Use of Advanced Sensors in Smart Industry Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ST Microelectronics

In industrial systems, sensors can give us real-time information about the condition and operation critical machinery. By monitoring vibration, temperature, and other factors, we can get early warning of failures and do predictive maintenance - avoiding costly downtime. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Manuel Cantone of ST Microelectronics about the SensorTile Wireless Industrial Node - an integrated solution that makes industrial monitoring a snap.
