IoT for Industry 4.0

Alma Automotive provides comprehensive consulting and professional services for analysis, design and development of end-to-end  SW and HW for IoT applications.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment. Data and analytics are fueling digital transformation, creating monetization opportunities, improving the customer experience and reshaping industries.

Industry 4.0 is a name for the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing.
Industry 4.0 creates what has been called “smart factory”.

IoT will help early detection of defects and production failures, therefore enabling their prevention and increasing productivity, quality, and agility benefits that have significant competitive value, such as reducing the time to market and managing big data analytics.
