Machine-to-machine, known as M2M, is transforming industry. It gives your business assets the power to communicate directly with each other, automating day-to-day tasks that free up your workforce to get on with more important business.
Machine-to-machine technology, known as M2M, is transforming business and industry. M2M gives your business assets the ability to communicate directly with each other, allowing you to remotely monitor, control and even automate complex tasks.
Let's take a look at some of the ways M2M is already being put to use.Mute
M2M's ability to diagnose and report problems in real time is a powerful advantage in the industrial and manufacturing industries, where detecting problems ahead of time can mean considerable cost savings.Mute
In the mining sector, M2M technology in the form of remote monitoring and remote control is allowing complicated machinery, like drill rigs, to operate more efficiently in the furthest corners of Australia.Mute
Like the mining industry, the agricultural and natural resource sector involves huge areas of land, and M2M technology allows workers to manage assets remotely, saving time and travel.Mute
Smart home appliances and personal electronic devices are becoming everyday M2M applications for consumers. In-vehicle telematics can notify emergency services of vehicle accidents in real time, while tools like pet tracking give families peace of mind.Mute
M2M can benefit utilities providers in everything from troubleshooting to customer service. It can detect small systems faults before they cause problems, and keep precise track of power usage for fairer and more accurate billing.Mute
As our population ages and health management becomes a more pressing issue for society, M2M can literally be a lifesaver - able to remotely monitor chronic conditions, like blood pressure, and keep a vital eye on patients.Mute
With the retail sector experiencing enormous change, M2M is offering new ways to achieve a significant competitive advantage, with digital signage, remote stock management and many other possibilities.Mute
M2M will completely transform the way we manage our cities. From traffic congestion to garbage collection, M2M can provide real-time visibility and deliver streamlined solutions to everyday situations that once seemed almost impossible to solve.Mute
In the realm of public safety, a quick, effective, and sometimes even proactive response is vital. M2M enables this through remote monitoring and surveillance, as well as geospatial data that helps emergency teams get to the right place quickly.Mute
In finance and business, M2M automation technologies can make buildings 'smart', detecting maintenance issues before they cause problems. Other smart M2M solutions include secure mobile payments systems, reducing the need to carry large amounts of cash.Mute
Even the best planning can be circumvented by unforeseen events. Fortunately, M2M can track vehicles, monitor their operation, protect their cargo and improve driver safety - all in real time - leading to greater productivity, compliance and reporting.Mute
