In simple terms, an ‘intelligent’ or ‘smart’ system is a number of sensing devices or mini systems that are connected and analyse the data to make predicted, automated decisions. In practice, an intelligent system can:
- work autonomously to control a process (automation)
- provide new business intelligence for decision makers
- raise alerts to humans if an unwanted situation is unfolding
To create an intelligent system to control a small number of key processes or functions isn’t hard or expensive and can reap great operational benefits very quickly.
Complexity increases with the number of different device types in the system. Key for success is to use technologies with open platform architecture, such as Axis and Milestone, and work with technology partners that share the same ecosystem philosophy.Enquire Now
