The Internet of Things (IoT) is building an exciting network of devices embedded with electronics, software, and sensors that enable them to exchange and analyse data. As a result, entrepreneurs and manufacturers are rethinking product design, exploring ways to transform ordinary ‘things’ into innovative products.
IoT has opened up a world of opportunity for the manufacturing industry. Not only does it offer the chance to make electronic products more user friendly and intelligent, but also the chance to turn products with no electronic components into connected devices.
While consumers are excited about new connected technologies that enhance their lives, IoT is not just about consumer products, it also drives efficiencies across businesses and in manufacturing, delivering responsive solutions that improve productivity, performance and saves money. IoT is disrupting and transforming everything from how we power our nations and our homes, through travel, transport and logistics, to healthcare and retail.
It is a very exciting time to be involved in electronics manufacturing and here at EC Electronics we are proud to be helping our clients innovate, taking IoT products and solutions to market. In this guide we explore some of the latest trends in electronics, looking at how IoT is impacting the electronics manufacturing industry.
