Improving Equipment Monitoring and Maintenance

.NET
Oil and Gas

The customer

Operating globally, the company is a leading provider of process safety management technologies to the petrochemical, as well as oil and gas industries. Headquartered in the USA, the organization has offices in the Asia Pacific and MENA regions.

The need

One of the plants our customer was serving had a paper-based process of monitoring equipment. To report data to operators, field workers manually took equipment readings, which was time-consuming and inefficient.

Relying on expertise at Altoros, the company wanted to build a system that would allow field workers to instantly fill out equipment readings, while ensuring video and audio connection with operators. The system had to be delivered in tight deadlines, as the customer intended to pitch it to one of the world’s largest petrochemical companies.

The challenges

Under the project, the team at Altoros had to address the following issues:

  • Video and audio connection between field workers and operators had to be enabled in the conditions of blocked Internet at the plant.
  • The field workers must be able to scan QR codes placed on the equipment and collect such data as a serial number, model, etc.

The solution

Developers at Altoros built a solution comprising a web system for operators and a mobile application for field workers. Employing WebRTC, our engineers enabled video and audio connection. In order to provide such functionality without the Internet, team at Altoros emulated the STUN and TURN servers in the Intranet.With the ZXing library, experts at Altoros implemented QR code scanning.Finally, our developers enabled the system to track field workers at the plant and display them on the map. In addition, our team made it possible to transfer files—.pdf, .docx, etc.—between a web system and a mobile application.

The outcome

Partnering with Altoros, the customer built a system that facilitated equipment monitoring. In the conditions of blocked Internet due to security reasons, the solution is capable of providing video and audio communication between field workers and operators. Thanks to the development being completed in just two months, the customer was able to get funding from one of the world’s largest petrochemical companies.
