Industry 4.0 concerns the transformation of industrial processes through the integration of modern technologies such as sensors, communication, and computational processing. Technologies such as Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, Machine Learning, and Data Analytics are considered to be the different drivers necessary for the transformation. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an application of IoT in industries to modify the various existing industrial systems. IIoT links the automation system with enterprise, planning and product lifecycle.This course has been organized into the following modules:INTENDED AUDIENCE : CSE, IT, ECE, EE, Instrumentation Engg, Industrial Engineering, Industry ProfessionalsPRE-REQUISITES : Basic knowledge of computer and internetINDUSTRY SUPPORT : All Industrial Sectors

    Suppose, i can start a new mineral water plant in my land . So, this system is fully automated means industry 4.0 type full digitising, more accuracy, mechanical efficiency strong,less manpower,work with less time, more & fast production, machine to machine work with communicate, interconnected of lot of sensors to machine to man as it, i could open the plant with this system .
