Conversation on Industrial IoT

An exclusive panel of speakers from Schneider Electric, RS Components and Eurotherm at the H&C Lab

We were pleased to be joined by leadership of Schneider Electric, RS Components and Eurotherm. The candid discussion covered the following topics:

  • How IIoT is transforming manufacturing
  • Why 4.0 is a step change from Industry 3
  • What is the role of Data Science and Machine Learning
  • Where are the barriers to adoption and how they can be overcome
  • Approaches to data capture and connectivity
  • Strategies for Cyber Security and governance
  • Techniques for iterative on-site development

Guests also experienced a ground-breaking image recognition system co-created by H&C in partnership with RS Components.

The H&C Lab is situated on the 5g and NB-IoT test bed, and we presented some potential applications of this connectivity.
