As-A-Service Model Key for Large-Scale Deployment of Indoor Location Services

12 Nov 2018

Location-Based Services (LBS) have evolved dramatically over time and will continue to do so. The first waves of these services took the form of outdoor navigation services, proximity marketing solutions, and social applications that integrate points of interest. We are now starting to see the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) era, where many connected devices and objects will require high precision and seamless indoor and outdoor positioning technologies to enable use cases such as seamless way-finding, people and pet tracking, asset tracking, proximity services, geo-fencing, and geo-information services.

2nd Annual Transformative Technology Trends Report

06 Nov 2018

We are at two crossroads. The first is centered around fundamental operational realities that are beginning to take hold in many markets, combined with the notion that traditional methods for alleviating these accumulating pressures are proving less than optimal. Technology is being positioned as the force multiplier that will solve these issues. The second crossroad is centered around the outlook and fortunes of companies that supply technologies and technology-based services. The rapid growth of many of these companies was built around the consumer market or founded on IT and is now plateauing. Our second annual 3 BIG Trends Impacting the Most Compelling Transformative Technologies: 19 1-Minute Reads whitepaper will provide a first step in giving more clarity on technological choice, business application relevancy, and investment priority.

The American Industrial Revolution: Brief Reads for Visionaries

21 Sep 2018

There are several emerging technologies that look set to enable manufacturers in developing markets to remain competitive: Additive manufacturing is on the cusp of being able to demonstrate its applicability for scale deployment. Generative design promises to reduce wastage, speed design processes, and revolutionize material usage. Virtualization, visualization, and digital twins are set to reduce machine downtime and machine commissioning time as well as improve the efficiency of all aspects of part and product manufacturing, from start to end. Cobots and autonomous material handling robots are set to enable a more efficient and zero touch environment that, not only optimizes the shop floor but also extends beyond the line to both ends of the process in the warehouse and eventually into the logistics supply chain. AI (Artificial Intelligence), sensorization, connectivity, and IoT (Internet of Things) will be key to optimizing productivity. However, they are currently being held back by conservative attitudes toward data management and connecting machines. This will change as the market pressure mounts. Download this whitepaper, “The Next American Industrial Revolution: Key Takeaways from IMTS 2018 and Hannover Messe USA – 4 Brief Reads for Visionaries,” that ABI Research discovered firsthand during the IMTS (International Manufacturing Trade Show) and Hannover Messe USA conferences.
