  • Publication number: 20220191284
    Abstract: Systems and associated methods for monitoring an industrial setting using sensor kits in communication with a backend system via a communication gateway are disclosed. Each sensor kit can have a set of sensors that are registered to respective industrial settings and configured to monitor physical characteristics of the industrial settings. The communication gateway can communicate instances of sensor values from the sensor kits to a backend system. The backend system can process the instances of sensor values to monitor the industrial setting, wherein upon receiving registration data for a sensor kit to an industrial setting, the backend system automatically configures and populates a dashboard for an owner or operator of the industrial setting, wherein the dashboard provides monitoring information that is based on the instances of sensor values for the industrial setting.

  • Publication number: 20220191285
    Abstract: A system and associated method configured for monitoring an industrial setting is disclosed. The sensor kit can include an edge device and a plurality of sensors that capture sensor data and transmit the sensor data via a self-configuring sensor kit network. At least one sensor can capture sensor measurements and output instances of sensor data, generate and output reporting packets, and transmit the reporting packets to the edge device via the self-configuring sensor kit network in accordance with a first communication protocol. The edge device receives reporting packets from the plurality of sensors via the self-configuring sensor kit network, generates a data block based on the sensor data, and transmits the data block to one or more node computing devices that collectively store a distributed ledger that is comprised of a plurality of data blocks.
