Smart manufacturing and smart factories rely on the building blocks of Industry 4.0, namely the internet of things and cloud computing, which allow machines, sensors and people to connect and communicate with each other in real time
Big data brings opportunities for more human-machine interactions, leading to business intelligence and analytic capabilities powering instructions to the physical world through networks of intelligent devices. With this industrial connectivity, we see the supply chain talking to the production line, manufacturing becomes more versatile, production leaner, maintenance more efficient and running costs lower. Stay tuned to this hub for all posts and content relating to Industry 4.0.

This is way out of my experience where mg and ug were more common, you may need to send some samples for evaluation :)
However from my experiences which may translate in scale?
On the 'in'...
I was wondering if you shutdown / Startup the core 3 like a regular RPI ie sudo shutdown the have to cycle the power to boot back up or does it incorporate a mechanism like an at power supply for switching...
@SvenSager many thanks for the info! Updated the article.
Hi pvdhyden - The RePi connect is based on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3, more details can be found here https://revolution.kunbus.com/revpi-connect/
Is this a product of the RPi foundation, or based on RPi compute module with OEM hardware, or inspired on RPi compute module and in fact an OEM product?
In this presentation I will show how to backup the firmware and also how to flash an update to the latest "Stretch" finishing off with the usual Update / Upgrade etc, oh and a quick method to gain back some desperately needed EMMC Flash space.

Advances in NFC proximity sensing means that you can now use smart phones for accessing your circuit breaker's settings, alarms history, and for fault differentiation.
The landscape for energy generation, distribution, and storage is rapidly evolving to fulfil targets set by government policy and increasing consumption. Heightened efficiency targets, reductions of CO2 emissions, and a focus on renewable energy.
Changes in technology have made it possible to create networks that incorporate an entire manufacturing process. But how is Industry 4.0 improving efficiency across factory floors and beyond?
Technological advancements are shifting factory floors into a new era of possibilities, but as Industry 4.0 increases the use of enhanced machinery, how are we going to keep up with the increased level of interaction within the production process?
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) revolution (or Industry 4.0) is already creating smarter factory floors filled with advanced sensor technologies, machine-to-machine communications, real-time data analytics, and machine learning capabilities.
