Industry 4.0 and digitalization is on everyone's lips. But what do you actually understand by these buzzwords?
The short video explains the most common terms used in Industry 4.0 as simply and clearly as possible:
Cloud computing
Industry 4.0
Internet of things
Digital factory and digital twin
Smart person

The video also points out that new dangers can arise from networking and that the areas of safety (e.g. occupational safety) and security (e.g. cybersecurity) can therefore interact.

The English version was produced in cooperation with the ISSA Section for Machine and System Safety.
