With the ever-growing demand for energy supply, the industrial IoT has the potential to transform its intelligent production and distribution. Whether production includes oil, natural gas, solar, or wind, visibility to the process is key to driving efficiency, safety and cost. Part of the challenge is understanding what data to measure and collect.
From extraction and harvesting to processing and transport, all aspects of energy can be optimized using smart, connected systems that operate securely and autonomously, and providing real-time, mission-critical analysis. For example, oil and gas incorporate digital broadband communications systems to collect a plethora of operational data for field operators, management and third-party contractors. All this data drives KPIs around production, safety and operations.
Today’s technologies allow for the collection of vast amounts of reliable, real-time data from the field sites, which reduces “windshield time” and the need for additional personnel. Digitalization has allowed for more coverage with less manpower. But managers currently have to switch between multiple applications to get a robust data set necessary to determine actual conditions in the field. They rely on this information to allocate resources to achieve critical goals such as production efficiency, operational assurance, asset protection, worker and environmental safety.
Integrating multiple streams of production data and video into a single screen is just one example of an IoT solution RUMBLE can provide. Through its situational awareness software, field operators can assess conditions across their entire production environment by looking at data combined on a single dashboard.
The energy market’s complex network of sensors, communication systems, protocols, edge computing, security and cloud computing necessitate the need to work with professionals with experience and expertise in all aspects of IoT, from sensor to cloud. RUMBLE provides the custom end-to-end IoT solutions modern energy manufacturing market requires.
