The increasing demand for air travel, the expansion of airline fleets to accommodate a larger number of passengers, and the rising number of flight movements have led to a reduction of the ground time to increase the efficiency of their fleet. Airlines are not only hiring additional employees but are also looking to increase the efficiency of their aircraft fleet by adding new travel routes. Traditional airlines operating medium-haul routes fly 7–14 hours approximately per day. In contrast, LCCs aiming to maximize the aircraft fleet efficiency implement intensive short-haul flight schedules, which sometimes double the flying time as compared to the industry average.
The term ‘smart factory’ refers to the various fully integrated automation solutions adopted for manufacturing facilities. Such integration helps in streamlining the material flow during all the processes involved in the manufacturing, thus enabling effective movement of materials across the factory floor. Several manufacturing companies are capable of achieving zero waste production and shorter time-to-market. Effortless monitoring, reduction of waste and speed of production are some of the major advantages of automated manufacturing processes. This technology offers users an improved quality of standardization, as well as dependable products, within the time and at much lower cost.
The usage of labels has increased manifold across many end-use sectors. Factors like technology and cost continue to drive changes in the labeling industry. Businesses have become aware of the potential for profit and the impact of consumer interaction on the success of a product. With numerous options in the marketplace, brand and label recognition is essential, especially to capture the customer’s attention.
Continuous monitoring of patients’ parameters such as heart rate and rhythm, respiratory rate, blood oxygen saturation, electrocardiogram, blood pressure (BP), and many other parameters have increasingly become important for critically ill patients in healthcare settings. Patient monitoring systems are used to continuously monitor the patient’s vital signs. During treatment, it is highly important to monitor the vital physiological signs of patients continuously. Therefore, there is a high demand for patient monitoring devices in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The continuous improvement of technologies not only improved the access of medical personnel to patients’ vital signs but has also simplified the diagnostic process and, as a result, has risen the monitoring efficiency of patients.
