Smart Buildings

Most buildings have some level of intelligence built in, whether HVAC, lighting, or fire safety. But today, it’s possible to get more from building data, and ultimately, make better decisions.

See how this is being done for all types of buildings—commercial properties, industrial, healthcare, and education—by property owners who are taking advantage of new technologies, mobile devices, IoT, and big data.


The IoT in smart transportation has rapidly changed the trucking industry with the help of mobile and connectivity advancements.
The transportation industry is the second-largest segment investing in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), spending approximately $78 billion from 2016. Areas under which IoT can be effective with respect to transportation :-

1. Fleet Management
2. Geo-fencing
3. Public Transit Management


IoT technology helps upgrade power quality and security instead of rebuilding power grids(which is not possible) and can provide utility companies more control over operations. Light sensors can cut energy when building is not in use. Fire sensors can alert people to the nearest exit and have a head count of number of people exiting at each location.
Zero-Net Buildings(ZNE), lower electric bills and emissions and are starting to become popular on a global scale.


In the case of retail, the “things” can include RFID inventory tracking chips, traditional in-store infrared foot-traffic counters, cellular and Wi-Fi tracking systems, digital signage, a kiosk, or even a customer’s mobile device. Other domains/features are :-

1. Smart Inventory Management
2. Automated Checkout
3. Personalized Discounts
4. Beacons
5. Smart Shelves
6. Optimizing Supply Chain Management

Water Supply

Smart meters can improve leak detection and data integrity; prevent lost revenue due to inefficiency and enhance productivity by dashboard support which can be featured as customer-facing portals too.


Improving Public Safety :- Video Analytics, Smart lighting initiatives

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is a name given to the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing.
Smart Factories are, inter alia, wireless networks, smart objects, sensory technology, and actuating elements.
Asset optimization
Across all industries, smart systems are helping to make significant advances in design, engineering, production, and transportation. For example, in the automotive industry telematics can relay useful performance information. This data can influence future designs and in turn speed up production cycles to bring the latest models to market faster. These smart systems comprise a number of consistent elements: IoT-networked sensors, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications, intelligent automation, interoperability, and security protocols.

Predictive Maintenance

The next wave of business transformation with Industrial Analytics & Machine Learning. If you are a manufacturer or if you are managing a large install base of equipment, maintaining the equipment optimally is a challenge. All the concerns can be effectively addressed by integrating Internet of Things (IoT) with your current equipment – IoT is the biggest enabler of Condition Based Monitoring of Industrial Equipment, which is a prerequisite for Predictive Maintenance.
