Industry 5.0: Industrial Revolution With a Soul
In short, the concept of Industry 5.0 is mostly focused on the integration of humans working alongside robots and IoT devices in the automated industrial environments of the future. As opposed to Industry 4.0 that was mostly about leveraging robots and smart machines for maximum efficiency and high performance in manufacturing, Industry 5.0 is centered around the human impact and how latest technologies, such as IoT and Big Data, can be leveraged to empower human work and capabilities.
The concept of biological transformation as addition to digital transformation is another part of Industry 5.0 paradigm. This is why all kinds of smart materials and bio-inspired technologies are also considered to be a crucial property for Industry 5.0 solutions.
