What are “Connected Products”?
Connected products” include all devices that are connected to the Internet and share information about themselves, their environment and users with other devices via the Internet.
With our field-proven IoT ARIGO Framework Rumo 4.0, we succeed in connecting your products with each other via IoT and IIoT. This makes it possible to create precise analyses of the usage behavior of your products, to visually display real-time data in order to optimize your internal processes and to maintain, control and monitor your systems remotely. Your data is made available in the cloud via connections to web services such as Azure, AWS, and many more.
What advantages do networked devices offer?
The networked devices share collected data with each other and with the help of this data there are numerous opportunities to make life easier and safer in every way.
It makes it possible to create more efficient workflows and improve operations. With the help of this data, new business models can be created, or products and services can be better designed and developed.
Continuous monitoring can improve support and optimize usage. Thus, it is possible to predict and reduce failures and downtimes, as possible service needs can be detected at an early stage. Furthermore, the devices can be monitored and controlled remotely, which minimizes expensive service calls.
Examples of Connected Products
- Intelligent locks
- Intelligent thermostats
- Intelligent lighting
- Intelligent Security
Enterprise products are designed to maintain buildings, keep them safe, and improve operational efficiency.
An employee is asked to schedule an upcoming meeting. Using sensors, this employee can determine which meeting room is occupied at the time of the meeting and which is available. He can also determine, based on certain criteria, whether the meeting room is suitable in terms of size and function for the planned meeting. After the employee has found a suitable meeting room, he reserves it for the upcoming meeting. After the meeting participants enter the room, the sensors determine how many people are in the room and adjust the room temperature accordingly. As soon as the meeting organizer starts his presentation, the blinds are lowered and the light in the room is dimmed.
During an assembly line or other manufacturing process, a fault occurs and the entire line comes to a halt. The sensors monitor the entire manufacturing process and transmit the data to ensure that the processes are running optimally. In this case, the fault is diagnosed directly based on the data obtained and the diagnosis is sent to a system engineer. The system technician can use the diagnosis to determine whether he still needs to obtain a product from the warehouse to rectify the fault, or whether he can rectify the fault in a different way and possibly also remotely.
