I & T as in Industrial and Transport in IoT – Where is the transformation taking us?

When IoT and M2M technologies are embedded into materials and mechanical parts, more data can be gathered from multiple sensors.  Implementing Big data analysis and high-speed communication to industrial development is revolutionizing the ability to evaluate performance and follow valuable metrics. This enables the companies to enhance their efficiency and drive a solid automation of processes as well as self-diagnosing of the failures.  Let us present to you the companies that are making Industrial revolution smart, based on their extensive industrial understanding:

The mining activities poise a challenge in predicting their yield or failure. Heap Leach Mining by Scanimetrics Inc. is an IoT solution to assess heap leach operations and predict yield and failure. It also includes wireless hardware and data analyses. Due to the nature of the industry, the solution is made to withstand extreme environmental conditions. The mining industry could use this solution to optimize their operations and get deeper insights into their scope of efficiency.

Every asset has its wear and tear, leading to failure. IDIAG Battery by INTESENS is a connected solution that limits the failure of the critical assets. Based on a cloud solution and connected sensor, it increases the assets’ availability and optimizes maintenance operations. This solution could be used to increase the life of an asset, and enjoy the benefits that follow.

Industries aim to achieve optimum utilization of resources and prevent wastage. Show water consumption and trigger events on alarms by G. BERNHARDT’s Söhne Ges.m.b.H. reads out values from water meter and transport them. Their solution also gives a timeline of water consumption. This helps to spot irregularities in water consumption.

With large facilities to manage, many companies find it hard to monitor their steam traps. SteamIQ, Advanced Steam Trap Monitoring by SteamIQ enables large facilities to easily monitor their steam trap population for failure. Coming with a 7-year long battery life, and ultra-long range, this solution is easy to install and helps industries to react to unexpected failures of steam traps and save costs.
