Sept. 26, 2016 - TE Connectivity (TE) has joined the OPC Foundation, a vendor-independent non-profit organization which aims to drive the development, maintenance and promotion of Openness Productivity Connectivity — Unified Architecture (OPC UA). This engagement reflects TE’s commitment to the concepts of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)/Industry 4.0, says the company, describing IIoT and Industry 4.0 as the key elements of semantic interoperability and transmission integrity.
Sept. 21, 2016 - Industry 4.0 embraces a collection of technologies and concepts to create “smart factories,” where machines in the production process are able to communicate with each other, both internally and externally via the Cloud. Put simply, connected devices in factories, offices and on the person will become smart networked nodes, interconnected via a standardized network without any hierarchy.
Jul. 15, 2016 - Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology is becoming increasingly pervasive across every type of manufacturing, production and distribution sector. Companies are connecting equipment, machinery, assets and even office equipment and supplies to monitor, track and gather intelligence across all aspects of the business with the ultimate goal of using this insight to improve production and operational efficiency and reduce waste.
Jul. 6, 2016 - Walter Surface Technologies has published an industry white paper, The Internet of Things Hits the Shop Floor: Metalworking in the Age of Connectivity, which explores “how manufacturing has entered the digital age due to the advances in computing capabilities and wireless technology, the ever-increasing access to the internet, and the proliferation of mobile devices.”
Jun. 29, 2016 - The 41st annual Honeywell Users Group (HUG) Americas conference last week brought together 1,200 attendees from 31 countries to discuss the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to solve the toughest problems facing manufacturers. “Those who embrace digital transformation will ultimately win in the global marketplace,” said Bruce Calder, vice president and chief technology officer of Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS), to event attendees of the four-day event.
Jun. 29, 2016 - Kepware Technologies, a software development business focused on industrial connectivity, is welcoming Dell as the newest member of its IoT Alliance. Described it as a strategic network comprised of “leading IoT solutions providers,” the alliance is “committed to growing and shaping the global IoT industry through smart technology, thought leadership, and education initiatives.”
Jun. 7, 2016 - Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence North America has launched its new Integrated Solutions strategic business unit, dedicated to Smart Factory systems for advanced manufacturing.
Jun. 2, 2016 - A new global collaboration between IBM and Cisco, announced today, aims to provide instant Internet of Things (IoT) insight at the edge of the network. The parties say that now, businesses and organizations in remote and autonomous locations will be able to tap the combined power of IBM’s Watson IoT and business analytics technologies and Cisco’s edge analytics capabilities to “more deeply understand and act on critical data on the network edge.”
Jun. 2, 2016 - The Internet of Things (IoT) has already transformed the world of business — offering new opportunities to compete in the market, enabling companies to change business models and creating far greater insight into customer needs.
May 4, 2016 - Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) says it has established a new business unit to help manufacturers harness the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and more rapidly deploy technologies that will allow them to better manage and analyze data, “making their operations safer, more reliable and more efficient.”
Apr. 18, 2016 - In both manufacturing and logistics, the primary business challenges nearly always include identifying hidden costs and increasing productivity. Enter the Industrial Internet of Things, or IIoT, which is essentially a series of connected solutions that help manufacturers and logistics companies improve productivity and cut costs. As part of the IIoT, manufacturing and other industrial companies are increasingly gathering data from a variety of sources — such as machines, forklifts, position sensors, delivery trucks and more — that then reveal bottlenecks and wasteful operations.
Nov. 11, 2015 - Carleton University and Cisco Canada have announced a $1.8-million grant over the next nine years to establish a Research Chair in Sensor Technology for the Internet of Things (IoT), appointing Dr. Mohamed Ibnkahla to the position.
Aug. 4, 2015 - Today Cisco announced the winners of the first ever Internet of Things (IoT) World Forum Young Women’s Innovation Grand Challenge.
Jul. 14, 2015 - GE Intelligent Platforms Software has announced a new production optimization project to connect all of BP’s oil wells globally to the Industrial Internet.
Jun. 30, 2015 - In North American industries that are continuously adapting new technologies, Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) are two concepts gaining meaningful momentum. While IoT covers a broad range of application areas for highly-connected devices — from the plant floor all the way to the consumer — Industry 4.0, as the name implies, is entirely focused on manufacturing. The philosophy behind it highlights the ideal of the smart factory: a network of cyber-physical operations monitoring physical plant processes and establishing advanced monitoring for better troubleshooting and improved decision-making.
