Automotive is much wider sector than just cars. It is transportation, industrial, agricultural, machinery; it is movement and tracking that movement. Extremely, powerful resources are available in the cloud to process a whole range of data and uses this data as a basis for making fully automatic decisions.
Electronic products built into consumer products such as home appliances, home entertainment systems, lighting and alarm systems will all necessarily need to be of the IoT environment. More and more electronic devices have been built into them so that manufacturers can gain information on how they are used, when they break down etc. EBV’s vertical segment has many year’s expertise on the requirements and products required in this sector.
IoT in the field of Healthcare has all sorts of exciting possibilities. Smart Sensor and Smart connectivity technology means that devices are able to collect, record and analyse data that was not previously available. This means being able to collect patient data over time and using it to help enable preventive care, allow prompt diagnosis of acute complications and promote understanding of how a therapy is helping improve a patient’s well-being.
The IoT is transforming industry and how humans and machines work through new interactions.
Industries are becoming more efficient and flexible which means increased production and therefore lower costs. Machinery, equipment and production processes are all being connected to give real-time information so that easy interaction can take place where necessary. EBV has a team dedicated to the Industrial sector whose expertise and product knowledge help clients realise their end products both now and for the future.
Smart cities & smart grid
Transportation, financial, energy and buildings will all come together and create a network of connected devices in the Smart City. Millions of sensors will be responsible for the majority of signals which will be sending information via secure networks. A Smart City is one that is able to use digitalisation and communications to make networks and services efficient helping to create a sustainable environment. An environment that will be interconnected, secure and with minimal waste and sustainable energy management. EBV’s product range includes all the semiconductors required for a Smart City – from sensor modules and microcontrollers to communication modules - and is continually advancing with new products.
