Machines are the prime point of investment; therefore businesses are always on the lookout to beat the competition by successfully integrating new technologies in the shop floor. In fact, businesses are to benefit more by utilizing smart sensors to determine the condition of capital assets and improve the longevity of each machine.
These valuable data gathered from the internet of things can be utilized by technicians to carry out repair and maintenance of assets from remote areas. If the remote team is unable to solve the problem themselves on the basis of the accumulated data, then they can request for an on-field dispatch team.
Furthermore, organizations can integrate the data with augmented reality (AR) devices to complement the collaboration of technologies and enable them to employ the best skill sets to improve on a problem. The dispatch technicians can view the data or enhance the image resolution of the problem area in the AR-enabled smartphones to understand the problem and deploy the best technique to solve the situations.
The data gathered from the smart sensors and other IoT devices have the power to run predictive diagnosis and prevent any form of serious damages, improve uptime, and efficiently manage the maintenance process of the assets. The collaboration of these two novel technologies will help companies save millions of dollars as well as save precious damage control time for remote and field technicians.
