Industry is a leading application domain for the Internet of Things. The promise of the technology is expected to revolutionize manufacturing as we know it and influence application domains like transport, health, and energy with the models that are emerging. In this chapter, we present the evolution of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) through efforts in Europe and the USA, we review the related reference architectures, and we describe applications and challenges.
