Internet of Things: Manufacturing IoT from the Factory Floor

Within the next 6 years, companies in the Asia-Pacific area alone will increase manufacturing budgets from $9 billion to $57.96 billion. "Brilliant factories" are on our horizon, and the smart devices we love now have nothing on the next generation of industrial internet in manufacturing. With the future of this evolving industry in mind, the newest whitepaper from the Application Developers Alliance explores:

  • The varying definitions of IoT in the manufacturing industry.

  • Best practices for direct IoT-factory integration.

  • Opportunities and challenges for developers to contribute.

This paper is part of a series of papers designed to help developers understand the many facets of the Internet of Things that are connecting to the Internet.
