At Siemens Corporate Technology, experts are putting the Internet of Things (IoT) within reach of local small and medium enterprises. Dr. Yuan Yong, a senior key research scientist at Siemens China, is leading a group of researchers and engineers who are using semantic technology to add meaning and context to data. This greatly simplifies the deployment of data acquisition systems for cloud-based remote condition monitoring.
A pilot project with Miracle Automation Engineering, a leading manufacturer of automotive assembly lines in Wuxi, a major city near Shanghai, is now providing valuable test results for this technology.
Over the last few years, Miracle has installed automotive assembly lines in factories all over China and thus also provides maintenance service for these lines. The company is therefore highly interested in remotely monitoring the status of its critical components in order to be able to replace worn or degraded parts before they fail and cause expensive downtime and production losses. Cloud-based remote condition monitoring and data analytic solutions developed by Siemens Corporate Technology can address Miracle’s needs and help them provide better service to their customers.
