IOT – Learnings from the Field

Recently, buzzwords like “Digital Twin,” “Industry 4.0,” “Industrial IoT,” and “Edge AI” have dominated the conversation around IoT and sensor data. Oftentimes we envision equipment-fixing drones, 4-D models of factories, and workers in Iron Man suits. At Palantir, we have a different view, and we’re excited to share it with you. Our exploration of IOT will cover the following topics:

  • How to avoid rebuilding commoditised solutions, instead building solutions that generate Alpha.
  • Why starting small and growing with your organisation is optimal.
  • How to avoid building a point solution Frankenstein.
  • Why being predictive and proactive is more achievable than first thought.

Improving Operational Excellence with IoT

  • As digitization continues to radically transform the landscape for global supply chains and asset operations, disruptive technologies are opening the way for true end-to-end supply chain and asset visibility.
  • The need has never been greater, as supply chain disruption has reached record levels and organizations are looking to maximize their investment in their current assets.
  • Using an identity-centric approach to IoT, all the people, systems and things in a supply chain and asset management ecosystem are verified and thereby trusted for pervasive, real-time visibility.
  • Powered by the OpenText™ Internet of Things platform, part of the OpenText™ Business Network, the dual solutions suites of Shipment and Asset Intelligence enable the end-to-end visibility of shipments and assets as they move through the extended ecosystem or are in the field.

Optimizing Industrial systems (IIoT)

Industrial systems across all industries are connecting devices and components that have historically not been connected. Adding connectivity creates enormous opportunity from telematics and predictive maintenance to more intelligent operations. However, adding connectivity adds exposure to network based attacks. These industrial systems share common connection requirements of reliability, scalability, and now, security. How are your software components connected? Do your connectivity protocols meet your reliability, scalability, and security requirements?

This technical presentation takes a look Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications using the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standardized connectivity protocol from the Object Management Group (OMG). DDS is a proven, mature protocol, with over 20 years of implementation history across military, industrial, medical, power, automotive, and IIoT industries.

Creating Next Gen IoT Enabled Telecare – The Alcuris IoT Journey

What’s the first thing you do when you get home?
For Peter, it’s checking that his mum is OK. At 77, Janet is fiercely independent and wants to look after herself.

Thanks to Memo from Alcuris, a digital telecare platform that tracks Janet’s safety and well-being 24/7 using sensors around the home, Peter can now see she’s safe and sound by using the Memo app.

Alcuris wanted to transform the lives of vulnerable and older individuals by creating a whole new way to deliver care, so they turned to Eseye.

Listen to this on-demand webinar to hear how Eseye guided Alcuris through every step of their product journey, through the complexities of designing an IoT device to embedding cloud connectivity into the Memo hardware.

Paul will talk about how by collecting data from new sensors and existing infrastructure, applying advanced algorithms, the traffic flow in San Francisco has be improved dramatically. TNL participated in a proof of concept to show what it takes to deploy at scale and the results the citizens should expect.

In the talk, Paul will show you the results and what it takes besides the technology to deploy to potentially hundreds of intersections and reduce public transit travel times and the chance that you must wait for a red light, reduce CO2 emissions, deliver operation cost reduction, and increase safety.
