Modern elevator technology is more than a century old and generally very reliable. But ThyssenKrupp is using Microsoft Azure to harness major IIoT advancements and take their elevators to the next level of reliability and performance.
The latest industrial revolution is enabling concrete customized production for customers, even for one-unit lots. We analyze the six trends that will determine how integrated industry develops in the coming years.
Glenn Longley from FreeWave Technologies discusses details of industrial IoT applications in a recent paper and describes the power of IIoT data, how wireless fits into the IIoT space, and security considerations to keep in mind.
Control systems are at the foundation of today’s industrial applications, but attention needs to be taken when applying security to avoid compromising the system’s function and fundamental requirements.
