Industry 4.0 road map to promote IoT

The government plans to promote the application of internet of things (IoT) in its policy road map to prepare for Industry 4.0.

The Industry Ministry will soon issue the road map, which will detail necessary efforts to support automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies.

Minister Airlangga Hartarto said on Thursday that the implementation of IoT, believed to increase efficiency in production, would start from the automotive and food and beverage sectors.

"We will hold an industrial summit on April 4 and there will be a showcase on IoT implementation in the industry, so the public can learn about how it will work," he said after a meeting at the Office of the Coordinating Economic Minister.

IoT is the interconnectivity among physical devices using the internet as the backbone. The term covers the use of smartphones to biometric implants.

In response to concerns over employment in Industry 4.0, Airlangga said the government had addressed the issue on the road map so the industry could generate more jobs despite the surging application of automation.

"The implementation of IoT will open new job opportunities. Factories will also expand, so don’t worry about shrinking employment," he said.
