“Big Mama” the live owl joins Robert Schmid onstage for LiveTALX keynote
Deloitte Digital’s IoT chief technologist, Robert Schmid, aka Mr. IoT, delivered a live-streamed keynote address at LiveWorx 2017. He took the audience by surprise as the owl from the keynote feature video made an entry on stage with him! Robert unveiled the new turnkey IoT solution for manufacturing, which delivers the value of smart predictive maintenance right at the source. It easily scales up, from a small pilot program to an entire production line to the manufacturing operation, and ultimately to your global supply network.
The best version of your business in weeks—not months
The turnkey IoT solution for manufacturing which we announced at LiveWorx is like putting all you need for IoT into one box. Monitor and detect any disturbance in your manufacturing environment and fix system failures before they happen, increase your bottom line by generating efficiencies and adding value downstream the supply chain—and scale all these benefits across all your plants and factories. The turnkey IoT solution is one of the first converged systems for IoT at the edge of your manufacturing. Pre-tested and pre-integrated to minimize risk and expedite the setup process, thus accelerating time to insight. Created by HPE, Deloitte, PTC and National Instruments.
Augmented IoT—a new reality?
Mahesh Chandramouli, senior manager, and Prashanth Jayaraman, manager, Deloitte Digital IoT, delivered a presentation on ‘Augmented IoT—a new reality?’ This session imparted an understanding of how an organization can achieve a step function change in operations through the confluence of augmented reality and industrial IoT.
Digital supply networks: The smart factory
Steve Shepley, principal, and Martin Hartigan, principal, Deloitte Consulting, Digital Manufacturing Enterprise (DME), led a session on ‘Digital supply networks: The smart factory’ that highlighted the value of leveraging exponential technologies such as sensor-based asset visibility, digital twin, predictive maintenance, and cognitive automation.
Live demos that created “traffic jams”
We held demos on the show floor throughout the conference that attracted a lot of curious minds. The two featured demos included:
- Turnkey IoT solution and field service augmented reality
This low cost, low risk bundled solution combines hardware, software, analytics, insights, and implementation services into a single pre-configured package that delivers results in weeks, not months. A very cool component of the demo included using augmented reality to perform field service maintenance on a faulty bearing simulator, which the predictive maintenance software algorithms detected.
- Retail 360°
Attendees saw how beacons and radio-frequency identification (RFID) sensors tagged to merchandise help store associates and managers track and maintain inventory in real-time, as well as allow customers to have a digitally enhanced in-store shopping experience via a mobile app.
