Combines with RFID

I 'd like to hear more about how this will combine with RFID and ethernet.  Once these get to be ubiquitous and connected to the internet we will have an Internet of things and Sensors.  With the advent of distributed AI, we can just call it skynet.

Another network protocol

The idea of putting an Ethernet connector on a sensor (RJ-45 was used in the article) as being to large, too inconvenient.  M-12 threaded connectors also provide Ethernet connectivity.  They have a different keying so that they cannot be mixed with regular M-12 connectors, the most common connector for sensors today.  Connector is not a reason to reject Ethernet.

IO-Link in combination with Ethernet in its various protocols sounds very promising though.  I'm looking forward to seeing IO-Link/Ethernet adapters gain much higher industrial visibility.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
