LTI And PTC Unveil IoT Center Of Excellence
Larsen & Toubro Infotech Limited (LTI), a global technology consulting and digital solutions company, in alliance with USA-based PTC Inc., unveiled a state-of-the-art Center of Excellence (CoE) in Bengaluru, focused on Internet of Things (IoT)-based innovations. The CoE will focus specifically on Industry 4.0 solutions in Manufacturing and Oil & Gas sectors.
LTI will leverage the CoE to design, build and showcase solutions for smart, connected enterprises, from proof of-concept to industrialized deployments. The CoE will showcase the possibilities of transformative technologies to global customers, featuring Industrial IoT solutions developed on PTC’s ThingWorx platform. LTI plans to deploy reusable IoT assets from its real-world experience in implementing enterprise-scale digital transformation solutions for global customers like L&T Construction and other global industrial manufacturing enterprises.
A unique feature of the CoE will be the use of real-time data from multiple facilities in use at LTI’s campus, thereby providing rich, real-life data beyond what’s usually available in a simulated environment. These include: -
1. Asset Performance Management capabilities shown using data from generators in use on campus, demonstrating condition-based monitoring.
2. Connected Elevator solutions shown using data derived from the elevators in use on campus.
3. Smart transport solutions used to track & monitor performance of lawn mowers on campus.
4. Additional information inputs will help showcase other capabilities, such as those for solutions that supply & sort products on a conveyor.
AR/VR technology will also be demonstrated to show how those technologies can be used to contextualize digital information in the physical world and enable seamless interaction with users.
