1. Use artificial intelligence to make production more seamless

AI can be used to help solve common industry challenges, such as product sorting, quality management, food safety, and even creating new recipes.

2. 5G infrastructure will boost robot use in manufacturing

Industrial robots are often connected using a wired system because current conventional wireless speeds cannot support the level of speed needed for large scale cloud computing. A 5G infrastructure that carries more wireless data at much faster speeds could change that.

3. Nestlé samples a selection of IIoT/Industry 4.0

With more than 400 factories around the world, the food and beverage behemoth has to take a practical approach to digital innovations, running a range of pilots that make sense for production.

4. Digital twins: a critical tool

Creating a digital twin of production equipment fueled by real-time data to have a simulated environment in which to experiment with different control strategies for energy consumption.
