IoT is an essential part of the automation equation, providing the connectivity for robots and devices to communicate with us and with each other. We can already see automation in action across Aotearoa, with the potential for massive growth over the next decade.
Throughout August we’re focusing on the technology that will help businesses on the journey towards automation. Check out the various events and articles.
