Powering the Industrial IoT
Bluetooth® is leading a convergence of industry and information that paves the way for the next industrial revolution.
Bluetooth technology powers wireless sensor networks to enable predictive maintenance and detect machine failures before they occur. Phones and tablets can now replace on-machine displays to shield workers from harsh environments, improve system monitoring, and uncover additional capacity in a plant.
Bluetooth is connecting critical components of a manufacturer’s value stream, keeping machines, people, and processes in lockstep, while driving new levels of efficiency, productivity, and safety.
Key Use Cases
Bluetooth sensor networks deployed at scale across a factory floor enable real-time monitoring of system performance and tolerances, creating intelligent machines and whole manufacturing lines that can predict and problem solve.
Indoor positioning and location services and enterprise wearables powered by Bluetooth help manufacturing companies improve material management and process flow to achieve unprecedented operational efficiency. Bluetooth asset tracking and management solutions allow manufacturers to better monitor location, availability, and condition of equipment and output across the supply chain.
Powered by Bluetooth, the centralized automation of a factory’s essential systems— including lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), and security— conserves energy, lowers operating costs, and improves the life cycle of a building’s core systems.
