Asset utilization, advanced monitoring, diagnosis & alerts, enhanced visibility of in-transit carriers and predictive programming are few areas where IoT helps in improving the safety measures and decreasing operational cost. With the help of advanced diagnostic sensors placed at the key areas of assets, communicating real-time statistics about the machinery, helps us to judge a potential breakdown beforehand and prepare for counter action. This can only be made possible by continuous monitoring and analyzing the machine behavior closely. The next step is to utilize the insights obtained and develop a predictive programming strategy which is capable of lowering the breakdown scenarios.
