See Bosch's contribution to Industry 4.0

Connected industry, or Industry 4.0 as it is sometimes called, offers Germany an opportunity to improve its competitiveness as an industrial location. Workstations can be customized according to the needs and abilities of their operators. Cost-effective small batch sizes will also be possible, enabling demand for individualized products to be met. Bosch offers a broad range of solutions for such applications, encompassing the areas of drives, service robots, sensors, software, and predictive maintenance. On the path to connected industry, the supplier of technology and services is active as both a leading provider and a leading exponent. The subject of Industry 4.0 was also the dominant theme of the Hannover Messe 2015.
