How the IoT became the IIoT

Manufacturing operations are predicted to be one of the biggest winners of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) transformation. Using condition monitoring sensors and software, innovators have an opportunity to wirelessly leapfrog over brownfield infrastructure, automate asset-health data collection, and feed it into predictive maintenance analytics engines. Machine failures could be predicted well in advance and condition-based maintenance would become the norm, allowing operations to achieve higher uptime and greater overall efficiency.

Here’s a look at how it all started and where we may be headed.
