THK seeking partner for stable wireless communication

Deadline: March 8, 2024

THK recently introduced a new IIoT solution called OMNI edge, a condition monitoring AI system for industrial equipment and components.  It uses our proprietary AI algorithm to detect abnormally for predictive maintenance.  One of our solutions is a condition monitoring system for rotary equipment.  It consists of sensors, a router and cloud application.  We currently use WiFi for a wireless communication from the sensors to the router, which then uses cellular network to send sensor data to our cloud application.

We are looking for a startup who can help us with establishing more stable wireless communication between the sensor and the router either by implementing:

  1. technology solutions to the devices themselves that create a stable connection environment free from any interferences, or
  2. features such as signal monitoring tool that provides customers a visibility to connection status/stability

Criteria for stable wireless communication

・Using existing wireless communication protocols (e.g.IEEE802.11n/ac) 

・2.4GHz, 5GHz connection 

・Ability to resend data. No need for real time, continuous communication.

For selected startups, the scope of partnership could include any or all of the following:

  • THK as a customer (i.e. purchasing their existing technology)
  • Joint development
  • Technology licensing partnership
