This would provide significant real-time quality, time, resource, and cost advantages in comparison with the traditional production systems. Sensing components such as actuators and sensors within the industrial set-up are expected to become "smart" as they are, increasingly, becoming self-sufficient with integrated computing abilities and low power consumption.
