Senior IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) Technician 2022-2024
About this course
What is the Industrial Internet of Things?
Technologies 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, have been at the centre of the transformation of production methods in Italy and worldwide for some years now. It is a set of industrial technologies that extend digital logic to objects and physical production, enabling timely and substantially automated control of production processes. IIoT, Industrial Internet of Things, refers in particular to information technologies that enable, through sensors and ‘smart objects’ connected to machines, the collection and management of data and information related to industrial production. PLCs (the PCs that control machine tools), Microcontrollers, System on Chip (such as Arduino), IoT protocols (MQTT the main one), Single-Board computers (such as Raspberry), the OPC UA standard, Edge computing systems, Cloud IoT services, are the technologies that allow machines to be connected, production data to be collected, essential information to be extracted, processed and visually represented, archived and stored for further analysis in relation to data from other business processes.
Why is this useful?
Machinery and 4.0 technologies, thanks also to the contributions and tax benefits made available by the Industry 4.0 plan, are now present in many industrial companies. However, purchasing and installing this type of technology does not immediately equate to using it fully and effectively. In computer systems, hardware is not enough, software is needed to make it work: IIoT applications are the software to manage and use the information produced by machines and as such must be designed and developed by those who have the expertise. It is unthinkable to decommission machines with traditional technologies that continue to do their productive duty: hence the ‘revamping’ projects, which allow traditional machines and plants to be given ‘digital life’ by equipping them with sensors and connecting them to digital production control systems.
Both more structured and smaller companies, the former in-house and the latter through consultancy companies and software houses, increasingly require the input of IIoT solution developers.
The profile: in brief
Developer specialising in applications for controlling industrial production processes and energy systems.
Developer specialised in Industry 4.0 applications, aimed at the collection, management and presentation of data collected by machines and industrial plants for the control of production processes. It defines the most appropriate IoT protocols for interconnecting sensors, microcontrollers, PLCs and automation systems, with equipment and software systems for filtering, storing and processing data in the field or with cloud infrastructures. It creates web interfaces for presenting data in the form of panels and dashboards.
