Z-BRE4K mapped on
IoT - Internet of Things

General desciption of IoT - Internet of Things:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.  (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_of_things)



In the framework of Z-BRE4K, an IoT approach is applied to integrate end user machines to the Z-BRE4K platform. Through IoT gateways deployed at the shop floor, machine components are enabled to communicate their conditions, sending sensors data to the cloud where they are stored and analysed to provide predictive maintenance related information.
