Most expensive IoT platforms forget about the older objects and assume eventually everything will just be replaced. Atomation has created a platform that is affordable and will allow businesses to scale across all objects, even ones as simple as a wooden pallet or utility pole. It is essential for to give businesses only the necessary and meaningful data through Edge Computing. There are the basic reading that work for many use cases such as vibration, temperature, and humidity, and there are additional sensors and calculations that can be tailored to a company's needs.
