IoT GmbH (tkMIoT) has been created to connect machinery and digitalize processes for other companies.
The artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) is creating great value for manufacturers and other companies by combining the internet and AI.
Rapid growth of data collection make rapid expansion of digital twins more likely to add automation, supply chain efficiencies and optimization.
Leveraging a mobile human-machine interface (HMI) strategy can help an organization’s digital transformation by improving operations and a company’s overall digital intelligence.
Automation future: The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are widely known concepts, have not been widely adopted. On the way, physical device data connectivity can increase information flow to add efficiency, eliminate errors and increase uptime
