As the world leader in next-generation mobile technologies, Qualcomm ideas and inventions are driving wireless growth and helping to connect people to information, entertainment and one another. Qualcomm’s breakthrough technologies enable the convergence of mobile communications and consumer electronics, making wireless devices and services more personal, affordable and accessible to people everywhere.
With IoT, virtually any object, person or even animal can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network. For instance, a patient with an implanted heart monitor, a farm animal with a biochip transponder and an automobile with built-in sensors are all achievable thanks to IoT. Eaton's Electrical Sector and Hydraulics Group engineers are actively looking at integrating the IoT across a growing number of products. By capturing data that exists within components and systems and making it available, these products will be able to provide actionable knowledge to improve performance.
From monitoring the energy efficiency of our homes to finding more productive ways to feed the global population, harnessing these connected “things” and turning massive amounts of raw data into actionable insights will have a transformative impact on society. However, both technical and business challenges are slowing IoT adoption. Decision makers within companies are trying to gain a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, Interoperability
, management, and the need to tailor to specific verticals.
Intel is addressing these challenges by offering open and scalable products, fostering a thriving ecosystem, and showing what is possible with pilots and use cases that demonstrate the potential value and ease of deployment. Intel offers a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end hardware and software with built-in security.
To make IoT simpler to deploy and scale across applications quickly, Intel offer the Intel IoT Platform, a design blueprint that details how to securely connect and manage a fleet of “things” from small sensors to huge server farms that make up the cloud, while using various analytics tools and technologies along the way.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet—essentially a "Connected Everything Platform." These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. When objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them.
IoT is connecting new places—such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems—to the Internet. When an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere. This connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to: increase efficiency, innovate in product development, increase asset utilization, enhance the customer experience, streamline the supply chain, and improve safety and security.
Hitachi Consulting helps apply IoT solutions to drive business value, ultimately allowing companies to be IoT innovators and become an "Enterprise of Things." Companies can learn more about Hitachi Consulting's products, solutions and expertise and how they leverage the diverse product portfolio of Hitachi to help enterprises quickly get value out of IoT capabilities.
The recent Internet of Things
(IoT) momentum has been enabled through a broad adherence to open standards (such as Ethernet) and by technology breakthroughs in the area of Data Aggregation
middleware. Schneider Electric delivers open, connected solutions at each IoT-driven intelligent ecosystem layer: the connected, decentralised device layer (sensors, drives, meters, PLCs, controls, switchgear), the platform layer (cloud services, middleware, physical infrastructure architectures), and the On-Premise
central control layer (operational intelligence, remote monitoring, predictive analysis, simulation, cloud analytics).
Schneider Electric tools help data centre, plant, and smart grid operators to become more efficient by sorting through mountains of data (eliminating false alarms or nuisance alarms) and by generating dashboards that consolidate the information coming in from all parts of the extended network. Instead of gridlock, a smooth flow of information is created which allows for greater operational intelligence and higher quality decisions.
IoT is broadening the scope of where both power protection and security are needed, as entire chains of communication can be disrupted by the breakdown of a single device. Schneider Electric leverages the power of IoT and big data to maximize safety and reliability through high-precision automation and control, training and simulation, the generation of ‘what if’ scenarios, robust remote management, Predictive Maintenance
, managed services, and advanced analytics. Power protection and cyber security considerations are imbedded into our product designs in order to strengthen overall network reliability.
Industrial plants are operated, monitored, and controlled by means of process management systems. PMSX pro has been designed to fully meet all requirements in terms of availability, efficiency, expandability, and flexibility. It also features a high level of harmonized hardware and software, and includes a finely tuned range of standardized automation equipment.
From our SmartMirror and DoorShow to our digital service offerings like RemoteMonitoring and ActionBoard, the possibilities are almost limitless with connected elevators, escalators, and moving walks.
Digital Media Services
Turning your units into communication platforms
IoT makes it possible to monetize mobility spaces in completely new ways. Our digital media services make it possible to turn elevators into powerful communication platforms. They provide new information, communication, and entertainment channels for your passengers, tenants and customers. With one back-end solution to manage all channels.
The smart monitoring of elevators and escalators
Digital services complement maintenance service contracts, adapting to your specific needs and requirements. The range of services starts with connectivity and ends with the management of your installations from elevators to escalators.
Qualcomm® IoT technologies and solutions utilize the real-world Connected Intelligent Edge to offer end-to-end, ready-to-deploy solutions so customers can digitally transform their businesses to optimize their operations, monetize massive amounts of data, innovate in new ways, and drive cost savings.
Also, Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensors deliver a better user experience by using technological advances and acoustics (ultrasonic waves) to scan 3D features such as ridges, valleys, as well as pores of a user’s finger for a deeply accurate image. This allows the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor to scan fingerprints through solid surfaces like glass and metal even while wet.
