Aiotmission sembang AIOT digital twin

How does AI and IoT facilitate the Digital Twin modeling? How well the Digital Twin is able to help the industries in cost reduction? 

Above the main topic in the discussion in the live session recently help by AIoTmission.

What exactly is the Digital Twin? 

Imagine having an imaginary friend who’s exactly like you, knows everything you know, and does everything you do‚ÄĒbut they live in a magical world inside a computer. That’s kind of what a digital twin is for things like machines or buildings! It’s a virtual copy that looks and behaves just like the real thing, and it helps us understand how the real thing works and how we can make it better. So, engineers and scientists use digital twins to explore ideas, test out changes, and even predict what might happen in the real world without having to actually touch or change the real thing. It’s like having a secret double that helps you understand and improve stuff without any real-life consequences!

In manufacturing, digital twins are like having a crystal ball that shows us exactly what’s happening inside our machines and processes, but in a virtual world. Here’s how they help optimize things:

Understanding Current State: Imagine you have a digital twin of a production line. It mirrors what’s happening in real-time, showing you every little detail of how machines are running and how materials are flowing. This deep understanding helps identify bottlenecks, inefficiencies, or areas for improvement.

Testing Changes: Let’s say you want to try a new production layout or adjust machine settings. Instead of making these changes in the real world and risking disruptions, you can test them out on the digital twin first. It’s like running a simulation to see how things would play out without any real-world consequences.

Predictive Insights: Digital twins can analyze historical data to predict future outcomes. For example, they can forecast machine failures based on patterns in sensor data. By knowing when a machine might break down, you can schedule maintenance proactively, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity.

Optimizing Resources: With a digital twin, you can experiment with different scenarios to find the most efficient use of resources like energy, materials, and time. This might involve tweaking production schedules, adjusting inventory levels, or optimizing supply chain logistics to reduce waste and costs.

Continuous Improvement: Digital twins provide a platform for ongoing optimization. As you gather more data and learn from past experiences, you can fine-tune processes, iterate on designs, and drive continuous improvement across your manufacturing operations.

In essence, digital twins act as your virtual eyes and ears in the manufacturing world, helping you see what’s happening, predict what might happen next, and make smarter decisions to optimize processes and improve outcomes.

overall architecture of IIOT data acquistion

Temperature sensors data was collected at the Axiomtek IIoT edge gateway which is hosting the data over web API server.  Data retrieval is done via the Adistra SCADA Server. 

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software plays a crucial role in feeding data to digital twins by acting as a bridge between physical systems and virtual representations. Here’s how it works:

Data Acquisition: SCADA systems are designed to collect real-time data from various sensors, instruments, and control devices deployed across industrial processes. These sensors measure parameters such as temperature, pressure, flow rates, and energy consumption, among others.

Data Processing and Visualization: SCADA software processes the raw data collected from sensors, aggregates it, and presents it in a format that is easily understandable to operators and engineers. This processed data is typically displayed in the form of graphs, charts, and dashboards within the SCADA interface.

Data Transmission: Once the data is processed, SCADA systems transmit it to other software applications or platforms, including digital twins. This transmission can occur through various communication protocols such as OPC (Open Platform Communications), MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport), or RESTful APIs (Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interfaces).

Integration with Digital Twins: Digital twin platforms receive the data transmitted by SCADA systems and use it to update the virtual representations of physical assets and processes in real-time. This data includes information about the current state, performance, and operational parameters of the physical systems, enabling the digital twin to accurately reflect their behavior.

Feedback Loop: Digital twins may analyze the data received from SCADA systems to simulate different scenarios, predict future behavior, or optimize operations. Any insights or recommendations generated by the digital twin can be fed back to the SCADA system or directly to operators for action, creating a closed-loop feedback mechanism for continuous improvement.
In summary, SCADA software serves as a critical data source for digital twins by collecting, processing, and transmitting real-time data from physical systems, enabling virtual representations to accurately mirror their real-world counterparts and support data-driven decision-making and optimization efforts.

Fog computing vs Cloud Computing

Fog computing Vs Cloud

AIOT fog computing

The recent live session, held on March 29th, delved into the comparison between Fog computing and Cloud computing. A dedicated team from AIoTmission highlighted the significance of the fog computing layer within the Edge-to-Cloud computing architecture.

In typical AI and IoT architecture diagrams, the Fog computing layer often remains inconspicuous. This is primarily because fog computing devices or systems are typically integrated into the existing infrastructure, with the exception of new features like data analytics, which are more apparent due to advancements in AI technology.

The key differences among Edge, Fog, and Cloud computing were discussed during the session. Additionally, the main role of Fog computing in enhancing both edge and cloud computing was examined in detail.

These topics were thoroughly explored in episode 42 of the “Sembang AIoT” series.

Edge, Fog, and Cloud computing are three distinct paradigms in the realm of distributed computing, each serving unique purposes and offering specific advantages. Here are the main differences between them:

Location and Proximity:

Edge Computing: Edge computing involves processing data locally on devices that are closer to the data source, such as sensors, IoT devices, or end-user devices. The processing occurs at or near the data source, reducing latency and bandwidth usage.

Fog Computing: Fog computing extends the capabilities of edge computing by introducing an intermediate layer of computing resources between edge devices and the cloud. Fog nodes are placed closer to the edge devices within the same network infrastructure, providing additional processing, storage, and networking capabilities.

Cloud Computing: Cloud computing involves the centralized provision of computing resources over the internet. Data processing, storage, and other computing tasks occur on remote servers maintained by cloud service providers, typically located in data centers.

Latency and Response Time:

Edge Computing: Edge computing offers the lowest latency since data processing occurs locally, allowing for real-time or near-real-time responses to events.

Fog Computing: Fog computing reduces latency compared to cloud computing by processing data closer to the edge devices. While not as low-latency as edge computing, it offers faster response times compared to sending data to centralized cloud servers.

Cloud Computing: Cloud computing may introduce higher latency due to data transmission to and from remote servers, especially for applications requiring real-time processing.

Scalability and Resource Availability:

Edge Computing: Edge devices typically have limited computing resources, making scalability challenging for resource-intensive applications.

Fog Computing: Fog computing provides more scalability compared to edge computing by adding an additional layer of computing resources. Fog nodes can dynamically allocate resources based on demand, offering greater scalability for distributed applications.

Cloud Computing: Cloud computing offers virtually unlimited scalability, with cloud service providers managing large data centers equipped with massive computing and storage capacities. Cloud resources can be easily scaled up or down based on demand.

Data Security and Privacy:

Edge Computing: Since data processing occurs locally, edge computing may offer enhanced data security and privacy by reducing the need to transmit sensitive data over networks.

Fog Computing: Fog computing introduces additional security considerations compared to edge computing, as data may be processed and stored on intermediate fog nodes. However, proper security measures can be implemented to mitigate risks.

Cloud Computing: Cloud computing raises concerns regarding data security and privacy, especially when transmitting sensitive data over the internet to remote servers. Cloud service providers implement various security measures to protect data, but data breaches remain a potential risk.

In summary, the main differences between Edge, Fog, and Cloud computing lie in their location, latency, scalability, and security characteristics. Each paradigm offers distinct advantages and trade-offs, and the choice between them depends on the specific requirements and constraints of the application or use case. 

SCADA server act as a fog nodes in handling data collection

We demonstrated how SCADA in this case, The ADisra SCADA package is used to perform the data exchange between the Edge and the cloud. We have power meters data and virbation data  being collected by the edge IOT gateway. Data is then push to the Fog nodes, in this case the Adisra SCADA server.  The data is presented and analyzed by Adisra SCADA before publishing this to the Cloud. 

In this type of setup,  predictive maintenance can be performed at the SCADA level with the assist of additional ML AI computing and the decision can be made upon the data analytic is completed. This demonstrate the power of fog computing in the real world.  


Adisra SCADA server as fog node

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) servers can be configured to act as fog nodes in smart manufacturing environments, providing additional processing, storage, and networking capabilities at the edge of the network. Here’s how SCADA servers can serve as fog nodes:

Local Data Processing: SCADA servers are typically equipped with computing resources capable of processing data locally. In smart manufacturing, SCADA servers can analyze data from sensors, PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), and other devices in real-time, without needing to transmit all data to centralized cloud servers.

Real-time Control and Monitoring: SCADA systems are designed for real-time control and monitoring of industrial processes. By acting as fog nodes, SCADA servers can execute control algorithms, perform data filtering, and generate immediate responses to events occurring on the factory floor.

Edge Analytics: SCADA servers can host analytics software capable of running advanced algorithms for predictive maintenance, anomaly detection, and optimization of manufacturing processes. These analytics can be performed locally on the SCADA server, leveraging historical data and machine learning models to generate insights at the edge.

Integration with Edge Devices: SCADA servers can communicate directly with edge devices such as PLCs, HMIs (Human-Machine Interfaces), and sensors. This integration allows SCADA servers to collect data from distributed devices, coordinate control actions, and exchange information with other fog nodes or cloud servers as needed.

Redundancy and Fault Tolerance: SCADA systems often incorporate redundancy and fault tolerance mechanisms to ensure continuous operation in industrial environments. SCADA servers acting as fog nodes can provide local redundancy, fault detection, and failover capabilities, minimizing disruptions to manufacturing processes.

Secure Communication: SCADA servers implement secure communication protocols to exchange data with edge devices and other components of the industrial control system. This ensures the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of data transmitted between fog nodes and other networked devices.

In summary, SCADA servers can effectively serve as fog nodes in smart manufacturing environments, extending the capabilities of edge computing by providing local processing, control, analytics, and communication functions. By distributing computing resources closer to the edge of the network, SCADA servers help optimize industrial processes, enhance real-time decision-making, and improve overall system performance and resilience.

Transitioning from Industry 3.0 to 4.0 necessitates a standardized framework to facilitate a smooth transformation, ensuring manageability throughout the process.

There is this standard framework in the transformation, the ISA-95.

ISA-95, or the International Society of Automation Standard 95, is a widely recognized standard in the realm of manufacturing and automation. It provides guidelines for integrating enterprise and control systems in industrial environments. Originally developed in the 1990s, ISA-95 has been instrumental in defining the interface between enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and manufacturing execution systems (MES) or even SCADA ( supervisory control and Data acquisition).

In the context of the transition from Industry 3.0 to Industry 4.0, ISA-95 plays a crucial role in facilitating interoperability and data exchange between different systems and layers within a digital factory including the top layer of¬†Cloud integration.. Here’s how it helps in this transformation:

Interoperability: ISA-95 defines standardized interfaces and communication protocols, enabling seamless integration between various components of the manufacturing process. This interoperability is essential for transitioning from siloed systems of Industry 3.0 to interconnected, data-driven systems of Industry 4.0.

Data Integration: By providing a common framework for data exchange, ISA-95 allows for the integration of data from disparate sources across the manufacturing enterprise. This integrated data is foundational for implementing advanced analytics, machine learning, and other Industry 4.0 technologies.

Visibility and Control: ISA-95 facilitates real-time visibility into manufacturing operations by standardizing the exchange of production data between different levels of the manufacturing hierarchy, such as the shop floor, supervisory control, and enterprise levels. This visibility is essential for implementing agile and responsive manufacturing processes characteristic of Industry 4.0.

Scalability: As manufacturing systems evolve from traditional hierarchical architectures to more distributed and modular architectures in Industry 4.0, ISA-95 provides a scalable framework for managing the complexity of interconnected systems. This scalability ensures that digital factories can adapt and grow in line with evolving business needs and technological advancements.

 

In summary, ISA-95 serves as a foundational standard for enabling the seamless integration, interoperability, and data exchange necessary for the transition from Industry 3.0 to Industry 4.0 in digital factories. By adopting ISA-95 guidelines, manufacturers can streamline their operations, improve efficiency, and unlock the full potential of Industry 4.0 technologies.

 

How ISA-95 frame helps in digital transformation

ISA-95 framework in digital transformation

There is this UNS ( Unified NameSpace) in the context of industrial transformation. 

A unified namespace refers to a single, standardized system for naming and organizing data across an organization or within an industrial ecosystem. In the context of industrial transformation, particularly in the transition to Industry 4.0, a unified namespace plays a crucial role in enabling seamless data integration, interoperability, and collaboration among various systems, devices, and stakeholders. Here’s how:

Data Integration: Industrial environments typically consist of diverse systems, equipment, and sensors from different vendors, each with its own data formats and naming conventions. A unified namespace provides a standardized approach to representing and organizing data, making it easier to integrate information from disparate sources into a cohesive digital infrastructure.

Interoperability: With a unified namespace, different components within the industrial ecosystem can communicate and exchange data more effectively. Standardized naming conventions and data formats ensure that systems can understand and interpret information correctly, facilitating interoperability between devices, machines, and software applications.

Collaboration: In modern industrial settings, collaboration between different departments, teams, and even organizations is essential for driving innovation and efficiency. A unified namespace provides a common language for describing and accessing data, fostering collaboration among stakeholders across the entire value chain.

Scalability: As industrial systems grow and evolve, a unified namespace provides a scalable foundation for managing the increasing volume and complexity of data. By establishing standardized data structures and naming conventions upfront, organizations can adapt more easily to changing requirements and technologies without sacrificing interoperability or data consistency.

Data Analytics and Insights: A unified namespace simplifies data management and analysis, enabling organizations to derive valuable insights and intelligence from their industrial data. By establishing a consistent framework for organizing and accessing data, organizations can more effectively apply advanced analytics, machine learning, and other data-driven technologies to optimize operations, improve decision-making, and drive continuous improvement.

Overall, a unified namespace is a fundamental enabler of industrial transformation, providing the infrastructure needed to integrate, standardize, and leverage data effectively across the entire industrial ecosystem. By adopting a unified approach to data naming and organization, organizations can unlock the full potential of Industry 4.0 technologies and realize the benefits of increased efficiency, agility, and innovation.

MQTT protocol

MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is a lightweight messaging protocol designed for the efficient exchange of data between devices in constrained environments, such as those with low bandwidth, high latency, or limited processing power. Here’s how MQTT works:

Client-Server Architecture: MQTT follows a client-server architecture where clients (devices or applications) connect to a central server, known as the MQTT broker. The broker is responsible for routing messages between clients.

 

Publish-Subscribe Model: MQTT uses a publish-subscribe messaging pattern. Clients can publish messages to specific topics, and other clients can subscribe to these topics to receive messages. This decoupling of senders and receivers allows for flexible and efficient communication between devices.

Topics: Topics are hierarchical strings used to categorize messages. They are represented as a series of segments separated by forward slashes (/), similar to a file path. Clients can publish messages to specific topics or subscribe to topics to receive messages. For example, a topic could be sensors/temperature to represent temperature sensor data.

Quality of Service (QoS): MQTT supports different levels of message delivery assurance through its Quality of Service levels:

QoS 0 (At most once): Messages are delivered at most once, with no guarantee of delivery.

QoS 1 (At least once): Messages are guaranteed to be delivered at least once, but duplicates may occur.

QoS 2 (Exactly once): Messages are guaranteed to be delivered exactly once, but this level of assurance comes with increased overhead.

Connection Establishment: Clients establish a connection with the MQTT broker using TCP/IP or other transport protocols. The client can specify its client identifier and may also provide authentication credentials if required by the broker.

Keep-Alive Mechanism: Once connected, clients maintain their connection to the broker using a keep-alive mechanism. Clients periodically send PINGREQ messages to the broker, and the broker responds with PINGRESP messages to indicate that the connection is still active.

Message Transmission: When a client publishes a message to a topic, it sends the message to the broker, which then forwards the message to all clients subscribed to that topic. The broker may also retain messages for clients that are not currently connected, depending on the configuration.

 

Message Retention: MQTT brokers can be configured to retain the last message published to a topic. This allows new subscribers to immediately receive the last known value when they subscribe to a topic.

Security: MQTT supports various security features, including authentication, access control lists (ACLs), and encryption (TLS/SSL), to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of message transmission.

Overall, MQTT’s lightweight design, efficient publish-subscribe model, and support for various quality of service levels make it well-suited for a wide range of IoT and M2M (machine-to-machine) communication scenarios.

This competition showcased the effectiveness of deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) in image classification tasks, significantly outperforming traditional machine learning methods. The winning entry, AlexNet, demonstrated the potential of deep learning to revolutionize computer vision tasks.

Since then, deep learning research has accelerated, leading to numerous breakthroughs in various domains, including natural language processing, speech recognition, robotics, healthcare, and more. Researchers and engineers continue to refine deep learning algorithms and architectures, contributing to its ongoing evolution and widespread adoption.

So, while the foundational concepts of deep learning have been around for some time, its explosive growth and impact on the field of artificial intelligence are more recent, particularly over the past decade.

Deep learning AI has revolutionized industrial transformation in several ways:

Predictive Maintenance: Deep learning algorithms can analyze sensor data from industrial equipment to predict potential failures before they occur. By detecting anomalies and patterns in the data, maintenance can be scheduled proactively, minimizing downtime and reducing maintenance costs.

By analyzing images or sensor data in real-time, these systems can identify imperfections and deviations from quality standards, ensuring only high-quality products reach the market.

Optimized Production Processes: Deep learning algorithms can optimize manufacturing processes by analyzing data from various sources, such as production line sensors, supply chain information, and historical data. This analysis helps identify inefficiencies, streamline operations, and improve overall productivity.

Supply Chain Management: Deep learning AI can enhance supply chain management by predicting demand, optimizing inventory levels, and identifying potential disruptions. By analyzing data from diverse sources, including historical sales data, market trends, and external factors, deep learning models can provide valuable insights for decision-making in logistics and supply chain operations.

Customization and Personalization: Deep learning algorithms can analyze customer preferences and behavior to enable personalized product recommendations and customization options. By leveraging data from customer interactions, purchase history, and demographic information, manufacturers can tailor their offerings to individual preferences, enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Energy Efficiency: Deep learning AI can optimize energy consumption in manufacturing facilities by analyzing data from energy meters, sensors, and other sources. By identifying opportunities for energy savings and implementing adaptive control strategies, manufacturers can reduce their environmental footprint and operating costs.

Overall, deep learning AI has transformed industrial processes by enabling predictive capabilities, automation, optimization, and personalized experiences. By harnessing the power of data and advanced algorithms, manufacturers can drive innovation, efficiency, and competitiveness in the global marketplace.

Now, how does this relate to AI (Artificial Intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things)?

AI and Dataspace

AI is like a smart librarian in this virtual library. It doesn’t just help you find things but also understands what you might need even before you ask. For example, based on what you’ve looked for in the past, it can suggest new information or make connections between different pieces of data to help you make decisions. This is possible because the dataspace organizes data in a way that AI can easily access and learn from it, helping the AI to get smarter over time and provide you with more personalized and accurate assistance.

IoT and Dataspace

Imagine if every book and item in the library could talk and tell you exactly where it is, how it’s feeling (like if a device is overheating), or even if it’s about to run out of battery. That’s what IoT devices do in the dataspace. These devices, like smart thermostats, fitness trackers, and even smart fridges, are constantly sending information to the dataspace. This data can tell you (and the smart librarian AI) what’s happening in the real world, in real-time. So, the dataspace not only stores this information but also helps make sense of it, allowing you to control these devices better or get insights into your daily activities and environment.

The Connection

The magic happens when AI and IoT work together within the dataspace. AI uses the vast amount of data generated by IoT devices to learn patterns, make predictions, and automate tasks. For instance, an AI might analyze the data from smart home devices to optimize energy use, making your home more comfortable while saving on electricity bills.

In layman’s terms, the dataspace is the backbone that supports AI and IoT by organizing and storing all the data they need and produce. It’s like the brain and memory for these technologies, enabling them to work smarter and make our lives easier and more connected.

GPS on the 5G mobile that talks

Imagine 5G mobile communication as the super-fast express delivery service for the digital world, significantly impacting how data is moved, accessed, and utilized within the dataspace. Here’s how 5G plays a pivotal role:

5G offers incredibly fast data speeds and more bandwidth compared to its predecessors. This means that information can travel back and forth between devices, servers, and the internet much quicker. In the context of a dataspace, which relies on the timely and efficient exchange of data, 5G ensures that even the most data-intensive tasks are completed smoothly and swiftly. This is akin to upgrading from a bicycle courier to a fleet of high-speed delivery drones for your data.

Reduced Latency

Latency refers to the delay before a transfer of data begins following an instruction for its transfer. 5G dramatically reduces this delay, making real-time data exchange and processing a reality. For applications within the dataspace that require instant response times, such as autonomous driving or real-time analytics for financial trading, 5G’s low latency is a game-changer. It’s like having a conversation with someone in real-time, without those awkward pauses that can disrupt the flow.

Enhanced Connectivity

5G technology supports a higher number of connected devices per unit area than 4G. This capability is crucial in densely populated areas or in scenarios where many IoT devices are deployed, such as smart cities or industrial complexes. Within a dataspace, this means more devices can contribute data and insights without the network becoming congested or unreliable. Imagine a crowded concert where everyone can stream videos without buffering; that’s what 5G offers to the dataspace.

Enabling New Technologies and Applications

The combination of high speed, low latency, and enhanced connectivity allows for the development and deployment of new technologies and applications. For example, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), which require the quick processing of massive amounts of data, become more viable and widespread with 5G. In the dataspace, this translates to more immersive and interactive experiences, whether for entertainment, education, or professional training.

Facilitating AI and IoT Integration

5G’s capabilities boost the efficiency and effectiveness of AI and IoT within the dataspace. AI applications can process data collected from IoT devices more quickly, leading to faster insights and actions. This could mean smarter cities that adapt traffic lights in real-time to reduce congestion or manufacturing plants that predict equipment failures before they occur, minimizing downtime.

In layman’s terms, 5G acts as the high-speed highway that connects different parts of the dataspace, ensuring data flows quickly, reliably, and efficiently. This not only enhances the performance of current technologies but also opens up possibilities for new innovations that can transform our lives and work.
