MEMS Journal, Inc. publishes the only independent publication devoted to providing comprehensive coverage of the latest developments in the rapidly emerging MEMS industry. MEMS Journal covers the most critical developments in the MEMS industry to ensure that their subscribers explore and take advantage of the latest investment, commercialization and partnership opportunities.
MEMS Journal would like to engage The SearchLite to conduct market research relative to technology trends and market demand drivers for advanced manufacturing-based sensor applications within the over-arching context of Industry 4.0. The focus will be specifically on process sensors used during manufacturing, not embedded sensors in finished products. The results of the research will be used by MEMS Journal to further establish themselves as thought leaders on this subject and also provide platform opportunities to monetize the research findings in the form of customized research offerings or other services.
The Internet of Things (IoT), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 can be understood in terms of their relationship to each other. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the broadest concept, encompassing all applications of smart, connected devices whether it be smart homes, smart cities, smart grids, smart cars, smart factories, etc. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the subset of IoT which deals with application of smart, connected devices applied in industrial production systems including energy generation, water treatment and all aspects of process, batch and discrete manufacturing. Industry 4.0 is the subset of IIoT more narrowly related to discrete manufacturing.
