System integrator assembled a diverse collection of technologies to meet an aggressive schedule.
International: Move from vision to reality: It’s time to embrace digital twins for manufacturing. Benefits include more efficient digital transformations and more effective asset monitoring and performance.
The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) released its Industrial Internet Vocabulary Technical Report V2.2. See 10 terms IIC thinks you should know and see a link for more definitions.
Cybersecurity is critical as information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) converge, which is the first step in making the transition between the two sides almost seamless.
Fraunhofer IPMS has combined Li-Fi and time-sensitive networking (TSN) to enable real-time and deterministic data transmission wirelessly.
Researchers from MIT, Harvard University, and the U.S. Army have built a compact device to produce a terahertz laser whose frequency they can tune over a wide range using nitrous oxide for better wireless communication.
Converging information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) does little to move end-to-end digitalization forward. What makes digitalization really work is successful OT and IT collaboration and an understanding of what the other side needs. See 7 tips for smarter OT and IT collaboration.
Gathering data from wireless sensors is critical in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) era; using energy harvesting and radio frequency identification (RFID) can provide peace of mind for operators who don’t have to worry about batteries.
Long before Industry 4.0 and cloud-connected architectures became possible, innovators championed PC-based technologies for industrial automation.
