At the heart of an M2M telemetry system is a device that carries data from a single machine or network of machines to a central data source, typically a cloud-based server. Data also flows back to the networked machines, based on the particular application and analysis from business intelligence software.
Excellent article. It's going to be fascinating to see the varied ways that there will be far more data-driven transactions between machines than between people. Good examples of potential applications in health care, remote control of assets, security and fleet management. Thank you.
I am seeing this technology at work during volunteer exercises for my county's Medical Reserve Corps. At a simulated disaster, patients are triaged and the info is entered by a wireless scanner, then transmitted to various hospitals. This gives the emergency rooms information about the severity and number of casualties to expect. It's a whole lot easier than manually entering information.
We can use M2M in art, entertainment, festival lighting. M2M can be used to make a dance show attractive. Dancers costumes which embraced with lights which are controlled by M2M. These lights are switched on/off wirelessly according to music to match up the choreography.
Now dairy industry is completely automated, where as the cows are milked by robots. M2M software program can read the data, which can be communicated to farmers via text messages on their smart phones. Information can be like how many cows have been milked, how much milk each cow is producing, etc.
Wal-Mart will hold its second Made in the USA Open Call July 7-8, at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. The event will be a repeat effort by the world’s biggest seller of consumer goods to increase the amount of US-made products it sells in Wal-Mart stores, in Sam’s Club members-only wholesale outlets, and on walmart.com.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
