Troy’s Automation Alley, a technology and manufacturing business association and Industry 4.0 knowledge center, plans to release its 2020 Technology in Industry Report on Monday, April 27 at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. For the first time, the event will include hands-on demonstration areas.
The report is designed to serve as a guide to Industry 4.0 implementation. The Technology in Industry Reveal will take place from 7:30-11 a.m. and include networking with an anticipated 300 technology and manufacturing professionals as well as a strolling breakfast.
The demonstration areas will allow attendees to interact with collaborative robots, augmented reality, digital strategy, and artificial intelligence, courtesy of Behco, OPS Solutions/Light Guide Systems, Worksighted, Soothsayer, and other companies yet to be announced.

All attendees will receive a copy of the report, titled “Seeing Industry 4.0 through a 2020 Lens.” It will include case studies and white papers written in collaboration with academic and industry leaders on Industry 4.0 trends impacting companies including artificial intelligence, 5G, the convergence of information technology and operational technology, supply chains and big data, Industry 4.0 data regulation and protection, the impact of digital twins, additive manufacturing, Industry 4.0 and the global workforce, and more.
