Wireless sensors can help discover maintenance issues with machines before they happen and give users access to real-time information. See four methods and four steps.
Northwestern Engineering researchers have developed two new algorithms that can infer the topology of a network by observing the behavior of the individual nodes (such as neurons) in real time, which could help improve swarm robotics, which use collaborative manipulation to work together.
As industry starts to engage in digital transformation programs, engineers tasked with managing this change are running into several challenges.
Two leading methods exist for establishing mobile human-machine interface (HMI) connectivity; one providing more cybersecurity. See table comparison of remote access HMI connections.
The Smart Factory Web Testbed aims to set up a marketplace for industrial production that comprises a web-based platform to allow factories to offer production capabilities and share resources to improve order fulfillment in a more flexible way than is currently possible with available technology.
thyssenkrupp Materials IoT GmbH (tkMIoT) has been created to connect machinery and digitalize processes for other companies.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and strategies help water and wastewater utilities advance energy efficiency goals. See applications: 7 IIoT benefits below.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a report to help organizations better understand and manage the cybersecurity and privacy risks associated with IoT devices throughout the devices’ lifecycles.
Rapid growth of data collection make rapid expansion of digital twins more likely to add automation, supply chain efficiencies and optimization.
The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) has developed a white paper designed to bolster best practices related to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and data security.
