IoT technologies make it possible to read license plate numbers and container codes faster and more accurately. In addition, IoT solutions can capture and analyze data using facial and vehicle recognition imaging.
FREMONT, CA: According to one report, the number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices will surpass 1.5 billion in 2022, and the number of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connections will surpass 3.5 billion by 2023. An ever-increasing number of IoT applications is fueled by the exponential growth of embedded computers and IoT connections. Traffic engineering, oil and gas exploration, data logging, and other industrial sectors may benefit from the use of IoT devices. However, there are obstacles to be solved.
The Challenges of Border Security and Customs Officers
When it comes to border security and customs, there are many obstacles to overcome. Suspicious persons can be identified, historical car data can be accessed, identification and personal records of vehicle drivers can be integrated, and license plate details can be quickly located, to name a few. However, these are merely difficulties for border officers. Traditional police forces and toll booths are not immune to these security threats.
[vendor_logo_first]What can be done? For one thing, IoT technologies make it possible to read license plate numbers and container codes faster and more accurately. In addition, IoT solutions can capture and analyze data using facial and vehicle recognition imaging. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology can be used to monitor speed, volume, and weather conditions.
Oil and Gas Exploration Issues
Exploration for oil and gas is a high-stakes company involving harsh environmental conditions, highly flammable chemicals, and costly machinery. The position and equipment costs are the two most important obstacles in this industry. The two are inextricably related. Furthermore, oil fields are usually located in a sandy, dusty desert or along a gulf. Both environments can be hazardous to equipment. IoT solutions are required to collect data on equipment to track its condition and plan maintenance to avoid unexpected breakdowns.
SBCs (Session Border Controllers) that are sufficiently rugged and capable of maintaining consistent performance in harsh environments while requiring little maintenance is needed for industrial applications of rugged computers. To allow interoperability, SBCs must also be able to extend or integrate with other systems. Finally, the IoT solution must guard against cyberattacks and keep high-value equipment secure.
