Industry 4.0 and IIoT

Industry 4.0 is the new buzzword for the combination of industry, automation and the current Internet of Things (IoT) technology.

IIoT – Industrial use of IoT Technology. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is another word for Industry 4.0. You could say that IoT is consumer oriented with applications like Smart Home, Home Automation, etc., while IIoT has more industrial focus and applications.

The term "Industrie 4.0" was first used in 2011 in Germany.


Industry 4.0 is also called the fourth industrial revolution.
