Sensorik 4.0: Cloud-based sensor for the internet of things
Sensors are valuable sources of information and can also be used outside of conventional machine and plant engineering to optimize processes and conserve resources.
The Internet of Things opens up new possibilities for networking even sensors spread over long distances. Sensor signals can be provided at exactly the right time in the place where the information contained in the signals can be used profitably.
For example, the detection of filling levels using modern sensor technology is possible in most cases with lesser or greater ease. Where containers are spread over long distances, however, greater cost is often involved with the transmission of sensor signals.
