The Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0) is expected to change how we live, work, and communicate with creative technologies. It is also likely to change the things we value and the way we value them in the future. IR 4.0 introduces new technology creatively what has been called the “smart factory,” in which cyber-physical systems monitor the physical processes of the factory and make decentralized decisions. Industry 4.0 is a name for the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing, games, tangible technologies, mobile media and social and object-oriented reserach. The physical systems become Internet of Things (IoT), communicating and cooperating both with each other and with humans in real time via the wireless web. According to The World Economic Forum, an estimated 65% of kids enrolling in primary education today will end up working in jobs that havenâ€TMt been created yet. The Internet plays a central role in our society. The IoT refers to the use of intelligently connected devices and systems to leverage data gathered by embedded sensors and actuators in machines and other physical objects. The IoT is a hot topic in the industry. These architectural design efforts aim to directly address the challenges that arise from the increasing demands for highly scalable content distribution, from accelerated growths of mobile devices, from wide deployment of IoT, and from the need to secure the global Internet. The IoT represents an evaluation of Machine to Machine (M2M) through the coordination of multiple vendorsâ€TM machines, devices and appliances connected to the Internet through multiple networks.
