Machine-to-Machine communications marks the basis of the connected environment that is the Internet of Things. While Intelligent Transportation Systems and manufacturing operations have gained a lot through access to real-time data through business intelligence and reporting apps allows operators to solve problems at the production level. Applications to interface with machines provide data for maintenance technicians and supervisors to track utilization on the production floor, while at-a-glance visibility drives competition among operators to exceed company metrics.
Customer relations have a lot to gain by catering to the Internet of Things revolution between businesses who are able to track shipments through each stage of their transportation, from beginning to end while allowing for continuous communication. Proactive replenishment that caters to replenishing stocks in services like vending machines using RFID price tags progress the way that inventory is managed. Predictive maintenance that anticipates the replacement and ensures maintainability of parts as needed through use of sensors that monitor homeostasis, checking service schedules and alerting management and systems of the need for upgrades. As a leading software development firm in the ITS industry, Ayoka’s Made in USA model for software development is valued by both State and Local governments, along with prime contractors seeking a local team member with transportation software development experience. Ayoka’s services for transportation software development incorporate legacy sub-systems, such as existing traffic control software, in an flexible architecture that can grow toward future web application standards while remaining interoperable across municipalities and multiple vendors.
Moving through the automated systems of manufacturing and logistics and into the lives of individuals in the form of connected cars,electric utility management, healthcare, and connectivity of electronics to your own mobile device are already coming around the corner. Wireless prices have dropped and the size and sturdiness of ever-smaller devices can be seamlessly implemented into an array of things that we use daily while cutting production cost in connnectable things from smartwatches to smoke alarms, as it can withstand overheating, power spikes while providing a reliable signal in hard to reach areas like parking garages, and other tough usage conditions.
I’m excited to see this move through the stages of development and implementation into devices in the future! Imagine, we are one step closer to total immersion in the IoT!
