It’s an early morning in April. Vincent arrives at the construction site his usual time. After a quick coffee his colleagues and him are out working. Vincent looks around. The site is a typical construction site. The foundations of a few buildings have appeared and more will come. He lowers his eyes and looks around his working station. Someone has moved the large circle saw. A feeling of annoyance is starting to spread in his body. He asks Frank and walks around and looks in the most obvious places… but it isn’t there. It’s hard to find stuff around all the equipment and building material. When he finally finds it under some trash he’s wasted half an hour. He also notices it looks a little bit worn out. Maybe the one who used it ran it too hard?  

SERVICE VEHICLES

Make sure equipment is not lost or forgotten by knowing if your things are in the service vehicle or not. This leads to increased efficiency and useful aggregated data.

It’s a Friday afternoon. Vincent looks at his wrist watch, thinking about his son. Just one more job before he can leave for the weekend. It should be a quick one. He approaches his service car carrying the necessary equipment from the company inventory. After putting it in the back he is off. It’s a 20 minute drive but a day like this it felt like 5. He turns the engine off and opens his notebook. He curses to himself. He forgot the ladder! Now he must drive back and forth to the inventory again and he will be late. Again. Almost an hour is wasted.  

INDUSTRIAL

Increase efficiency in production by keeping track of essential equipment and parts of production. It leads to less downtime and possible further improvements due to gathered data. 

TRAINS

Use sensors to reduce train downtime and start with preventive maintenance.

It’s an autumn evening. The traffic is busy. Vincent glances at his monitors. At least the traffic is running smoothly. Late trains today would mess up the beautiful flow. Vincent likes a beautiful flow on his monitors. It feels comforting. He takes a zip of his coffee and notices a blinking light. A train is slowing down. Something must be wrong. He calls the train and gets the bad news. An error with the breaks is forcing them to stop and change train. Vincent gets to work. He has done this many times before. He knows what to do but it will take time and the passengers must change to replacement buses. Bad for everyone. If only they could know how the trains were doing and preemptively service them?

MINING

Keep workers safe and increase efficiency in mines by keeping track of things inside and outside the mine.

It’s around lunchtime in the mine when he hears the sound of the alarm. Vincent looks at his monitors. He’s not sure whether it’s a false alarm or not. The smoke alarm in sector 13 is going off. He glances at the monitors again and calls the supervisor. They already started to evacuate the mine. That’s good but it’s hard to know if everyone is really up and where the equipment is. Vincent would have benefited from a better overview.

BOATS

Keep things and people safe on the boat with a man over board system.

It’s a dark night outside the coast of Miami. Vincent is getting the yacht ready for the next group of people together with his crew. A boat like this must be perfect when arriving to the port. It’s hard work and sometimes the wind can make it difficult. One of the crew members is scrubbing the outer deck when a large wave hits the side of the yacht. Vincent freezes. Sam is gone!
