Through predictive maintenance, companies can obtain a lot of useful information, including foreseeing the breakage of a component.
With this data, it is possible to intervene in advance and avoid emergency operations that often means downtime to the customer, also giving the products a huge competitive advantage.
Internet of Things
We can connect and make intelligent almost any type of product.
The latest technologies allow us to choose different types of connectivity according to needs. By integrating low-size, low power, and low-cost microcontrollers, we can make products belonging to different categories and sectors „smart“.
Through connectivity, it is possible to obtain important data about the consumers‘ usage of products for one particular product or the statistics of longer periods or various products.
Data can be analysed for reducing the costs of warranty replacement due to breakages or to improve the commercial offer based on how customers use the product itself.
Sometimes, a process in an automation system may be slowed down due to the lack of a specific machine automating or supporting a working phase.
Specifically for that purpose, we can insert completely custom machinery, designed due rather inexpensive hardware and evolution of the design systems.
The flexibility of our products and the use of standard communication systems allow integration with pre-existing automation systems, whether they are based on communication systems used by PLCs or new generation protocols.
Our systems can also be integrated into the company’s network, providing communication and data interchange interface with all the pre-existing software.
Strengthening the Infrastructure
Identifying, fully understanding and solving the critical energy problems means dramatically reduced costs for a company and great benefits for the environment.
Through artificial intelligence systems, it is possible to analyse in-depth the data related to energy consumption, comparing it with the production data (in case of the machinery) or with information related to the plants (e.g. heating/refrigeration systems).
Thanks to the high precision of sensors and cameras, it is possible to automate real-time control processes.
Up-to-date information of processes’ control assures high quality standards, reduced costs and improved working methods.
Through new generation low-cost RFIDs, sensors and GPS position detectors, it is possible to trace the products in real-time or to ensure the required environmental conditions of goods’ transporting.
Acquired data from the particular phase of the logistics process can be used for the control of goods, the activation of smart contracts between suppliers and customers, or to guarantee the safety and certainty of transport times.
Public institutions can improve the lives of their citizens with the help of new technologies.
For instance, a major cities’ problem – traffic jams – could be minimised by monitoring and controlling intelligent traffic lights capable of recognizing the number of cars in the queue and self-adjusting its working or signalling alternative routes in the event of roadblocks or heavy traffic.
Data acquired due to emerging technologies can be used to improve the quality of crops, the efficiency of breeding, and to digitise some mandatory, time-consuming actions.
It is possible to build custom machinery and accessories for having more assurance in growing any culture by adding sensors to fields or separate objects. For farmers, we suggest the geolocalisation of their animals to know exactly where they are and thus gain more control over the business.
