Abstract

Over centuries, manufacturing has undergone a remarkable transformation, progressing from handcrafted items to the period of steam and water-powered devices, then advancing through mass production and electronic automation. Now, it stands on the threshold of Industry 4.0, where manufacturing systems transcend mere connectivity to communicate, analyse data, and act intelligently. This paradigm shift integrates various technologies including Internet of Things, analytics, robots, advanced materials, additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality. This study explores the technological advancements that fueled the industrial revolution’s expansion as well as its historical history. The research looks at how the anticipated characteristics of 5G technologies would affect upcoming sectors and bring in the era of Industry 4.0. The Factories of the Future are greatly aided by 5G, which provides a unified communication platform necessary to upend established business models and get beyond the constraints of
current communication technology.
