Many factors make Internet of Things (IoT) applications solve problems across industries. These factors help fuel the proliferation and adoption of IoT solutions worldwide. Technological advancement in low-cost, low-energy wireless hardware is one, and machine learning, cloud computing, resource management goals, remote automation needs, and smart technology investments are among the other factors.
Every industry can benefit from IoT applications for smart cities, agriculture, factories, hospitals, and many more. Read on to find out what Ramya Mohanakrishnan, IT specialist and technology content writer, says are the well-established IoT applications poised to disrupt industries.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of devices that feeds data into a platform to enable communication and automated control. IoT connects machines to other machines as well as people. It primarily connects the physical to the digital.
This seamless connection between machines, humans, and data means that IoT simplifies, improves, and automates processes. Sensors, coupled with connectivity and artificial intelligence, have the potential to make several systems more efficient. It cuts costs in areas that were historically not possible. According to the March 2022 update of IoT Analytics’ Global IoT Enterprise Spending Dashboard, the IoT market size is projected to expand at a CAGR of 22% to reach a valuation of $525 billion by 2027.
Automate Food Safety Compliance and Best Practices
Ask anyone in the restaurant and food services industry about food temperature, and you’ll immediately hear that it’s a top concern. To prevent waste and illness, you must control food temperature during food storage, ingredient preparation, and cooking and serving. Maintaining facility, staff, and customer safety is imperative too.
Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations Part 11B from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
An IoT sensing system can also help you meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations by helping prevent unauthorized access, water leak damage and pooling, and failing HVAC systems. Whether in the kitchen, office, dining area, or away, you can remotely monitor your operations using IoT technology to save you trouble, time, and money.
Learn how restaurant and food services managers optimized their monitoring and saved thousands of dollars by avoiding food spoilage. They did it with real-time data from fast-install IoT sensors and meters.
Monnit Partners help their customers monitor nearly everything with their IoT networks that feature Monnit Sensors, Gateways, and Software. Some recently sent photos with brief descriptions of how they use our IoT devices to get valuable, actionable data from machines, equipment, and conditions. Here are two excellent case study examples about IoT condition monitoring.
Advanced Dubai Chilled Water Pump Performance Monitoring
Abdo Haddad, a technical engineer at IoT Plus Middle East in Dubai, UAE, designs and installs IoT networks as a Monnit Partner. Among his many projects is keeping indoor climate conditions in Dubai comfortable, cool, and safe.
Haddad and his team installed ALTA Advanced Vibration Meters on three chilled water pumps that circulate water from the air handling and fan coiling units back to the chiller in a theme park office building. They also attached an Advanced Vibration Meter on a vertical water pump used in a fire fighting system.
Results: The Advanced Vibration Meters are part of the IoT Plus Smart Facility Monitoring Solution for the company’s Preventive Maintenance Program. With the meters’ ability to measure vibration (acceleration, velocity, displacement, or acceleration peak), frequency (Hz/RPM), and crest factor on all three axes, duty cycle, and temperature of the pumps, the customer can know how well the pumps perform 24/7.
The IoT Helps a Singapore Laboratory Put Safety First
Eugene Yeo, director of WinSys Technology (winsys.com.sg) in Singapore, a Singapore government agency detect water and other liquids on the floor in one of its laboratories.
WinSys is an IT and OT system integrator and solution provider, and Monnit Partner. Yeo and his WinSys team worked with the agency to ensure one of its production facilities was safe from the safety hazard and damaging effects of water leaks and pooling liquids.
Results: The agency’s lab managers have enhanced situational awareness of facility conditions 24/7 with an IoT network of cost-effective ALTA Water Detection Sensors installed around multiple production rooms and water pipe connections. The sensor network provides an early warning system to boost safety and prevent water waste and damage to critical equipment.
