Band saw machines are not necessarily expensive, but the band saw belt expenses are enormous since they degrade much faster.However, without sensing and intelligent analytics, it can be only determined by experience when the band saw belt will actually break.Significant numbers of energy-consuming devices (e.g. switches, power outlets, bulbs, televisions, etc.) already integrate internet connectivity, which can allow them to communicate with utilities to balance power generation and energy usage These devices allow for remote control by users, or central management via a cloud-based interface, and enable functions like scheduling (e.g., remotely powering on or off heating systems, controlling ovens, changing lighting conditions etc.).Development of resource-constrained devices connected to the Internet also means that other applications like earthquake or tsunami early-warning systems can also be used by emergency services to provide more effective aid.such as collecting data on temperature, rainfall, humidity, wind speed, pest infestation, soil content.This data can be used to automate farming techniques, take informed decisions to improve quality and quantity, minimize risk and waste, and reduce effort required to manage crops, for example, farmers can now detect which areas have been fertilized (or mistakenly missed), if the land is too dry and predict future yields.It is estimated that in the future, successful companies will be able to increase their revenue through Internet of things by creating new business models and improve productivity, exploit analytics for innovation, and transform workforce.
An Io T-enabled intelligent system of such cases was proposed in 2001 and later demonstrated in 2014 by the National Science Foundation Industry/University Collaborative Research Center for Intelligent Maintenance Systems (IMS) at the University of Cincinnati on a band saw machine in IMTS 2014 in Chicago.The term industrial Internet of things (IIo T) is often encountered in the manufacturing industries, referring to the industrial subset of the Io T.IIo T in manufacturing could generate so much business value that it will eventually lead to the fourth industrial revolution, so the so-called Industry 4.0.The Io T infrastructure can be used for monitoring any events or changes in structural conditions that can compromise safety and increase risk.Io T can benefit the construction industry by cost saving, time reduction, better quality workday, paperless workflow and increase in productivity.
