The traffic experts at INRIX report that British drivers spend 30 hours per year in traffic jams. For German drivers it’s 35 hours. In the USA, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency says that 30 percent of the city’s traffic congestion is caused by drivers looking for a place to park. And the Texas Transportation Institute estimates the annual cost of traffic congestion in the United States alone adds up to $87.2 billion in wasted fuel and lost productivity. Much of this congestion could be addressed with smart Internet of Things technologies that already exist.
Energy Star reports that turning up the temperature in a data center by just one degree can cut energy costs by 4 to 5 percent. The National Information Technology Center installed in-row cooling and cut energy costs by 21 percent. The Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development updated its chillers, raised the temperature of the water used to cool its hardware, and cut energy costs by 36 percent.
A “Smart Building” integrates major building systems onto a common network and shares information and functionality between systems in order to improve building operations.
During the curing process, the Wzzard platform created a complete connectivity stack between the embedded sensors out at the construction site and the monitoring application on the builder’s network.
The aggregate producer wanted a Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) system that could monitor the motors in real time, apply data analytics to detect changes in motor behavior before they developed into major problems, and alert maintenance staff via email or text, anywhere they happened to be.
The South Beloit water treatment plant needed a sensor monitoring solution that would keep them in compliance with EPA regulations at a price they could afford. The Wzzard wireless sensing platform was the perfect solution.
A Caribbean resort realized that closely monitoring their equipment would enable preventative maintenance, and greatly extend the useful life of their air conditioning systems. The Wzzard Smart Sensing platform provided the necessary monitoring to prevent downtime.
Heathrow Airport in London needs to be able to monitor the health and condition of every machine in the system, so that problems can be identified as they begin to develop, and proactive maintenance can be done before failures occur. Downtime is not an option.
