Top Engineering Technology Trends to Watch Out for in 2020

Posted on August 15, 2019

The popularity of virtual reality, augmented reality, additive manufacturing, and artificial intelligence will continue to be rife in the next years. These apart, these following engineering trends will also continue to rule the roost in 2020 and even beyond –

  1. Rise in Automation and Robotics
    Owing to factory automation, some endless challenges and possibilities have raised their heads in the industrial environment. It’s undaunted anticipation that AI and the emerging technologies alike will eliminate a few jobs in the future. Artificial Intelligence will need some specific adroit that most engineers lack these days. Monumental changes in scale, force and speed will also be discernible in the years to come. Hence, preparedness will be crucial for experts to keep up with such changing scenarios.
  2. 5G Connectivity
    5G connectivity is expected to bring about a lot of evolutions along with it in the upcoming years. The 5G connectivity is expected to revolutionize everything, from machine-to-machine connectivity to city infrastructure and the ways we are living, working or communicating with others and machines.
  3. Internet of Things
    The IoT aka Internet of Things, which is also widely referred to the Internet of Everything (IoE) requires a very agile interaction between sensors for working properly. The industrial engineers should also watch the security of building applications like sensors, which will monitor the overall status of the assembly lines. This means that in the forthcoming years, every tech engineer will be bound to vouch for security alerts.
  4. Smart City Planning
    The concept of a smart city has gathered a lot of interests from everywhere. In the upcoming years, technical engineers should work on adorning a city with high-tech stuff like traffic sensors, surveillance cameras, smart lighting, smart parking, etc.
  5. AR, VR, and MR will be Popular
    The adoption of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) technologies in the sectors of manufacturing are bridging the gap between the real and the digital world. The automotive engineers are making experimentations in a more positive manner for boosting AR, MR, and several other applications hailing from R+ technology. This trend will earn the required thrust in 2020 and beyond.
  6. Cyber-security and Risk Management
    An important space that security engineers should watch out in 2020 is the growth of cyber-security search. They should find more effective ways to stay ahead of the curve before different loopholes emerge as serious issues. In 2020, cyber-security engineers should be more alert and carrying out more threat analysis at an early stage while developing products. They should ensure that safety and security are an integral aspect of every device and product.
