Consider for a moment what it takes to deliver critical supplies, such as food and medicine, to a remote village in a country divided by civil unrest. It’s not as simple as flying from A to B. There’s high potential for surprise―everything from an encounter with hostile combatants to a sudden change in approach can occur. Unexpected variables abound, and decisions must be made and executed in real time, without fear or hesitation, to ensure success. In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), the greatest variable in a mission - the human element - can be supported by the same level of rational, high-level decision making. A platform is developed so that it can observe, orient, decide and act on multiple issues simultaneously. UTRC’s autonomy platform is capable of doing just that, allowing for the development of vertical take-off aircraft that thinks on their own. The platform employs advanced sensing technologies, algorithms and human-machine interaction systems to make hundreds of necessary real-time decisions and successfully traverse every obstacle encountered. This platform is not limited to aerospace alone, as it has the potential to address challenges in a variety of civilian and military markets, including building security and robotics for situation evaluation and disaster zone repair.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the futuristic vision of everyday objects having network connectivity—and it's already happening: our phone communicates with our watch and our refrigerator, our car communicates with our address book. Emerson's Pervasive Sensing solutions are our industry's Internet of Things, and only Emerson has the wireless expertise and capabilities to make it happen: both the cutting-edge technology and the process domain expertise critical to analyzing data and recommending actions. The expanded view offered by a Pervasive Sensing strategy enables companies to gain actionable insights into areas previously unreachable or manually managed. A Pervasive Sensing strategy enables manufacturers to address these key areas with more and better data, strategic analyses and actionable information. When companies expand their strategy with more sensors, they easily take control of their plant and experience a considerable business impact.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread. In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is fueling innovation in products, services and solutions that improve building operations and performance. For decades, Johnson Controls has been providing the equipment and systems that communicate in real-time to deliver optimized environments. With a portfolio ranging from sensors, equipment and systems through cloud-based data collection and fault detection, they offer an advanced and robust product line. Johnson Controls smart equipment leverages embedded controls and secured connectivity to reduce the risk of downtime and improve the serviceability while optimizing efficiency and reducing energy costs.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly taking shape. Billions of smart devices, from cars and trucks to containers and hospital beds, will create and share data. Data permission security becomes a major concern for enterprises. The BlackBerry IoT Platform can provide the clients that control, providing a cloud-based solution that lets clients build and manage IoT applications and devices in a secure, efficient, and scalable way. The BlackBerry IoT Platform provides a modular architecture to rapidly add BlackBerry and third-party services into your IoT applications and, once built, a backbone for these apps and devices to communicate privately.
Information Systems and Technology develops, improves and secures the systems of sophisticated defense, aerospace and communications products. They have an established global presence in large-scale IT networks and systems, secure communications systems, command and control systems, imagery sensors and cyber products.
The Internet of Things (IoT) technology is enabling new levels of information visibility about the manufacturing and commercial building environments. As an example, many companies are looking to analyze energy consumption information remotely to pinpoint abnormal energy usage. This is typically a trigger that service is needed or further analysis needs to be performed. With a strong technology and engineering background, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is enabling IoT technologies into heavy vehicle industry, aerospace engineering, energy and shipping equipment.
