USA Firmware engineers have experience working in the industrial space. Industry 4.0 demonstrates the importance of digital technology for The Internet of Things. Our headquarters located in the Northeast Ohio region is no coincidence. Cleveland is home to several Fortune 500 industrial firms, and USA Firmware is proud to have provided them with our managed design services.
IIoT Petrochemical Analytical Monitoring System
USA Firmware helped design a complete, highly sophisticated Petrochemical Analytical IIoT wireless sensor system for monitoring industrial fluid system properties such as flow rate, temperature, and pressure.
IIoT Tractor Trailer
Designing a complete solution intended to provide a common, simple sensor interface is one of our many engineering specialities. In this case, USA Firmare’s team engineered just such an instrument for a client’s tractor trailer used for transit and shipping. Wired protocols were used inside the trailer to connect sensors with a cellular connection to the cloud, Wi-Fi for lowest-cost depot connections, and Bluetooth for interactions with the truck driver. The system monitored locks, cargo temperature, vibration, tire pressure, brake temperature and about 30 other parameters.
IIoT Smart Bin System
Hospital systems use hundreds of thousands of storage bins to stock medical supplies and make them available where they are needed by caregivers. A manual Kanban system required workers to visit each stockroom regularly to determine which products needed to be replenished. Our client, which manufactures the storage bins, turned to USA Firmware for help in creating a patent-pending monitoring system that pushes alerts to the hospital system’s enterprise inventory application when a bin has been emptied. Because of the high volumes involved, USA Firmware designed this solution for an extremely low product cost.
