Reducing Road Traffic Accidents and Deaths
Around 20 deaths per year and hundreds of ‘lesser’ accidents are caused by driver inattention, including tiredness, in a global logistics service of 100,000 vehicles. The direct cost is around $5m USD, aside from the emotional impact on the families of those involved. A wearable ’collar‘ was identified that could be used to measure driver concentration / attention and warn when levels of inattention were problematic or critical.
Increasing First Time Fix Rate
Parts availability tracking for field service engineers from a physical engineer’s van, equipped with scanning technology, an Edge-based IoT server, GPS and an advanced mobile communication link to maximise the connection back to a central cloud service, where the analytics and cloud-native application were hosted.
Automating Inventory Identification
Store-wide prototype RFID deployment using Edge-based data servers to reduce network traffic to focus on critical business events for real-time visibility of stock and stock location to trigger automated replenishment and stock ordering.
Holistic Social Care Planning App
Software application that enables care planning within a care home community or a home setting, that can produce a service analysis to help care professionals to develop an ‘holistic’ approach to personal care for the future generational needs of those who need care provision. It is based on a ‘cognitive’ or learning-based model from observed behaviours and history of prior cases.
