With the emergence of the Internet of Things and the wide spread of connectivity in the factories, a complete new set of machines, processes and production organization can be put together to boost manufacturing and more generally industry productivity. This Industrial IoT composes one of the 4 key pillars of the industry of the future, together with Human – Robots collaboration, Virtual Reality and Additive manufacturing.

Based on the actual first deployments of a new connectivity system called SenseForge, the following paper explores how wireless sensors can continuously monitor processes and equipment of all types, including legacy non-born digital machines, and thanks to local computing power, provide breakthrough improvement in efficiency of the industry processes.
