Industry 4.0

Introduction

Today’s highly increasing competitiveness over the industry demands high quality and most consistent products with a competitive price. To address this challenge number of industries considering various new product designs and integrated manufacturing techniques in parallel with the use of automated devices. The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with Industrial Automation, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities.

To address this challenge number of industries considering various new product designs and integrated manufacturing techniques in parallel with the use of automated devices through the IoT solutions.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as “connected devices” and “smart devices”), buildings, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and network connectivity which enable these objects to collect and exchange data. The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with Industrial Automation, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities.

In this course, we focus hands on method to the actual IoT development kit. Each chapters require you to work with hardware and software, you will be provide each IoT Development Kit that consist of Raspberry Pi for you to get ready to solve industrial problem statements. You will learn the solution on how to embedded IoT for your production ecosystem from industrial activity tracker collect, monitor the production output, control it and then combine all together into automation. The course also for you to decide the level of automation for your project, you will learn the approach of Industry 4.0 ecosystem through the technology pillars and next additional design parameters to ensure you are designing a standard industrial IoT solution.

By the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Familiar with the industrial integration using the standard communication and industrial best method available
  • Learn to combine software and hardware to monitor and control the data
  • Focus on prototyping the IoT application for your use case
  • Level up skill by practice, the course emphasize hand on at every module to ensure deep understanding and interactive learning

Target Audience
Technical Executives and Engineering Executives
Prerequisite
  • Familiar with basic programming & with Internet technologies (such as TCP/IP & HTTP) would help
  • Basic knowledge in electronics is helpful but not mandatory
  • No prior knowledge about the Internet of Things is required
  • Students are encouraged to combine with IoT Prototype Development kit package so they can later bring back to continue working with prototype.
