In line with our vision to offer state-of-the-art expertise to promote electronics innovation, August Electronics recognizes the tremendous potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) industry and the need for manufacturing IoT capable devices.
Connected devices are not a novelty in electronics. It is merely a consumer application of systems that exist in the industrial setting. Now, it is seeing greater application in consumer-oriented Human Machine Interface (HMI) environments that blend rich data and real-time processing.
The enhanced connectivity of Internet-enabled devices is rapidly transforming the landscape by equipping objects with minuscule identifying devices or machine-readable identifiers. Wearable devices for fitness and health monitoring or for assisted living as well as home automation appliances and control systems are some of the applications of IoT. This industry is evolving at breakneck speed and in the process opening a new realm of opportunity and challenge for industrial OEM’s with the unification of consumers, enhanced data security, and intelligent systems.
This industry includes machine-to-machine (M2M) communication devices, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) / industrial control systems (ICS) platforms, infrastructure/asset performance monitoring and surveillance systems, process automation and advanced data analytics.
