Industrial Internet of Things

The Industrial Internet of Things will enable a factory manager to monitor and track assets in real-time, thereby creating a potential for data-driven decision making towards system and process optimisation.

Goals of the project

1. Provide a framework for mapping the energy usage landscape in a manufacturing assembly line
2. Optimize energy usage in a manufacturing assembly line

Our Partner

We are delighted to work with Vinyas Innovative Technologies Pvt. Ltd. – located in Mysore. Vinyas is a PCB manufacturer whose factory is equipped with automated robotic and wave soldering.

Project Achievements

Our proof-of-concept involves real data from an SMT assembly line. Real-time factory data is gathered and analysed to generate actionable knowledge.

Sensing Modalities and Network Deployment

Data is collected from sensors connected to IOT End-Devices at the factory via IOT Gateway and Middleware server to the data store server at RBCCPS, IISc Bangalore.

Model Exploration

This involves the development of a detailed simulation model of the manufacturing line for prediction, bottleneck identification, what-if analysis, optimization and real-time monitoring.

Data Analysis

Algorithms were developed for detection of events in the machines. These events were further used to generate parameters for the simulation model.

Visualization

A 2D dashboard and a 3D model have been designed to provide a summary statistical analysis and show the events in the factory in real-time.
