There’s no denying it, robots are cool, even more cool when you call them cyber-physical systems, which is what they are, but they’re also IoT systems. And applying the thinking of IoT to robots makes them even cooler and more valuable because instead of being discrete systems, they can be integrated as a component of an IoT environment, working together with other components, to deliver outcomes.

Episode 79

There are two types of manufacturing: discrete manufacturing where the output is physical, countable things, and process manufacturing, where the output is chemistry – think oil & gas. Process manufacturing has been consistently instrumented for over two decades so it is not surprising that they’re a little ahead of their discrete counterparts on their path to IoT.

Episode 76

Security and privacy are uttered together so often that many believe they’re the same thing. They’re not. Security is a technical issue and privacy is a business issue, and furthermore, privacy is only one type of liability that should be considered when talking IoT security.

Episode 75

What’s the legal definition of a product? Does it cover IoT and is IoT classified a product or a service? Given our laws were never designed for the types of products being sold today, it’s not surprising that there are different interpretations of our current laws and regulations when it comes to IoT.

Episode 74

Let’s face it, deploying IoT within a company, especially a large one, is an exercise in change management. To be successful on this multi-year journey takes a lot of planning, getting your priorities straight, some politicking and a bit of luck.

It seems like predictive analytics gets all the attention these days but generally speaking, it requires either a Data Scientist or a machine learning algorithm operating on lots of event data, in order to predict the all-important dimension of time, at least to any degree of useful certainty. Enter prognostic analytics. In a closed system of uniform conditions, prognostic analytics can make better predictions about the “when”.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Moritz von Plate about how the characteristics of this older-school stats make it very well suited for predictive maintenance in Industrial IoT ...
