Distributed Systems for Medical Ultrasound
Distributed Systems for Medical Ultrasound
As a large distributed system scales, the ability to simultaneously maintain or enhance performance and reliability creates its own set of unique challenges. How do you address the distributed future, ensure you learn from your past experiences and build on the investments customers have already made? The challenges are real, and in the process of overcoming them BK Medical is building healthcare systems that are more cost effective, and provide greater integration into the patient care systems to facilitate improved decision making for doctors.
Schneider Automation PLCs
Schneider Automation PLCs
Schneider Automation wanted a solution to its PLCs on the factory floor so that they can meet cost target for manufacturing systems. The challenges were that the solution needed to connect smaller PLCs and embedded devices that have limited storages or processing capacities.
Joy Mining Systems
Joy Mining Systems
Joy equipment faces many challenges. The first is machine integration and control. The business end of the machine has a rapidly-spinning cylinder with 6-inch diamond-studded cutting teeth. It chews through rock at rates measured in tens of tons per minute. The system grinds through the rock in front, creating a rectangular mine tunnel. Hydraulic lifters support the ceiling as the machine moves forward. Automated drills and screws drive 3-ft long screws into the ceiling to stabilize it. The rock and coal fall into a set of gathering "fingers" below the cutting cylinder. These fingers scoop up the rock and coal and deposit it onto a conveyor belt. The conveyor passes under the machine and out the back. A train of conveyor belt cars, up to a mile long, follows the cutter into the mine. The rock shoots along this train at over 400 feet per minute until it empties into rail cars at the end. Current systems place an operator cage next to the cutter. Choking dust (potentially explosive), the risk of collapse and the proximity of metal and rock mayhem make the operator cage a hazardous location.

IIC x IoT ONE Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast EP035: Are communication standards really important? — An Interview with Stan Schneider of RTI
Wednesday, Jul 04, 2018

*This episode of the Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast is sponsored by the Industrial Internet Consortium

What are the only five questions you should ask to determine which communication standard to use? How should we handle the challenge of defining standards? What does the vastness and confusion of the IoT market mean for technology solution providers? 

Stan explains to us how the IIC is helping to define standards in communications by clarifying vocabulary. He also explains to us the origin of the IoT hype and how both industrial and technology companies should do to succeed in this market.

I.D. Systems
I.D. Systems
In the Digital Age, data is the backbone of the enterprise. Getting the metrics you need to optimize your asset management system is the first step. But to truly drive meaningful improvement, you need to go beyond collecting the numbers. You need analysis that gives you insight into your operations and identifies opportunities for improvement.What are we about? Connections. We connect you to your assets, your employees, and your customers. We connect your business operations to your big data. We connect your fleet to the Internet of Things. And most importantly, we stay connected with our customers, our roots, and our core values.I.D. Systems was founded by two Stanford University engineering classmates in 1993 to explore how radio frequency identification (RFID) technology could be used to manage data from vehicular fleets. In 1995, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) saw the value in collecting and analyzing metrics gathered from testing scenarios, then using that information to optimize delivery operations. They awarded I.D. Systems a $6.6 million contract to develop and implement a custom tracking system, and we were off and running. By 1997, we found ourselves filling a market need that most fleet operators didn’t know they had. And by 1999, our technology had proven so successful that we took the company public.Compared to today, the amount of data we were able to collect in the 90s was pretty small. As wireless technology exploded, we dedicated our resources and our expertise to research and development. Our customers needed deep insights, and we were committed to providing them. That commitment hasn’t wavered since.Over twenty years later, our solutions have grown more sophisticated as we firmly settle into the Digital Age. Today, there’s no lack of data. The Internet of Things has connected the world, and it produces massive amounts of information that can be unmanageable. The challenge is harnessing that data, finding what’s important, and using detailed analysis to drive continual improvements in operations and profit.
