Quite simply, it is the replacement of human beings with machinery, with the help of computers and technology.
This machine-to-machine communication encapsulates the phenomenon that is the Internet of Things, with it being rooted in cloud computing and networks of data-gathering sensors.
Why take this step?
Initially, the main purpose for industrial automation lay with the intent to increase productivity, what with them being able to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This would then negate the need for human operators and the cost that comes along with them i.e wages and benefits. Today though, that focus has shifted, or rather evolved, to increasing quality and flexibility in the manufacturing process.
Why take this step with us?
From simple vaporisers to bluetooth controlled drones, our logical Mobile Controlled Automations are capable of taking the mobile segment by storm. We have had substantial experience integrating and controlling new hardware and machinery using mobile devices. To date we have dealt with platforms like:
- CCTV cameras
- Weighing Bridges
- Health & Fitness Equipments
- Fitness Bands
- Wristwatches and accompanying Gears
There are three key elements at play here: intelligent machines, advanced analytics and people at work. These elements make up the crux of an industrial internet data loop that consistently feeds and improves itself with secure cloud-based networking as the nucleus. To overcome the complexity of the data loop, some of the decisions are transferred to the digital system.
With our help, mobiles used in business or home environments could behave like controllers for machinery and appliances using communication protocols like NFC, WiFi and Bluetooth.
