Minimising production line downtime is critical in manufacturing, every second of inactivity is money lost. Factory floor flexibility is increasingly important as manufacturers respond to the changing demands of their customers. This type of lean and efficient system is also essential in warehousing, enabling goods to flow seamlessly through the supply chain in our connected world.
Manufacturers and logistic operators are increasingly adopting automation, and innovative high data solutions, such as image processing on their production lines to detect faults, AI powered predictive maintenance, and deploying Autonomous Mobile Robots to manage the movement of goods efficiently.
5G and IoT play a central role in the transition the smart factory and warehouse, with IoT connections are expected to reach 1.5 billion by 2025. Industry 4.0 initiatives are deploying IoT to automate production, streamline operations and increase productivity.
In this session we will take a closer look at how IoT, combined with 5G technologies such machine vision, AI and edge computing, is transforming the sector.
Industry experts will share their first hand experience of their journey to Industry 4.0, including deployment considerations to the benefits delivered.
