Thin-Track, a disruptive innovation for the Internet of Things, based on Cyberobjects

Cyberobjects are made of : 1) physical objects / assets 2) their individual software intelligence hosted anywhere (Cloud, server, etc.)

Based on a distributed intelligence architecture, Thin-Track will make your objects / assets your assistants in the management or monitoring of your complex processes. And if your processes does not rely on any organization, Thin-Track just handles operations as they occurs and not as, ideally, they should be.

Thin-Track® is a software engine that Tracks and Traces objects in both structured and unstructured areas then significantly enhances stock or assets flow management as it exists today.

It can either be a complementary solution of existing systems : WMS, TMS, ERP, etc. ; or a stand-alone tool in case there is not any similar software in place.

Unstructured areas are generally used without formal procedures, therefore rarely monitored by any Information System : downgraded management mode, or no management at all. Such areas does not have any spatial organization: neither ground/cell references nor cheaper geolocalization possibilities.

But which can do more can do less, Thin-Track® also allows a dynamic and real-time management of structured (organized) storage areas, giving end users monitoring capabilities they couldn’t access so far.

Dans certaines définitions de l’Internet des Objets, « il est parfois suggéré que l'objet deviendra un acteur autonome de l'Internet, c'est-à-dire capable de percevoir, analyser et agir par lui-même dans les contextes des processus dans lesquels il sera engagé. Le couple "objet physique" / "Intelligence virtuelle associée", qu'elle soit embarquée, distribuée ou hébergée dans le Cloud, y est alors mentionné sous l’appellation "cyberobjet". Les cyberobjets sont des acteurs potentiels des chaines de valeurs qui agissent sous le contrôle des opérationnels ou en partenariat avec eux. » (Source Wikipedia, septembre 2011).

What a "Warehouse Management System" could be in the Internet of Things ?....


NEWTON: space is already organized, time is a linear dimension, common to everything and objects which are populating space are studied with a prior understanding of the unique organization of the universe.

In that scheme, a WMS (Warehouse Management System) problem is: how to organize space then how to populate it accordingly - then how to find things in it - then how to realign the virtual idea of the reality (information system) with reality (since it always diverges!).


EINSTEIN/PLANCK: space isn’t organized a priori. It changes and becomes organized with the auto-organization of the objects which are populating it and time is a dimension that can change, depending on the objects, the organization of objects, etc. But organization isn’t always the same!

In that scheme, the problem of a WMS becomes: how to model the dynamic organization of objects, considering their autonomous behavior and the interoperability between them? The problem of finding them is then different: when we need to find an object, we just ask the object itself...

At www.business2any.com, that's the way we are thinking (and building) the future of the Internet...

L'Internet des objets doit encore apprendre à interpréter

Sans intelligence logicielle associée opérant à un niveau subsidiaire pendant leur cycle de vie, les objets ne pourront catalyser de nouveaux usages. Le web sera le véhicule de cette intelligence d'un système à l'autre.

Which economic model for the Internet of Things ?

If things come to bear their “raison d'être" (see former post: http://www.i-o-t.org/post/3questionstoPhilippeGAUTIERbyDavidFayon), it may be necessary to give or teach them new ethical values, otherwise they will catalyze some (already existing) chaos in our economic systems ...

Internet des Objets et relations "producteurs-consommateurs"

Objectifs de cet exposé :

  • Ne pas donner une vision “boule de cristal”
  • La “révolution” à venir est trop “profonde” pour en appréhender – à date - les bénéfices les plus importants
  • Donner les clés de compréhension des opportunités à venir
  • Avoir les outils pour déceler les opportunités et bénéfices de cette “révolution”
