3 Industrial Apps for 2016
If 2015 was a year of study and analysis, then 2016 should be a year of testing and implementation, specifically of 3 Industrial Apps. On the Automation World blog, Luigi De Bernardini’s new year resolutions.
January is typically the month of reflections and resolutions. A new year awaits us to improve on our past and aim at new targets. If this is true from a personal perspective, it is also true from a professional one—to carry out new projects, experiment with new solutions andnew business, and make some dream a reality.
With that in mind, I’m going to share with you my ideas for three applications I would like to create with Autoware during 2016.
Wear your info. In my opinion, 2015 was the year of the wearable device. All the big players in technology entered this market in 2015, sometimes following lesser-known but more agile and innovative companies. The level of activity in this market gave the wearable device sector the solidity and consistency it needed to begin seriously addressing the industrial world. For 2016, I propose the development of an application where important information can be constantly at hand for users, with needed information viewable with just a flick of the wrist. In the app I envision, the user's attention is called discreetly but effectively by vibration only when a response is needed, with the interface clearly providing the reason for the notification. A light touch from the user would allow them to interact with the system or at least declare their awareness of the situation.
