Product Safety in the Present Day Industrial Revolution
Heightened product automation, large scale digitization, and overall increases in device capabilities via Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are all hallmarks of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0. Defined by emerging technology breakthroughs in a wide range of fields, from robotics to artificial intelligence, to 3D printing, IIoT provides the capability to create time and cost efficiencies through smart data capture and predictive analysis. Capitalizing on the benefits of IIoT requires collaboration across a wide range of industry stakeholders – with safety compliance of products being a key consideration.
