Roborigger has secured the sponsorship from METS Ignited to participate in a 12-month IoT technology incubation initiative run by the Innovation Central Perth (ICP).
The initiative, part of ICP’s Wireless Industrial Sensor Environment (WISE) programme, will accelerate the further development of IoT applications on Roborigger devices to advance our logistics planning and tracking functionality as well as the safety and operational efficiency analysis.
Roborigger’s built-in remote monitoring system presently records real-time lifting data and load movement with every lift and set down. This allows our application to be used for planning and tracking logistics operations.
The current Roborigger IoT development roadmap includes AI image recognition capabilities to detect and give warnings when personnel are under the crane loads; as well as an automated logistics database application that identifies, tracks, and categorises crane loads from source to final destination.
The 12-month membership will include consultation with ICP experts to identify and validate industry-appropriate wireless sensor technologies, access to WISE hardware and software facilities, as well as the opportunity to network with other WISE members to learn across different projects and industries.
IoT Product Manager, Mick Dunne, says the team is excited with the opportunity.
“Our IoT development roadmap is expanding rapidly and we are already in the process of integrating our data into our own and third party logistics packages. With WISE membership the journey will be a lot smoother – no bumps and scrapes from running too fast and we will be working with others to share our learnings.”
METS Ignited is a government-funded industry growth centre for mining equipment, technology and services (METS) sector.
Innovation Central Perth (ICP) is an industry and research collaboration centred led by Cisco with partners Curtin University, Woodside, and CSIRO’s Data61.
