The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enable these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of about 30 billion objects by 2020.
The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities.
Towards the latest developments and activities, ES Systems offers complete IoT solution integration services according to each customer’s requirements and applications.
Developed Application Examples
ES Systems has developed a complete smart system solution for condition monitoring of industrial equipment. The system features synchronous sensor sampling with wireless communication enabling optimal vibration and condition monitoring of equipment. The wireless capability enables installation at remote locations with minimal installation cost while supporting WiFi and BLE 4.0 wireless protocols allowing installation and communication integration in existing wireless infrastructures. The data collected from the system are transferred to the cloud or to secure servers where end users can execute their predictive maintenance algorithms. For more information click here.
