Element and Industry 4.0
As we enter the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), otherwise known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), there will be a massive increase in machine to machine communication, using cognitive technology and systems to make their own decisions about solving problems, including artificial intelligence. These forms of robots will see use cases ranging from relatively simple chores such as vacuuming the house, to building the house, picking the regular shopping items as well as delivering them to your door, via autonomous vehicles, both aerially and using land-based solutions.
Clearly when machines are making more fundamental decisions on how and where they operate, safety is a critical factor. Element is embedded with many of the world’s leading manufacturers, standards writing bodies and industry forums to ensure that it matches its services to the needs of the end market to provide the level of health and safety, interoperability and functionality tests and certification services needed for both regulatory and industry approvals.
