The industrial world is moving steadily towards Industry 4.0 and embracing the technologies that will define this era – a move which, in effect, means increased connectedness between machines and the harnessing of data analytics to enhance operational efficiencies.
While there is a lot of literature on the topic of industry 4.0 – or the fourth industrial revolution – papers have tended to focus on the general implications for industries and their fixed equipment.
However, it is also prudent to examine the implications this new era will have for automated and mobile machines.
This paper discusses some examples from ifm’s customers where mobile machine operators across different industries are using industry 4.0 technologies to reduce operational risks, optimise operations and improve the life of their equipment.
