Enhanced control of Industrial Operations at the IoT Edge

 

The ideal place to implement Machine Intelligence based analytics and control for low-latency time-sensitive applications is at the edge of the network – in the Industrial IoT (IIoT) gateway. Such analytics requires precise timestamping of data that is being collected by various sensors for proper sensor fusion.

Mining operations and oil/gas exploration 

  • Microsecond level time accuracy for  ‘Measurement While Drilling’ (MWD) data

  • Time synchronization in GNSS-challenged environments (under ground, under water and indoors)

  • Improved safety in mining operations

  • Improved real-time control of mining equipment

Seismic Land Survey and Acquisition

  • Accurate measurements of ‘Time-Difference-of Arrival’ (TDoA) of reflected signals for offshore and undersea land acquisition

  • Enhanced time precision enables proper study and detection of subsurface formations and deposits
