With IoT, virtually any object, person or even animal can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network. For instance, a patient with an implanted heart monitor, a farm animal with a biochip transponder and an automobile with built-in sensors are all achievable thanks to IoT. Eaton's Electrical Sector and Hydraulics Group engineers are actively looking at integrating the IoT across a growing number of products. By capturing data that exists within components and systems and making it available, these products will be able to provide actionable knowledge to improve performance.
The availability of data in the "Internet of Things" is a crucial part of Industry 4.0. Pepperl+Fuchs has developed various concepts which build the bridge from the sensor level up to the cloud—simplifying and accelerating communication. These bridge technologies include WirelessHART, Ethernet for Process Automation and SmartBridge. Pepperl+Fuchs provides products and technologies for the fourth industrial revolution, making data available in the “Internet of Things” and supporting the concept of intelligent objects and connected plants. We are moving towards a new generation of sensors: Sensorik 4.0.
ifm electronic developed a brand new ifm System Solution App which is used to build Internet of Things system easily. This application can process different data sends to common scene main line system from different sensors. This application also support easy access to specification for the data. ifm is providing customized application which allows any programmable software to be embedded into ifm scene main line gateways.
