IIoT & Digital Solution

IIoT & Digital Solution

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) refers to a network of embedded sensors, software and other technologies generating data streams in an industrial environment. This network records, monitors and adjusts each interaction between components.

IIoT Key Components

Broadly speaking, the three core components of IIoT in Smart Manufacturing are:

 Edge Devices

 Data Visualization Platform

 Management & Analysis Platform

IIoT Key Components

Edge Devices

Forming the foundation for IIoT, edge devices serve two main functions. Passive edge devices (e.g. sensors) collect and generate data for the end-user, and active edge devices (e.g. microcontrollers) allow the end-user to remotely interact with and exert influence over the network. Through high speed scanners installed along the production line, we can quickly track and trace products and materials. Furthermore, smart sensors with computer vision capabilities can realize defect detection and material classification. The end-user can also make use of other various equipment to control and manage the manufacturing line.

Data Visualization Platform

The next core component to realize Smart Manufacturing will be the IoT data platform that aggregates and visualizes data captured from edge devices. Through these data platforms, the user would be able to manage a wide range of data streams, as well as monitor both equipment status and production output. The aggregated data can be represented as numerical readouts and charts or as complex as a real-time digital model of the physical facility.

Management and Analysis Platform

Lastly, with platform-as-a-service (PaaS) applications that capture and analyze data from the edge devices in the IIoT network, the “Smart” component of Smart Manufacturing can be properly realized. This management and analysis platform uses a variety of models and algorithms as appropriate to allow the end-user proactively prevent equipment breakdown, perform predictive and preventive maintenance as well as to identify anomalies in the system. Beyond the production line, these analyses can also guide their planning towards both the upstream and downstream supply chains through demand and production forecasting.

SmartMore participated in Revive Tech Asia 2022 held in Hong Kong, during August 24-25, presenting the smart industrial platform (SMore ViMo 2.0), smart code scanner series (SMore VS1000), and use cases of quality control.

.

Revive Tech Asia is a 2-day Technology Conference & Exhibition that gathers the most influential minds to celebrate innovations and unleash the power of tech transformation in real world. As the gold partner of Revive Tech Asia, SmartMore aims to bring customers a new era of smart economics. Focusing on smart manufacturing and digital innovation, SmartMore’s industrial solutions and digital intelligent services have served more than 100 industrial leaders from all over the world.

.

Mr. Algernon Yau, JP, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of the HKSAR, visited SmartMore’s booth before giving opening remarks. Miss Mercy Liu, Head of Global Industrial Business and Ms. Cindy Chan, Head of Public Affairs, introduced the Smart code scanner VS1000’s use case. It represents the high level of stability and flexibility under challenging industrial conditions.

.

On the fireside chat titled “Re-industrialisation is calling”, Miss Mercy Liu shared insights on how “re-industrialisation” incorporates innovative technologies of smart production to streamline the manufacturing process. The government sees it as the key to Hong Kong’s race for productivity and growth in the digital era. By driving intelligent upgrading and transformation, SmartMore will continue to contribute to sustainable development and reshape the understanding of manufacturing.

Professor Jia Jiaya, Founder and Chairman of SmartMore, received the InnoStars Award from Mr. John Lee, Chief Executive of the HKSAR, on 29 July, 2022.

 

The Chief Executive congratulated Professor Jia and the other eight awardees. He stressed that the InnoStars Award 2021 is meaningful and well-deserved, which sets a good example for Hong Kong’s younger generation. The awardees have been outstanding and exemplary in multiple industries.

 

Organised by Our Hong Kong Foundation, the InnoStars Award aims to recognise Hong Kong leaders who innovate their way to excellence in science and technology, business model, social innovation, or culture and creativity by pushing beyond traditional boundaries and bringing innovative products and services to the Mainland and overseas. The Award serves to inspire creativity and innovation, promote entrepreneurship, foster economic diversification, and showcase Hong Kong people’s innovative talent.

 

As an expert in computer vision and computational imaging, Professor Jia has gained worldwide recognition for his academic achievements. With his eyes set on the enormous market potential of smart manufacturing, he founded SmartMore in November 2019.

 

Professor Jia’s goal is to transfer more than 20 years of research outcome into products and services; thereby, accelerating the progress of smart manufacturing in China and the world. To this end, he is leading the SmartMore team to encourage manufacturers and the entire manufacturing industry to actively implement advanced smart applications and products.

 

Professor Jia believes that Hong Kong’s “Re-industialisation” is facing an historical opportunity. With deep integration of information technology and manufacturing technology, high manpower cost will no longer be a problem. Young people in Hong Kong can find more innovation and technology positions.

 

A new wave of the global industrial revolution is about to begin. SmartMore will continue to contribute to the re-industrialisation process, social and economic development of Hong Kong to the best of our ability.

 

As Professor Jia said at the Presentation Ceremony, “Innovation is not just a flash of inspiration, but a process of continuous creation and evolution.”

SmartMore Showcased Quality Control Solution at Manufacturing Expo to Solve the Last-Mile Problem

SmartMore participated in Manufacturing Expo held in Birmingham, UK, during 8-9 June 2022, where its smart industrial platform (SMore ViMo2.0), barcode scanner series (SMore VS1000), and quality control solution were presented.

Manufacturing Expo is an exhibition for global manufacturing professionals to maintain a competitive edge by discovering the latest innovations, technologies, and solutions. SmartMore not only presented the smart products, such as SMore Industrial Platfrom and SMore Code Scanner VS1000, but also attended a workshop to demonstrate the smart solution of quality control.

How SmartMore’s solution solves the last-mile problem?

  • Deep learning, instead of the traditional machine vision

When it comes to counting items, sorting items out, detecting defects, etc., the traditional machine vision frequently applies. But this traditional approach is beneficial only in a straightforward manner.

The limitations of traditional machine vision are: What if the defects come in more than one type? Or what if the production line change from one type of product in the morning, to another type of product in the afternoon. That means manufacturers need to apply new models to any changes, costing more money and time.

On the contrary, deep learning models are more flexible, because such models, just like human brains, can learn patterns and features on their own. This enables manufacturers to apply deep learning models from one product to another, and from one type of defect to many other types of defects.

  • Algorithms specialized for manufacturing industry

SmartMore’s quality control solution is built on its smart industrial platform (SMore ViMo) with four major algorithms: detectionclassificationsegmentation, and OCR.

Such algorithms can help manufacturers detect a multitude of defects precisely, classify between OK/NG products, capture the region of interest for better inspection, and recognize optical characters under harsh conditions.

  • Flexible deployment

The traditional machine vision approach usually features a long cycle. The operator usually needs two days to collect, analyze, and label data, and then algorithm engineers also need two days to train models. Next, software engineers will release the models in the format of SDK, which may take 7-14 days.

SmartMore’s solution indicates a shorter cycle instead. After the operator collects data, the whole process of data labeling, model training, and model release can be completed within one single day.

Traditional machine vision approach VS SmartMore’s solution:

SmartMore will also attend another two exhibitions of manufacturing held in Europe and Malaysia, which are automatica Munich 2022 (21-24 June) and METALTECH & AUTOMEX 2022 (22-25 June).
