Industrial internet of things: Digitisation, value networks and changes in work
Publication date: 1 May 2018 | Report language: EN
The Industrial internet of things (IIoT) is a concept that refers to the integration of complex physical machinery with networked sensors and software in industry. The internet serves as the channel through which information flows and through which objects in a factory (and between factories) are connected. It is a subsection of the broader concepts of Internet of Things and Industry 4.0. IIoT factories becoming smart factories can be considered game changing. IIoT is one of five of such game changing technologies that have been studied for Eurofound in a series of reports on the impact of game changing technologies on production processes and work in the manufacturing industry.
