It includes adopting the Internet-of-Things (IoT) for manufacturing plants and processes.
In a recent trend survey by the German high-tech association BITKOM, "Industry 4.0" was ranked on position 4 with 42 percent of the questioned companies naming the topic as very relevant for them. This is a massive improvement compared to last year's result when the topic just emerged on position 10 with 22 percent of mentions.
