Introduction to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Head of the IfM's Distributed Information and Automation Laboratory (DIAL), Professor Duncan McFarlane, is a pioneer of the Internet of Things (IoT) and was part of the research team that coined the term "Internet of Things" 20 years ago. Today he and his research team are working with multinational companies to help transform their processes and supply chains by extending IoT technologies to the industrial IoT (IIoT).

In this webinar, Professor McFarlane discusses the opportunities and obstacles that he sees for manufacturers as we head towards the Industrial IoT. He says that the IoT brings many additional challenges for manufacturers, which have widely distributed supply chains, multiple suppliers and mature IT systems, but that there are ways to work around these barriers and catch the next wave of IoT developments.
