Simplifying mobile servicing by using machine monitoring and (process) control
Applications for mobile devices (such as the smart watch, tablet or mobile phone) which monitor machines are being created by combining different technologies.
Imagine you are building a new business model that rents out machines (for example, a freezer). To get a competitive advantage, you guarantee that your superior service will ensure a longer uptime. The machines are monitored by sensors to achieve this. These sensors can then be connected to the MICA using USB, Bluetooth and/or WIFI.
The collected data is processed on the MICA (fog cloud) and then sent over the network to a server system to be evaluated and archived. Necessary measures, such as servicing or emergency intervention, are then taken based on the status determined from this evaluation. Based on the results, schedules for service technicians are created.automatically and necessary measures are taken. The details about the status, location and required actions are sent to an appropriate service technician. The solution from Akquinet takes advantage of middleware, BPM, BRM and web technologies.
