      Artificial intelligence (AI) and the power of edge computing have touched every sector, and the fourth industrial revolution has accelerated the growth of such transformative technologies. Now these technologies must overcome even greater challenges within the industrial sector.

      It will take significant innovation and collaboration to address challenges such as industrial waste, energy demands, supply chain, and skills shortages in the coming decade. Technology holds tremendous power to overcome these obstacles by shaping how and where goods are manufactured in the future.

      Industrialization has always spelled opportunity, though the shape of that opportunity changes with the times. In this keynote presentation from embedded world 2024, join Analog Devices’ Fiona Treacy in exploring this opportunity, and learn how we can rise to the challenges ahead—together.

      Preparing for a Twofold Energy Demand

      The U.S. industrial sector, including commercial buildings, consumes about half of the country’s energy1—and global power demand is projected to double by 2050 across all sectors, including manufacturing2. While renewable sources can carry some of that energy burden, new efficiencies must also be realized. Advances in sensing, actuation, precision measurement, computing power, and intelligence at the edge can help enable data-driven transformation.

      Advancement of Real-Time Aware Robotics

      Improvements in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), traditional robots, and production line capabilities are helping to optimize industrial settings by making it safer and more efficient for robots to collaborate with humans—or even, in some cases, to completely automate workflows. High-speed connectivity and open-source platforms will continue to play a key enabling role.

      Digital Factories: New vs. Retrofitted

      Today’s new digital factories leverage seamless connectivity, adaptive control, and intelligent interpretation of the factory floor to deploy advanced robotics and automation. Retrofitting legacy factories presents a bigger challenge due to space, cabling, and infrastructure limitations—but it is possible to engineer a way forward through collaboration and system-level solutions.
