Beware of and prevent data compromise in IoT.

Beware of and prevent data compromise in IoT.

The present generation is living and working in an increasingly digital world. Legacy systems are getting integrated with digital ones as the digital transformation expands worldwide. The current generation has the privilege of the internet which is now available all the time and practically part of their lives.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not just part of smart connected devices and smartphones, but is also spreading across financial and industrial sectors. Industrial IoT (IIoT) is reshaping things in manufacturing and smart products radically.

Companies are integrating legacy systems to an IoT platform to make fully automated factories or management systems. All activities can be monitored and controlled through the digital platform. This is happening in a wider scale with the advent of smart city projects.

Protection & Safety. However, the digital environment is not immune to security threats and cyber-attacks. Thus the digital environment and IoT platforms too have to be protected and secured to ensure trust and reliability in use and function, to all stakeholders. There are some simple ways to prevent data compromise and breaches or vulnerabilities.

Better to avoid Bluetooth. Bluetooth which is a wireless technology for data sharing in physical proximity of devices does not use the internet. But it is also not perfectly safe either. Avoid it as it can be hacked.

To prevent vulnerability turn it off when not in use or, keep it in ‘non-discoverable’ mode; decline ‘pair with device’ requests if an unknown source. You can also install anti-virus and firewall in such devices.

Updates & Passwords. No system can be 100% safe, so update your devices’ software regularly to avoid any data breach. A strong password is an IoT way of protection, so follow the guidelines carefully.

Protection via VPN connection. Top Virtual Private Network (VPN) providers offer a practical and safe way as they provide encrypted data transmission, masking your IP address and offer cyber security features.

GDPR Compliant. One of the ways to ensure safety of your IoT solutions and proprietary data is to build it GDPR compliant.

Data privacy is an issue in the wake of cyber-attacks and data breaches or leaks, mainly owing to the enormous data traffic and storage on the web and connected systems. To prevent data compromise be ahead in prevention and protection. To prevent phishing and data theft avoid sharing personal information on social media or exact location. Read the fine print before sign-up or clicking ‘I Agree’.

However, new technologies and software are being developed updated and shared for better security consolidation over the internet. It is in your hands to adopt the right strategy, hardware and software to build and use the preferred IoT platform and systems.

IoT is a framework of complex layers of interconnected devices, sensors, machines, gadgets, software, etc. It empowers any industry (IIoT), business, service or organisation, to plan and fully exploit hi-tech systems and connected devices or machines.

Empowering OEMs for the digital era with IoT solutions

Empowering OEM's for IoT

The impact of digital transformation is being felt in all quarters of industry and business globally. Evolving customer needs has seen growing complexity in machine design and manufacturing. So, OEM machine builders have to step up from their traditional machine design practices to deliver ‘smart’ machines that yield higher throughput and are safer, but reduce cost of operation.

If machine builders don’t integrate an Industrial IoT solution into their system first, they will miss out on an opportunity to grow and also to provide additional services to their customers or clients. It is now time an industrial Internet of Things solution is incorporated into the machines that are being built by them, again to provide those additional services for the customers.

OEMs should integrate industrial IoT solutions with their machines, in the manufacturing process and offer to sell the machine itself as a service based on its performance. The GPS Tracking system used with sensing devices built in to transfer data on various parameters is useful for monitoring and assessing performance in real-time. A web-based IoT platform can integrate a mobile app for users.

The IoT solution is to leverage and differentiate the OEM from other competitors. Obviously empowering OEMs with IoT offers great benefits in this digital age.

  • Performance: By monitoring machine performance the OEM can show value addition to the customers’ production process. New business models tend to sell machine as a service, with a performance based price structure. Customers benefit by reducing process lead time, waste and downtimes. In machine as a service customer does not pay for defects or downtime or replacement.
  • Maintenance: OEMs can collect useful data if the machine is connected online. the data accessible will show how the machine is working, if any anomaly is detected. So stakeholders can take be warned and made to take corrective actions. Analysing the data helps recognise machine failure in advance and help predictive maintenance. The data analysed can also help OEM to improve on maintenance, performance and make design alterations if required.
  • Big Data: if data is collected from all over the world a huge set of data can be obtained. This Big Data can be used to understand how machine design can be improved. A predictive maintenance strategy can be developed in a global scale with Big Data analysis by the manufacturer. As for the customer, he gets useful insights out of Big Data analysis, to his advantage that the OEM can share. Statistics and KPIs will help customers to benchmark their machine’s (or machinery’s) performance against the competition in the market.

The Trinetra T-Sense’s software platform empowers an OEM or any other company to plan and maximise utilisation of your machines and business assets with an IoT strategy for the digital era.

Smart Waste Management System Using IoT

Smart Waste Management Solutions

By 2025, the smart waste market is expected to grow to 223.6 million with a CAGR of 17.3 percent. Waste management is one more field where implementation of IoT can help. Nowadays, municipal governments are using this technology to keep cities clean. Smart Waste Management System aims to address environmental issues associated with inefficient waste management and also reduce operational costs related with waste management.

The main challenge of waste management

Recycling and other methods of handling waste such as commercial composting and waste-to-energy systems have been growing in popularity since from 1970s, hence the maximum quality of waste is still ends up in a landfill. Municipal governments often don’t deal with waste management as effectively as they could.

In most cities, a waste management service provider follows a set of predetermined route to empty the street trash bins. Bins will be emptied whether they are full or not, which leads to wasting fuel and other resources.

These inefficiency presents a major challenge for waste management. Some bins may be empty most of the time, while others are packed to overflowing.

IoT Applications in Waste Management

The most common IoT application in waste management operations is automated route optimization of garbage pickup trucks. Sensor-enabled and internet-connected garbage bins can collect information on fill level, location, temperature and etc.

With a user interface finding the locations and fill levels of all bins, waste collectors can get an automated route planned for them that has prioritized areas in urgent need of clean-up and avoided disposal units that still have room. This effective solution reduces waste collection frequency dramatically, enabling you to save on fuels, labor and fleet maintenance costs. It has been seen that the solution has reduced the operational cost of municipalities up to 80%.

Future of IoT Applications in Waste Management

Ultimate goal of IoT applications in waste management is producing leaner operations as well as delivering higher quality services to the country. A growing collection of interlinked autonomous systems are managing everyday urban operations and improving both citizen experiences and our carbon footprint.

Manufacturers who think beyond the use of sensors can consider implementing IoT with which they can build smarter applications as per the business need.

Making a difference with Digital Twins & Digital Thread in future.

IoT Solutions

The emerging technologies of IoT (Internet of Things) may create some confusion as the concepts of applications have similar approach and often are intricately connected. This is especially so when we talk about the concepts of Digital Twins & Digital Threads, which work in the same type of environments.

Actually the two concepts have been around for a long time but new technologies of IoT have made them now accessible, useful and powerful. In IoT the two concepts are inextricably connected to current industrial applications and environments. Before we differential the two, the way to describe the two concepts is as – a digital thread unites the diverse but interrelated data to uncover useful insights; whereas data unification is a critical pre-requisite to build a digital twin models.

DIGITAL THREAD CONCEPT. The digital thread concept creates a way to universally access data as a single source. When it is implemented across the enterprise it aims to bring consistency and promote collaboration by leveraging a robust cache of data to align different functions. The data cache has real-time data synchronisation to make available all upstream and downstream information.

Large industrial enterprises with a global presence can use digital thread. It seeks to bring advanced product innovation and differentiation, besides optimising processes and efficiencies. It aims to empower employees for higher productivity and quality. For equipping the employees with right information at the right time across the value chain, it leverages a variety of technologies for this. In an enterprise, data usually comes from CRM, ERP, BOM, MES, CAD and others. Digital Threads can potentially go beyond manufacturing software to include other sources of related software & data. It is flexible to adapt to the identified use case and used for some business outcomes needed by enterprises.

DIGITAL TWIN CONCEPT. The digital twin is developed as a digital model which is a virtual representation of its physical counterpart. But they can also be developed for other purposes like operations, processes or even employee tasks. These models are getting more usage in industrial sectors. It is to understand the physical model to predict behaviour or reactions and draw better insights. Digital Twins leverage multiple data caches. It includes anything from sensor data to business system data. One digital twin model can be leverage by many other applications and for different roles. New and additional value can be discovered. For instance, the same model involved in quality assurance can assist a technician at a service call.

Into the Future. The two technological concepts are more used by the industrial enterprise to drive business outcomes and unlock opportunities. Emerging tech like VR and AR are being integrated into these concepts.to realise value, streamline processes and empower employees, enabling cost and time savings.
