IoT gateway TheInternet of Things is the gateway between the cloud of data and the accessoriesin the real world.
The data transfer is bidirectional, and it can sendthousands of information per second. The gateway also has the capacity toprocess the data before it is send to the cloud or to the component. Due tobidirectional data transfer, the data security is high.
AR/VR TheAugmented reality and the virtual reality could be used to troubleshoot faultsand failures in minimum time. The other features are· Increaseefficiency by increasing the workers safety.· Thevirtual reality collects information during the virtual reality experience andcomputes it with the historic data saved in the database. · Developmentcycle reduces with the augmented reality.· Planning time can be reduced using augmentedreality and high-quality planning can be achieved. · Productionsystem need not be modeled full. Steps to build a smart factoryStep 1Create a concept of the smartfactory in a manageable environment.
Planning should be done from the base, startingfrom the product to be produced, followed by the machine and machine toolsrequired to produce the product, and then the dimension of the factory requiredto hold all these machineries along with the storage and buffer facilities. Step 2Scale the basic concept into aprototype by increasing the performance of the tools and machineries.This prototype should hold all the basic information required to construct thefactory. This prototype can be made physical with trial methods or in virtualby simulation software.
Step 3 Once the prototype succeeds, the additionalassets should be added. This include addition of all supporting process. Theconnections between the sequential operations should be validated.
