Read about our IOT starter kit for schools in Singapore.
Factory equipment industrial monitoring
Our client is a leading food products manufacturing company with a factory based in West Singapore. The client wanted a wireless sensor solution for condition monitoring their plant and machinery, to understand the working environment, heating, usage of certain specialized motors, etc. Due to the rugged nature of the old plant, they were not in a position to re-wire the installation and wanted a retrofit IOT solution. We designed a Zigbee sensor module based industrial monitoring system along with a software dashboard that provided periodic data on various operating parameters, which in turn assisted our client to optimize their production and maintenance schedules. Repair and maintenance costs were reduced by 4.5% as a result of deploying our solution to create success stories.
IOT success stories at workplace safety in construction
“Vehicular incidents were the highest contributor to workplace fatalities during this period,” said MOM Singapore. The ministry had also conducted over 400 inspections of factories and construction sites, focusing on workplace traffic management practices, during these five months.
This client had a 20,000 sq feet storage area with multiple bays for stacking pre fabricated components that are dispatched to many locations across the country and Malaysia. We designed a solution for construction industry monitoring system, which detected the movement of forklifts within the storage area. The forklifts were fitted with noninvasive speed detection sensors to alert supervisors on the threshold violation by forklift operators. In the second phase of the project, we deployed a mesh network that optimised the usage of storage bays as part of the warehouse automation system.
Pilferage detection system – energy management company
One of the major problems the fleet owners or transportation company faces is the theft of shipments or its attached variables during transit. Our client, a leading energy management company approached us for a solution to detect attempts to open oil valves from transformers during its transit. They wanted to track oil pilferage from these transformers and prevent people from tampering with the same. In the past, we had successfully delivered IOT solutions in transportation and logistics domain. The “things” in transportation solutions might be sensors, engines, dashboards, cameras and even the tires. But here the challenge was we need to monitor the theft of a consignment variable on the move.
A battery-powered nRF node is placed on the vulnerable parts of the transformer consignment. When the node is subjected to tampering in any way, it sends the information to the cloud using 3G connectivity and triggers real-time alerts having location info. A GPS gateway device attached to the truck handles the communication part. Add-On sensors would be installed to measure vital parameters like temperature, humidity, tilt, and shock and would send real-time data to the shipment owners during transit. The client will get both text and email alerts whenever there is consignment tampering. Automation deployment success has been huge for the client.
Solar-powered greenhouse automation
The first among our IOT success stories is of a client who is a Kenya based farming group wanting to establish a solar-powered wireless monitoring solution for his greenhouses and vertical farms. Many farmers and farming communities all over the world are on the lookout for smart farming technologies for their farms or greenhouses. The implementation of automation in farming techniques has led to better productivity and yield output.
The agriculture sensor modules should continuously monitor the environment and soil conditions inside the greenhouse. They also wanted to automate their irrigation process based on soil moisture deficit and variations in temperature & humidity. The soil pH conditions also needed to be analyzed and corrective measures needed to be taken. If there are any variations in the measured parameters, the client should be duly notified via text message along with the concerned coordinates of the fault.
Our team, who have already established themselves as a credible automation solutions expert for smart farms approached this project in a unique way. Since the greenhouses were set up in Africa, the team had to undergo a thorough check of the environmental and soil conditions of the locality. The idea was to select the best possible sensor modules for the industrial-grade solution. The client had insisted the automation solution address mainly five environmental parameters namely soil moisture, pH level, greenhouse temperature, atmospheric humidity, and ambient light. The greenhouse automation solution helped farmers reduce supervision and inspection costs from their IOT success stories.
