Machine Design Was Live: IoT Emerge

Nov. 4, 2016
Machine Design went live this week reviewing technology showcased at the IoT Emerge event. 

Machine Design went live this week reviewing technology showcased at the IoT Emerge event in Chicago, November 2-4. IOT Emerge offered three days of keynote speakers, live tours of factories implementing the Internet of Things, technical sessions and workshops, hands-on training, and peer-to-peer networking with IoT professionals.

In the video below, Avnet engineer describes an app's tracking capabilities for diagnostics on a remote car. The car uses a propriety WiFi and Bluetooth module, a 9-axis sensor with 3 axes of acceleration, 3 axes of gyroscope, and 3 with digital information that is collected on the app. 

Next, a scanner from 3DPX uses proximity sensing to map out complex objects. It feeds the information to a program that turns the information into a 3D simulation.

Finally, RF Digital presents sensors that output information to its Simblee app (download for iOS or Android). The app can receive information from more than 100 RF sensors.
