The rapid uptake of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), in other words biometric monitoring, offers a lot of possibilities for healthcare professionals, athletes and people with physical demanding professions. In the US, 60 percent of the healthcare organizations are using IoMT devices to measure blood pressure, brain activity and body temperature. Now biometric sensors are being applied to save lives, it is time for organizations to explore the possibilities. IoT expert Evalan underscores this in her newest whitepaper ‘Impacting health, safety and performance with IoT-based biometrics’.
Evalan contributed to the development of a state-of-the-art Head Office for Unilever in the US. The office, based in Englewood Cliffs, represents the workplace of the future, with open and shared spaces connected by sensors giving insight into the use of each floor. The Head Office was opened in 2018. Evalan manages the data and will add new functions to the sensor-system.
Who doesn’t recognize the experience of looking for a workspace to work, study or to have a meeting with someone, but all of the seats are taken? It doesn’t matter how early you arrive at the office building, most of the workspaces are occupied, which results in an endless search for a desk or meeting room somewhere else. The question remains; will there be a free workspace in another building? Evalan and Arend van de Stadt, innovator in vision systems, developed an IoT-solution to address this problem: SmartEagle.
Danfoss recently introduced the NovoCon digital actuator, designed for hydronic balancing and control. This actuator fits Danfoss’ AB-CM valve. This combination is an accurate and cost-effective system of flow measurement and flow control, which aligns with the control infrastructure that is currently commonly used in buildings.
To enhance the competitive advantages of the NovoCon actuator for use in buildings, Evalan is creating Bluetooth Connectivity (“BLE”) for the actuator. Adding BLE to the actuator will enable Danfoss to achieve several significant advantages, including (A) direct connectivity with innovations in Smart Building technology, (B) the ability to lower the overall costs of building control systems by eliminating cables and some control equipment, (C) the ability to create stand-alone room control systems that do not require use of third party equipment and (D) the ability to become fully integrated into Evalan’s bGrid™ solution which will make NovoCon the actuator of choice for new bGrid projects.
Through the BLE communication channel the NovoCon actuator can receive set-points, calibration instructions, configuration settings and other information, and can return information about operational conditions. Some of this information is exchanged periodically, but some changes are communicated instantaneously.
Asking why you should embrace smart machine technology now is like going back five or so years and asking whether it really makes sense to get a smart phone. Like most industry observers, at Evalan we are convinced reality will soon overtake whatever hesitations there may be about the reshaping of industry by IoT. Companies […]
Smart Industry en Internet of Things (IoT) oplossingen hebben de afgelopen jaren veel buzz veroorzaakt. Marktdeskundigen voorspellen een substantiële groei en een belangrijke hervorming van de industrie als gevolg hiervan. In deze White Paper kunt u lezen waar smart machines en IoT-oplossingen toe in staat zijn en hoe uw bedrijf kan profiteren van het Internet of Things.
Last week, Evalan completed the new smart building solution, bGrid™, in an OVG Real Estate building.
Evalan has joint the OneLogistics Program. This program is the Dutch proposal for managing the Supply Chain Support System for the European Operations of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter airplane.
Evalan has received a patent for technology that can deliver a significant reduction in commissioning time of new buildings.
