Autonomous drones for inspections
Skysense logo

Skysense offers a solution that enables enterprises to deploy drones for industrial inspection with only minimal human intervention. The drones gather live data from technical assets that are difficult or dangerous to access – such as oil and gas drilling stations and wind turbines – flying through a reusable set of pre-defined waypoints and automatically collecting maintenance data as they go. This is an improvement on current drone deployment technologies, which require a new flight plan to be entered for each flight.

Relevant SAP fields: Predictive Maintenance and Service, and Asset Intelligence Network

Transportation monitoring, prediction and recommendations

Fetch Robotics develops autonomous mobile robots that operate safely in commercial and industrial environments shared by people. SAP is working with the Silicon Valley based company to help customers embrace new opportunities with this new generation of automation called Collaborative Robots combining the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) called. Fetch’s Virtual Conveyor Systems help increase warehouse and manufacturing productivity by quickly and safely automating point to point material transport.  By combining control and optimization of warehouse processes in SAP with Fetch’s Virtual Conveyor, customers can gain the benefits of robotic automation without changing existing warehouse configurations and experience.  Human workers can focus on making sure quality is maintained, while the physical movement of goods through the facility is done by cooperating robots that move safely among them.  SAP customers looking to automate warehouse operations should explore the combined offering from Fetch Robotics and SAP.

Fetch worked with the SAP IoT Startup Accelerator to integrate their platform with the SAP Cloud Platform as well as with cloud and on premise versions of SAP Warehouse Management and SAP Extended Warehouse Management solutions.

Real-time monitoring with wireless, self-powered snap and play sensors
Panoramic Power logo

SAP Customers often do not have the luxury of replacing working equipment in the field with equipment built with the Internet of Things in mind. Helping to find a way for customers to benefit from IoT with the equipment they already own, in a simple and economical manner was the main driver behind the selection of the Palo Alto based startup Panoramic Power to be part of the SAP IoT Startup Accelerator.  

Innovative energy monitoring sensors from Panoramic Power provide a mechanism to give a voice to machine assets that previously were not part of the connected landscape. Panoramic Power’s energy sensors offer a major automotive tire retailer in the US the ability to monitor critical machines in hundreds of stores to improve customer service, avoid un-planned down time, and maximize the useful life of each machine. By monitoring energy consumed by each asset, customers can identify energy wasting practices and machines within each store or location. Identifying these points of waste can often pay for the sensors directly but the value is multiplied when energy can be used to tell us more about how the machine is utilized, especially when combined with other key enterprise data within SAP system in place at the customer. SAP Asset Intelligence Network (SAP AIN) provides the foundation for asset monitoring and asset operations support for SAP customers, the manufacturers that provide the equipment and the service providers and internal teams that support the assets in the field.  SAP AIN on the SAP Cloud Platform directly integrates with Panoramic Power to give voice to each machine regardless of manufacturer or asset age.
