Internet of Things with IBM & Arrow


Arrow Electronics and IBM are hoping to improve the customer experience in airports by using IoT sensors to gather operational data on escalators, walkways, baggage handling systems and water fountains.

Their Smart Airport Asset Management Solution uses IoT sensors and gateways designed by Arrow to collect information on engine temperature, vibration and motor fluid levels; the IBM Watson IoT Platform to analyse the data; and IBM asset management software to allocate resources and schedule preventative maintenance. Adriana Robinson, vice president, IBM Watson IoT, said: “Harnessing data and analytics, this end-to-end IoT solution enables airports to improve the performance of key assets that directly impact customer experience.”
