  4. 4. ABB joins Sustainable Underground Mining ABB is bringing its electrification and automation knowledge to the ambitious Sustainable Underground Mining (SUM) project. LKAB is leading the initiative, a collaboration with ABB, Combitech, Epiroc and Sandvik to design new working methods that will create a safe, zero- carbon dioxide emission mine of the future, where productivity is increased by 50 percent. Autonomous production and transport tests are already underway in LKAB’s mine in northern Sweden and a virtual mine. “ABB is integral to the next step, which is to build a demonstration workshop to connect electrical and automation systems that have so far been developed for this challenging project,” said Jan Nyqvist, Global Product Manager for Underground Mining Automation at ABB. The solutions are due to be installed by 2022, and the new cleaner, safer and more efficient standard for mining deployed globally by 2030. Read full article Copyright © 2021 Accenture.

  5. 5. 5 Honeywell acquires Sparta for $1.3 billion Read full article Honeywell has announced that it is buying Sparta Systems, a company that provides enterprise quality management software (QMS) to the life sciences industry. Sparta software such as TrackWise Digital and QualityWise.aiSM will be integrated with Honeywell Forge to help life sciences customers achieve better quality results, including new therapies and faster time to market. Honeywell will further enhance the offering with AI and IoT connectivity. "Our combined offerings will make it easier for customers to gain critical insights from manufacturing and quality data that can improve their manufacturing processes while ensuring product quality, patient safety, and supply chain continuity," said Que Dallara, President and Chief Executive Officer of Honeywell Connected Enterprise. The integration will begin in life sciences, before Honeywell expands its capabilities to adjacent industries. Copyright © 2021 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  6. 6. 6 Cummins launches connected truck engine Read full article Cummins has released its first connected X15 Efficiency series engine for the Cascadia line of Freightliner trucks. The engine’s computing module, Acumen, enables automated product updates and provides access to digital apps. GPS-enabled predictive travel features also help the trucks save on fuel by reducing journey times. Engine data can be shared with Cummins and Freightliner so the companies can gain a better understanding of operational efficiencies and how to enhance them using machine learning and customized services that increase uptime and reduce costs.

  7. 7. 7 Konecranes partners with The Ocean Cleanup Konecranes has joined with the Dutch nonprofit to design and manufacture an anti-plastic pollution system. The Interceptor extracts plastic from rivers before it can reach the ocean. The Ocean Cleanup plans to target the world’s 1000 most polluting rivers, and has already deployed Interceptors in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Dominican Republic. A fourth device will be installed in Vietnam this year, and Konecranes is manufacturing two more at its Malaysia facility. The new Interceptors will be operational in May 2021. Konecranes will oversee the installation and maintenance of the Interceptors and help scale them globally. The Ocean Cleanup is modifying the Interceptors with upgrades to the conveyor, shuttle and barge systems with the help of MHE-Demag. Read full article Copyright © 2021 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  8. 8. 8 Continental launches digital tire monitoring Read full article Automotive-maker Continental has launched ContiConnect Live, a digital tire monitoring solution. The system works in tandem with ContiPressureCheck and ContiConnect Yard to collect data on tire pressure and temperature and upload it to the cloud in real time. ContiConnect Live also uses GPS data to clock how many hours the tires have been operational. The system helps reduce vehicle downtime and increases safety by preempting any future maintenance issues. Fleet operators can oversee vehicle conditions remotely and are automatically notified if tire conditions are not ideal. Copyright © 2021 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  9. 9. BlackBerry and AWS accelerate in-vehicle innovation Read full article Amazon Web Services (AWS) and BlackBerry have partnered to develop a scalable, cloud-based smart vehicle solution. BlackBerry's Intelligent Vehicle Data Platform (IVY) will provide automakers with a secure way to analyze sensor data in the vehicle and in the cloud. Machine learning will help transform those insights into new in- vehicle services that better respond to driver and passenger needs. This could range from alerting drivers to hazardous conditions and recommending safety features, to sharing car battery data with charging networks so that charge points can be automatically reserved. Uniquely, IVY will support multiple vehicle operating systems and is compatible across different models and brands. This will significantly reduce the time it takes for vehicle markers to gather, analyze and act on data by building new features. 9 Copyright © 2021 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  10. 10. Goodyear and SafeAI launch smart tire venture Read full article Goodyear and SafeAI have partnered to build smart tires for autonomous heavy equipment vehicles. SafeAI’s autonomous ecosystem will be integrated with Goodyear’s TPMS Heavy Duty sensors in a Caterpillar 725 ADT at a construction site in Cupertino, California. The sensors will record pressure and temperature, along with other aspects critical to tire function and safety. SafeAI’s ecosystem can instantly alert site managers to any potential maintenance issues before the tires place projects and people at risk. The ultimate aim is to eliminate unplanned vehicle downtime and create a smarter, safer work environment, where projects are always completed on time and on budget. Goodyear will use data gained from the collaboration to help inform future innovations in autonomous and heavy equipment. 10 Copyright © 2021 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  11. 11. 11 Balfour Beatty aims to cut emissions by 80% Read full article Balfour Beatty is collaborating with Sunbelt and Invisible Systems on a system that reduces energy output on construction sites by up to 80%. EcoNet works by limiting energy use wherever possible, automatically turning off appliances or equipment when they are not in use. It means that if demand is high elsewhere on a construction site, resources can be diverted only where they are absolutely necessary, reducing pressure on the grid and local diesel generators. Balfour Beatty began trialing the technology in May 2020 at its East Leeds Orbital Route project. After just six months, carbon emissions were cut by 83%. The site ran solely on the grid, effectively managed electric vehicle charging, and optimized heating, hot water and external lighting schedules. Copyright © 2021 Accenture. All rights reserved.
