Industry 4.0 refers to automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. From innovative research, challenges, solutions and strategies to real-world case studies, the aim of this edited book is to focus on the nine pillars of technology that are supporting the transition to Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing. The nine pillars include the internet of things, cloud computing, autonomous and robotics systems, big data analytics, augmented reality, cyber security, simulation, system integration, and additive manufacturing. A key role is played by the industrial IoTs and state-of-the-art technologies such as fog and edge computing, advanced data analytics, innovative data exchange models, artificial intelligence, machine learning, mobile and network technologies, robotics and sensors. This book is a useful resource for an audience of academic and industry researchers and engineers, as well as advanced students in the fields of information and communication technologies, robotics and automation, big data analytics and data mining, machine learning, artificial intelligence, AR/VR/ER, cybersecurity, cyber physical systems, sensing and robotics with a focus on Industry 4.0, and smart manufacturing.
