A better way to manage water with the Internet of Things

Smart Water

Smarter at every point

Smart water meters are a form of IoT, a network of technologies which can monitor the status of physical objects, capture meaningful data, and communicate that data over a wireless network to a software application for analysis on a computer in the cloud. Technologies are capable of monitoring objects such as smart water meters and other electronic devices, organisms or a natural part of the environment such as an area of ground to be measured for moisture or chemical content. A smart device is associated with each object which provides the connectivity and a unique digital identity for identifying, tracking and communicating with the object. A sensor within or attached to the device is connected to the Internet by a local area connection (such as RFID, NFC or BTLE) and can also have wide area connectivity. Typically, each data transmission from a device is small in size but the number of transmissions can be frequent.

Smart Water Sensors: In almost every building, a maze of pipes exist in them that are hidden from view. These pipes carry fresh water into the building and take the waste out. As these pipes are hidden from view, it is often difficult to detect leaks and often when a leak is detected, the pipe has probably already been leaking for some time. Smart connected sensors that are integrated into the maze of pipes in almost every building can enable immediate detection of leaks that are unseen to the human eye. If a sensor detects water flowage when no water using appliances are running, the sensor can then send an alert to the owner of the building. The owner can then make the necessary repairs. Further, the owner will be able to pinpoint the exact location of the leak based on the sensor’s location.

Smart Irrigation Systems: Irrigation of crops and ornamental plants contributes to over 80% of all water usage in California. As irrigation is the single largest use of water in California, a massive push needs to be made to reduce that percentage while maintaining current production levels. Although the state has taken steps to reduce water used by irrigation, smart irrigation systems leveraging IoT technology can enable the state to conservation to reach a new level. Smart connected sensors that are connected to smart sprinklers leveraging IoT technology will enable just the right amount of water needed for plants to flourish. The smart sensors are embedded in the soil that measures the moisture levels. The sensors then relay this information to the smart sprinkler system and the sprinklers add just the right amount of water.

Measure smarter Preventing non-revenue water loss caused by meter inaccuracy can recover lost revenue and deliver more accurate billing.
Communicate better FlexNet, our expandable communication network, lets you collect data from many endpoints to detect and pinpoint issues throughout your water system.
Analyze easier Sensus analytics are configurable, intuitive and insightful. We help you resolve problems faster to improve efficiency and customer service.

Industrial IoT in Oil & Gas

The Internet of Things for the Oil and Gas Industry: Why Quality Assurance is Critical

IoT

IoT

The shortage of skilled labor has driven industry experts to discover smart alternatives that can drive core business processes with automation and reduced workforce dependency. However, given the magnitude of production equipment, including sensors and digital devices, business automation software alone cannot address the industry’s automation needs.

With its machine to machine (M2M) communication capabilities, the Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving as a potential solution, which can ensure correct, complete, and optimal performance of IoT enabled devices.

To gain actionable business insights in the Oil & Gas industry, the production data needs to be analyzed across upstream, midstream, and downstream processes. However this three step process chain requires smart solutions that extend beyond automation and drive not just core business processes but also ensure regulatory compliance and business results.

With its exponential growth rate, IoT offers great potential for organizations worldwide to unlock value and benefits from devices, systems and services communicating with each other, using the internet as a backbone.

Here’s how IoT enabled sensors can drive production efficiencies for O&G companies:

  • Sensors on drilling machines
  • Interconnected devices and data
  • Sensor data, linked with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems
  • IoT enabled sensors not only facilitate an efficient supply chain, but also accelerate go to market.
  • Safety data from sensors
  • Sensors mounted on equipment

IoT enabled devices and systems can facilitate efficient O&G operations, with minimum human intervention, providing higher value than traditional technology and automation. Correctly implemented IoT solutions hold the potential to introduce efficiencies in upstream, midstream, and downstream operations. IoT sensors deployed across the value chain – from exploration and production, to transportation of crude and refined oil – can bring in the much needed visibility and workplace safety, with better control and maintenance of assets. Many organizations are using IoT enabled sensors and devices to remotely monitor operations, and improve end-to-end processes. While such IoT initiatives hold potential to drive business bottom-line, the industry’s high risk production operations cannot be left dependent on untested and immature technologies. It is pivotal to assure these IoT initiatives – so that they meet their intended purpose. It is here that assurance plays a critical role in validating IoT performance and verifying its correct deployment in production.

IoT enabled devices and sensors generate astronomical volumes of data, which is used to analyze and improve operations. These devices, sensors, and associated applications and underlying data need to be tested for accuracy and correctness. Generating testing data of such a large magnitude is difficult and time consuming. In such a situation, an automated data generator tool should be considered to ensure the effective functionality and performance of these devices. Some important features that should be considered when selecting an effective test data management tool are:

  • Quality: It should generate realistic test data that not only maintains referential integrity and business rules, but also seamlessly preserves intricate data patterns.
  • Usability: The tool should automatically read database constraints and include user friendly interfaces for specifying transformations.
  • Data on demand: Data should be readily generated on demand and as per requirements, thereby reducing storage requirements.
  • Data integration: The tools should be equipped to handle large volumes of data from varied geographies, applications and devices, including sensors, handheld equipment, web sources, and social media feeds.
  • Data security: Security measures should be available to prevent unauthorized access, fix vulnerabilities, and mitigate risks and threats from all devices and systems, towards ensuring overall compliance
  • Data validation: Data should be validated for its correctness as per business validation rules.
