Harness Wireless IoT Sensors for Integrated Building Management

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-36153
Published 2020-03-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The Internet of Things (IoT) is proving its impact on the real estate sector. According to forecasts, building automation will lead the growth rate of connected devices in 2020. Smart building endpoints are expected to grow by 42 percent next year, reaching the staggering number of 440 million. Facility managers, real estate owners, as well as commercial and industrial businesses are looking to deploy IoT for its multifold benefits — from augmenting building efficiency and lowering costs, to improving tenants’ experience. These exciting opportunities come from granular insights into disparate aspects of building operations — all accessible from a centralized management platform.

Industry 4.0 — the term that originated in Germany to describe the fourth industrial revolution of cyber-physical systems — is being closely connected today with 5G, which is often referred to as the fifth-generation mobile network. This connection allows manufacturers to further improve factory automation, human/machine interfaces, and mobility in their processes.

Modern Software Links Legacy Systems

Most of today's devices, equipment, and systems come with “intelligent” or “smart” capability built in, along with wired or wireless network connectivity. This is great for new work but many end users have decades worth of legacy systems in place and would like to obtain information from these functional areas without extensive retrofitting.

DEVELOPMENT OF PRODUCT-SERVICE SYSTEM BUSINESS MODEL: a study at Mercedes-Benz Brazil

Centro Universitario da FEI-Renato Ferreira Junior, Dra. Gabriela Scur
  • Technical Paper
  • 2019-36-0093
Published 2020-01-13 by SAE International in United States
With the increase in the use of information technology and communication, Internet of Things, Big Data, in addition to the concepts of sustainability, a new strategy has been structured, which aims to add value to the traditional PSS model, in the integration of new services to products. The challenge is how to change the current business model of a fully product-oriented (PO) company into a supplier of products with integrated services, in a new business model. From the theoretical propositions and best practices of companies that have implemented PSS businesses models, this paper propose and validate a systematization of strategic actions that make possible for product-oriented companies to change to a new PSS business model, and can be used as a guideline to the PSS implementation, as it compiles the key aspects needed for each strategic area, the important actions found in the literature and bibliographic references that may help in further research. In terms of theoretical relevance, this paper expands the PSS model, using the Big Data to generate new business. Managerial contribution was…

Enabling Autonomous Decision-Making in Manufacturing Systems through Preference Fusion

SAE International Journal of Materials and Manufacturing

Oakland University, USA-Slon Christopher, Pandey Vijitashwa
  • Journal Article
  • 05-13-02-0008
Published 2020-01-09 by SAE International in United States
Decision analysis (DA), a well-established discipline in business and engineering, is entering another domain of application due to the advent of Industry 4.0. DA enables optimal decisions by finding system parameters that maximize the utility, or in the presence of uncertainty the expected utility, from the attributes of a system. Whether there is a single decision maker or all decision makers have uniform preferences, determining risk behavior and the resulting utility is well developed in the existing literature. However, variability in preferences has not been satisfactorily addressed. This gap gains added significance in the face of the demands of Industry 4.0 where cyberphysical production systems must drive autonomous decision-making on the factory floor. The decisions must accommodate a distribution of customer and designer preferences, including production auditors within the organization. This article provides a novel framework and develops a closed-form approximation for expected utility in the presence of uncertainty in both attributes and preference behaviors. The value of this approach is demonstrated in the assembly of parts in a cyberphysical production system of an automotive…

Photovoltaic-Powered Sensors

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35714
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Internet of Things devices require batteries that must be replaced frequently, which can be problematic for long-term monitoring. Photovoltaic-powered sensors were developed that could potentially transmit data for years before they need to be replaced. Thin-film perovskite cells — known for their potential low cost, flexibility, and relative ease of fabrication — were mounted as energy-harvesters on inexpensive radio frequency identification (RFID) tags.

The Role of Sensors in the Evolution of Robotics

  • TBMG-35609
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

At one time, robotics was considered more science fiction than reality. That's changing. Today, robots are increasingly playing a role in our everyday lives. They're zooming around our homes to pick up dust, helping surgeons perform operations with even more precision, sniffing out suspicious packages for law enforcement, and on the factory floor, they're performing all kinds of tasks for automotive, electronics, and industrial manufacturing companies.

As we transition towards Internet of Things (IoT) - humans are connected to each other & outside world through the smartphone.Customers tend to use smartphones for varied purposes ranging from communication to entertainment. However, the concern of distraction exists due to poor visibility & accessibility of the phone’s screen in driving condition.One of the repercussion of being connected to smartphone particularly in driving condition includes higher number of road accidents due to distraction. This paper explains one of the key initiatives taken by Maruti Suzuki India Limited to address the same. This is done by offering an entry level connected infotainment system which comprises of the following three components:(a) An entry-level infotainment with basic display & vehicle connectivity, (b) A Dock mounted on infotainment panel enabling safe usage of smartphone due to its position i.e. accessibly and visibility in driving condition, (c) A Driving App specifically designed for driving usage where one can access calling, messaging, navigation on the go with a vibrant UI & easy to use gestures.The infotainment unit is connected to vehicle’s…

Shared Mobility is changing mobility trends of Automotive Industry and its one of the Disruptions. The current vehicle customer usage and life of components are designed majorly for personal vehicle and with factors that comprehend usage of shared vehicles. The usage pattern for customer differ between personal vehicle, shared vehicle & Taxi. In the era of Autonomous and Shared mobility systems, the customer usage and expectation of vehicle condition on each & every ride of vehicle will be a vehicle in good condition on each ride. The vehicle needs systems that will guide or fix the issues on its own, to improve customer satisfaction. We also need a transformation in customer behavior pattern to use shared mobility vehicle as their personal vehicle to improve the life of vehicle hardwares & reduce warranty cost. We will be focusing on Vehicle Closure hardware & mechanisms as that will be the first and major interaction point for customers in vehicle. This gives us an opportunity to improve product life and customer experience in ride share and shared mobility…
