If Your Packages Could Talk! The What, How, and Why to Creating Intelligent Operations with Edge IoT
If the boxes or pallets on your conveyor system could talk, what would they say? When thinking about all the things involved in connected operations, it may seem daunting—machines, sensors, back-end IT, clouds… oh my! Edge IoT is about making it all simple by allowing things to communicate at the source of the data, making the boxes themselves intelligent so that they get where they need to be, when they need to be there, to whomever is supposed to receive it.
Through a real warehouse logistics story, we'll cover the following:
- Edge IoT—the convergence of Edge Computing and IoT-basics and tips
- Machine data extraction and integrated machine vision
- Simple real-time data sharing between machine to machine, machine to human, machine to cloud
- Use cases: optimizing manufacturing ops, increasing product quality, decreasing machine downtime, root/cause analysis
