The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the use of smart sensors and actuators to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes. Also known as the industrial internet or Industry 4.0, IIoT leverages the power of smart machines and real-time analytics to take advantage of the data that dumb machines have produced in industrial settings for years. Industrial IoT collects and analyses data to deliver insights that help industrial companies become nimbler, making better informed business decisions more quickly than ever before. Also, through the use of equipment and product data points, such as location data, industrial IoT is helping companies transform their manufacturing and industrial processes. This means better quality control, sustainable and green practices, and more efficient, streamlined supply chain management. It also benefits predictive maintenance, field service, energy and facilities management, and asset tracking. The driving philosophy behind IIoT is that smart machines are not only better than humans at capturing and analysing data in real time, they are better at communicating important information that can be used to drive business decisions faster and more accurately.
