Imagine a highway where cars are able to safely navigate to their destinations without a driver. Imagine a home where an elderly patient’s health is closely monitored by her hospital physician. Imagine a city that significantly reduces waste through sensor-embedded water pipes, buildings, parking meters and more.
These are no longer a part of the distant future. These scenarios are starting to happen now, through the convergence of machines and intelligent data in what is called the Industrial Internet. The Industrial Internet will transform industry through intelligent, interconnected objects that dramatically improve performance, lower operating costs and increase reliability.
