AWS IoT for Industrial Solutions

Industrial IoT – From Condition Based Monitoring to Predictive Quality to digitize your factory with AWS IoT Services

Industrial IoT (IIoT) bridges the gap between industrial equipment and automation networks (usually called OT, Operations Technology) and Information Technology (IT). In IT, use of new technologies such as machine learning, cloud, mobile, and edge computing are becoming commonplace. IIoT brings machines, cloud computing, analytics, and people together to improve performance, productivity, and efficiency of […]

AWS IoT Events for asset maintenance

Asset Maintenance with AWS IoT services – Predict and respond to potential failures before they impact your business

AWS IoT customers manage a large number of industrial assets which send sensor data to the cloud. The smooth operation of these assets is critical to the productivity of their plants, since any equipment breakdown can lead to unexpected downtime and require expensive recovery maintenance. The ability to predict such failures and respond to them […]

Converting industrial protocols with AWS IoT Greengrass

Gaining access to sensor data or telemetry of industrial machines is a key requirement for implementing high-value use cases around smart manufacturing or Industry 4.0. For instance, predictive maintenance or automated quality control is not possible without having such data at a high temporal resolution. Given the heterogeneous environment of modern industrial production lines with […]

Improving industrial safety with video analytics, AWS IoT Core, and AWS IoT Greengrass

Improving industrial safety with video analytics, AWS IoT Core, and AWS IoT Greengrass

Industrial customers are increasingly using the AWS Cloud to meet their targets for predictive quality, predictive maintenance, and asset condition monitoring. For more examples, see the Top Use Cases for Industrial IoT Applications ebook. The first of these, predictive quality, is often strongly correlated with the level of safety in an operating environment. In this […]

Perform Protocol Conversion at the Edge with AWS Lambda and AWS Greengrass

In industrial automation, you will find dozens of protocols used by devices and PLC vendors: OPC-UA, Modbus TCP, serial, and more. In fact, often in just one facility, it is common to find two similar processes performing the same function with different equipment. AWS Greengrass reduces the operational overhead for businesses to change protocols as […]

Using AWS IoT for Predictive Maintenance

The interest in machine learning for industrial and manufacturing use cases on the edge is growing. Manufacturers need to know when a machine is about to fail so they can better plan for maintenance. For example, as a manufacturer, you might have a machine that is sensitive to various temperature, velocity, or pressure changes. When […]
