Real-Time IoT Monitoring System Developed to Track Water Quality Conditions

Real-Time IoT Monitoring System Developed to Track Water Quality Conditions

We were inspired by the work Project Clarity was doing to remediate the water quality issues of Lake Macatawa and the Macatawa Watershed that flow into Lake Michigan. Through our inspiration to contribute to this cause, we saw an opportunity to leverage the Internet of Things (IOT) to help achieve this goal. “The Macatawa Watershed has long suffered from high levels of suspended sediment and the nutrient phosphorus in its waterways” said Dan Callam of Project Clarity. “Through this project we plan to leverage the power of wireless technology to provide a clearer picture of how conditions change during our work of reducing these factors by 70 percent.”

Over the past couple of years more and more “things” are being connected, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is now often referred to as the “Internet of Everything.” More specifically, cloud computing is widely adopted across industries, and is still popular in many applications; but recently, there has been a shift toward edge computing for IoT applications.

Secure the Future with Innovation Excellence

Secure the Future with Innovation Excellence

The majority of companies understand the importance of innovation, but it continues to be challenging for company leaders to effectively promote it within their organization. Innovation can be difficult because it requires thinking differently with a unique, fresh perspective and discipline. It requires knowledge and understanding of a process with tools and methods. Innovation has been seen to enhance growth, performance, and valuation; yet most companies, in our opinion, continue to be overly focused on operational excellence.

IoT Drives Strategic Growth for Limelight Through Transformative Product

Those familiar with the term “IoT” are probably familiar with the prediction that the world will have 50 billion connected devices by 2020. A decade ago, this number was much smaller and the now popular IoT buzz-word, was not commonly used. Even so, this did not keep Twisthink from believing that innovative products and services needed to be created by combining intuitive design with transformative technology. This is why we made a significant investment in the belief that growth comes through innovation.
Back in 2008, Twisthink saw an opportunity to bring value to the lighting industry by using the power of connectivity to create a sustainable and safe environment.
