The Industrialist: Trends & Innovations - Mar 2022

  1. 1. Innovate Trends and innovations that matter
  2. 2. Know more about the latest announcements impacting industry, from autonomous tractors that plant and harvest, to battery-as-a-service financing.
  3. 3. Industrial is a front runner in combining human ingenuity with technology and innovation. Thomas Rinn Managing Director, Global Industrial Sector Lead, Accenture
  4. 4. Schneider Electric acquires UK start-up Zeigo Schneider Electric has acquired a renewable energy platform to expand its portfolio of digital energy and resource management solutions and boost its environmental advisory services. Zeigo, which operates in the US, Europe, Australia and Brazil, connects more than 100 renewable energy developers and suppliers and harnesses machine learning to make market predictions. The start-up has setup a power purchase agreement (PPA) tender process that enables companies with more than 5 GWh of power consumption to secure solar or wind-generated electricity. To date, it has supported more than 13,000 megawatts of corporate PPAs since 2014. The demand for PPAs is set to grow as companies pursue decarbonization targets, and Schneider is now positioned to capitalize on that growth while advancing its own digital energy transformation ambitions. 01
  5. 5. Johnson Controls buys edge AI software FogHorn Johnson Controls has acquired FogHorn, the company behind industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that harness edge artificial intelligence. FogHorn’s technology will bolster Johnson Controls’ own OpenBlue solution and help bring secure, actionable insights to the sustainable, autonomous buildings of the future. As more and more sensors are fitted into buildings, companies are being overwhelmed by the amount of data being generated. Together, Johnson Controls and FogHorn aim to harness that data and apply intelligence at the edge to help tackle decarbonization, sustainability, energy efficiency, indoor air quality and smart security challenges for buildings. 02
  6. 6. DEKRA DIGITAL’s cloud-based app analyzes elevators DEKRA has launched an iOS and Android app that analyzes the condition of any elevator in minutes. Aimed at improving safety, LIFT Check requires users to place their smartphone on an elevator floor to take detailed measurements in just one ride. The app measures vibrations, noise, speed, and rail running to make calculations on the elevator’s quality in minutes. Developed with TK Elevator, engineers took 500 measurements across four different continents to build the app, before testing it in Germany’s Rottweil elevator test tower. LIFT Check is now being rolled out globally among TK Elevator test engineers. 03
  7. 7. ASI Mining and Epiroc Drilling partner ASI Mining has partnered with Epiroc Drilling Solutions to expand its Mobius(R) autonomy platform to include drills. The platform already had functionality for haulage and blasting, and enables multi-vehicle command, control, and monitoring to increase site safety and productivity. The new drills application will complement the system and enable companies to translate drill data into actionable insights. For example, the platform can combine drill plans with live drill data to map usage and create productivity reports that inform decision- making. The solution can also connect autonomous drills with other autonomous operations, such as haulage and operator- controlled vehicles, all within one, streamlined ecosystem. 04
  8. 8. Konecranes launches monthly battery subscription Konecranes has launched a Battery-as-a-Service (BaaS) business to help customers finance their use of the E-VER range of Li-Ion powered electric forklift trucks. Through this service, users can buy E-VER electric heavy forklifts without a battery, instead choosing to access the chargeable, upgradable and remotely monitorable Li-ion battery in a way that works for their business. For example, the battery can be secured for a monthly fee based on real-time usage. The battery can also be monitored via the Konecranes customer portal. For businesses that have historically faced big upfront costs for batteries that degrade over time and lose resale value, the new offering provides a welcome solution. 05
  9. 9. Autonomous tractor drives, plants and harvests John Deere has unveiled a self-driving tractor that can be controlled from a farmer’s smartphone. The technology is being trialed in the company’s 8 series tractor, which can be configured to plant seeds, spray nutrients and harvest crops to inch-level accuracy. The accompanying app can be used by farmers to pause operations, find out how much fuel is in the tractor, how long it’s been running or how much time it has spent idle. They can even inspect images of obstacles recorded by the tractor’s 12 stereo cameras. The technology, announced at CES 2022, will be available to buy at the end of the year. It significantly advances the field of precision agriculture and addresses growing concerns around worker shortages. 06
  10. 10. Volkswagen and Bosch automation collaboration Cariad, a Volkswagen software subsidiary, has partnered with Bosch to develop automation software for Volkswagen cars. The two companies will use Volkswagen vehicle data to develop Level 2 autonomous software (enabling temporary hands-free driving in cities, rural areas and on motorway) to be used in cars by 2023. They also plan to develop the higher Level 3 software, which operates all driving functions when the vehicle is on the motorway. Bosch will eventually be able to use the technology outside of the partnership. Volkswagen has already invested $2.6 billion in self-driving start-up Argo AI, as it races to compete with the likes of Tesla, and has committed to spending $101 billion on electric vehicle and software development over the next five years. 07
  11. 11. Mobileye launches ‘super-computer’ car chip Mobileye has developed EyeQ Ultra, a powerful, efficient chip designed to power fully autonomous vehicles. The company claims the chip will be able to run 176 trillion operations per second, ensuring it can handle all processes necessary to enable fully autonomous Level 4 driving, with no need for human intervention. EyeQ Ultra will also achieve this without the high levels of computing power consumption and costs usually associated with such powerful systems. The chip could be used to power all kinds of self-driving vehicles in the future, and works with Mobileye’s True Redundancy vision sensing technology and its crowdsourced Road Experience Management (REM) mapping technology. The chip is expected to hit full, automotive-ready production by 2025. 08
