According to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, manufacturers of all types and sizes are increasingly looking into wearable devices with different sensors that can be used by their workforce. This is made possible by the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) in industrial applications.
Another trend, predictive maintenance is a method of preventing asset failure by analyzing production data to identify patterns and predict issues before they happen. It gives manufacturers the means to optimize maintenance tasks in real time, extending the life of their machinery and avoiding disruption to their operations.
The factories of tomorrow will rely greatly on sensor technology, and they will prominently feature connected tools, utilizing data to guide the tasks of the workforce. 5G’s high capacity, wireless flexibility and low-latency performance make it the perfect choice to support manufacturers.
