IoT For Industrial Automation

By Stonewall Engineering on Mar 2, 2022

The Internet of Things (IoT) is providing a major boost to the automation sector. Industrial automation firms that employ IoT solutions can benefit in several ways as it allows engineers to develop new technologies to tackle issues, improve processes (like in healthcare), and increase output.

The Internet of Things is the connection of inextricably identifiable electronic devices via data plumbing on the Internet, such as IP, cloud computing, and web services and healthcare services. It is fair to mention that the Internet of Things (IoT) has a significant impact on industrial automation, and it motivates us to utilize tablet computers, smartphones, virtualized systems, and cloud storage for data.

On the other hand, Industry 4.0 is the intersection of cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT includes smart sensors that give managers more accurate information on which they can base their decisions for growth in today's competitive environment.

The industrial automation sector has started to adopt IoT technologies at a much slower pace as compared to other sectors such as healthcare and retail. However, this is changing now, and industrial automation companies are realizing the benefits of IoT technologies.

Let us examine the different ways in how the Internet of Things (IoT) is affecting industrial automation:

How Amphibious Vehicles Benefit the Engineering and Mining Industry

By Stonewall Engineering on Nov 2, 2021

Traditional vehicles are tailored to specific uses and cannot generally cross exposed ground surfaces. On the other hand, amphibious vehicles, such as the Fat Truck, are designed to have many uses which include transportation across exposed ground surfaces.  

Due to their increased popularity, the demand for amphibious vehicles has skyrocketed over the last several years and is expected to continue growing in the coming decades.

Here are a few details on how amphibious vehicles benefit both the mining and engineering industries.

9 ways technology is impacting the civil engineering industry

By Stonewall Engineering on Sep 30, 2021

Civil engineering is an ever-changing industry. With advancements in technology, we've seen the civil engineering field evolve from working solely with concrete to now designing and building everything from bridges to buildings.

From 3D printing to automated machines (aka robots), civil engineers are no longer just sitting at a desk drawing on paper - they're running around a construction site using their brains and hands. 

Here are 10 ways that technology has impacted how civil engineers work today.

1) Using drones for surveying land

2) Designing structures with CAD software

3) Enabling remote sensing via cloud technologies 

4) Connecting devices in cities- Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled sensors

5) The use of Building Information Modeling (BMI)

6) The use of big data

7) The use and development of water conservation technology

8) Develop 3D printing solutions 

9) The use of digital marketing
