Collaborative Worker Safety Solution Recognized as IoT Solution of the Year

Hitachi Solutions America, a provider of global industry solutions powered by the Microsoft Cloud, is part of the Internet of Things (IoT) worker safety solution selected as the winner of the Industrial IoT Solution of the Year award by IoT Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global IoT market today. Development partner Advantech accepted the award for the winning solution, which is a collaboration between Hitachi Solutions, Advantech, Behr Technologies (BTI) and Microsoft to deliver a reliable and secure wireless communications solution for private industrial IoT networks.

"We congratulate Advantech for the award and are very pleased to be part of the revolutionary worker safety solution that IoT Breakthrough selected as its Industrial IoT Solution of the Year," said David Bishop, Senior Vice President of R&D at Hitachi Solutions America. "Our IoT Service Hub is a key component of the winning solution and provides a turn-key platform that leverages predictive analytics, AI and machine learning to analyze IoT data and turn it into actionable insights that provide safer work environments and help protect workers' health and well-being."

"While much of the development around IoT solutions focuses on single solutions and innovation, the reality is that the true power of IoT will only be achieved through collaboration and interoperability from innovative solutions working together," said James Johnson, Managing Director at IoT Breakthrough. "We are pleased to recognize Advantech and this collaborative effort with BTI, Hitachi Solutions America and Microsoft in progressing the secure wireless connectivity that sits at the core of the IoT and Industry 4.0 revolution."

The collaborative worker safety solution aims to meet the growing demand in the marketplace for robust and comprehensive out-of-the-box wireless industrial IoT communications solutions to connect the various sensors used by industrial and commercial customers in their business intelligence efforts. It combines innovative IoT and robust wireless connectivity to provide industries with unprecedented level of visibility into workers' health and their environments. Sensors installed onsite and in wearables capture environmental data such as temperature, humidity and air quality as well as health data like heart rate and outdoor location.

"Leveraging Hitachi Solutions America's advanced analytics platform, situational data can be distilled into actionable insights on a remote management console, thereby empowering data-driven decision-making and improving the safety and productivity of the cross-industry field workforce," said a company spokesperson.
