AI Tackles its Biggest Challenge Yet: Reducing Plastics Scientists are using machine learning to design plastics that can decompose easily in an effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste littering the earth and oceans. The process relies on artificial intelligence and deep learning to identify polymers that balance durability with degradability.
IoT in the New Not-so-normal Workplace For CTO and rancher Rob Rastovich, technology and the great outdoors are a perfect match. The ThingLogix CTO works with companies to build connected products and AI-driven IoT applications, and he merges his IoT know-how with cattle and irrigation management on his ranch. Is his no-code IoT platform the starting point integrators need?
Grocery Store Chain Launches Automated Pick-up Kiosk With a flood of online orders and contactless pickup, grocery stores are looking for ways to meet customer demand. Cleveron’s standalone robotic kiosk offers retailers a cost-effective alternative to last mile delivery.
The Fabrication Masters of Industrial IoT The best visionaries have both the ability to imagine exciting futures and extensive experiences to clearly assess the past. Jonathan Kim of Armada America brings both to this podcast that looks at the outlook and realities of outfitting machine shop floors with better automation through artificial intelligence (AI). Find out when and how AI can help make both authoritative and autonomous decisions based on IoT data coming from the factory floor.
Building Automation System Becomes Hub for Data-Driven Research at STEM School The installation of a smart building automation system designed to rein in energy costs became an integral part of the curriculum at a private school on the East Coast. An easy-to-use dashboard provided students with access to thousands of data points and led them to explore new ways to improve sustainability on campus.
Drones Deliver Vital Supplies and Fill Delivery Gap During Pandemic Use of unmanned aircraft is on the rise as health care facilities require ever more protective gear and medical supplies. With the promise of contactless delivery, drone developers can also bring relief to quarantined populations that struggle to find safe delivery of food and medical supplies and provide protection for delivery personnel.
Silver Lining to a Global Shutdown: Better City Air Quality Using satellite imagery, stationary sensors, and IoT air quality monitoring solutions such as the Bosch Micro-Climate Monitoring system, researchers are able to monitor air quality data from cities around the world. The real-time data provided by the sensors provides insights into the drastic—and positive--changes that have occurred from shelter-in-place restrictions during the pandemic.
Automation Testing Tools and Wearables Gear Up to Tackle Coronavirus Unknowns Data scientists and researchers are turning to robots, wearables, and data analytics to join the fight against COVID-19. Robots are helping to speed up test results, and sensor rings, watches, and wristbands are providing clues for early detection.
