Latest Sensors for Applications in Smart Industry

Emerging technologies and services associated with Smart Industry are driving forces behind smart industry. Its infrastructure is evolving by making production more efficient, and machines more intelligently connected. Advances in sensor performance and features, as well as communications technologies such as IO-Link will help manufacturers do things more efficiently, with greater flexibility and in a more environmentally friendly manner, while creating a safer workplace. During this webinar, we will start with an introduction to Smart Industry and provide an overview of predictive maintenance. We will then move on to introducing the latest sensors offered by STMicroelectronics. In the final section of this webinar, we will discuss the IO-Link communication standard and some of our evaluation kits equipped with IO-Link technology.
