Connected Worker

Enabling Workers to Collaborate Safely & Efficiently from Remote Locations

It is widely recognized that the volume of available data has grown, and continues to grow, exponentially. However, organizations are seeking ways to better interpret meaningful information from all the data generated from disparate IT/OT systems. The ways in which industrial organizations visualize and distribute that information to key personnel is also a significant challenge.

Connected Worker: Safe Real-time Critical Decision Making

CBT’s Connected Worker solution was built from the ground up to directly address these challenges. It utilizes tailored software combinations enabled on wearable devices, smartphones, and tablets to provide an effective way for field workers to visualize, consume and communicate actionable information. It gives maintenance and operations teams the tools they need to assess operations performance so they can make critical decisions safely, in real-time, and at the actual point of work.

Connected Worker As A Service

CBT’s Connected Worker is also the only solution of its kind to be offered as a service. This means customers have the option to purchase all hardware and wearable devices, software, integration, professional services, and training for one low monthly cost.

How CBT Uses RealWear to Implement Industrial IoT

CB Technologies’ Founder & CEO, Kelly Ireland, sits down to discuss the importance of our relationship with RealWear. This video was made at the RealWear Summit where CB Technologies was a Platinum Sponsor and gave presentations on implementing Idustrial IoT technologies at Texmark’s Refinery of the Future.

CB Technologies Becomes Inaugural CEI Member at HPE Discover 2019

June has been a big month for the CBT team, sponsoring and exhibiting at three major national conferences over the first three weeks of the month. After attending PTC LiveWorx, June 10-13, we headed straight out to Las Vegas for HPE Discover.HPE Discover is more focused on information technology (IT) than LiveWorx, but our goals remained the same: demonstrate that our methodology for Industrial IoT is unique and effective. We wanted to show that CBT is truly ahead of the crowd because of ou…

Object detection technology: The next big thing

Seagate Technology inspects tens of millions of computer storage drive parts daily. The media that goes into them. The heads. The wafers. The completed assemblies and outer shells. For much of the company’s history, this inspection was a time-consuming and costly process. To achieve the quality the global company’s customers expect, hard disk and solid-state drives would be tested once, twice, or even three times before human beings gave them a final blessing in what’s known as sequential in…

What the intelligent edge is and why it’s useful

The term “Intelligent Edge” is used in many ways, but perhaps the best way to think of it is as a place. The edge is where the action is. It’s a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, your house, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a telecommunications outpost, a sports arena, a battlefield, in your car, in the sky, or under the sea. It’s everywhere everything is, and it’s where the “things” are in the Internet of Things (IoT). The edge is “intelligent” because …

Edge computing yields deeper insights, faster

Edge computing drives smarter operations in every industry. Learn how. There are many different kinds of edges: a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a sports arena, and more. Massive amounts of data are created and can be collected and analyzed at every edge. When used in context, and in a timely manner, this real-time data can yield all sorts of interesting insights. Edge computing use cases include: Improving saf…
