In this report, Technavio highlights the emergence of IoT and industry 4.0 as a key trend driving the global industrial robots market in the automotive industry:
IoT and Industry 4.0
Internet of Things (IoT) is an interconnection of several devices be it mechanical or digital, which allow data to be transferred from end-to-end without human interventions. At present, IoT has already been commercialized in various applications, thereby initiating an industrial revolution with the advent of Industry 4.0. Also, IoT is further simplifying the connectivity techniques using internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) based protocol addressing systems.
The interoperability and data readability issues have found better solutions with the advent of IoT. This technology has revolutionized the world of robotics by streamlining the working of robots with smart factory. A network of robots can connect to the cloud and provide insightful data from mass data. A major application of such technology interpretation is in asset management and maintenance to optimize equipment and process efficiency, reduce the cost, and mitigate the risk of downtime.
“Industry 4.0 and IoT have been gaining traction in automotive manufacturing facilities. The support extended by governments to modernize manufacturing facilities has encouraged OEMs in Germany, Italy, France, the US, and China to enhance productivity. It is expected that the adoption of IoT and Industry 4.0 in the manufacturing plants will increase the demand for industrial robots in the automotive industry,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on robotics.
