Case Studies

Anti-interference Robust Mesh Solution Upgrades Cold Chain Logistics

Anti-interference Robust Mesh Solution Upgrades Cold Chain Logistics

The global cold chain market is projected to grow and it’s mainly driven by the increasing need for an efficient storage system for perishable goods in order to avoid wastage of food products, and due to constant technological advancements, the market is expected to increase further cold chain logistic facilities and management products in the future.

Requirements and Solution
A cold chain logistics firm in Taiwan was looking for an industrial anti-interference wireless solution for temperature data analysis and asset management of cold cage facilities. Cold cage facilities need to recharge in transfer stations and there is potential random electromagnetic interference present which can destroy wireless transmissions, so they were looking to design an anti-interference solution to combat the problem.
The customer chose Advantech’s Wireless Mesh IoT solution, WISE-3310 Mesh Gateway and WISE-1021 mesh node, to provide stable wireless network transmission. The built in WISE-PaaS/RMM software package with remote device management provided an IoT software development platform to quickly complete a sensor-to-cloud solution ready for deployment.


  • Low maintenance for auto wireless connection and transmission with anti-interference
  • Easy asset management for expensive cold cage facilities
  • Remote device management by WISE-PaaS/RMM
  • Reduced food spoilage and increased facility usage thru big data analysis

Acoustic Emission Sensor Solution for Wireless Machine Failure Prediction System

Acoustic Emission Sensor Solution for Wireless Machine Failure Prediction System

In this competitive, globalized world, the challenges faced by industrial manufacturers are constant, and keeping processes and plants operating efficiently is essential to production. Deploying wireless Acoustic Emission (AE) sensors for the inspection of manufactured products and monitoring the safety of infrastructure is a crucial part of keeping everything running smoothly 24/7.

Requirements and Solution
An AE sensor solution provider in Japan was planning to develop a remote monitoring and control system based on a large scale wireless design. The wireless network needed to be of the highest quality, with powerful computing capacity and flexible interface for easy integration. They chose Advantech’s M2.COM low power WISE-1520 Wi-Fi module, which is designed with rich I/O interface including ADC, DIO, I2C, SPI, UART and USB for diverse sensor integration. WISE-1520 passed crucial industrial-level tests to ensure reliable sensor integration. By using the built-in IoT WISE-PaaS/RMM software platform that comes with WISE-1520, the customer was able to quickly develop and deploy their AE sensor solution.


  • Low maintenance for remote management and large scale WSN management with AE solution
  • Optimized resources and focus on machine failure prediction
  • Remote device management by WISE-PaaS/RMM

Indoor environment monitoring system

Indoor environment monitoring system

Over 70% of employees work in the interior spaces more than 3 persons in a closed building. If the indoor ventilation is insufficient, the air quality is easily deteriorated by accumulating contaminants. In 1892, World Health Organization (WHO) is defined the “sick building syndrome”. It describes as abnormal symptoms such as eye, nose and throat irritation, bad taste and asthma attacks caused by the air pollution within the buildings. Indoor environment impacts the human health and the quality of work. It becomes important to build a complete indoor environment monitoring system.

Requirements and Solution
An environment sensor system provider in Taiwan wants to let their sensor products become wirelessly. The traditional method required to install the wires in different floors is costly. However, the sensor provider felt the wireless technology is complicated due to lack of experience on software, cloud and integration. They need to purchase the wireless module, build the software, find the cloud platform and integrated all of components above. Advantech’s M2.COM low power WISE-1520 Wi-Fi module solves customer’s concern. WISE-1520 offers proven hardware, complete SDK and design-in service for customer’s integration. Built-in WISE-Agent also helps to communicate with WISE-PaaS/RMM Cloud platform. The customer was able to build the wireless sensor system quickly and save the installation costs.


  • Reduce the installation costs of traditional sensors
  • Lower the complexity for customers to integrate wireless and cloud platform
  • Collect the environment data for further analysis with WISE-PaaS/RMM
