Introduction to the Industrial Internet of Things

Provided by: ToolingU

The class provides an overview of how sensors, smart devices, and the data they create can transform factory operations. It also explores how cyber-physical systems (CPS) and human-machine interfaces (HMI) are changing the way people interact with the growing network of technology in the workplace. The class also introduces digital manufacturing innovations, such as the digital thread and digital twin, and addresses concerns related to cybersecurity. It is now common for smart technology to provide detailed real-time data that creates precise instructions and feedback, enabling manufacturers to improve quality and efficiency, and to anticipate supply chain and production needs. As this technology drives Industry 4.0, an understanding of the IIoT is vital to current and future manufacturers.
