Start driving decisions with machine data.
Categories:

    A grant in Ohio sees the value of what technology just like ours can do for small manufacturers - and they have $100,000 to figure out exactly how IoT can help these small businesses.

    The grant is focused on three neighborhoods in Cleveland and includes team members from Case Western University and Cleveland State University.

    "Imagine a screw manufacturing factory where each machine is wired with sensors. When a machine malfunctions, a signal is sent wirelessly to a parts shop across town, telling it to ship the part that's needed to repair the screw-making machine. The malfunctioning machine is soon running smoothly, with no time lost."

    That's exactly what we do! Projects like these could help not only Cleveland manufacturing but the entire industry! Staying up with current technologies will help you get ahead!

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Imagine a screw manufacturing factory where each machine is wired with sensors. When a machine malfunctions, a signal is sent wirelessly to a parts shop across town, telling it to ship the part that's needed to repair the screw-making machine. The malfunctioning machine is soon running smoothly, with no time lost. That's an example of the Internet of Things, physical items connected wirelessly, so they can communicate and make data-based decisions. The term also describes everyday devices connected to the web. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of about 30 billion objects by 2020, excluding smartphones, tablets, and computers, according to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
