What to Expect Post Lockdown Era in Factories; Are Smart Accessories to Save the Day?

Workplace safety is a tricky concept, and demands much more than automation and robotic integration to ensure superlative results.
Though the aforementioned technological excellence play exemplary role in operational efficiency to speed up workflow, improve productivity as well as restrict expenditure, workplace safety however still remains a major concern across factories and businesses.
With robotic integration, certain workplace accidents that may trigger during lifting and upper arm motion may be effectively averted, but other risks still persist, also resulting in massive loss of resources. Ergonomic planning and deployment of robotics are crucial in keeping accidents at bay.
Of-late several factory set-up are encouraging adoption of wearable devices such as surface electromyogram to monitor muscle performance and fatigue, besides also keeping a tap on mobility, speed, posture and the like, to arrive at logical conclusions.
Several expert analysis predict the onset of smart technology and smart accessories across businesses and factories to adequately combat the challenges posed by the global pandemic.
Owing to prolonged halt in factories to align with mandatory physical distancing parameters, productivity has been severely affected globally.
To reverse these implications, factories are fast banking upon advanced technologies such as wearable gadgets in the form of smart glasses and smartwatches are likely to emerge as absolutely mandatory equipment to pursue effortless business.
Factories are likely to be the pioneering adopters of several smart accessories to revive businesses. Monitoring real time data of factory accessories and machines is critical for business applications. Therefore, to constantly facilitate real-time data monitoring, factories are actively clinging to smart devices to remain industry specific.
Onset of Industry 4.0 revolution is likely to lead workflow across factories, transforming thus into smart factory operations. Despite the harsh business blow, COVID-19 however has accelerated the much needed transformation in factory operations with reliance on smart technology.
