Data is aggregated from the company’s smart devices across an entire work site and forwarded to the cloud via an Intel Atom processor-based gateway. The gateway also filters data based on defined rules and conducts local edge analytics and visualization using Intel software. The solution also supports multiple connectivity protocols, including Wi-Fi and 3G. It enables organizations in energy, manufacturing, construction, warehousing, field services, utilities, and public safety to increase productivity and improve safety. Capabilities include: predicting imminent threats; responding to potential man down or lone worker emergencies; sending warnings and alerts in cases of gas toxicity; sending notifications when there are imminent weather risks; geo-fencing workers to monitor safety and keep communication lines open; providing near-real-time communication to prevent accidents, support productivity, and provide timely training; and tracking worker locations indoors and outdoors.
