ICP DAS, Exosite Partner to Introduce ExoWISE

TAIPEI, Taiwan, Jan 20, 2022 – ICP DAS, a leading manufacturer of industrial automation equipment, is pleased to announce the new ExoWISE solution. The creation of ExoWISE is the result of a new partnership with Exosite, an enterprise software company and a leading provider in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform market. The new solution leverages Exosite’s ExoSense remote condition monitoring application and Murano IIoT platform running on AWS infrastructure with a native device connection from the ICP DAS WISE-5231 gateway. Exosite’s Murano platform provides excellent management over cloud security for encryption and authorization.

As long as customers use the standard Modbus protocol, ICP DAS’s IIoT edge gateway WISE-5231 can connect with the ExoWISE solution. Once connected, WISE-5231 can immediately begin sending data to the cloud platform for remote control and monitoring in various industrial applications, enabling users to view dashboards with real-time data and equipment status, as well as receive notifications, manage user access, and generate reports. The primary function of WISE-5231 is to connect edge devices with the Internet and act as a bridge between devices and the cloud. These features are a big differentiator when compared with standard SCADA systems.

Remote monitoring is an effective system for optimizing production in various industries. It also helps reduce equipment downtime and improve quality. However, developing such a system can be challenging. Because of this, ICP DAS has leveraged Exosite’s technologies to provide customers with an end-to-end IoT solution: ExoWISE. ICP DAS has chosen to partner with Exosite because of its  established and trusted brand in the IIoT market, providing end-to-end solutions, an enterprise software platform, and an extensive range of tools to make it easier to configure and deploy IoT applications.

Connection to the ExoWISE solution is easy and does not require coding, eliminating the need for a software development team, large investments, or long development time. In response to the rapid development of IIoT technologies, ICP DAS is pleased to provide our customers with an easy-to-use solution to expand their IT infrastructure and enable OT data connectivity within their industrial applications. ExoWISE is already available to their clients around the world. ExoWISE looks forward to providing customers with the latest solutions that combine IIoT, cloud, and edge technologies.

Zyter Introduces Smart Agriculture

ROCKVILLE, MD, Jan 4, 2022 – Zyter, Inc., a leading digital health and IoT-enablement platform, announced today the introduction of Zyter Smart Agriculture, the latest Internet of Things (IoT) solution running on the Zyter SmartSpaces platform. With data captured by IoT sensors and analyzed with Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, Zyter’s solution gives farmers and agronomists a comprehensive virtual view of the farm ecosystem with emphasis on automating and improving standard crop management practices to achieve more sustainable, precision agriculture.

Zyter Smart Agriculture gathers data on soil and atmospheric conditions from a network of IoT sensors buried in the ground and placed in various locations across the farm. In-ground sensors monitor measurement data that indicates soil health, including moisture, nutrients, and solar radiation levels. Other IoT-enabled devices, such as weather stations, generate temperature, precipitation, wind speed, and air quality measurements. All data is displayed in an intuitive graphical interface on the Zyter Smart Agriculture dashboard and mobile app. Zyter’s solution also displays notifications and alerts of soil readings that are out of optimal range. By replacing manual field inspections with automation, Zyter Smart Agriculture takes the guesswork out of soil monitoring and gives farmers a more accurate view of conditions.

“Today’s farmers are challenged to produce more yield to meet the growing global demand for food supplies, but with fewer labor resources,” said Sanjay Govil, founder and CEO of Zyter, Inc. “Zyter Smart Agriculture helps farmers increase efficiency and improve crop yield with precision agriculture practices, greater insights and more informed decision making.”

Additional key features of Zyter Smart Agriculture include:

  • AI-Based Actionable Insights – The AI component of Zyter Smart Agriculture analyzes the streams of IoT sensor data over time to provide predictive analytics and suggestions of actions farmers can take to ensure an optimized yield. Farmers and agronomists alike can use these actionable insights to make more informed decisions on crop location, nutrients, irrigation, pest control, and other crop management actions.
  • Drone-based Inspections with AI Imagery – Drones outfitted with AI imagery technology automates the manual task of physically inspecting crop fields. The AI technology learns over time what healthy crops should look like and what conditions are ideal to support them. This data is fed into Zyter Smart Agriculture and analyzed to provide additional actionable insights for attaining maximum crop yields.

Zyter Smart Agriculture is currently live as part of the FarmGrid Precision Agriculture Solution at the Grand Farm showcase facility near Fargo, N.D. “The Zyter SmartSpaces platform is a great fit for our FarmGrid solution,” said George Woodward, president & CEO, Trilogy Networks, Inc. “We standardized on the platform because of Zyter’s unique approach to simplifying data access from multiple sensors, controls, and connected devices. This unique combination of FarmGrid and SmartSpaces unleashes the creative innovation from millions of developers globally working to feed the world’s expanding population.”

Zyter Smart Agriculture is one of the pre-configured IoT-based solutions that run on the Zyter SmartSpaces platform, the platform layer provides support for the Qualcomm IoT Services Suite. By collaborating with global IoT leader, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Zyter can support the 400+ ecosystem members in the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program. Through the Qualcomm IoT Services Suite, Zyter and Qualcomm Technologies can enable businesses and entities looking to adopt smart solutions through the unique model of adopting IoTaaS. The Zyter SmartSpaces Platform breaks down silos of information by integrating and consolidating data from multiple IoT devices and applications into one seamless interface.

“The Grand Farm has been working with Trilogy and their FarmGrid solution during the 2021 growing season,” said Grand Farm director, Dr. William Aderholdt. “As the foundation of our signature initiative, we received two types of sensors from two different companies to use with this platform. Once on the farm, we had them installed and up-and-running in 15 minutes – seamlessly communicating with each other on the Zyter platform.”

Zyter is also a member of the Rural Cloud Initiative (RCI), a consortium of more than 70 network, technology, and application providers launched by Trilogy Networks to accelerate the digital transformation of rural America. Zyter’s IoT platform and Trilogy’s Edge Cloud infrastructure are supporting more than 250 different technology projects and experiments in a “living lab” on live, working farms today.

“Zyter’s Smart Agriculture solution raises the bar given its comprehensive architecture and user friendly experience, which makes it easy for farmers to understand, in real time, what is happening in their fields,” said Allen Salmasi, founder and CEO, Veea, Inc., a leader in edge computing, connectivity and security and contributing member of the Rural Cloud Initiative. “From Smart Cities to Smart Towns, Zyter’s commitment to innovation and scalability, and contributions to meaningful collaborations with partners including Qualcomm Technologies, Trilogy Networks, and Veea, is changing for the better how we address challenges including food quality, security and sustainability for decades to come.”
