The new Technology Roadmap „Process Sensors 4.0“

The technology roadmap "Process sensors 4.0" updated recently shows the requirements for smart process sensors – from simple temperature sensors up to complex measuring systems being developed today. This kind of "smart" sensor provides services within a network and uses information from it. This is a prerequisite for the implementation of cyber-physical systems (CPS) within future automation concepts for the process industry.
