Presentation Summary

Real time remote monitoring based on IIoT offers industry the opportunity to improve uptime and reduce failure rates of valuable assets. It also enables cost-effective condition-based maintenance to be introduced. Battery operated wireless sensors are easy to deploy for monitoring but must make effective use of communication links and have acceptable power consumption. Processing raw data on the sensor node using enables low-power, narrow band communication links to be used and ensures that power and computational resource usage is optimised.
