M2M IoT Platform

Machine-to-Machine communication is the automated exchange of information between machines, vehicles, and vending machines, as well as a central control center using the Internet or mobile phone network. As one of the IoT solutions in the IoT portfolio, CAIRON provides a dynamic and versatile M2M IoT platform.

New business models through eSIM

For several years, an extraordinary increase in M2M connections has been observed. The key challenges for a successful M2M implementation are reliability, availability, and security. In such cases, special attention must be paid to security, although it is usually disregarded in the interest of cost reduction and short time-to-market.

The expanding ecosystem of electronic devices and machines that communicate with each other via mobile networks from all parts of the world has led to the development of the embedded SIM technology (eSIM or eUICC). It is the most important development of SIM card technology in the past 20 years. SIM cards embedded in M2M devices can host multiple provider profiles and allow the owner greater flexibility in choosing the provider of connectivity.

Intelligent Security: For companies and private households

Security for companies and private households is one significant area of application for IoT. In the past, security systems often used a low-resolution camera to passively record videos. Today, intelligent security systems are being specifically designed to capture, store, and analyze continuous video streams. In addition to the 4K videos captured by high-resolution cameras, these systems can analyze the data to detect specific movement patterns. This real-time information plays an important role in public safety for public transportation providers and event managers.

Smart Home: Connect your home to the Internet of Things

What if your home could be largely automatized? This means that networked home technology also falls within the IoT application areas. Intelligent speakers operate like a central command, allowing your home electronics to perform a variety of voice-activated operations. For example, you can instruct your TV to stream the latest episode of your favorite show while you dim the lights in your living room and set the thermostat to a comfortable temperature. The goal is to control most or all of a household’s systems – including energy, air conditioning, entertainment, home appliances and home security – through an interconnected network of devices, sensors, tools and platforms.

Industrial and commercial IoT

M2M technology (Machine-to-Machine)

Modern factories use IoT-enabled machines to work more intelligently and more efficiently. By equipping machines with sensors, factory managers can more precisely monitor and remotely map the workloads and inputs and outputs of machines. They can also more accurately track machine wear and tear, resulting in more predictive and proactive maintenance and improving machine life. With IoT, smart factories are increasingly automated. M2M devices use embedded and removable flash solutions to merge data at the edge into a single stream. This gateway is used to monitor and respond to changing conditions inside the factory building. At the same time, unused data is forwarded to the central cloud or data center for further processing.

Supply chains of the future

Another IoT use case involves supply chains that are becoming increasingly global and complex. Customer requirements are evolving rapidly, products need to be procured, shipping and delivery routes need to be coordinated. In response, companies are creating networked enterprise systems and using data modeling as a key element of a more comprehensive data management strategy.
For example, low-power IoT devices are used to track assets throughout the supply chain and monitor product quality such as temperature, vibration and container openings. The use of IoT-enabled devices and transport routes can further improve route planning by collecting supply chain data during transport.

Smartwatches, fitness trackers and other wearables

The market for wearables is flourishing. Worldwide acceptance of these devices is largely the result of intelligent watches, which are estimated to account for more than half of all wearables sold in the coming years. Consumers are looking for a seamless connection and interaction between their smartphones and Smartwatches to track, manage and secure their data – especially sensitive health data.

However, technological innovations do not just end up on the wrist. A new subcategory known as “hearing aids” has the potential to complement the wearables industry with voice-activated, connected headphones and earphones. One of the other IoT application areas includes wearable medical devices that monitor blood pressure and heart rate and alert rescue workers during a medical emergency.

Smart Cities: energy, transport, parking and more

One of the most promising IoT application areas is the creation of smarter and more efficient cities, so-called Smart Cities. Public energy grids can be optimized to balance the workload, predict energy surges and distribute energy more fairly to customers. The same applies to transport systems in larger cities. Traffic lights could be synchronized using IoT to adapt to traffic conditions in real time. During an emergency, first responders could also communicate with traffic lights to provide direct and rapid access to critical locations. One of the other IoT applications is the digital monitoring of parking space so that available parking slots are automatically sent as push notifications to drivers looking for them.

Creation of smart cities

Optimization of public energy grids

Improvement of traffic conditions by synchronizing traffic light systems

Communication of rescue forces with traffic light systems

Digital monitoring of the parking situations

Autonomous and interconnected vehicles

One of the IoT application areas is autonomous driving. In the future, vehicles on the road will be able to reach level 5 autonomous driving and drive completely on their own without human intervention. Cameras, radar, LIDAR and a variety of other on-board sensors are used to gather information about road conditions, to activate appropriate driving actions and to prevent accidents. However, cars of the future provide more than just autonomous driving. Through the Internet of Things, cars will be able to communicate with each other, with the road infrastructure and perhaps even, one day, with pedestrians using Vehicle-to-Everything or V2X technology. Fleets of autonomous vehicles could be managed through this type of communication, allowing faster and safer travel. Inside the car, IoT-enabled devices could improve engine diagnostics, GPS data and infotainment systems.

Intelligent Agriculture: From production to the table

Agriculture is one possible IoT application area. Modern farmers are using the technology of the Internet of Things to streamline their operations. By keeping cattle and other farm animals outdoors, networked technology can track animals that are kept on open pastures. Intelligent sensors in watering systems can reduce water consumption to achieve just the right soil moisture content for a given crop. It is even used to monitor factors such as moisture and temperature during the composting process. In addition, farmers can monitor their equipment, find out where each item is located, track its performance and perform predictive maintenance.

Monitoring of weather conditions, water consumption and soil conditions

Automated measurement of quality and quantity

Drones for industrial, search and rescue missions

For cameramen and photographers, drones have helped to capture breathtaking landscapes that were previously unavailable to visual artists. Outside of commercial use, drones serve the public good in search and rescue missions. Today, IoT drones are used in commercial, non-profit and public areas and even help to save lives.
