Every machine produces logs. Even those escalators and elevators at your favorite mall or office space. Here’s what will happen next. Those escalators will talk to a forecaster sitting at a remote location,and transmit data that will be tremendously valuable for their own maintenance.

Typical messages that are getting collected include information on wear and tear of mechanical parts, peak load times, usages of interactive controls, activation of alarms and safety thresholds, and so on.
