Industrial Market Transiting Towards Automation

The industrial market is undergoing a large-scale transition towards a new age of automation driven by recent technological advances. At MontaVista, we believe that the Internet of Things (IoT) has a significant impact on modern industrial technologies.

Back to the 2000s, Machine-to-machine (M2M) technology was first seen in the manufacturing and industrial sectors, paving the way for IoT to thrive. The advantages of connectivity were soon recognized and driving the industrial market towards Industry 4.0 in which productivity and efficiency are improved considerably. As an example, real-time monitoring with IoT sensors and Cloud networks allows getting critical insights into the factory floors and data-driven optimization on an organization level.

As an embedded Linux market leader, MontaVista team has worked with various customers and industrial use cases. We understand the vital role of maintaining legacy hardware and software baselines in the long-term for manufacturing products. We have expert support and technology needed to solve major challenges of developing state-of-the-art embedded applications and designs.

MontaVista's View of Key Trends in the Industrial market
