Internet of Things (IoT) in the Oil and Gas Industry

ژانویه 23, 2017
In the last few years, Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as a leading technology, offering solutions to a wide range of industries. Whether it’s home automation, healthcare or manufacturing, IoT-based applications are fast becoming popular. The Oil & Gas industry, too, has leveraged Industrial Internet of Things to its advantage. Here’s a quick look at some of the ways in which the Oil & Gas industry has used sensor embedded equipment, cloud-enabled devices, apps and analytics, and related technologies to make things more efficient. Automating Remote Operations At a time when well drilling and completion complexities are increasing and field experts are becoming scarcer, automation offers many benefits. Delegating work to computers eases a lot of these problems and streamlines the process to make it effective and efficient. Enabling Massive Data Collection Industrial Internet Technology can tackle large-scale collections of data across an entire site. It then processes this data and offers insights that can lead to better decision making related to factors like location of wells and optimal operating conditions. Integrating Analytics IoT Analytic platforms are especially useful in providing real-time analytics that directly drive process improvements and production optimization. Every smart machine within every system gets connected, after which, data is driven up to site busses and eventually into the cloud or control centers for consolidation at the application level. Securing Operations Some IoT powered platforms and solutions provide complete security protection for data flows. It also makes it easy to combine both detection and prevention of program defects and anomalies. In many cases, the process can provide fairly accurate estimates of success or failure, thereby eliminating trial and error. Replacing Special Software with Industrial IoT Platforms: Replacing all previous low-level communications programming with high-level data-centric interfaces is an essential aspect of adopting to the Internet of Things. This approach shortens application development time and eliminates unnecessary lines of code. A really exciting potential of IoT is to create bold new intelligent machines and vastly distributed systems. It offers controlled access to exactly the right data as well as extreme reliability, security, and scalability that is needed by real-world infrastructure. The future of IoT must integrate these proven applications into larger systems-of-systems that bring the power of cloud analytics and business intelligence to industrial systems. This is the core vision of the Industrial Internet of Things. It provides both the extreme capabilities required by intelligent machines and the needed integration to extend to cloud-based analytics and optimization.

Milton Keynes goes for LoRa IoT network

دسامبر 18, 2016
The network is another demonstration of MK:Smart’s desire to reach out to the local business community to help generate technology innovation around smart cities Milton Keynes is to deploy its own low power wide area (LoRa) network with gateways installed at four locations to provide coverage across central areas of the city. More than 30 businesses gathered at the University Campus Milton Keynes (UCMK) for the launch of the wireless sensor network designed to serve Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. “The launch of the LoRa network in Milton Keynes reinforces the city’s position as a global pioneer of smart cities,” said Rajinder Sharma, commercial manager, business engagement at UCMK, who chaired the event. “It’s another demonstration of not only how sensor networks have been deployed as part of the MK:Smart project, but also our desire to reach out to the local business community to help generate technology innovation around smart cities.” Powered by LoRaWan, a specification that targets the key requirements of the Internet of Things, the LoRa network is perfectly suited to smart applications since it enables seamless interoperability among smart ‘things’ without the need for complex local installations. The launch event also featured keynote presentations from Tracy Hopkins, chair of the LoRa Alliance, and Jon Pearce, head of Europe for Microchip with a welcome address from Gordon Mellor, campus director, UCMK. The LoRa network is supported by the LoRa Alliance, an international not-for-profit organisations whose members include IBM, Cisco, Orange and more.

Thuraya joins Internet of Things industry group

دسامبر 18, 2016
Thuraya joins Internet of Things industry group WASHINGTON — Mobile satellite services operator Thuraya announced Nov. 21 that it is joining an industry group that develops standards for the “Internet of Things” (IoT), a market that has the potential to generate significant demand for satellite services in the coming years. The Dubai-based company has become the second satellite operator to join the LoRa Alliance, a nonprofit that creates IoT standards. It follows Inmarsat, which became a member in February this year, helping the organization factor in the capabilities of satellite technology when creating new standards. IoT is a somewhat misunderstood term used to describe networks of connected sensors and devices. As a market, IoT devices have become a frequently cited new opportunity for both terrestrial and space-based telecommunications providers. Tellingly, communications company Ericsson reported in June that it now expects IoT devices to eclipse mobile phones as the largest category of connected devices in 2018. Satellite operators, many of which provide backhaul services for cellular data, are eyeing IoT as a potentially lucrative new source of revenue, though many are not yet sure how to enter this market. The LoRa Alliance believes satellite telecommunications companies can provide backhaul services for IoT devices using the organization’s LoRaWAN standard for connecting low power wide area (LPWA) networks. These networks are frequently used in rural or isolated areas often outside the reach of mobile network operators, thus creating an opportunity for satellite operators to fill the connectivity gap. Users of the LoRaWAN specification can now connect their devices over Thuraya’s network. “Standardization generates volume, and the methodology and approach of the LoRa Alliance will help us develop long-term opportunities on a significant scale,” said Thuraya product manager Marwan Joudeh in a Nov. 21 statement. Thuraya’s decision to join the organization comes as it is planning its next-generation satellite system, known as Futura. Thuraya is currently raising capital for the geostationary orbit system and expects IoT demand to shape its development. Since forming in March 2015, the LoRa Alliance has grown its ranks to more than 400 members. Aside from Thuraya and Inmarsat, other notable members that provide satellite services and technology include Swisscom, du, and Globalsat Worldcom Group. The LoRa Alliance’s LoRaWAN is one of many standards competing for dominance in the IoT market. Others include random phase multiple access (RPMA), ultra narrow band (UNB), and Sigfox, who is a customer of Eutelsat. Sigfox, based in Labege, France, closed a 150 million euro ($160 million) Series E funding round on Nov. 18 to fast-track the expansion of its network to soon reach global coverage.

Fancomkish and LoRa Alliance

دسامبر 14, 2016
It gives us a great pleasure to announce that FancomKish will be the new representative of LoRa Alliance in the Middle East. The LoRa Alliance™ is an open, non-profit association of members who believe that the Internet of Things era is now! Our members are collaborating together and sharing experience to drive the success of the LoRa protocol, LoRaWAN™, as the open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT LPWA connectivity. With a certification program to guarantee interoperability and the technical flexibility to address the multiple IoT applications be they static or mobile we believe that LoRaWAN can give all THINGS a global voice. As of 2016, the vision of the Internet of things has evolved due to a convergence of multiple technologies, including ubiquitous wireless communication, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, and embedded systems. This means that the traditional fields of embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, control systems, automation (including home and building automation), and others all contribute to enabling the Internet of things. The term “Internet of Things” was coined by Peter T. Lewis in a 1985 speech given at a U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) supported wireless session at the Congressional Black Caucus 15th Legislative Weekend Conference. In his speech he states that “The Internet of Things, or IoT, is the integration of people, processes and technology with connectable devices and sensors to enable remote monitoring, status, manipulation and evaluation of trends of such devices.”   In its original interpretation, one of the first consequences of implementing the Internet of things by equipping all objects in the world with minuscule identifying devices or machine-readable identifiers would be to transform daily life. For instance, instant and ceaseless inventory control would become ubiquitous. A person’s ability to interact with objects could be altered remotely based on immediate or present needs, in accordance with existing end-user agreements.  

IoT to Prompt Rapid Growth in Global Sensors Market – Study

دسامبر 10, 2016
The global sensors market is projected to generate $162.36 billion in 2019, with industrial control, smart cities and eHealth being top revenue contributors. That’s according to Frost & Sullivan’s “Global Sensor Outlook 2016.” Driven by the Internet of Things, sensors form the cornerstone of Industry/Manufacturing 4.0, the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. Sensors are becoming highly intelligent with analytical and decision-making capability at the edge, according to Frost & Sullivan. Sensors are experiencing large-scale deployment in diverse end-user applications across verticals in standalone, integrated, combined, embedded, and more recently wearables and ingestibles. Immediate investment focus will be on developing non-contact technologies, remote connectivity through IoT, 3D printing and improving 3D vision sensing. Other transformative changes involving sensors include: Increasing adoption of 3D sensors and their integration into monitoring systems; Silicon photonics: silicon chips with integrated optics and electronics; Biosensors: rapid detection devices to address gaps in health care and food safety Energy harvesters: micro-energy harvesting systems that generate electrical energy from solar, vibration and thermal energy; Intelligent vehicles: fully automated and driverless; Bulk acoustic wave and surface acoustic wave: enabling economical industrial and consumer applications; Infrastructure and sensor towers: completely automating building monitoring through new integrated sensor systems. “These trends impact everyone in the value chain and demand a shift in strategies to survive and succeed in the dynamic marketplace,” said Rajender Thusu, sensors and instrumentation industry principal with Frost & Sullivan. “For instance, monitoring and control using the IoT platform is driving wearable sensors that provide various physiological data and enable quantified self-movement. They provide mobility, connectivity and context awareness with each other and the rest of the world. This will transform health wellness through preventive care and see increasing penetration in other vertical markets, such as industrial, sports, security, firefighting, military and security.” Wireless sensor networks are the future of connectivity, he said. “Sensor technology will continue to advance in terms of natural user interface, ubiquitous computing and sensory tracking,” Thusu said. “By 2025, sensors will not only be intelligent and prognostic, but also autonomous, self-healing and failsafe, paving the way for Industrial IoT.”

Wearable Device Market in Dire Need of a Tune-Up

دسامبر 10, 2016
When it comes to connected devices, the wearables market has been sputtering lately. Just this week, Fitbit announced that it acquired assets of Pebble Technology that include key personnel and intellectual property related to software and firmware development — and excludes Pebble’s hardware products. Although the four-year-old startup reportedly sold over 2 million devices worldwide, the company was unable to continue operations as an independent company, as company founder Eric Migicovsky posted on Pebble’s website. On the other hand Fitbit, founded in 2007, is a leader in the connected health and fitness category, aiming to help people lead healthier, more active lives by empowering them with data, inspiration and guidance to reach their goals. The company is famous for designing products and experiences that track everyday health and fitness. Gartner recently noted a high abandonment rate for smartwatches (29%) and 30% for fitness trackers due to boredom, breakage or users not finding them useful. “Dropout from device usage is a serious problem for the industry,” said Angela McIntyre, research director at Gartner. “The abandonment rate is quite high relative to the usage rate. To offer a compelling enough value proposition, the uses for wearable devices need to be distinct from what smartphones typically provide. Wearables makers need to engage users with incentives and gamification.” According to the survey, the US is leading smartwatch usage at 12%, while the UK is at 9% and Australia at 7%. Usage is up from a similar 2015 consumer survey, which showed that 8% of US respondents and 5% in the UK used smartwatches. The survey also showed that the US is leading fitness tracker usage at 23%, followed by the UK at 15% and Australia at 19%. Usage has increased since the Gartner 2015 consumer survey, which showed that 17% of respondents in the US and 10% in the UK used fitness trackers. Most people with a fitness tracker wear it every day. For those who do not, 26% wear their fitness tracker at least several times each week. Just last month, rumors flew about Intel stepping back from its wearables business amid reports of layoffs. However, the company shot back standing by its commitment to the emerging wearable technology market.
