“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said ‘a faster horse’” (Henry Ford)
The term Industry 4.0 was coined by the German government to describe a type of computer-assisted manufacturing in which all the processes are interconnected by the Internet of Things (IoT). The challenge of this new industrial revolution is to develop systems that enable the flood of data generated by intelligent factories to be turned into useful, valuable information for creating more flexible and individualised production models.
Companies that want to have a significant presence in future markets must implement big data systems, as well as the use of intelligent robots that can be trained to keep learning and offering users new services.
Perfect synchronicity between reality and the virtual world opens up new possibilities for manufacturers and brands. Through the workshops we conduct at ubiquo we help organisations to take the step towards digital transformation of their business models. Ubox technology makes it possible to integrate the potential of big data and artificial intelligence (AI) into a company’s value chain, without its programmers having to acquire new or complex knowledge.
To contribute to the development of Industries 4.0 we have also created a development environment and a marketplace. Through these, programmers can develop their own applications using Ubox technology, share them and take advantage of those designed by other users.
