CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE in INDUSTRIAL  INTERNET OF THINGS

A BRIEF ROAD MAP.

Govt College of Engineering Amravati ;along with DIVY IT SOlutions-Pune, the Industry partner had conceptualized  for Establishment of  a Centre of Excellence in IOT -” , who are market leaders in drives and control equipment’s. The primary objective of this centre is to produce trained manpower for IOT. This is a state-of-the-art training facility for   Smart  Home Control platform with smart sensor,I/O link platform,industrial control with Servo and VFD drive development platform with iBotics interactive Designer,Device management & Administration  .Upon Establishment ;GCOEA , will act as an independent centre to cater the needs of the technical institutes like polytechniques, Engineering institutes and Industries in this region specifically in Amravati Region.

The industry partner DIVY IT Solutions Pune, then introduced SENSITAL PYT-Australia for Collaboration in the setting up of this Centre primarily to  acts as an enabler  which will drive the various initiative by leveraging the knowledge of industry, academia, government & start-ups to democratize innovation in the IoT industry

Internet of Things(IOT)

The Internet of Things is the concept of everyday objects – from industrial machines to wearable devices – using built-in sensors to gather data and take action on that data across a network. So it’s a building that uses sensors to automatically adjust heating and lighting. Simply put, the Internet of Things is the future of technology that can make our lives more efficient.

Objective:

The objective of the centre is to bridge the gap between the Industries and the Institutes and to provide industry ready manpower in manufacturing plants of Automotive Applications, Industrial Automation, Machinery Applications and Engineering which is the need of the hour.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is aimed at enabling the interconnection and integration of the physical world and the cyber space. It represents the trend of future networking, and leads the third wave of the IT industry revolution leading to INDUSTRY 4.0.

 

Further this Centre will Serve as a catalyst to enable the start-up eco-system, Industry Engagement to Co-Create · Developing Lighthouse Projects for Business and Social Impact · Enable Research for Long Term Problem Solving · Develop Workforce to Sustain Industry’s Growth and then  successfully Showcase Success Stories of Innovation

 

Also this Centre will help in —

1.       Enhancing creative thinking skills.

2.       Be at the forefront to receive an education in Automation.

3.       Be a leader in embracing technology in an ever changing world.

4.        To bridge the gap between industry and academia by giving industrial based training.

5.        Developing critical thinking and programming of automation.

6.        Discovering real life engineering challenges and develop creative solutions to solve them.

 

Outcomes

Machines learning
Businesses have traditionally had limited insight into what happens in the field: in customers’ homes/offices, at distributors, in stores, in transit, on shop floors. By capturing continuous data from sensors in the field, meaningful insights can be derived.From products to platforms IoT creates new platform opportunities for the innovators ready to build them.
Dematerialization
Humans are relying less on physical resources and instead working smarter.

Salient Features:

Intelligence
Together algorithms and compute (i.e. software & hardware) provide the “intelligent spark” that makes a product experience smart.
Connectivity
Connectivity in the IoT is more than slapping on a WiFi module and calling it a day. Connectivity enables network accessibility and compatibility
Sensing
Sensing technologies provide us with the means to create experiences that reflect a true awareness of the physical world and the people in it. This is simply the analog input from the physical world, but it can provide rich understanding of our complex world.
Expressing
Expressing enables interactivity with people and the physical world.
Safety
As we gain efficiencies, novel experiences, and other benefits from the IoT, we must not forget about safety. As both the creators and recipients of the IoT, we must design for safety. This includes the safety of our personal data and the safety of our physical well-being.
Device Virtualization
Standardize integration of devices with the enterprise
High-Speed Messaging
Enable reliable, secure, and bi-directional communication between devices and the cloud
Endpoint Management
Manage all your device endpoint identity, metadata, and lifecycle states
Stream Processing
Real-time analysis of incoming data streams with event aggregation, filtering, and correlation
Data Enrichment
Enrich raw data streams with contextual information and generate composite streams
