The Industrial Internet incorporates ideas of intelligent machines, or specific pieces of equipment, with embedded technology and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Examples are pieces of machinery or vehicles that are equipped with intelligent technologies, including machine to machine (M2M) technologies that allow manufacturing equipment or other types of equipment to send data back and forth, or "talk among themselves."
