Planning for the future and beyond
The fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, brought by digital transformations in manufacturing is changing how factories operate on a day to day basis. The use of advanced digital technologies; including artificial intelligence, robotics, big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) is helping to gradually build digital enterprises with physical products at the core, supported by data-based, innovative services. 90 percent of 500 executives surveyed by Forbes Insights stressed the importance of IoT for the future of their companies.
TE Connectivity provides a range of solutions to create the digital factories of tomorrow. From smart devices for intelligent detection and repair of faults to connectivity solutions allowing high speed data transfer (1GB/s), TE’s innovations are tested at their own factory before being offered to customers.
The impact of Industry 4.0 technologies on the automotive industry is significant. One of the concepts that has penetrated the industry is “connected mobility”. Rather than focusing on a product-centric approach, companies are now being encouraged to shift towards “providing digitally-enabled solutions” for vehicle users. Companies such as Uber and Lyft are an example of how mobile technology is used for a pay-per-ride service with conventional cars. The future of connected mobility, however, relies on manufacturing a new generation of cars with advanced connectivity capabilities. TE is transforming automotive industry by connecting cars not only to other cars, but to roadway infrastructure and smart homes. Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) solutions offered by TE:
