Companies are utilizing intelligent underwater robotics to work offshore oil rigs. Drones are being deployed to inspect pipelines and other facilities, and communications, control, and “intelligence” are rapidly being deployed.
Goals and Objectives
Autonomous drones and underwater submersibles do continuous inspection of oil fields, rigs, and equipment to identify infrastructure problems and for security purposes as well. Ideally, robotics and drones will become an integral part of the “data is everywhere,” and networks and systems will include data from all of these devices to feed analytics for automated upstream preventative maintenance.
Analytics, cognitive, communications, sensors, data management
Use Case Summary
Autonomous drones and robots are used for continuous inspection of rigs, wells, and other assets to provide automated maintenance and repair schedules.
