Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service enables secure and reliable bidirectional communication between IoT devices and the cloud. The devices can connect to the cloud directly, or indirectly through a gateway. Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service assigns a unique digital identity to each device to establish trust relationships among devices and applications. It also enforces authentication and authorization for end-to-end communication security and to ensure proof of origin of data. It uses a cross-protocol functionality that lets you directly address any device connected to the cloud, regardless of network protocol and firewall restrictions. It is also provides reliable communication between the cloud and your devices, even over unreliable networks or with devices that connect intermittently.

You can access Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service data and functions from your enterprise applications by using REST APIs. You can also use REST APIs to securely integrate your connected devices with your enterprise applications.

About Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud Service

Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Asset Monitoring Cloud Service lets you monitor the location, condition, and utilization of your assets.

Asset management traditionally employs manual techniques. Untraceable assets, asset downtimes, and asset write-offs are common problems that are associated with traditional asset management systems. A typical manufacturing company, for example, can spend 25% of the total operating costs on asset maintenance.

Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud Service helps improve business productivity and reduce the operational costs and inefficiencies that are associated with asset management. With Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud Service, asset locations and asset health conditions are known at all times. Features such as anomaly detection and predictive analytics can help you detect and address problem areas. You can proactively take action, and schedule maintenance and replacements.

Use Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud Service to:

  • Locate assets instantly

  • Ensure asset availability and utilization

  • Prevent asset theft and misplacement

  • Reduce business process interruptions and downtime

  • Reduce capital expenditures

About Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service

Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Production Monitoring Cloud Service helps you monitor production facility performance and the health of production equipment within each facility.

Sensor devices installed on production equipment use cellular, satellite, or Bluetooth connections to transmit real-time performance data to Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service. You can use real-time and historic data to diagnose and predict production equipment failures and to reduce unplanned production shutdowns.

You can use two key performance indicators provided by Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service to manage factories and machines that are pending orders. You can use custom key performance indicators to determine the utilization and health of production equipment and get real-time production data for each of your production facilities. This data can also help you determine the production facilities or machines that are performing optimally or that are underperforming.

You can compare your factory or machine with the best performers, or view historical data to contextualize the current performance data. You can also monitor warnings that may anticipate future production issues, as well as monitor and track the current incidents and their resolution.

You can monitor the performance of your factories at different levels, starting from a global perspective and then narrowing your view to the health of specific machines:

  • Factory Level: View your production lines as they appear on your shop floor, and select a specific production line for more details.

  • Product Level: Monitor the progress of your production, view diagrams for product routing, and identify bottlenecks.

  • Machine Level: View machine availability statistics, view the associated sensor data to identify problem areas, and identify machine issues that affect production output.

About Oracle IoT Fleet Monitoring Cloud Service

Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Fleet Monitoring Cloud Service helps you track the location and activity of fleet assets. Sensors connected to the on-board diagnostic (OBD) port in each fleet asset use cellular, satellite, or Bluetooth connections to transmit real-time vehicle location and performance data to Oracle IoT Fleet Monitoring Cloud Service. You can use real-time and historic vehicle location and performance data to determine where changes can be implemented to improve customer satisfaction, reduce operating costs, and increase driver safety.

Your business requirements determine how you use Oracle IoT Fleet Monitoring Cloud Service. You might want to focus on the reduction of fuel costs, plan more efficient delivery routes, or keep in touch with drivers more frequently. Oracle IoT Fleet Monitoring Cloud Service provides a user interface that is designed to let you focus on the data that is important to you. Let’s take a look at some of these features.

The map view identifies the location of every fleet asset in real-time. Knowing the location of a vehicle in real-time lets you more accurately predict the estimated time of arrival (ETA), improve route planning efficiency, and reduce idle time and fuel consumption.

The prebuilt business dashboards and predefined key performance indicators (KPIs) help you monitor fleet performance — availability, active trips, fuel costs, utilization, speed violations, and more. Knowing the condition of each fleet asset helps you schedule regular repair and servicing and avoid downtime.

Rules can help you track fuel consumption, battery life, tire pressure, engine oil level, engine temperature, and more. Rules can also help you influence good driver behavior by monitoring speed violations, harsh braking, and route deviations.

About Oracle IoT Connected Worker Cloud Service

Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Connected Worker Cloud Service helps you monitor and manage worker safety. Sensor devices worn by workers use cellular, satellite, or Bluetooth connections to transmit real-time data about the worker’s health and physical environment to Oracle IoT Connected Worker Cloud Service. You can use real-time and historic data to maintain the highest level of safety, health, and productivity for your workforce.

Your business requirements determine how you use Oracle IoT Connected Worker Cloud Service. You might want to focus on the enforcement of health and safety policies, reduce worker exposure to hazardous or unsafe environments, or keep in touch with workers more frequently. Oracle IoT Connected Worker Cloud Service user interface provides a visual representation of the data that is important to you. Let’s take a look at some of these features.

The map view identifies the location of every worker, incident, project, and hazard in real-time. Knowing the location of a worker in real-time lets you better allocate resources and improves safety monitoring and compliance.

The prebuilt business dashboards and predefined key performance indicators (KPIs) let you locate and monitor worker safety and quickly identify the location of every incident, project, and hazard. Knowing the location of workers, incidents, projects, and hazards helps you prioritize tasks and resolve incidents quickly.

Rules can help you enforce safety policies and to monitor worker safety. Rules can also help you influence safety compliance by monitoring the location of workers and the number of reported incidents. Improved worker safety can reduce the likelihood of worker injury, and lower your insurance premiums. Identifying hazardous locations prevents workers from entering locations that are hazardous to a worker’s health and safety.
