22 Apr Industry 4.0 in the Coronavirus Crisis
The present crisis does not only concern productive sectors, social classes or countries and is having a great impact on the whole planet. In this context of crisis, Industry 4.0 shows us once again that it is of vital importance for the whole of the world’s economy and society in containing the pandemic.
THE ROLE OF THE INDUSTRY 4.0 IN THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
Within all this uncertainty, digitalisation is making its way to show us all the benefits it offers companies: a greater capacity to react, the implementation of mechanisms to mitigate the negative effects of the virus and the development of solutions to combat it directly in the health system.
These are some of the most representative examples:
- Robotics: robots have become assistants to the police in controlling the use of masks, temperature, use in public areas or in the health system preventing humans from having to be exposed to the virus.
- 3D printing: both companies engaged in other types of productive activities and anonymous people have joined together to create masks, visors, protective screens and even respirators.
- Big Data: Big Data applications are essential to manage the huge amount of data in healthcare facilities in an optimal and efficient way. In addition, they provide real-time solutions that reduce healthcare costs and mortality rates.
- Artificial Intelligence: the algorithms for predicting or anticipating new cases help to anticipate the necessary healthcare equipment, which helps to optimise existing materials.
