One of the main objectives of Industry 4.0 (I4.0) is to generate new opportunities based on the convergence of traditionally isolated technologies such as industrial control systems (ICSs) and information and communication technology (ICT). This presents new opportunities to take advantage of ICT technologies to develop new applications and services related to industrial processes. However, there are a variety of requirements and constraints that must be addressed for the attainment of this purpose. Moreover, the large amount of existing technologies and tools that can cope with these requirements makes the definition and selection of a solution a cumbersome task for traditional industrial workers with a non-ICT focused background. This chapter analyses and describes the main requirements and technologies required to provide a data-based Industry 4.0 solution.
Chapter Preview

The revolution of Industry 4.0 is directly related to several ICS and ICT technologies. However, only when all the different actors involved on the industrial manufacturing process have achieved certain degree of evolution on these technologies, it will be possible to push industry standards one step forward.

This section introduces the most important technologies related to the Industry 4.0.
