The industry revolution is accelerating. It took almost 100 years to move from the time the 1st mechanical loom was brought to operation until the opening of the 1st assembly line in Cincinnati, which introduced the division of labor and the mass production with the help of electrical energy. And another 100 years to introduce the first PLC that initiated the digitalization of the factories.
But it is going to take only 50 years to come to a connected factory, which called "Industry 4.0". In this presentation we will discuss how I4.0 needs 5G to convert to "Distributed Connected Factory"
