This paper presents how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the course of the mobile robotics market, showing the status of mobile robots in three stages: before, during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. By analyzing these stages, it is possible to estimate what awaits this market in the future. From the many applications of mobile robots found during the COVID- 19 pandemic, as will be shown later, it is clear that mobile robots will be an important part of the future influencing the accelerated growth of their market and development.
This paper describes the design and functioning by stages that compose the environmental and electric parameter recollecting device for research Purposes, energetic efficiency, that take place in the production of electric energy using a photovoltaic panel. The device has a local storage through an uSD memory card and remote cloud storage. The device is classified as an IoT device. The information can be accessed through a mobile app. It has temperature, UV rays, light, current, voltage and power sensors. A prototype of the device has been constructed and the results of this prototype are shown in a display and the electric variables were compared using a calibrated multimeter.
The use of SCADA systems in modern industrial processes represents a high cost to the industrial sector due to licensing payments, difficulty in connecting to RTUs from different manufacturers, support only for industrial communication protocols and limited scalability when using a structured database. In this work, a low cost SCADA system was developed, with the possibility of connecting to an RTU based on IoT technology that makes universal communication with field devices through TCP / IP and supported on a NoSQL database. We also evaluate its functionality on a traffic management process incorporating as semaphore field device, which demonstrates the versatility of the solution with response times comparable to those of any commercial alternative.
