  • Condition based monitoring: Use your data to monitor the status of your equipment. Detect water leak, vibrations, difference in pressure, humidity in pipe-work, control temperature or prevent corrosion.
  • Plant or building condition sensors: Sensors enable real-time monitoring of air quality, temperature, lightning or even occupancy at your plant or other buildings.
  • Drones & robots Drone images provide an overview of the activities at your plant. Robots and cobots on the other hand automate repetitive tasks.
  • Chatbots & virtual assistants are your customer’s assistants of the future.
