The Internet of Things is the connection of the physical world to the digital world. It is a network of intelligent computers, devices, and objects that collect and share huge amounts of data. The collected data is sent to a central cloud-based service (like AWS IoT) where it is aggregated with other data and then shared with end users in a helpful way.
The application of the IoT to the manufacturing industry is called the IIoT (or Industrial Internet or Industry 4.0). IIoT is being called the second industrial revolution. The technology will revolutionize manufacturing in ways never seen before. This infographic highlights the area where IIoT will have the greatest impact on the industry.
