IoT ENERGY AND UTILITIES
The Energy and Utilities and Oil and Gas industry has a very critical role to play amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. While several businesses have consciously taken the decision to revise their workplace models, the E&U and O&G industries have to work overtime to ensure the power needs of communities are met 24 x 7, uninterrupted.
On the other hand, the high rate of COVID-19’s spread puts workers in this industry under increased risk of contracting the disease. This puts the E&U and O&G industries in the unique position of having to maintain business continuity despite being faced with a considerable shortage of deployable resources.
IoT WoRKSTM has crafted solutions aimed at enabling the E&U and O&G industries to tide over the planned reduction in deployable resources through the use of Augmented Reality technology, safely monitor on-field workforce in real-time, through sensor based wearable devices.
The AR-Assisted Field Services solution enables adherence to social distancing norms as it reduces critical workforce requirements, utilizing remote monitoring and step-by-step guidance to enhance capabilities and skills. As the solution is hands-free, it also minimizes the risk of spread through physical contact.
The Worker Safety solution, designed for workforce deployed in dangerous conditions, continuously helps monitor ambient conditions through sensors and communication fitted on wearables. The solution also enables location tracking, thus allowing optimal resource planning and operations in line with the COVID-19 norms.
The Live Social Distancing Monitoring (LSDM) solution combines radar sensors, AI models and easily retrofittable distributed architecture, that can provide real-time locational insights on workforce movements, identify potential hotspots, generate alerts that can help businesses proactively optimize their operations, monitor occupancy and ensure disease free premises.
AR-Assisted Field Services solution can reduce service costs by 35-60%, including optimization of workforce training costs, dramatically reduced error rates, downtimes, and unplanned maintenance and repair.
Worker Safety solution, through its round-the-clock monitoring and communication with field personnel, can reduce reconciliation times by close to 80% (before and after blasts).
LSDM solution enables businesses to automate social distancing – thus reimagining zero-contact premises, helping restore business continuity and operational profitability – and most importantly, ensuring real-time monitoring and maintenance of people and workforce safety.
These three solutions, therefore, are indispensable to the COVID-19 situation where maintaining workplace safety, minimal contact, and social distancing norms are crucial to restoring business continuity.
