Challenges such as interconnection, information transparency, technical assistance, and decentralised decisions need the engagement of the universities responding at global and local levels.
Engaged universities with the development their nations and, at the same time, with the global challenges, means to initiate how people adoption to the ability of advance technology to connect and communicate with each other via the Internet of Things (IoT) or the Internet of People (IoP); to collect immense amounts of data and information from all points in the manufacturing process, thus aiding functionality and identifying key areas that can benefit from innovation and improvement; to visualising information comprehensively for making informed decisions and solving urgent problems on short notice; and to make decisions on their own and to perform their tasks as autonomously as possible.
