Industrial Wireless Networks & the Mobile User

By |December 23rd, 2020|Applications|Comments Off on Industrial Wireless Networks & the Mobile User

Factory floors provide a wealth of information around the clock – the number of components manufactured at an auto plant, the amount of dough mixed at an industrial bakery, the status of every piece of equipment on the floor. Traditionally, all this information is channeled via computer systems to one fixed location in an operations office. But manufacturers are increasingly seeing value in a mobile system that puts the collected information at the fingertips of workers and maintenance staff on the floor, often the people who need to see the data the most. By putting operators in control of the information, real-time, mobile interfaces can increase productivity and boost operator safety. [...]
