Presentation: Unlocking the True Potential of IOT and AI with Photogrammetry Digital Twins

There has been a long debate about what is the better way to create a digital twin: photogrammetry vs lidar. You may have heard about the advantage of photogrammetry digital twins (it is faster and cheaper to create) before, but there is another driver that is making this method more advantageous.  

  • The growth of the IoT sensor market – the IoT sensor market has been growing fast.
    => Photo-based digital twin can act as the platform to visualize the sensor data 
  • The photo information that is the feed for AI machine learning
    => Photo-based digital twin can be the foundation for the AI detection market

Presentation: Working with the Air Force to create a Digital Fire Inspection System

REscan, Inc. partnered with Patrick Space Force Base’s Fire Department to create a digital fire inspection system utilizing REscan’s digital twin technology.

The system could eventually replace the current paper-based fire inspection system, which is required annually for all buildings on the installation.

The R&D is focused on adding labels, tags and other information to fire-related elements in the digital twin, and then enabling the user with features that will help in pre-incident planning, fire inspection, and operations during an actual crisis.

Items which are connected to the base alarm system can be specifically identified in the scan and quickly found in the case of an alarm.

Pathfinding features can direct the user to any item labelled in the facility, or to the specific category physically closest to the user’s position (ie AED, fire extinguisher, hydrants etc.).

Presentation: Bolstering transparency in food supply chains

The regulatory and business landscape around the Food & Beverage industry is shifting owing to the new and emerging food risks, changes in customer perception, and policy changes. Food safety and quality have gained a fresh salience in this environment, and stakeholders in the F&B space must be ready to meet these ever-changing requirements of the VUCA world.  

One of the core things in the industry to bolster transparency is to have real-time information about the food (the who, what, why, when and how of the food). While IoT does take the center stage to ensure food freshness in the supply chain – we at Bosch, believe that it’s not one but a combination of technologies like IoT, AI and Blockchain and process-related changes that will shape the future of this industry. 

In-transit condition monitoring for the cold chains supporting timely information dissemination, to ensure that corrective actions are taken in case of any serious misses, shall not just ensure that the best quality food reaches the consumer through real-time digital quality assessment but also brings about opportunities to save supply chain costs whilst boosting its overall efficiency. 

In the talk, we would like to share our take on the future of one of the oldest industries known to humankind.  

We will be sharing our experiences and key learnings from helping our global customers with their digital transformation journey to deliver long-lasting value impact to their customers.
