Welcome to Priority Payload Report: The Independent Newsletter of Industrial Automation. The focus of PPR is the revolution taking place in software, hardware, and connected systems in the industrial world. Known as the Industrial Internet of Things (Industrial IoT or IIoT) or Industry 4.0, it is transforming the way many organizations conduct operations.

As of March 1, 2018, Priority Payload Report will end paid subscriptions. Despite the relevance of the topic (IoT, AI, robotics, and other industrial automation technologies) the numbers around paid users and reader engagement were insufficient to support a paid newsletter. Paid subscribers will receive a pro-rated refund.

PPR will continue a free edition of the newsletter around links and short news items, and will also post articles on the prioritypayload.com website. Be sure to check out our Twitter feed (@prioritypayload) which has a high signal-to-noise ratio and avoids fluff and low-value links.
