Dancing with Data Science at the Edge

Abstract: Realizing when mechanical devices (e.g. pump data, manufacturing devices)  are having mechanical issues and are showing signs of failure (via sensors) are important items to know when you need to keep your mechanical devices running 24/7.  Therefore creating failure prediction algorithms and/or model(s) are essential parts of your mechanical equipment maintenance toolbox.  But how do you get started? Is it hard to curate sensor data? How do you create, train and deploy failure prediction algorithms and models?  What kind of platform do you use for these items? Failure prediction in real time on time series data (gathered by sensors)...

IoT Case Studies in Real-Time Operations: Why “Good Enough” Isn’t “Good Enough”

Session Abstract: The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) rests on a foundation of real-time location and/or condition information, and the actions that can be taken to improve business performance with that information.  Yet, often due to the inherent nature of connectivity challenges or the inherent nature of the location technology, real-time visibility falls short of 99+% location accuracy and reliability.  In this session, we will explore the following: Shortcomings of various RTLS solution types Case studies of companies achieving 99+% accuracy Benefits of greater system performance The bottom line: 80-90% location accuracy may sound “good enough,” but for...
