Axians + Actemium : When IT Projects meet industrial environments
Virtual reality and augmented reality have not yet seen widespread uptake in the industrial sector. Although applications are being developed, there are still obstacles to be removed.
IoT Business Case : Sandvik Intelligent tubes
Sandvik SMT are specialists in tubes and their materials. These tubes are used in extreme environments and much can be won if measured data could be retrieved from the usage of the tubes. SMT has a patent on placing sensors within the walls of the tubes. These sensors can measure temperature, strain, vibrations and such. Axians has been helping Sandvik in the development by bring the data from the sensors to the cloud. Axians has also developed the cloud solutions and created a service portfolio platform with IoT operations based on microServiceBus.
