Industry 4.0 solutions refer to a range of technologies and processes that use automation and digitization to improve efficiency and productivity in manufacturing and other industrial sectors.
These solutions include the implementation of sensors on equipment to monitorperformance and maintenance, the use of robots and artificial intelligence systems to optimize production, the use of cloud technologies and data analytics to improve decision making and production planning.
The Helix Robot is a family of autonomous amphibious robots capable of collecting data and samples in hazardous environments. These robots are especially useful in environmental monitoring and tailings research. The patented screw thrusters enable flotation and its helical claw acts as a propeller when rotating at high speed in the water. At low speed, the vehicle can crawl through soft mud deposits or act as a wheel on hard ground. The robots are equipped with autonomous navigation technology and can be remotely controlled up to 2 km. Applications include water analysis, in situ water characterization, tailings and sediment sampling, geophysical investigation and equipment salvage, among others.
SUSTAINABLE ENERGY PRODUCTION IN AGRICULTURE
Agrivoltaics is a technology that consists of installing solar panels on arable land to generate renewable energy. It also can regulate the amount of sunlight that crops receive, reduce water evaporation, and protect them from extreme weather conditions, such as frost or heavy rain. The mobile solar panels also create shade in times of excessive radiation, which benefits the quality and quantity of the fruit, increasing farmers' income. This technology can be used in dams to block direct radiation and eliminate algae blooms. In addition, renewable energy generation occurs in a decentralized manner and close to pumping and water filtration systems, allowing growers to reduce costs and achieve energy self-sufficiency.
GREEN HYDROGEN SOLUTIONS
Mass-produced AEM Electrolyzers and Batteries can be stacked to achieve any size, from kilowatts to megawatts, through a standardized approach that allows mass production of electrolyzers and their cores to serve modular and scalable projects. The Electrolyzer Base Unit is equipped with sensors to measure flow rate, temperature, and pressure, allowing detailed and granular monitoring of the condition of the assembly. The Hydrogen Battery is the first integrated hybrid battery that combines solar power to supply sustainable, reliable, and renewable green energy to homes and industries in a modular and scalable format. The battery can store over 40kWh of electricity and is three times more efficient than lithium batteries.
PROTECTING WATER AND PROCESSES WITH REAL-TIME DATA
2S Water's AquaValid sensor detects and quantifies metals in real time, which can result in operational savings of 30% in chemical costs and increase the amount of recycled water in facilities, reducing freshwater consumption. The technology can help optimize processes and maximize yield by eliminating wasted time, resources, unnecessary expenses, obstacles, and errors.
WIRELESS SOLUTIONS FOR INTELLIGENT OPERATIONS
Wireless real-time data acquisition technology is used for automated subway and surface monitoring in projects such as mining, tunneling and road works. In addition, real-time monitoring provides benefits such as occupational safety, risk management, cost reduction and increased productivity. The technology enables continuous monitoring of most types of industrial sensors through a reliable wireless data network that transmits data over an established Mesh network to the user´s software.
ALGAE CONTROL SYSTEM
The proliferation of algae in bodies of water, both in continents and oceans, is a problem that affects the use of this resource due to climate change. To address this situation, we have an algae control system that is autonomous in terms of energy and is responsible for reducing the concentration of algae using ultrasound technology.
