Posted by Zedi News on Mar 5, 2018 4:16:37 PM

An article in the Permian Basin Oil and Gas Magazine featured Zedi in an article on machine learning and advancements in IT in the oil and gas sector.

The article features Richard Link, Senior Market Manager for Software Solutions, who speaks to Zedi's current capabilities with alarming and how the technology today is much more advanced than a simple alarm saying something is wrong. By comparing historical data against alarms to "teach" the machines. The articles quotes Link by saying "We're setting up scenarios that push the system outside of its normal parameters and we're letting the software learn all of that; learn whats normal so that it can determine what an alarm is."

The article also speaks to the large amount of data available in today's oil and gas climate, and the importance of having that data in formats that are shareable between systems.

Zedi's Manager, Customer Solutions Engineering, Adin Nand, was quoted in an article in the PB Oil and Gas on the rise of I.T. in the Oil and Gas industry. He speaks specifically to how the IT revolution is also about connecting man to machine. 

Adin is quoted saying "Any company in IoT [Internet of Things] who wants to be successful has to be able to display [data] in reports, trends, KPIs, [and] tables, [as well as] export for investors, people that can look at it in real time from a maintenance perspective. We call that the human to machine interface, the HMI. That’s very important.”

Zedi Leverages its IIoT to Diversify into the AgriFood and Food Service Industries

Posted by Zedi News on Aug 8, 2017 2:49:03 PM

Calgary, AB – (August 8, 2017) – Zedi Inc. is pleased to announce the first three applications of its Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform into the AgriFood industry.

The first positions Zedi’s IIoT platform capabilities in primary production with livestock, and involves monitoring important information on feed, water supply and living conditions on a 45,000 chicken operation on a farm in Montana.  All data collected reports into Zedi Access™, Zedi’s cloud-based application, and Zedi Go, Zedi’s mobile App for iOS and Android. This enables the farm operators to be more responsive should feed run low, or living conditions deteriorate through alarms by exception.

The second application uses Zedi’s IIoT platform capabilities in primary production, on the crop side of the business. Zedi has paired its Zedi Mote Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) technology with third-party soil moisture and temperature sensors to monitor conditions on a 640-acre farm in Nebraska. The sensors and Zedi Motes are powered from AA batteries, and communicate through a LPWAN hotspot to a Zedi IIoT Gateway located nearby, which then relays the sensor information to Zedi Access™ and Zedi Go. This enables the farm operator better insight into the need for water application, saving them money on pivot irrigation costs.

The final application involves asset monitoring in the Food and Beverage service industry in the greater Edmonton area. Zedi has used its Zedi Mote LPWAN technology to allow Food dispensing machines to communicate through an LPWAN hotspot to a Zedi IIoT Gateway located nearby, and report important operational information to Zedi Access and Zedi Go. This enables technical service staff to monitor fill levels of consumable inputs and machine performance, allowing them to better manage servicing strategy. It helps reduce call-out costs and improve uptime for the client, enhancing revenue generation of the machine.

All three applications leverage Zedi’s 15 years of experience in gathering sensor-sourced asset performance data as well as their ongoing innovation in LPWAN technology. These sectors are expected to drive significant traffic growth on the Zedi Platform, which as of July 31, 2017 monitors 1.42 million sensors, and consumes 49 million readings per day.

In Canada and the US the primary agriculture, input dealers, and equipment suppliers represent $420 billion in annual GDP (2016 figures). Canada is the world’s 5th largest Agriculture and AgriFood System (AAFS) exporter, while the US is 2nd. In its February 2017 tranche of reports, the Advisory Council on Economic Growth highlighted the AgriFood sector as a high-potential sector for Canada, and challenges facing the AgriFood industry throughout North America – traceability for food quality and nutrition, productivity, GHG reduction, sustainability in the face of climate change – can all benefit from the application of IIoT technology like Zedi’s as part of the “Smart Agriculture” transformation.
