Industrial Internet of Things Merging Robots, Automation & Supercomputers

The Integration of Robots and Digital Industrial Systems

IndustryTap has covered the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), a projected $15 trillion dollar industry. One major impetus in the buildout of the IIoT is the development and networking of increasingly capable industrial robots and robotic systems and increasingly, supercomputers and software.

The patent market is currently awash with thousands of new patents related to industrial robots and the IIoT and Japan, China, India, South Korea, and the United States seem to have an insatiable demand for this new technology.

Some of the more interesting areas of inquiry related to the IIoT includes:

  • designing intelligent embedded systems for condition monitoring of industrial robots and systems
  • kinematics of industrial robots
  • robot calibration for industrial robots
  • design and fabrication of industrial robots in the automotive industry
  • industrial robots from concept to modeling, design and implementation
  • legged robots and walking machines
  • teleoperators and robotic vehicles
  • reducing the energy consumption of industrial robots in manufacturing systems

All of these areas of inquiry are conspiring to create robots that are expected to be 16% less costly to employers than humans by 2025, according to the Boston Consulting Group.

The following video “Discover the Power of the Industrial Internet of Things” provides examples of integrated IIoT systems.
