With the promise of greater operational efficiency, Industry 4.0 adoption continues to grow as companies use more IoT devices. This is expected to continue with analysts reporting rapid growth in Industry 4.0 and predicting it will reach approx. USD 155.30 billion by 2024. The main benefit of this connected ecosystem is the ability to access real-time data that can be used to improve operational efficiency. However, this brings its own challenges. All these devices have sensors that require efficient, safe powering – often in hostile locations.
In this article, Ilika will look at how solid state batteries can meet this need and provide autonomous power to the various sensors used in Industry 4.0 – even those in the most difficult environments.
