Abstract

The aim of the paper is to review the trends on low-cost open-source Internet of Thing (IoT) in the Framework of Industry 4.0. We hypothesize that open source IoTs benefits small and medium sized (SME) manufacturing companies to help them tackle economical and technical barriers for technology adoption at factory floors. This research reviews the state of the art of open-source hardware and software and identifies the challenges of open-source IoT by compiling scientific literature and relevant online resources. The methodology is twofold: (i) we use a grey literature review including online information, and (ii) we complement the analysis by a structured keyword search using IEEE scientific repository. The study finds that open source is and will be an essential part of developing Industry 4.0 solutions and its integral constituent, Industrial Internet of Things systems (IIoT). However, there are challenges to overcome, such as interoperability and reliability.
