How to Translate Automation Lessons from Smart Cities Back into Manufacturing

Many cities are still learning on-the-go as they attempt to integrate isolated systems and gather data from disparate sources.

Many cities are still learning on-the-go as they attempt to integrate isolated systems and gather data from disparate sources. Thanks to the dropping costs of automation technologies, it is now cost-effective for cities to coordinate assets, make them intelligent and make them work together.

In this 20-minute video, Tim Sowell of Schneider Electric stresses how recognizing the importance of industry standards surrounding devices and communications is critical in how quickly smart cities—and smart manufacturing—can realize efficiencies from future modernization. Cities are learning from the lead of manufacturing, but manufacturing is also learning from the unique challenges many cities face in managing energy, safety and security.
