Photon + General Motors Company

Here where I live there is a General Motor Company and there are a group of university teachers want to implement Internet of Things projects over the Industry, example: “Monitor production over the cloud” “Turn something on”

1.- Is there any way to protect a photon inside of a manufacturing industry? maybe of electromagnetism interference.

2.- Any recommendations for a particle photon working in a HIGH LEVEL INDUSTRY? or forgetting the photon and start working with wireless PLC´s or well known specific devices for industry

Thank you for your help!!!

There are certainly business cases in industry: here with the example of T-Systems. Whether Particle is used, eludes my knowledge.
