Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Industry 4.0 represents the fourth industrial revolution in manufacturing and industry. Industry 4.0 is the current industrial transformation with automation, data exchanges, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, robots, big data, industry AI (Artificial Intelligence), IoT (Internet of Thing) and (semi-)autonomous industrial techniques to realize smart industry and manufacturing goals at the intersection of people, new technologies and innovation. It is also a rather vast vision and, increasingly, vast reality that also stretches beyond these technological aspects. Thus, this Special Issue will focus on publishing the patent-based and extended research in Industry 4.0. Authors are encouraged to submit their patent-based and extended research in Industry 4.0 to this Special Issue. From this collection, readers can understand scholars’ research with real applications to Industry 4.0.
