IoT Suite

IoT Suite

The Internet of Things (IoT) enables constant monitoring of important industry variables (e.g. climate variables for greenhouses) and is indispensable for the continued competitiveness of manufacturing companies. The high volume of data organized into a user friendly dashboard for visualization allows operators of any industry to see trends, patterns, and correlations that otherwise cannot be made by the naked eye. IoT equips manufacturing operations with data insights that lead to higher precision and greater efficiency. Koidra's IoT Suite is an Industrial IoT platform to augment operators of any real-time data-driven manufacturing, helping operators realize and do more than what previously could be done without.

Koidra’s IoT Suite is an operating system (OS) for all of your IoT and operational intelligence needs. It starts the with the following foundational core modules.

1️⃣ Data Gateway (IoT Hub)

✅ Universal sensor compatibility; can be set up to read all industrial sensor types, including wireless sensors or mixed wired/wireless sensors

Drop-in: the IoT Hub can be integrated with most existing PLC/SCADA systems, with or without existing data exchange interfaces (aka. API)

✅ Quick setup time

2️⃣ Cloud-based Data Management

✅ Data from separate sources (sensors, legacy systems, and other databases) are unified in a secure data storage cloud

✅ Both real-time data and unlimited historical data can be accessed 24/7 ✅ Single-sign-on security, and complete ownership of your data

3️⃣ Operational Intelligence

✅ Data monitoring, visualization, and advanced analytics

✅ Modern, sleek user data interface

✅ Designed for insights and not raw data. You can display calculations and derivatives from your data on our dashboard. It's Excel for IoT.

✅ Advanced alerts and recommendations

In addition to the core modules, IoT Suite provides robust APIs and an extensions engine to enable 3rd-party modules. Below are sample extension modules developed by Koidra.

🏭 Web-based PLC and decision support system. This module provides a flexible and user-friendly interface for the production operators to define their control strategies in a simple yet powerful way, as writing Excel formulas. These operators can easily update and improve their control strategies over time and are no longer constrained by the cluterred graphical user interface (often with many windows, menus, and submenus) in legacy SCADA systems.
🌱 Digital Twin. Build on the improved data collection from the IoT Suite to unlock more data about your growing environment and plants. The Digital Twin combines the data collected from IoT sensors with physics-informed machine learning to predict crop growth metrics, such as photosynthesis and transpiration, in real time. Growers can visualize this data in easy-to-read graphs on our dashboard, and get an inside look into how their plants are performing or are affected by the current conditions.
🚀 λutoPilot. Optimal real-time-data-driven decision-making is key in maximizing the benefits of greenhouses and indoor farms. λutoPilot is an autonomous farm solution that enables growers to (a) manage larger growing areas with ease by automating many tedious tasks, overall allotting more time to focus on other important business matters, and (b) achieve higher yield while minimizing resource usage, thus improving the economic viability and sustainability of production.

Data Ownership and Security

Data ownership. Using Koidra’s IoT Suite platform, you get to own your data. We only manage and secure your IoT data on your behalf. We’re committed to destroying your data if you don’t continue using our platform.

💡

It is a misleading yet common practice that data ownership is frequently ignored in enterprise software contracts. Consequentially, the data is owned by the vendors and not by the clients.

Due to the data ownership policy, your data is kept for unlimited number of years. It’s your data and your data should never get lost or pruned.

Security. We take enterprise software security seriously. Our platform supports Single-Sign-On (SSO) for both Microsoft and Google accounts.
