Astro is a solution aimed at transforming how we automate and operate on the floor in mission critical situations.
The Challenge: Automation with complete interoperability and data integration
Disruptive industrial trends around “digital labor”, including smart sensors and devices, connected machines, intelligent assistants, drones, AGVs, and robots, are redefining the workflow of tomorrow. Today more than ever business owners must look to adopt intelligent solutions before the competition takes over. Data integration and system interoperability is the first challenge.
There are a lot of systems and machines producing data, but very few ways to exchange and store information in the standardized
way required for adoption of IoT solutions at scale. Data silos found in IT, operations and the environment make the creation
of interoperable systems a complex process. Astro is a smart industrial solution driven by cross-correlated data decisions and
connected products with the ability to make automated decisions and take actions in real-time. Making machines intelligent
and augmenting manual work produces operational efficiencies and increases productivity gains that make a difference.
Innovations in hardware, software, edge computing, connectivity, big data, analytics, and machine learning converge to create Astro. Digital Labor – robots, drones, carts, assistants and more — can be remotely operated and stream video, gather sensor data, do surveillance, and complete complex tasks using object recognition, obstacle avoidance, and sophisticated routing and wayfinding.
In addition, legacy systems and machines can be outfitted with sensors and RFID to enable smarter production, workflows and process.
Leveraging Edysen, Astro produces a localized secure network with or without Wi-Fi in order to give you the information and agility to capitalize on customer demand and needs. Powerful mobility tools empower workers, boosting productivity in every inch of the warehouse, plant, hospital or building. Astro captures, verifies and mobilizes the data you need to more accurately fill internal and external customer orders from inventory, see what you have and subsequently route where it needs to go in real-time. Deep data integration also enables enhanced safety and increased quality of operations.
