Unmanned weather stations play an essential role in the effort to analyze and predict the world's ever-changing weather patterns. The unmanned stations collect and store large amounts of weather data and then download the data at regular intervals to a back-end host for analysis and long-term storage. The computing device housed in the weather station must be robust enough to work continuously for long periods of time while exposed to a wide range of temperatures. It should also be able to collect readings from various sensors that use different data transmission protocols, and have the capability to store large amounts of data.
Providing machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless connectivity to deliver vital traffic information to local municipalities and their motorists to improve traffic safety.
Russia offers a unique environment for IoT connectivity compared to densely populated European countries, because of the sheer size of the Russian Federation and its sparsely-populated or empty areas where there is no GSM mobile network coverage – although these areas can still be home to industries such as mining, oil & gas production or logging. In addition, there is a specific requirement to store and process all data within Russian borders to comply with national data protection regulations.
When James Meringer’s commercial contracting business experienced a rapid increase in solar projects, he also saw an opportunity to extend the benefits of solar by using the bifacial solar panels he’d become familiar with in new ways. Bifacial solar panels enable sunlight from both sides of the panel, making it a more efficient harvest of solar power.
Seeing the panel’s power, James and his team set out to use the same technology for street lighting. Until now, solar street lights have served as utilitarian solutions that force designers to choose between form and function. The Mira Bella Energy team has changed that.
Securitas wanted to give new and existing customers a proposition that was unlike anything they had offered before, a security system that broke the traditional mould but took advantage of the monitoring infrastructure that was already in place, including the manned response capabilities and alarm receiving centres.
Widely used across many industries, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) have been scooting around factory floors for decades. Thanks to evolving technologies like sensors, wireless networks and automatic control technologies, their guidance methods and physical dimensions continue to evolve and now small lightweight trackless AGV are being rolled out.
An American AGV System Integrator (SI) was designing a Laser Guided Vehicle (LGV) for a material handling system in an automotive assembly plant. Since the plant’s existing AGV system used an expensive PLC-based control system there weren’t enough functions to meet the new control requirements, the company decided to upgrade and shift to a compact PC-based PAC control system ideal for the new compact vehicle design, capable of integrating with upper management systems using a single software application to replace the original two software applications.
Western Digital R&D teams continuously run testing cycles, as a part of the organization’s mission to deliver innovative products to a wide variety of customers. DevTest projects require setting up and customizing physical servers; these are not only resource intensive tasks, but also time-consuming and often result in a slow time-to-market. Scaling up and out adds another layer of complexity, especially given the difficulty of managing various hardware configurations.

The solution proposed by Synapt requires high-speed wireless network and a variety of sensors, including motion sensors, body-worn cameras, gun-lift sensors, etc.
These sensors are seamlessly integrated with Synapt’s IoT products, Gateway Enablement Framework, IoT Middleware Platform, Service Management Framework, and Data Analytics Framework, in order to deliver the sought benefits.
In addition, Synapt developed a mobile app targeting police officers that works with an integrated OBD II GPS device to provide the exact location of each officer on the mobile map.
The solution is tailor-made and vertical-specific to cater to four types of users.
Protocol Conversion and Front-end Data Processing
The data collected by a typical unmanned weather station includes temperature, rainfall and snow accumulation, air pressure, humidity, and ultraviolet intensity. One of the tasks that the UC-7420 unit must handle is protocol conversion, since there is no guarantee that the devices collecting the weather data all use the same protocol. In addition, the UC-7420 can be used to do preliminary data processing before downloading data to the central computer. MOXA's UC-7420 is ideally suited for these tasks, since the user can easily embed a C program that is custom written for the devices used at the station. If future changes involve adding or removing devices, the programmer simply needs to modify the C code, recompile it, and then download the executable program over the network to the UC-7420 unit.
Connecting to the Network and the Internet
In addition to being programmable, the UC-7420 also offers users an array of connection options. To begin with, data entering the serial ports from attached sensors can be processed and then forwarded through one or both of the dual Ethernet ports to the LAN. One of the serial ports can also be connected to a V.90 or GPRS modem for PPP connections, and a PCMCIA port is available for installing a wireless LAN card for 802.11b/g networks. By including multiple connection options in the UC-7420's design, user's gain the flexibility needed to connect from virtually anywhere. Combinations of connection types can also be used to provide redundancy. For example, if unavoidable network problems cause an interruption in service, the user can connect by modem.
CompactFlash Storage Space
One of the dilemmas faced when creating a "small" computer is how to provide users with adequate storage space. For unmanned applications, it is best if the storage device does not contain moving parts. Although hard drives may seem to last forever for day-to-day use, we cannot make this assumption for continuous use at remote locations. The UC-7420 overcomes this problem by providing a CompactFlash slot. If needed, flash memory cards with storage capacity of up to several gigabytes can be used to store data until it is convenient to transfer the data to a central computer.

Searching for an IoT communication solution that is easy to deploy, offers long -orange coverage and the lowest total cost of ownership, ERTH was quick to recognize the benefits of LoRaWAN, and chose to work with Actility, based on the company’s existing track record in powering over half of all the national scale LPWA networks deployed by operators globally. “The agreement signed between ER-Telecom Holding and Actility is an important step in building a federal IoT coverage”, says Andrey Kuzyaev, the President of ER-Telecom Holding.
Mira Bella Energy had a unique panel designed to be mounted to street lights. The bifacial solar panel is mounted vertically, instead of being mounted to the top of the light pole as it is traditionally. Vertically mounting the panel allows allows it to capture both day and evening sunlight. The 5-foot panels look like fins and are designed to be wind-tolerant. Each has a lithium-ion battery stack in that pole for night. The batteries are good for 3,000 charging cycles, or around 8 years of use. This means that lighting can be completely removed from the grid, or a hybrid approach can be used.
To make the solution as smart, efficient and scalable as possible, Mira Bella Energy created an intelligent, bifacial solar powered lighting system by putting Internet of Things technology to work. To do this, each street light panel is also equipped with Digi XBee RF modules, a X2/X4 gateway and a connection to Digi Device Cloud. The XBee collects and communicates information from the street light solar panel to the gateway, which sends the information to the cloud where it's accessible via a web dashboard.
“Our Santa Cruz solar street light product utilizes the Digi XBee module, a Digi gateway and Digi Device Cloud for control and communication. That’s what enables our product to participate in the Internet of Things,” said Mira Bella Founder James Meringer. “We used Digi products years ago with another company and always knew Digi would be one to watch for communications devices.”
The premise for the security system was that it should be extremely user friendly and accessible to a diverse target market. For this reason the dedicated gateway incorporates GPRS and broadband connectivity, making it possible for those without a fixed broadband connection to benefit from a monitored alarm.
The client had several requirements for this project. Not only did the new hardware have to be small enough and robust enough to survive in the harsh factory conditions, it was also essential that there wouldn’t be any breakdown in communication between the LGV and the control room.
To ensure this stability, the SI used industrial grade wireless devices with wider network coverage and higher power output. It was also required that any system provided to the SI would be able to support their bespoke version of Linux (Debian Wheezy X64).
Inside the LGV, an APAX-5580Control IPC with three modules (APAX-5490, APAX-5046, APAX-5040) was connected to the motion controller and safety relay. To wirelessly communicate to the control site and EKI-5525 and EKI-6331AN were connected to the APAX-5580. An IDS-3110 touchscreen monitor was attached to the exterior of the LGV.
The APAX-5580 combines the capabilities of PLC and PC but also is a PC-based open control platform to provide industrial computing performance and integrate a variety of I/O modules with ease. Featuring a fanless, low power, ultra-compact and cable-free connection makes it be particularly suitable for the AGV automation control applications which require high stability in limited space. To protect the operating system and its data, the APAX-5580 also includes an industrial-grade mSATA SSD with excellent anti-shock and anti-vibration properties. In the event of system problem the PAC also includes a SD card one key recovery function which lets users quickly return the system to the default factory settings. It’s also an application ready platform for embedded applications. Regardless of what the customers’ applications require, users can fully utilize itsrich I/O interfaces to connect a wide range of peripheral devices such as digital/analog signals, Ethernet network, computer monitor, memory card, etc. Plus, it can support multiple operating systems and drivers to shorten the development time of System Integrators.
To communicate with the control station the LGV also includes a small EKI-5525 5-port Fast Ethernet ProView Switch and an EKI-6331AN IEEE 802.11 a/n Wi-Fi AP/CPE wireless module. For users to help communicate directly with the LGV an IDS-3110 10.4” industrial-grade TFT LCD touch screen. By adopting ultra-thin and non-frame design, the monitor perfectly fits with the compact AGV embedded applications.
In the Control Site, an EKI-7710E Managed switch is responsible for sending signals to EKI-6311’s spread throughout the site. The EKI-7710 is an All-in-One managed redundant switch not only provides network redundancy in the car assembly factory but also has high output power for the reliable coverage and data throughput and 2x2 MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) to optimize data transmission, as well as supporting wide temperature range (-20~70°C) with IP55 protection.
