Opto 22's leader in product strategy, Benson Hougland, is back in the OptoDemo Studio to discuss new Industry 4.0 tools and what it means for engineers in the industrial automation space and beyond.

As a guest on The Manufacturing Hub Podcast, Benson is part of an hour-long conversation with hosts Vlad Romanov and Dave Griffith.
