Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) refers to the use of IoT technologies to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes. Through connecting humans with devices, tools, machines, and robots, IIoT enables intelligent industrial operations using advanced data analytics to transform business outcomes. IIoT is a key enabler in A*STAR’s Future of Manufacturing (FoM) initiative and is expected to contribute to Singapore’s growth as an Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering hub in Asia.
Our IIoT Initiative is developing highly reliable industrial wireless communications, advanced data analytics, and industrial cyber-physical security for cognitive and secure IIoT systems. Many of the innovations are co-developed with industry partners and test-bedded at A*STAR’s Model Factory at Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC) to support technology adoption by companies.
Our Industrial IoT Innovation (I3) Platform brings together the IIoT eco-system to co-innovate in IIoT technologies that have applications beyond the factory floor. As an open innovation platform, I3 bridges the gap between research and industry applications; brings technological solutions to the industry to improve productivity; and creates new products and business opportunities. Based on a public-private partnership model, I3 is currently working together with many companies to accelerate their adoption of various IIoT technologies.
