Lecture electronica Conferences > Wireless Congress > Session 4: Industrial

14:35-15:00 h | Virtual

Many global IoT Projects fail or are buried during their PoC phase. The reported share of projects that never make it beyond PoC vary from 76% (Cisco study - https://www.iotforall.com/why-76-percent-iot-projects-fail-how-to-achieve-success/ ) to 30% (Microsoft study - https://www.dynamiccio.com/one-third-of-iot-projects-fail-in-proof-of-concept-poc-microsoft-research/). For Industrial IoT the Microsoft study might provide some more insights - results can be clustered into three areas: Scalability (Cost and Confidence), Business Case (Profitability and Time-to-ROI) and Organization (Skills and Support) – only one out of the top ten reasons is purely related to availability of technology. Schaeffler and Wirepas will present a real-world case on how a new solution for wireless condition monitoring was brought to factory floors at an affordable cost by deploying a wireless mesh technology – thus overcoming the threats of scalability, resource shortage and profitability. The case: Only a small share of all turning devices in industrial production sites are permanently monitored – mostly in mission critical and high cost machines via expensive cabled connections. Many of the overall production downtimes are caused by the failure of "unmonitored" devices. Schaeffler saw a big opportunity in reducing unplanned downtime for their customers by permanently monitoring the “unmonitored” turning devices to then apply predictive maintenance AI as their core competence. To get there, Schaeffler required a series of connected and battery-operated sensors. Key challenge was to identify and deploy the right wireless technology for connecting those sensors. Fundamental requirements towards the wireless connectivity were as follows (in order to avoid pitfalls mentioned in above studies): - Fast and low-cost installation for 1000’s of sensors in one location. - Ultra-reliable data delivery to the backend to avoid 2nd visits or expensive support. - Long lifetime of the devices and the network. - Massive Scalability and global reach. - Option for non-intrusive deployments, if customer access to LAN on Gateway level is not feasible. - Interoperability with other (vendors) sensors and at a system level In addition, a short time to market was crucial – through an agile mode of working and a collaboration of partners in the Finland-based ecosystem of IoT experts, Schaeffler was able to launch the solution within less than 12 months. We will also discuss how we were able to meet this timeline. As proof of success, Schaeffler and Wirepas will show a live demo and thus provide valuable insights into the real world radio environments around sensors in 2,4 GHz mesh deployments, as well as insights into the predictive maintenance and condition monitoring application itself.
