ASU Brings IoT to Sun Devil Stadium FTW Innovative uses of IoT make life on campus easier for Arizona State University students. The real fun happens at the stadium, where technology tackles entertainment and efficiency. Here’s a look at some of ASU’s IoT-powered projects.
The Future of Education is Bright with Smart Digital Highlighters Digital highlighters offer new ways for students to read. After scanning text, students can transfer, edit, and listen to the text via connected computer applications. The tools also offer text translations in multiple languages and provide assistive technology for those with learning difficulties by enhancing comprehension and reading ability.
Smart Robots use RF to Find and Grasp Hidden Objects X-ray vision may be out of reach for humans, but artificial intelligence is gifting robots with superpower senses that could prove to be vital on the warehouse and manufacturing floors.
Walmart Embraces Store Automation Technology Online grocery sales are driving traffic to brick-and-mortar stores, which are becoming inundated with shoppers. To combat congestion in the aisles, retailers are turning to automated micro-fulfillment centers, which use artificial intelligence and robots to fulfill orders in record time.
Kroger Builds an AI-based Warehouse that is Sweeter than Honey Artificial intelligence and machine learning enable robotic shoppers to fulfill online grocery orders in less than 10 minutes. Instead of walking through the aisles, the cloud-based system guides these robots as they make a beeline for each item. AI controls and manages everything from the ordering process to the delivery.
AI Brings Vision to Sight Impaired Machine learning and computer vision aid doctors in the diagnosis of diabetic-related eye diseases, enabling early treatment and preventing vision loss. People who have experienced profound vision loss might benefit in the future from an AI-based bionic eye that provides spatial awareness.
Self-Serve Salad Bars Tossed Aside for Salad-Making Robots Although the days of self-serve salad bars and buffets may be gone, the pandemic opened new doors for food preparation technology. Among the devices developed to meet new safety standards are robots that prep and serve food.
Commercial Kitchens Tap IoT to Accurately Monitor Food Metrics More than one-third of all food winds up in the trash, which wastes money and saps resources. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping commercial kitchens reduce waste from overproduction and get it in the mouths of people who can eat it.
IoT-Controlled Transport Containers Keep Food at Peak Freshness RipeLocker shipping containers use IoT to help reduce loss of fresh produce and flowers. The portable, high-tech containers precisely manage atmosphere variables and help suppress pathogen growth to fight against decay during transit, so producers can reach more distant markets via ocean and truck instead of more expensive air transport.
