This month's IoT NY is in held in conjunction with Time-Series Data NY. For all things time-series data related outside the realm of IoT, join here: https://www.meetup.com/time-series-data-new-york/
The Fourth Industrial Revolution. Smart Factories. Industry 4.0.
Call it what you want, one of the biggest market opportunities for IoT deployments and applications lies within manufacturing. Nowadays our products are almost always assembled by machine: plastic extruders, sheet metal stampers, textile spinning machines, robotic arms programmed for specific tasks. The machines and equipment vary, depending on the product being made, with the manufacturing processes overseen by humans. Until recently, the performance parameters of the machines (e.g., pressure, humidity, moisture, temperature, rotational speed) have been largely invisible to us. In other words, we need to capture data. Consequently, the efficiency of our processes is jeopardized by the fact that we don't know what is happening at all times along our assembly lines. In other words, we don't capture data at all or if we do, we don't put it to actionable use. This is why manufacturing is one of IoT's biggest markets. With the right data collection, processing, storage and analytics solution in place, companies can save hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars through process optimization, maximizing resource efficiency and, ultimately, increasing productivity.
