How manufacturers can benefit from IoT and cloud-connected robots

Smart Australian manufacturers look for new ways to innovate, and a significant new innovation opportunity is emerging via the Internet of Things (IoT) and the cloud.

By connecting robots to IoT and the cloud, manufacturers can reap even bigger efficiency gains from automated production. For example, this could enable them to pinpoint production errors, program robots to do multiple tasks and know when to change output levels much earlier.

This technology is already here. Cloud solutions distributor rhipe and automation company Omron have partnered to give an Omron robot computer ‘vision’. This work has provided manufacturers with a path to achieving real results from IoT.

To help manufacturers understand what’s possible, rhipe has created a guide to combining robotics, IoT and the cloud.

The guide covers:

  • How IoT and cloud-connected robotics fits into the manufacturing landscape
  • Key use cases
  • How to get started
  • How digitally-augmented robotics relates to digital twin technology
