Any asset issue requires immediate human intervention. That intervention can be slow and sometimes misguided. Utilities spend a lot of money rolling crews to wrong locations and not getting to the right location until after an outage.
Goals and Objectives
Assets that can self-diagnose not only themselves, but other assets within their system visibility. These systems can then reroute, shed load, or shut down to avoid cascading failures. This increases uptime and reduces the cost of prematurely failing assets.
Sensors, smart assets, networks, analytical tools, data management, cognitive, cloud
Use Case Summary
Assets monitor themselves and their peers and react to reroute, shed load, or shut down to minimize outage and asset damage
