Industry 4.0 or the 4th Industrial Revolution, is the ongoing automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices, using modern smart technology. Large-scale machine-to-machine communication (M2M) and the internet of things (IoT) are integrated for increased automation, and production of smart machines that can analyze and diagnose issues without the need for human intervention.
Smart Farming uses advanced technologies like IoT, Big Data, Robotics, and AI to improve agricultural productivity, reduce waste, and increase profitability. By enabling Precision Farming, it helps farmers make informed decisions about planting, harvesting, and managing their crops. Additionally, it attracts young talent to the agricultural industry by augmenting or replacing hard labor with robots, sensors, and AI, making farming more efficient, productive, and sustainable than ever before.
Logistics is advancing from traditional pre-planned routes with hub and spoke operations, to real-time routing, where deliveries and drivers can be re-routed, prioritized, tracked, monitored, managed and communicate directly with customers for a more productive efficient delivery service and better customer experience.
Smart Retail is revolutionizing the shopping experience for customers and retailers alike. With the adoption of smart technologies such as smart shelves, smart carts, smart cards, e-attendance, and facial recognition, brick-and-mortar stores are now able to utilize technology to enhance the customer experience and increase their efficiency.
