Leveraging Next-Gen IoT for Automation of Silo Monitoring and Management

LvLogics provides accurate and reliable silo levels as-a-service to end users, distributors and manufacturers of animal feeds, wood pellets or any solids or semi-solids. The patented solution enables low-cost sensors to be used in dusty environments and solves the issue of constant maintenance, manual workflows and unreliability due to dust in an aggressive environment.

Improve efficiency and throughput with seamless connectivity for intelligent exoskeletons

Introducing the intelligent power suit from German Bionic, underpinned by global BICS IoT connectivity. By combining human intelligence with machine power, the suit, worn on the body like a backpack, supports and enhances the wearer’s movements, reducing the risk of accidents and excessive strain. Embedded sensors and built-in IoT connectivity enable ongoing improvement and integration with smart factory systems.

Case Study: Knode

A farm can’t function without water. In order for a farmer to keep an eye on supply, water tanks, troughs and pumps must be checked at every opportunity. If not monitored, thousands of dollars can be lost in revenue, electricity and wasted water if a leak develops on the property’s supply infrastructure.

Attack of the Invaders: How IoT Technology Is Helping Stop Harmful Pests

Agrint is an exciting new company using smart sensors to help detect the infestation of the Red Palm Weevil and similar insects. Agrint has developed a low-cost and low-energy IoT (internet of things) system which can transmit early detection notifications about infestation of a tree.

Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory

The Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) is an application that recognizes the great humanitarian and scientific potential of the IoT. Partnered with Oregon State University and the Delft University of Technology, the organization aims to create a socially driven network of 20,000 connected weather monitoring stations every 30 km across the continent, to accurately measure previously undocumented weather systems, and leapfrog Africa to one of the best monitored continents in the world.
