NB-IoT: Remote Asset Monitoring

Client Background

The client was setup under the Department of Atomic Energy. The initial accent was on total self-reliance and the client was engaged in the Design, Development, Manufacture and Marketing of several products with emphasis on three technology lines viz. Computers, Control Systems and Communications.

The client played a very significant role in the training and growth of high caliber technical and managerial manpower especially in the fields of Computers and Information Technology. Though the initial thrust was on meeting the Control & Instrumentation requirements of the Nuclear Power Program, the expanded scope of self-reliance pursued by the client enabled the company to develop various products to cater to the needs of Defense, Civil Aviation, Information & Broadcasting, Telecommunications, Insurance, Banking, Police, and Para-Military Forces, Oil & Gas, Power, Space Education, Health, Agriculture, Steel and Coal sectors and various user departments in the Government domain.

OTI Relationship with Client

The client was looking for Product Engineering and Solution Development Services for the requirement to design and develop NB-IoT based asset tracking system for a private 4G/LTE Network.

The client was tracking and monitoring all the assets working and present at their facility. Parameters like health, temperature, heartrate, location and other parameters were monitored and tracked.

This whole task requires continuous manual monitoring of asset data at the location which makes the whole process very tedious. Therefore, the idea is to digitize the whole monitoring and tracking process via collecting the data from specific module and representing the useful and meaningful information and numbers from collected data.

Challenges

The monitoring and tracking of the asset is done manually and all the parameter data was tracked and monitored manually as well. Which is very tedious task also there is a high chance of human errors because of human intervention done in manual work.

Therefore, this whole system needs to be digitally operated with minimum human intervention for the simplified functioning of the whole process through secure cloud/server management. ​

Also, crucial protection must be provided to the whole system at the hardware edge.

Solution

We have designed a flexible, and compatible system to monitor the whole asset tracking and monitoring system thereby incorporating the digital transformation by using a unique NB-IoT hardware as a central hub which later sends the data to the cloud/server. ​

NB-IoT Hardware: This NB-IoT hardware will be a battery-operated module. It will work as a centralized element to manage all data points deployed on the field using secure wireless communication. It will contain the power supply management circuitry and other peripherals for the NB-IoT chipset module. It will consist of an application processor to run the control application with NB IoT chipset, it will have connectors to access the cellular module interfaces. It works as a key element managing the local as well as remote networks using wireless connectivity.

Key Features

  • 3-Phase There will be antenna connectors for the cellular RF interface and the GNSS RF interface
  • USB connectors for the UART interfaces and the USB interface of the cellular module, also other header connectors ​
  • An optional card containing the Bio metric sensor modules like - Body temperature, Blood Pressure, Heartrate and A digital camera for picture sharing

Application :

Works as an intelligent intermediator between OT & IT. Manage all field data points using a secure wireless network, communication for data acquisition as per configuration. It takes the dataset to the Cloud/Server for further analysis and presentation. By integrating an application processor, NB-IoT chipset, RF front end (RFFE), GNSS and power management in a package, OTI propose solution will offers a compact solution for ECIL’s requirement.
