What is the difference between Consumer IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT)?

|

Internet of Things (IoT) began as an emerging trend and has now become one of the key element ofDigital Transformationthat is driving the world in many respects. If your thermostat or refrigerator is connected to the Internet, then it is part of the consumer IoT.  If your factory equipment have sensors connected to internet, then it is part of Industrial IoT(IIoT). IoT has an impact on end consumers, while IIoT has an impact on industries like Manufacturing, Aviation, Utility, Agriculture, Oil & Gas, Transportation, Energy and Healthcare. IoT refers to the use of smart objects, which are everyday things from cars and home appliances to athletic shoes and light switches that can connect to the Internet, transmitting and receiving data and connecting the physical world to the digital wor...

Smart Sensors are “Tip of the Spear” for IIoT

|

Much has been written and blogged about by ARC Analyst (and guest bloggers) over the last few years regarding the tremendous operational and business value that IIoT-enabled solutions can bring about for companies across all industries, but especially in asset-intensive industries such as oil & gas – upstream, midstream and downstream. One important component vital for IIoT-enabled solutions to be most effective is accurate and reliable sensor measurements that provide the data that can be transformed into actionable information through advanced analytics and enhanced communications that comprise smart field systems. I believe that sensors, particularly smart sensors, are the proverbial “tip of the spear” that enables data to be transformed into effective actions through the power of I...

How old are robots?

  This article places the first robot in 1560. Any other instances of such ancient automation you know of? Read the article, anyway. It’s got quite a few interesting facts.  

Welding Gets Connected with Industrial IoT

|

Welding. You can’t get much more industrial than that, can you? Likely conjures up images of a blue collar, safety-clad worker earnestly joining pieces of metal together as heat flashes and sparks jump around. (Or if you have a penchant for 1980s’ movies, then maybe a picture of dance-loving Pittsburgh steel-mill welder Jennifer Beals in Flashdance comes to mind.) Welds may be all around us every time we go into a stadium, up a skyscraper, or on a rollercoaster, but most of us rarely give them a second thought or stop to consider how critical their integrity is to our safety. While we often read of the demise of traditional manual jobs, there is actually a shortage of skilled welders, especially in advanced economies. In the US, for example, the American Welding Society predicts a shortage...

IoT Geeks: Jan’2017 – 3D Printing Workshop highlights

|

In addition to Internet of Things (IoT) community, IoT Geeks Launched Chennai Makerspace community last October 2016. Our objective is to give an opportunity for everyone to make stuff – How to convert ideas into physical prototypes or products. We want to build a foundation for people to collaborate and build things. We scheduled our first workshop for first week of January 2017 but due to natural calamities and Jallikattu protest in tamilnadu, finally we moved workshop date to Jan 29 It was last Saturday (28-01-2017) Magesh, Sathiyaraj and volunteers team made a pre-work work for Sunday workshop. We bought and assembled 5 new 3D Printers for this workshop. We never saw any typical 3D Printing workshop with these many printers. Since we wanted to give a great experience to participa...

IoT Geeks – 2016 Year in Review

|

January 31, 2016 – We kicked-off 2016 with our first meetup at IITM Research Park. This meetup we’ve talked about #IoT and #3D Printing. Building Raspberry Pi powered tablet from the scratch – how to Convert ones idea into product. It was a great keynote session from Karan Nayan. I also talked about building a fablab for IoT Geeks and supporting makers movement through an active community of practice. As usual it was great meetup to kick-off the year. March 20, 2016 – It was the second meetup for 2016 year and I Invited  Karan Nayan to give a keynote on Things to know before building your hardware Startup This session was more valuable to participants. Everyone got an idea about building a hardware startup. Karan also did a live demo of Raspberry Pi controlled stran...
