Fujitsu to sell 'smart' factory systems in China

A monitoring system at a Shanghai Yidian group factory provides real-time information on operations.

TOKYO -- Japan's Fujitsu will partner with Chinese group Shanghai Yidian to sell factory management systems in China, where the government is promoting such technology as a way to cope with a shrinking labor force and improve manufacturing quality.

These systems fall into the realm of "internet of things" -- networks of machines, such as factory robots or appliances, that can collect and share data.
