Machine-to-Intelligence (M2I) Solutions for Energy and Environment


So let us introduce several exciting solutions in our exhibition area. First, we have the Machine-to-Intelligence for Energy and Environment solutions. Machine-to-Intelligence applications are important for the Energy and Environment industry because device management and data collection facilitates the development of further functions such as remote maintenance and data visualization. After data is processed in the cloud, big data and digital twinning are employed for performance optimization and predictive maintenance. This also ensures more stable operation, which extends the product life cycle. Advantech’s solution is an edge intelligence gateway that includes Advantech’s own edge intelligence core software — WISE-PaaS/EdgeLink. With flexible data acquisition and protocol conversion capabilities, WISE-PaaS/EdgeLink software supports various communication standards and third-party cloud platforms.


Smart Self-Healing Grid with Energy IoT Solution


A self-healing grid can pinpoint the power failure area therefore reduce the power outage range and downtime. Thus the quality and reliability of power supply service can be improved. A self-healing grid is the goal and can be done with the Energy IoT. Advantech's energy products are certified products that support various protocols to help customers monitor the power generation and usage effectiveness and power generation equipment status, providing reliable and effective information to enable smart self-healing grids.


The great integration of wireless sensing and communication devices


Wireless communication is crucial for IoT data collection. In addition to wireless Ethernet technologies such as Wi-Fi and cellular network that have been widely adopted, in recent years, low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) suitable for long-distance transmission and low power consumption, such as Mesh, LoRa, and NB-IoT have also become popular.

In this regard, Advantech provides a wide variety of sensing and communication devices that support major wireless communication and cloud integration technologies. Collecting field data to gateways, routers, and access points in the network infrastructure, wireless sensing devices can be seamlessly integrated and further accelerate the deployment of decentralized, remote, outdoor and other IoT applications with wireless requirements.


Intelligent Sensing Technology

To fulfill the big data analysis in the IoT era, the demand of data acquisition increases and becomes more complicated. Advantech proposes four major strategies for product technology development: First, data acquisition will be faster, more accurate and more intelligent; the mass signal will be transformed and filtered to effective data to reduce the network or computing loading. Second, more diverse wireless communication options will be offered in response to transmission distance and field site environment restrictions. Third, built-in fast and convenient setting interface for accessing private or public Cloud. Fourth, Advantech devices will be managed through the cloud.
