Smart Technology Finds Broad Applications in Warehousing

21 September 2022

Cisco Systems predicts by next year nearly 30 billion devices will be IoT-connected, and that machine-to-machine (M2M) connections supporting a broad range of IoT applications will represent about 50 percent of that total.

In warehouses, fulfilment centres and other materials handling environments, the rise of IoT in tends to be piecemeal, driven by focused applications - reporting dock activity, ensuring that lift truck batteries are charging properly, or checking that motors on critical equipment like conveyors aren’t headed for unexpected failure.

One of the broader uses of IoT in warehousing is to connect sensors to motors, drives, gearboxes or other components within automation systems to enable predictive maintenance. Of course, warehouse automation is already tightly monitored by programmable logic controllers (PLCs), wired networks and warehouse control systems (WCS), but it’s also possible for integrators or end-user maintenance staff to add wireless, IoT-ready sensors to watch for harmful trends in vibration or temperature.
