Mowic’s TrackIce Freeze Out Ice Problems On The Road Using RF Technology
Mowic saw an opportunity to reduce the operating costs of spreading salt on roads. Not knowing what terrain you’ll face affects traffic patterns, wears down brake systems, and most importantly is very dangerous. In addition to added time and danger on the roads, it’s no small cost to municipalities to run trucks for salt distribution.

IoT Systems & InControl Engineering: Integrating Smart Sensors & Industrial IoT
In 2016, Kevin Stoddard, a managing partner, had a problem. InControl’s customers required sensors on several equipment distributed across multiple sites and locations. To accomplish this, InControl needed a cost-effective solution fast. They also needed this solution to be intuitive for the equipment owners, highly secure, and broadly capable of delivering custom analytics to clients around the world.

IO-Link
IO-Link
IO-Link is the first standardised IO technology worldwide (IEC 61131-9) for the communication with sensors and also actuators. The powerful point-to-point communication is based on the long established 3-wire sensor and actuator connection without additional requirements regarding the cable material. So, IO-Link is no fieldbus but the further development of the existing, tried-and-tested connection technology for sensors and actuators.

Bluetooth SIG
Bluetooth SIG
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) is the body that oversees the development of Bluetooth standards and the licensing of the Bluetooth technologies and trademarks to manufacturers.Created in 1994, Bluetooth® technology was conceived as a wireless alternative to data cables by exchanging data using radio transmissions. The name Bluetooth came from a tenth century Danish King, Harald Blåtand or, in English, Harold Bluetooth. As the story goes, King Blåtand helped unite warring factions in parts of what are now Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Similarly, Bluetooth technology was created as an open standard to allow connectivity and collaboration between disparate products and industries.One of the most popular applications for Bluetooth historically has been wireless audio—headsets and hands-free connectivity in cars to wireless speakers and headphones that stream music from your phone or tablet. This uses a version of Bluetooth called BR/EDR (bit rate/enhanced data rate) that is optimized for sending a steady stream of high quality data (i.e. music) in a power efficient way.With the advent of Bluetooth with its low energy functionality (Bluetooth Smart or BLE), developers are now able to create small sensors that run off tiny coin-cell batteries for months, and in some cases, years. Many of these Bluetooth sensors use so little energy that developers are starting to find ways to use scavenged energy, like solar and kinetic, to power them—a potentially unlimited life from a power perspective. This allows you to find Bluetooth technology in billions of devices today, everything from phones to headsets to basketballs and socks—the use cases are limited only by a developer’s imagination.

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) enables engineers to improve the safety and maintainability of critical structures. SHM combines multiple sensing technologies with an embedded measurement controller to capture, log, and analyze real-time data. CHALLENGES / REQUIREMENTS - A system is required to monitor the real-time structural parameters and analyze the health of the structureSTAKEHOLDERS - Users and owners of the structureKEY OBJECTIVES - To detect and repair problems in a structure before it collapses- Human safety- To detect and repair problems in a structure before it collapsesTYPICAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES - To detect the structural hazards in a specific structure and adjust repair schedule accordinglyUSAGE VIEWPOINT - Sensors located on the structure send real-time data to the analytical software tools- According to the inputs from sensors, health and life of the structures is decided- If any hazard found, repair schedule is planned accordinglyFUNCTIONAL VIEWPOINT - Sensors: Civil structure health sensor nodes- Network: Wide Area Network (WAN)- Standards: - Augmented Intelligence: Descriptive analysis- Augmented Behavior: Machine-to-machine (M2M) interfacesStructural Health Monitoring (SHM) is the process of implementing a damage detection and characterization strategy for engineering structures in order to maintain the system’s performance. The SHM process involves the observation of a system over time using periodically sampled response measurements from an array of sensors, extracting damage-sensitive features from these measurements, and performing statistical analysis of these features to determine the current state of system health. Over the long term data analysis increases visibility into the ability of the structure to perform its intended function. After extreme events, such as earthquakes or blast loading, SHM is used for rapid condition screening and aims to provide reliable, real time information regarding the integrity of the structure. SHM can be applied to fixed infrastructure, such as building and bridges, or mobile infrastructure, such as airplanes and trains. Health Assessment of Engineered Structures of Bridges, Buildings and other related infrastructures:Commonly known as Structural Health Assessment (SHA) or SHM, this concept is widely applied to various forms of infrastructures, especially as countries all over the world enter into an even greater period of construction of various infrastructures ranging from bridges to skyscrapers. Especially so when damages to structures are concerned, it is important to note that there are stages of increasing difficulty that require the knowledge of previous stages, namely:1) Detecting the existence of the damage on the structure2) Locating the damage3) Identifying the types of damage4) Quantifying the severity of the damageIt is necessary to employ signal processing and statistical classification to convert sensor data on the infrastructural health status into damage info for assessment.SHM Components:SHM System's elements include:- Structure- Sensors- Data acquisition systems- Data transfer and storage mechanism- Data managementData interpretation and diagnosis:1) System Identification2) Structural model update3) Structural condition assessment4) Prediction of remaining service lifeAn example of this technology is embedding sensors in structures like bridges and aircraft. These sensors provide real time monitoring of various structural changes like stress and strain. In the case of civil engineering structures, the data provided by the sensors is usually transmitted to a remote data acquisition centres. With the aid of modern technology, real time control of structures (Active Structural Control) based on the information of sensors is possibleKey vendors: Campbell Scientific, National Instruments, SENSeOR, SmartPatch
Gas Detection Predictive Maintenance
Gas Detection Predictive Maintenance
Operators use gas detection devices to monitor and prevent gas leaks.Detection of gas levels and leakages in industrial environments, surroundings of chemical factories and inside mines involves significant costs, and is of crucial importance for operating safety. While preventive maintenance could provide for another IIoT solution, at remote sites it is costly and sometimes ineffective.
Industrial Wearables
Industrial Wearables
Wearable products comprise smart devices equipped with microchips, sensors, and wireless communication capabilities. These devices collect data, track activities, and provide customized experiences to user’s needs and desires. The adoption of wearables in the workplace will occur both in corporate enterprise environments and in industrial settings such as warehouses, manufacturing shop floors, and field maintenance sites.The growing popularity of mobile networks has been one of the most important factors in the development of wearable technology. Bluetooth headsets, smartwatches, and web-enabled glasses allow people to access data hands-free from Wi-Fi networks.An entire industry devoted to the development of applications that can work with wearable technologies has recently developed, with services being sold or given for free to individuals willing to download applications. These applications cover a broad spectrum: from those focused on health and exercise to sports and maps.
