10 Benefits of IoT-Enabled Remote Monitoring

Workplaces are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT). Gartner has stated that the number of connected devices will double over the next three years. Checking equipment, employees, buildings and products offers many benefits. Here are 10 of the most significant.

Boosted Energy Efficiency

One of the biggest benefits of IoT-enabled remote monitoring is reduced energy consumption. WeForum has stated that buildings account for 40% of power usage across the globe, but much of this is wasted. IoT systems can monitor and adjust operations in real-time to use as little energy as possible, making workplaces more sustainable, particularly in a time where prices are rocketing and supply is strained. 

HVAC systems are a recognizable example, but technology can save energy in many processes – be it lighting, utilities, and better utilisation of facilities such as office space, cold and hot water provisioning, to name a few. These savings will help businesses better protect the environment and reduce ongoing costs.

Improved Productivity

IoT monitoring can help improve workplace productivity. From tracking work schedules, productivity, output, machine runtime, production, capacity and status – a number of variables can be monitored to ensure operations and capital outlays are in synch, and efficient. 

IoT also helps automate routine tasks to give employees more time to focus on other matters. People that can check something remotely save a lot of time simply by not having to walk somewhere else and manually check it. Where a manual task is required, being armed with insight about what exactly to inspect or fix, based on priority and cause, improves yield.

Increased Equipment Uptime

Another impressive advantage of IoT monitoring solutions is their ability to extend machine uptime, and longevity. Predictive maintenance leverages IoT sensors to alert teams when equipment needs repair, or is not functioning optimally –  helping them solve issues before they cause breakdowns. In heavy industries or high-output environments, every second matters. 

These systems also provide diagnostics without troubleshooting, reducing downtime from regular maintenance stops. Workers who don’t have to stop something to inspect it can maximize its operating hours. Coupled with Machine Learning and the phenomena of self-healing systems – where machines are able to detect and self-remediate issues –  the future of IoT and AI holds significant promise –  

Reduced Maintenance Costs

 redictive maintenance through IoT monitoring also reduces the costs surrounding these repairs. Part of that comes from addressing problems earlier. Fixing things before they become larger issues means employees perform less expensive maintenance. 

These IoT-enabled remote readings ensure machines undergo maintenance if and when they need it. As a result, businesses reduce costs from unnecessary repairs through insight-led actions. The nature of repair can also trigger the relevant action from the right party, reducing the wasted effort in ordering parts, creating tickets, and requesting support.

Better Schedule Flexibility

Remote insight and control through IoT-based monitoring solutions enable a more flexible schedule for employees, particularly for scarce subject matter experts. Workers who can perform tasks remotely t can provide input to field workers creating an always-on, highly decentralised, mobile workforce. 

Not only does remote work offer impressive environmental benefits – it improves productivity and employee satisfaction. IoT connectivity won’t make every job remote, but it can expand which roles and tasks can be performed off-site, making schedules more flexible, and access to experts more realisable.

Improved Workplace Safety

Remote monitoring technology can also improve safety within the workplace. IoT-connected carbon monoxide or smoke detectors can sense potential hazards and alert workers on their mobile devices and other organisational health and safety systems. Additional environmental factors such as pollutants, spills, machinery risks, fires, floods, and overwork are all social elements that can be managed better through IoT. 

Being able to check critical maintenance factors remotely can also improve safety. People who work with potentially hazardous machines or in high-risk environments can determine upfront if conditions are optimal prior to and during operations – boosting the viability and sustainability of positive working space.

Better Product Quality Assurance

Workplaces that sell sensitive goods to customers can use IoT remote monitoring to raise product quality standards. IoT sensors can check temperature, humidity and other factors near storage areas to alert workers when levels go out of acceptable ranges. 

These alerts let employees address the issue or move products before they spoil. Consequently, companies can sell higher-quality products to customers and minimize losses.

Mitigated Labor Challenges

IoT-enabled remote monitoring can contribute to addressing labor obstacles many businesses face today. While the U.S. has more than 10 million job openings, there are roughly 6 million unemployed workers, making it difficult to get enough employees to sustain operations. IoT systems help by expanding remote work and improving efficiency. 

IoT monitoring lets some tasks happen remotely, meaning businesses can hire people out of state or even in other countries to perform work that once required a physical presence. Alternatively, the increased productivity from these systems could help fewer employees accomplish more work, lessening labor shortages’ impact. This is enabled through Digital Twin style interfaces, where skilled and experienced employees can ‘command and control’ key operations in real-time, behind a pane of glass.

New Operational Insight

IoT with the power of Edge Computing and Machine learning gives businesses the ability to generate new insights that were previously unavailable. . Employers can see data like energy usage, productivity patterns, how workers operate for starters. This can evolve to predicting how many resources they will need, what scenarios are likely, and what the next best actions are. They can use that information to make more informed decisions about how to improve workflows, where to send resources, what to fix, and how much inventory to keep. 

Optimization and innovation starts with understanding what works and what doesn’t. IoT sensors and data provide employers and employees quick access to insights to guide future decisions, data building blocks to generate new reports, models and plans. Teams can adopt a spirit of continuous improvement. If the data exists, anything is possible. 

Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG)

The need to focus on creating a more sustainable world through more ethical practices for the environment, workers, customers and society as a whole is gathering pace. ESG serves as a proxy for the future value of a business, particularly in the eyes of discerning customers, governments, and societies. 

The IoT solutions here have addressed multiple Environmental and Social aspects. Notably, Governance has been an audit-based task relying on methodologies and measures that are not always precise or are open to debate. Gathering data from the source, making it available to all stakeholders and delivering pro-active insights on the wellbeing of the business offers a transparent and highly responsible approach to managing ESG. 

 

IoT Remote Monitoring Can Improve Any Workplace 

IoT-enabled remote monitoring offers many benefits for businesses in any industry. More use cases will emerge as this technology improves, and current ones will become more beneficial. Implementing such a solution will become an increasingly important competitive advantage to incumbents. Given the premise of IoT is building a platform for edge computing, reporting, and AI – the future for IoT is an exciting one.

IoT and Futureproofing Your Mine

IoT and Futureproofing your mine

The mining industry presents a unique set of challenges. Mining is a high-risk, capital-intensive business that requires constant monitoring of assets, processes, and actors to ensure safety and operational efficiency. Innovative technology solutions are key to helping mining companies meet the increased demand for commodities while reducing operational costs and risks.  

IoT.nxt offers a way to future-proof your mining operation. A system of interconnected devices and sensors that can be retrofitted onto existing machinery and “things” to collect and share data which can be used to improve safety and efficiency in mining operations. This data can be used to make real-time decisions about when to shut down operations or make in-flight changes and gives mine decision-makers, operators, and owners the insight and means to improve planning and gain control of their mining operations, from anywhere in the world. 
 

Bypassing Human Error with IoT  

The mining sector still relies on multiple manual and paper-based systems for entry. Manual data entry means an increased risk of human error. By implementing IoT to replace manual data capture, such as system-to-machine communication, and using advanced analytics on the data created, mining companies improve operational efficiency and reduce the risk of human error. 

ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) Tracking  

Beyond operational efficiency, IoT solutions can also help reduce regulatory risk. For example, when it comes to environmental compliance in the mining sector, there is a lot of focus on carbon emissions, utility usage such as water and power usage, together with water quality and impact on the biological ecosystem. IoT solutions can help monitor such parameters and more, to ensure compliance reporting is based on actual data, providing alerts to ESG systems, notifying key stakeholders of any potential risk 

Real-time Asset Tracking 

Running large fleets of heavy-duty equipment that are used to transport commodities in the complete and incomplete state offers multiple challenges. This equipment typically includes heavy-duty haul trucks, loaders, excavators, and front-end shovels. To ensure safe operation, the equipment needs to be regularly inspected by trained professionals who follow a strict set of guidelines. If a piece of equipment is considered unsafe, it needs to be taken out of service until it can be repaired.

In addition to maintenance and inspection, mining companies need to be able to track their equipment in real-time, to prevent theft and ensure safe operation. It requires people to input information into spreadsheets and databases, which again can lead to errors.  To track this equipment, mining companies often use asset tags, which are manually entered into an asset tracker. The asset tracker is usually connected to a database and spreadsheet, which increases the risk of human error. With IoT.nxt’s solutions, this is replaced with direct integration into the vehicle systems with edge device capabilities. 

Digital Twins – A step into the digital age 

Mines can use Digital Twins to gain better insight into the data available about their operations, including the status of equipment and infrastructure. Receive clear, visualized information that allows for data-driven decision-making, removing the inefficiency of manual inspections and troubleshooting. Set alert automation workflows for triggers that you define. For example: Receive a notification when a vehicle is started out of its planned shift. This and more, all through a single screen.  

IoT and Futureproofing

Smart Mining Equipment 

As mining companies are increasingly adopting IoT solutions, equipment is becoming more connected. This allows companies to gather valuable insights into the operational health of their equipment and make informed decisions about preventative maintenance and repairs. This also helps monitor the operational status of their equipment in real-time to ensure safe operation, prevent unplanned downtime, and meet regulatory compliance requirements.  

Continuous Process Improvement

Mining operations are often complex and involve many workers and various heavy-duty machines. There are a few ways in which IoT can help improve the mining process and overall operations: 

Predictive maintenance

Mining companies can use IoT solutions to monitor and analyse equipment data to forecast when certain pieces of equipment will require maintenance. This helps prevent unplanned downtime and repair costs.

Visibility into operational data

Gain better visibility and insights into operational data such as the flow of materials, human resource activities, and equipment utilization. This helps improve operational efficiency and increase productivity through optimized resource utilization.

Real-time safety and operational alerts

Real-time monitoring and alerting enable mining operations to respond to potential problems in real-time to potentially prevent accidents and unplanned downtime.

Mine gold from data 

Operational data insight is gold and through it, you will be able to achieve a more sustainable, efficient, and safe mine, thus futureproofing your mining operations.

Changed global health reality accelerates IoT

Healthcare Digitization IoT.

Covid accelerated what was necessary – Healthcare Digitisation

A global pandemic accelerated healthcare facilities’ adoption of technology when large patient numbers placed extreme stress on such facilities around the world. While the worst of the impact of the pandemic has now lifted, hospitals, clinics and even private practices are now actively reviewing operations to improve efficiencies and drive cost reductions.

The realities brought upon in 2020 accelerated the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions as this technology improves business processes and unlocks efficiencies in relatively short time frames. A research report by Inmarsat shows that organisations have become significantly more proficient in leveraging IoT and the data it generates to streamline their supply chains. Companies are now shifting to ‘Digital Twin’ models of their value chains, effectively making each stage visible and trackable in digital form.

Ernst & Young states that what began as a necessary shift toward digitally enabled remote care has already reshaped care delivery in the near term in the US. “For example, nearly half of Medicare primary care visits in April 2020 were via telemedicine (43.5%) compared with less than 1% in February (0.1%). What remains unclear is whether the surge in telemedicine has made consumers and physicians more open to virtual care in the future and whether it will accelerate health care organizations’ journey towards a smart health ecosystem.”

How IoT is delivering Benefits for Hospitals

In South Africa, IoT innovator IoT.nxt rolled out a smart hospital solution during the height of the pandemic to create a connected environment that is responsive to the inputs from smart technologies installed at the hospitals, and that interacts with hospital managers to empower them with new levels of visibility and actionable information.

IoT in healthcare can deliver a range of improved business operations. These include:

  • Integration with queue management systems at hospitals to ensure relevant service and capacity planning is maintained
  • Display a view of all connected hospitals with the capability to drill down to specific sites (hospitals)
  • Allows for centralized monitoring of all areas of the hospital in the format of a Digital Twin style interface
  • Visualize and manage average time spent by patients per department to determine economic feasibility, process efficiency and real time suggested actions
  • Dashboard reporting to provide operational insight such as:
    • Visibility of the total number of admissions and visitors to the facilities over time
    • Visualize alarms and alerts based on predefined thresholds
    • Raise alarms and alerts at selected for beyond-average time spent by patients at the facility and department
    • Push-based notifications are sent on critical alarms to a select group of decision-makers or operations managers to act accordingly.
    • Compare queueing times across hospitals to advise resource planning initiatives.

 

Several aspects of healthcare operations can be improved using IoT technology.

These include:

  • Medical device subscription billing solutions
    • Integration of usage data with billing data
    • SLA -based fees & monthly usage bills
    • Predictive maintenance of devices
    • 38% increase in subscription revenue
    • 28% reduction in maintenance cost
    • Higher margins
  • Medical device workflow solutions
    • Devices can be integrated with scheduling systems to improve patient flow
    • Reduction in wait times
    • Predictive maintenance
    • Ability to have devices reserve other devices based on procedures (e.g., CT scans)
  • Asset usage availability solutioning
    • Access to asset usage information to drive improved awareness around availability and maintenance processes
    • Future asset needs can be modelled based on historical usage
    • An asset sharing network can be developed with adjacent health services
    • 28% reduction in capital spending on assets
    • 27% reduction in maintenance costs
    • Improved patient outcomes by reducing times in hospitals
    • 18% reduction in operating costs

The rise and rise of Telemedicine

EY’s report further noted that for physicians, adoption of telemedicine was a medical and business imperative, not an option. Use of telephone and video exploded from 20% to over 80%, making virtual care available at most practices almost overnight. This trend was true not only for primary care and speciality practices but also for brick-and-mortar facilities such as hospitals and ambulatory care centers. In this instance, the procurement of critical medication can be tracked from point of dispatch to receiving.

Physicians report that shifting as much care as possible to virtual channels enabled them to attend to more patients during the pandemic than would have been possible otherwise. The near-universal adoption of telemedicine may explain why very few physicians believe their practices lost patients to remote providers during the pandemic. However, practices with deeper digital capabilities and attractive digital front doors may have a long-term advantage in access to patients and a more satisfying customer experience. Thus, it is not surprising that the vast majority of physicians (81%) plan to accelerate their introduction of new digital technologies. Another 63% will make moderate or significant investments in these technologies in the next three years.

ESG: If your business could speak

ESG: If your business could speak

The shift from the triple bottom line has evolved to ESG. Loosely translated, Environmental, Social and Governance is a holistic measure of how an organisation positively or negatively impacts the environment in which it operates. The amount of waste it creates, types of resources it uses, the emissions it sets off. It is about how it treats its employees, safeguards its customer’s well-being, and how it respects communities. It is also about how accountable a business is to its stakeholders in how it sets, measures, and manages its policies on corruption, fiscal transparency, and shareholder rights. All of which serve as proxies for the long-term sustainability and viability of the business in the eyes of investors, consumers, governments, activists, and lest we forget, keyboard warriors.

The discipline 

The discipline of defining and measuring ESG is multi-faceted, complicated, and hotly debated. There is work to do for governing authorities and businesses championing the cause to align stakeholders and set a credible, pragmatic standard and measuring stick. Organisations are struggling to get these facets right; Elon Musk, a champion for a greener planet is finding himself on the wrong side of the ESG equation for questionable treatment of staff, organisations are getting penalised for ‘greenwashing,’ and popular events are retracting sponsorships due to the negative connotations of its sponsors and benefactors.

The PwC Consumer Intelligence Series states that 76% of consumers will stop buying from companies that poorly treat the environment, employees, or the community in which they operate. The report states that the biggest challenges executives face is balancing ESG with growth targets (40%), coupled with the lack of clear reporting standards and complexity (37%). In short, one can assume that managing business as usual coupled with driving ESG goals is a tough juggling act.

An agenda point

ESG is now a recurring C-Suite imperative. A Navex Global Survey on ESG spending finds that 71% of CEOs believe it is their personal responsibility to ensure their organization’s ESG policies reflect the values of their customers. With more conscious and connected customers coupled with more strenuous local and global policy measures kicking in, it is safe to say ESG compliance and the move to Net Zero is not only a critical agenda point, but table-stakes.

If you cannot measure your ESG, you cannot manage your ESG

Given the criticality for multi-national enterprises and the impact ESG targets have on share price, the need to set goals, improvements and initiatives persists. The advent of ubiquitous high-speed connectivity, cloud and edge computing means that the tons of data generated from the machines, assets, operators, and sensors that monitor a building, factory, mine, farm, or office can be harvested, aggregated, analysed, and reported on.

This presents the science and art of ESG. The science – setting the relevant KPIs that guide an organisation towards achieving its targets through clear measures on carbon emissions, health and safety standards, waste, input materials, utility usage, accidents, worked hours, sanitation, ambience, data governance, cybersecurity, and accounting standards, to name some. The art – creating a culture for measurement, healthy and thriving work settings, meaningful compensation, employee wellbeing, and retention propositions. Essentially walking the walk of creating a better world through all things E, S and G.

The good news is technology trends have evolved to a point whereby collecting these millions of data points, combining them into reports that make sense for a layperson, socialising them, and putting pro-active steps in place to tackle problems and report fairly and transparently, exists.

IoT and ESG – Six letters that work hand in hand

The internet of things offers a compelling proposition to the C-Suite agenda to definitively tackle ESG. It gives the ability to provide a real-time pulse-check on ESG. By accumulating multitudes of data on the vital signs of each organ contributing to the ESG body or scorecard, such a solution has moved from a nice-to-have cost saver to an indispensable enabler. The vitality of a modern-day business now increasingly depends on indicators mostly left to manual and cursory checks, dated and batch feedback loops and unverifiable reports – this same data, left to the eye of auditors leaves the enterprise in a position of uncertainty. Not being able to measure impact now presents a high risk, not only from inefficient management protocols, but being on the lagging end of ESG responsibility.

Real-Time Data Collection

IoT – particularly the ability to sense, collect, measure, and detect anomalies for decision makers to act, operators to respond, and auditors to report in real-time and retrospectively now becomes an asset to shift a business from an annual reporter of ESG and corporate responsibility focus and wins, to a real-time custodian of ESG as a daily mission, mantra, and critical objective for the wellbeing of the entire enterprise and its societal influence.

IoT and edge computing can serve as the golden thread across the three pillars of ESG. The ability for high-power edge computing gives the means to see, hear and touch every part of a business’s operations through:

  • Environmental: Gathering key measures on energy consumption, water leakage, waste, environmental impact, and biodiversity with a detailed overview of carbon credits and overall footprint
  • Social: Monitoring working conditions, manufacturing environment quality, ambience, labour and fair practice measures, safety alerts and controls, data security and breaches
  • Governance: Where technology becomes a means to control and enforce the various measures associated with achieving ESG goals through proactive measured and dashboards for executives and operators to enforce ESG protocols proactively.

IoT.nxt and your ESG Digital Twin

The Digital Twin model is a powerful phenomenon and implementing this framework poses significant benefits for 21st-century enterprises. A real-time, digital rendition of an organisation serving as a virtual ‘carbon’ copy gives an easy-to-interpret, insight-packed rendition of wellbeing. Giving on-the-ground up to C-Suite employees the ability to understand impacts on the environment in real-time through active insight and geospatial models, gives rise to multiple benefits:

  • Providing accurate, real-time reports from the data generated by systems, assets, and actors of an organisation – curated to serve ESG scorecards and benchmarks
  • Operational scenario planning by toggling production asset configurations, risk events, and capacity schedules at scale, across all operational sites and places of work
  • Testing new production configurations to determine the environmental impact, efficiency or offset of new ideas in a time, space, and physically simulated environment
  • Driving new ways of work, whereby workers are connected to data, tasks are prioritised by ESG and operational imperatives are driven by ‘next best action’ tasks and workflows
  • Creating sustainable working conditions by better managing the conditions staff operate under by combining environmental and asset telemetry data to improve health and safety

There is still a way to go before there is consensus on how ESG is to be tackled. What is not debatable is that businesses wear the responsibility of a healthier planet. We are helping businesses realise ESG goals across Mining, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Utilities, and Smart Spaces. We continue to chart new territory by ‘plugging in’ businesses that operate in the densest, to the most remote spaces of our globe.

Digital Twins and IoT- a step into the Metaverse

Digital Twins | Metaverse | IoT

You have heard about the Metaverse, and likely Digital Twins – the digital representation of an organisation by location, its associated physical assets, actors and the relevant data these provide through their day-to-day running of a business. Digital Twins give decision makers and operators the means to better predict events and direct resources based on their utilisation, capacity, and perhaps most importantly, the likelihood and impact of an event occurring.

With the proliferation of Machine Learning – notably in real time, Digital Twins have evolved to answer the question not of “What happened?” or “What is happening?”, but to “What might happen?”, or “What should I do next?”. This is a step up from traditional BI models in that the graphical user experience is graphic rich and moves decentralised business owners and managers a step closer to stepping into their environments, virtually.

The value unlock here is significant. In industries where seconds impact productivity, sales, and resource allocation – the ability for scarce subject matter experts to make decisions quicker, armed with data, is compelling. Better yet, the technology to do this – high speed connectivity, powerful data streaming, rapid and broad machine to machine integration, visualisation, mobility – exists.

But the Metaverse…

… although aspirational and exciting, is a prickly subject. It comes caveated with “not so easy to deliver and scale” requirements of powerful graphics cards, headsets, screens and ubiquitous, high quality bandwidth to stream all of this rich content reliably. Operationally intensive environments such as Oil & Gas, Utilities, Mining, Telecommunications, and Retail require field workers to inspect, fix, and work on assets in low connectivity, sparse, outlying locations. Environments such as cities, malls, built and population-dense areas make the provision of actionable data a challenge given the multiple interrelated events and activities that take place simultaneously; all of which create silos of data that may or may not be useful to gather. If these were broken into constituent parts, labelled, consolidated in time slices and statistical data aggregations that make business sense to accelerate decision making – the opportunity cost of doing vs. not becomes a competitive edge. Particularly where these abstractions of data are made useful for the entire enterprise to create a more insight driven environment. The business case here is tough to contest. 

In terms of the Metaverse value proposition, virtualising places of business, assets and activities is a challenge. The Metaverse aspiration becomes more deflating given that workers need to be connected to the internet and every device, new or old, attached to, or embedded with a sensor – we need not go into the ideal way to consume this content, and the Web 3.0 references. Structural and spatial models require digitisation to a precisely scaled digital rendition, geo-located and marked against the assets and actors that interact within these environments. The Metaverse’s background is influenced by gaming. Big teams creating content powered by gaming engines to deliver gamified experiences. Very cool, but a tall ask to get credible business value through a Metaverse play, right?

Where this goes – a mix of pragmatic use cases and delivering value

Gartner’s report on the Evolution Spectrum for the Metaverse is telling. It alludes to early Metaverse innovators (20% of the total amount) kicking in from 2025 up until 2027. Early adopters seldom achieve the benefits of innovation projects. Given the time taken to productivity for innovative technology initiatives on the Gartner Hype Cycle, we are looking at three to five years before these “Innovation triggers” become more beneficial than not.

The good news is that this need not be the case.

The Metaverse is not just super rich 3D graphics, Virtual Reality headsets (later, contact lenses) and Minority Report-style interfaces. It implies that value is underpinned by well-thought-out, data-rich, responsive and up-to-the-second style reports and interfaces that are easy to interpret, and drive action (anyone remember Command and Conquer”). Businesses are reaping the benefits of these types of arrangements, today!

It gets better. We are scratching the surface of the digitally connected world. A report by Jefferies, titled – Metaverse – the Digitisation of Everything?, suggests that we are still early in most aspects discussed here. Roughly 40% of the world’s devices are “Metaverse Ready” (i.e., can be “plugged in”), and the number of devices that will become IoT connected will double in less than three years – this number is predicated on the basis that the things which will not connect to the internet remain stagnant, effectively becoming diluted in the global ocean of hyper-connectedness.

This matters! Given that Gen Z’s will be the main proponents of this new world. The expectation of everything being digitised, actionable and insight-rich will be commonplace. You know, that feeling of not being able to Google something quickly at the dinner party? That will be the expected de-facto user experience.
