Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for Large Scale

Petrochemical Plants

 

A sustainable growth in improved productivity, increased workplace safety,

and reduced environmental impact

 

1. Duration: 150 min

 

2. Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to deliver exciting services across many sectors, from social media, business, and smart cities to industries. With the increase in research interest in the IoT, it is expected to intelligently control more than two billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020. Within the IoT paradigm, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is evolving to become the global interconnection between management and factory products in large-scale industries.

This tutorial explains the substantial role of the IoT in harnessing the power of tight and seamless integration of heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) with advancements in crowdsensing-based services. Along with current middleware research in large-scale industry, it has been observed that petrochemical industries integrated with the IoT will drive the new growth paradigm. This will lead to a strong and sustainable global growth, in terms of improved productivity, increased workplace safety, and reduced environmental impact.

 

3.Topics to be covered:

  • Overview of large-scale petrochemical industry with IoT
  • Challenges and research issues in the large-scale petrochemical plants
  • Crowdsensing-based framework
  • Industrial Intelligent Sensing Ecosystem (IISE)
