Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions are poised to transform many industry verticals including healthcare, retail, automotive, and transport. For many industries, IIoT will significantly improve reliability, production, and customer satisfaction. While, IIoT will initially improve existing processes and augmented current infrastructure, the ultimate goal will be to realize entirely new, and dramatically improved products and services. Successful companies will be those that understand how and where IoT technologies and solutions will drive opportunities for operational improvements, new and enhanced products and services, as well as completely new business models.
Emerging areas for industrial robotics include Robotics as a Service, Cloud Robotics, and General Purpose Robotics. The fifth generation (5G) of wireless technology will provide the communications and bandwidth necessary to allow various industries to leverage the next phase of robotics evolution. Industrial users will capitalize upon new and enhanced 5G enabled robotics capabilities to enable new use cases and improved work flow. Many business processes will change as enterprise becomes more savvy about the flexibility of robotics uninhibited by bandwidth constraints.
Cloud Robotics is distinguished from the general field of electromechanical automation through its use of Teleoperation as well as reliance upon various Cloud Computing technologies such as computing and storage as well as the emerging cloud-based business models enabling Robotics as a Service. In addition, Cloud Robotics will benefit greatly from Edge Computing technologies, such as Mobile Edge Computing, as well as commercial introduction of 5G. One of the important advantages of the Cloud Robotics market is the ability to make robotics and industrial automation equipment available to a much wider spectrum of users. One of the ways in which this is accomplished is via open APIs, which enable abstraction of the robotics control plane from the application user interface. This means that customers do not need to use proprietary user interfaces for robotic controllers.
An essential component of 5G networks in support of industrial automation, Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) facilitates optimization of fifth generation network resources including focusing communications and computational capacity where it is needed the most. Without MEC, 5G would continue to rely upon back-haul to centralized cloud resource for storage and computing, diminishing much of the otherwise positive impact of latency reduction enabled by 5G. In other words, MEC enables users and devices to store/access much higher volumes of data by way of direct access to the Internet rather than relying upon transport through the core of cellular networks.
