IoT - The Internet of Things describes the networking and autonomisation of devices within the entire value chain. Various communication protocols make it possible for all devices in the real world to be connected via the Internet and, thanks to information and communication technology, to communicate without human intervention. Thus, the world of real objects is merged with the world of data.
This makes it possible to reduce operating costs for e.g. predictive maintenance, rework, logistics or energy costs. Furthermore, it makes it possible to adapt more quickly to customer requirements and to increase flexibility. Existing data is evaluated and stored autonomously and data consistency is guaranteed.
