Creating Business Value by Enabling the Internet of Things

Radio frequency identification and RF sensors are one way in which companies can link things—assets, products, inventories and environments—to the internet. Learn how RFID technologies are being added to products to enhance their functionality by connecting them to the internet, and how RFID and sensors are being employed to make environments smarter and more responsive. In addition, hear what strategies leading-edge companies are employing to take advantage of the emerging Internet of Things.

Machine Learning Within the IoT: Leveraging BLE Sensors to Monitor the Performance and Health of Equipment

Manufacturing organizations have begun utilizing a wireless system that employs RFID and other technology to capture sensor data from high valued equipment, and to identify problems as soon as a change in performance. During this session, learn how HID’s revolutionary Condition Monitoring Service, enabled by Bluvision, leverages BLE sensors and a cloud-based platform that is transforming the condition monitoring ecosystem. Manufacturing facilities can now include smaller motors, belts and bearings, which in some environments have gone unmonitored. Real-time insights into critical variables (such as vibration and temperature) paired with advanced cloud analytics significantly reduces unplanned facility downtime, increases production line productivity and saves valuable man hours to drive maintenance and operational processes.

IoT Made Real with Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI) from Boeing’s Tapestry Solutions

The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to revolutionize manufacturing and global supply chains, promising to make factories smarter, more agile and profitable. But the truth is, organizations must overcome major interoperability challenges to realize its full potential. The IoT works by seamlessly connecting machines, devices and sensors over an intelligent network. However, many IoT sensor solutions are not designed for interoperability with other brands, data formats or legacy systems. In this presentation, you’ll hear how Tapestry Solutions addressed these challenges at Boeing and BAE Systems with Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI). Tapestry’s ESI is a sensor-agnostic IoT platform that seamlessly integrates myriad sensor technologies that track, monitor and control assets and workflow processes. At BAE Systems, Tapestry deployed an ESI-enabled RFID solution that enables the company to track over 200,000 assets, 30,000 parts and an estimated 6,500 work orders at its plants. At Boeing, ESI seamlessly connects more than 100 sensor technologies at 50 Boeing factories, and can handle over 6 billion tag reads per week.

Texmark Chemicals Launches Refinery of the Future With IoT

Petrochemical company Texmark Chemicals, the largest North American producer of dicyclopentadiene (DCPD)—a chemical used in resins, inks, adhesives and paints—has completed the first phase of a deployment to create what it calls a “Refinery of the Future.” The solution starts with Internet of Things (IoT) technology to track wireless sensor data on two of its most critical pumps. The deployment is one part of a holistic plan to manage safety and efficiency using cameras, Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies, all on a single platform. Learn how the firm is using the technology to collect real-time data regarding the function of critical pumps on the plant floor, with the long-term goal of managing assets, employee safety and access, via video and other wireless technologies.
