Industry 4.0 was humming along nicely in early 2020. Cloud-connected, data-driven smart factories were adding rugged computers, machine automation, and IoT solutions that had the ability to deliver insights in everything from energy consumption on the factory floor to robotic maintenance alerts to supply chain intelligence. 

But the COVID-19 pandemic brought unforeseen challenges to manufacturing, as companies were thrown a steady stream of gnarly curveballs. Many were forced to radically transform their processes and industrial computing technology, altering workflow and output, and even changing what they were producing. Manufacturers had to quickly implement new safety protocols, such as temperature checks and social distancing, just to keep their factories open and the workforce safe.  

Grabbing Data at the Edge

To find out more about the current state of Industry 4.0 automation and the impact of the pandemic, the IoT Integrator editors talked with Lisa Groeneveld, Co-Founder and Chair of the Board at OnLogic, a Vermont-based company that specializes in rugged, industrial computers and end-to-end IoT solutions. 

Groeneveld shares insights on creating a successful IoT project (spoiler alert: you can’t do it alone). She also describes how her company enabled one client to rapidly pivot to help build ventilators during the initial COVID-19 outbreak, and how OnLogic successfully reimagined its own operations in a world forever changed by this pandemic. 

Hear from Groeneveld about the importance of IoT in industrial computing, how integrators fit into the ecosystem, and how technologies such as AI and machine learning play a significant role in manufacturing. Listen to the IoT Integrator Wire podcast.
