The Internet of Things: Efficiency, Productivity and Operational Gains
With stories ranging from self-driving tractors and sensors embedded in the farm field to pants that can be used like a touchscreen, it’s no wonder that the Internet of Things (IoT) sits at the top of technology consultancy Gartner’s “Hype Cycle” graph.
GE, however, has already put IoT to good use serving a range of customers and sectors, and its potential is being further developed to achieve significant gains in operational efficiency, productivity and seamless production cycles. This use of the Industrial IoT is being realized across multiple sectors, including power, water, healthcare and aviation.
At the heart of GE’s IoT strategy is Predix, a powerful new software and application operating system that has been developed by the company specifically to connect people, big data and heavy machines over the Industrial Internet.
Predix also can be deployed in the cloud to make it more widely accessible and available. These Predix apps, called Predictivity solutions, allow companies to do big data analytics, monitor machines remotely and have those machines ‘talk’ to each other. Predictivity apps can do things like keep an eye on locomotives, collect data about heat and vibration, and predict when users need to perform maintenance or replace parts.
A Gold Sponsor of ioTx, the region’s first dedicated IoT event, GE will be presenting examples of its current and future IoT and Industrial Internet technologies that integrate the power of the physical and digital worlds by meshing advanced analytics with heavy machinery, Industrial Internet.
IoT solutions, including the world’s first brilliant wind turbine. The 2.5-120 is the world’s most efficient high-output wind turbine. Drawing on IoT technology, the turbine’s high efficiency and high output helps wind farm operators unlock higher returns at low wind speed sites.
The ioTx conference and exhibition brings together smart and connected enterprises, governments and consumers to explore how to leverage the tremendous possibilities offered by the connected world of IoT.
