We have all seen a huge leap in the industrial sector due to the advent of industrial 4.0. industrial 4.0 helped in creating a smart factory/ industry by combining technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), Augmented reality, etc. This helped in creating highly automated processes and machines and greatly reduced complexity in industrial aspects like designing, manufacturing, production, and customer support. So, after this, we are now moving towards a new era of industry 5.0.
Industry 5.0 takes another leap in an industrial area. It is the revolution in which man and machine work together to improve the efficiency in production. Industry 5.0 uses technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, location tagging, virtual reality, big data and incorporates these technologies with greater human intelligence. When industry 4.0 arrived there was a fear that the robots and machines will be replaced by humans. Industry 5.0 seeks to gather more balanced working relations with humans and machines. So unlike machines replacing humans in industry 4.0, industry 5.0 will have collaborative robots that will be integrated into industrial processes for more repetitive and mundane tasks, providing humans with greater opportunities to use their creative flair.
Numerous technologies and applications are promised to assist 5.0 ranging from healthcare, food industry, aerospace etc.
