The three-part series, called " Factory Tomorrow ," showcases the latest innovations in robotics, automation, and connectivity, as well as cutting-edge manufacturing technologies.
"As machines get smarter, manufacturers must continually evolve to meet the increasingly complex environment in which they operate," says Robbie Paul, director of IoT business solutions at Digi-Key. "Growth and investment in industrial automation and digitized systems are the new normal and Digi-Key is committed to helping our customers keep pace with today's ever-changing business landscape."
The three videos are:
- Episode 1: Manufacturing at The Edge - looks at the rise of edge computing, which is bringing complex technologies like machine learning to the point of data capture, enabling faster and more responsive reactions to the data generated by sensors across the factory floor.
- Episode 2: The Rise of Robotics - chronicles the rise of robotics in the manufacturing industry, and how new designs collaborate alongside human workers on the factory floor to create new, high-quality job opportunities across the industry.
- Episode 3: The Intersection of AI and IoT - looks at how artificial intelligence applications can unlock the true potential of IoT applications. From real-time analytics to connected sensors, predictive maintenance, and supply chain automation, this combination of technologies is a massive step forward for the industry as a whole.
The first of three videos in the series, "Manufacturing at the Edge," is now live on Digi-Key's website, and available in all local languages served. The second video will be released in August, and the third will be available in September.
The videos are sponsored by process and industrial automation company Banner Engineering and industrial connectivity provider Weidmüller.
