8 – Industry 4.0 Internet of Things functionalities

Beyond Control Blockset® and WorkBench® provides Internet of Things functionalities. These can be used in a dual manner:

  1. WiFi interface as an Access Point: In this way the user can visualize data and send data to the WorkBench®, data exchanging, via an user interface on an Android or Ios based device.
  2. WiFi interface for data exchange with a Cloud Server: WorkBench® can be connected to an existing internet connection, in order to send data (logging) and receive commands (optionally) via MQTT protocol.

WiFi functionalities are used and configured via provided Simulink® blocks, its a single click solution where user doesn´t need to write any hand coding program.
