MIT researchers have developed a system that enables smartphones to transmit “chirps” to nearby devices could notify people if they have been near an infected person.
The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing companies to adjust their business practices and settle to a new normal. See four tips on how edge computing and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can help companies adjust.
Advanced edge controllers enable remote monitoring techniques to supplement standard industrial automation practices
The use of intrinsically safe smart devices can help improve productivity and the safety of employees while providing data efficiently.
Water and wastewater operations improved with an industrial radio with messaging queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) for faster communication and new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software. A system integrator used the wireless system to help improve reliability and reporting and reduce risk.
Stanford researchers have found that a few layers of atomically thin materials can provide the same insulation as a sheet of glass, which is 100 times thicker and will improve the compactness of cell phones and computers.
Tulip, an MIT spinout company, has developed a customizable manufacturing app platform that connects people, machines and sensors to optimize processes on a shop floor.
Mobile devices like Raspberry Pi are an inexpensive alternative for controllers in the manufacturing space and can be useful for particular input/output (I/O) applications.
Mobile technologies are challenging traditional data handling practices as they move into the industrial arena.
Using mobile devices on the plant floor offers many potential benefits, but the right approach is a must because of safety and cybersecurity concerns.
