Using Insight-driven IoT Services
- 分析与建模 - 大数据分析
美国有 500 万个地面游泳池，仅加利福尼亚就有 150 万个。这些泳池所有者每月在电费上浪费 30-90 美元，因为他们的泳池水泵运行时间过长，而且有时公用事业费率很高。 PoolEnergy 团队一直与 SDG&E、CPUC、EPA 和 DOE 合作，为泳池所有者提供智能能源管理系统。该系统结合了能源效率和需求响应服务，可为业主节省资金，并在能源紧急情况下创建可持续的智能电网资源。
PoolEnergy LLC 是一家为住宅泳池环境提供物联网资源的管理公司，提供智能能源效率。 PoolResponse 是 PoolEnergy 的营销服务品牌。
PoolEnergy 致力于通过降低能源成本并为经过认证的泳池经销商和消费者提供自动监控系统来彻底改变住宅泳池行业。他们创建了“PoolResponse”，这是一项使用可连接到任何泳池泵的联网控制器的服务。控制器使用与天气、温度、水池大小、公用事业费率和其他变量相关的自定义算法进行远程监控。该系统旨在最大限度地提高泵的效率，同时保持游泳池的清洁和健康。泳池所有者和经过认证的 PoolResponse 经销商都可以访问自定义仪表板，以实时查看每个连接的泵的情况。 ThingLogix 为 PoolResponse 系统提供洞察驱动的物联网服务，以启动和运行他们的产品。使用我们的专有框架，我们在 AWS 上为 PoolEnergy 客户构建了一个门户和平台服务，使用可扩展到数百万的实时泵“负载”（能量读数）。认证经销商现在可以提供更好的服务，消费者可以将他们的房产带到网上直接省钱——而不是通过回扣。
Energy Saving & Power Monitoring System
Recently a university in Taiwan was experiencing dramatic power usage increases due to its growing number of campus buildings and students. Aiming to analyze their power consumption and increase their power efficiency across 52 buildings, the university wanted to build a power management system utilizing web-based hardware and software. With these goals in mind, they contacted Advantech to help them develop their system and provide them with the means to save energy in the years to come.
IoT System for Tunnel Construction
The Zenitaka Corporation ('Zenitaka') has two major business areas: its architectural business focuses on structures such as government buildings, office buildings, and commercial facilities, while its civil engineering business is targeted at structures such as tunnels, bridges and dams. Within these areas, there presented two issues that have always persisted in regard to the construction of mountain tunnels. These issues are 'improving safety" and "reducing energy consumption". Mountain tunnels construction requires a massive amount of electricity. This is because there are many kinds of electrical equipment being used day and night, including construction machinery, construction lighting, and ventilating fan. Despite this, the amount of power consumption is generally not tightly managed. In many cases, the exact amount of power consumption is only ascertained when the bill from the power company becomes available. Sometimes, corporations install demand-monitoring equipment to help curb the maximum power demanded. However, even in these cases, the devices only allow the total volume of power consumption to be ascertained, or they may issue warnings to prevent the contracted volume of power from being exceeded. In order to tackle the issue of reducing power consumption, it was first necessary to obtain an accurate breakdown of how much power was being used in each particular area. In other words, we needed to be able to visualize the amount of power being consumed. Safety, was also not being managed very rigorously. Even now, tunnel construction sites often use a 'name label' system for managing entry into the work site. Specifically, red labels with white reverse sides that bear the workers' names on both sides are displayed at the tunnel work site entrance. The workers themselves then flip the name label to the appropriate side when entering or exiting from the work site to indicate whether or not they are working inside the tunnel at any given time. If a worker forgets to flip his or her name label when entering or exiting from the tunnel, management cannot be performed effectively. In order to tackle the challenges mentioned above, Zenitaka decided to build a system that could improve the safety of tunnel construction as well as reduce the amount of power consumed. In other words, this new system would facilitate a clear picture of which workers were working in each location at the mountain tunnel construction site, as well as which processes were being carried out at those respective locations at any given time. The system would maintain the safety of all workers while also carefully controlling the electrical equipment to reduce unnecessary power consumption. Having decided on the concept, our next concern was whether there existed any kind of robust hardware that would not break down at the construction work site, that could move freely in response to changes in the working environment, and that could accurately detect workers and vehicles using radio frequency identification (RFID). Given that this system would involve many components that were new to Zenitaka, we decided to enlist the cooperation of E.I.Sol Co., Ltd. ('E.I.Sol') as our joint development partner, as they had provided us with a highly practical proposal.
Intelligent Building Automation System and Energy Saving Solution
One of the most difficult problems facing the world is conserving energy in buildings. However, it is not easy to have a cost-effective solution to reduce energy usage in a building. One solution for saving energy is to implement an intelligent building automation system (BAS) which can be controlled according to its schedule. In Indonesia a large university with a five floor building and 22 classrooms wanted to save the amount of energy being used.
Powering Smart Home Automation solutions with IoT for Energy conservation

Energy Management System at Sugar Industry
The company wanted to use the information from the system to claim under the renewable energy certificate scheme. The benefit to the company under the renewable energy certificates is Rs 75 million a year. To enable the above, an end-to-end solution for load monitoring, consumption monitoring, online data monitoring, automatic meter data acquisition which can be exported to SAP and other applications is required.
Coca Cola Swaziland Conco Case Study
Coco Cola Swaziland, South Africa would like to find a solution that would enable the following results: - Reduce energy consumption by 20% in one year. - Formulate a series of strategic initiatives that would enlist the commitment of corporate management and create employee awareness while helping meet departmental targets and investing in tools that assist with energy management. - Formulate a series of tactical initiatives that would optimize energy usage on the shop floor. These would include charging forklifts and running cold rooms only during off-peak periods, running the dust extractors only during working hours and basing lights and air-conditioning on someone’s presence. - Increase visibility into the factory and other processes. - Enable limited, non-intrusive control functions for certain processes.
