“To build a factory that meets demand for one of the world’s most iconic vehicles, you have to be driven. When KUKA Systems Group built a new factory for Jeep Wrangler bodies, it took advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) to create a highly automated plant built on Microsoft technologies that connects as many as 60,000 devices and robots to a central data-management system. By connecting devices and making the most of data, the company created the Internet of KUKA’s Things — and a fast-lane factory that runs like a top.”
“After last year’s costume went absolutely nuts, I had to make a new one that was much, much better. The 2014 version is using digitally addressable LED strips hooked up to an Arduino microcontroller which I programmed (and still learning). It is responsive to sound and has 2 potentiometers and a button in the back of one of the ears for control and a microphone hidden in the front. It has 12 modes and 372 LEDs (124 chips with 3 each).”
