The Internet of Things, commonly referred to as IoT, is a system of physical devices, vehicles, buildings, and other objects that are connected to the internet. These devices are equipped with sensors, software, and other technologies that allow them to collect and exchange data.

IoT has been a game-changer for the manufacturing industry. By collecting data from machines, IoT can be used for predictive maintenance, anomaly detection, and downtime prevention. In other words, IoT can help manufacturers avoid equipment failures, increase productivity, and reduce costs.
