Predix from GE and the Industrial Internet of Things
Heavy industry has always been advanced through developments in technology. Mechanization. Assembly lines. Automation. All were transformational in their day. Now, the proliferation of networked devices has spawned an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), which has the potential to be just as revolutionary.
Several factors are driving the surge in IIoT activity. Sensors are smarter, cheaper, and more reliable than they once were. Developments in cloud computing are driving down the costs of data storage. The ubiquity of networks allows for easier data collection. New data and analytics tools are being introduced and improved upon constantly.
The IIoT is producing a wide range of previously unseen advancements, including:
- Smart light applications that help customers save time and money
- Temperature-sensitive shipping to reassure wholesalers in the pharmaceutical industry
- Smart refrigeration to prevent spoilage for grocers
- Embedded sensors in tires that track fuel consumption, tire pressure, and more
At the forefront of these developments is Predix from GE. The premiere cloud platform for the Industrial Internet, Predix enables application development for assets across various heavy-industry sectors. This helps companies gather data, enhance monitoring, and discover new operational efficiencies.
