Predictive maintenance on rides
Visitor satisfaction is a priority for operators. This depends mainly on the number of attractions open to the public, the waiting time, the quality of the attraction (scenery, enchantment, thrills etc.).
Today, about 11,000 sensors on each ride provide information on the condition of the engine, brakes and structure. When the motor of a roller-coaster starts to weaken, no one knows that a motor problem is occurring. This problem usually leads to a gradual stop of the motor, however the roller-coaster works until the motor stops completely. At that moment, the sensors trigger an alert and the ride is closed to the public. When the roller-coaster breaks down, it must be immediately evacuated.
Then, the maintenance teams can take over to repair the engine. On average, it takes 4 days from the beginning of engine weakening to failure. Maintenance operators deal with the dissatisfaction of visitors, who have a reduced choice of attractions for the same admission price regardless of the number of attractions open.
Edge computing benefits
Analyze high volume video data
The installation of a camera tunnel requires very high computing power to analyze large volumes of video data in real time. Indeed, cameras scan products at 360 degrees, which produces 1GIGA BITS of data per minute. This type of analysis from workforce would be extremely costly and time-consuming. Edge computer vision uses deep learning algorithms to analyze video data flows, using the computing power of the BullSequana Edge.
Decide in real time
Real-time decision speeds up the production process. BullSequana Edge allows you to obtain information on a defective product 22x faster. Here, critical lead times on quality control chains are optimized 24H 7/7.
Data storage and analysis cost in the cloud is significant for high volume and complex data. Thanks to local and autonomous storage and analysis, BullSequana Edge allows lower costs. Data is sent to the cloud for mid-long term storage and monitoring.
Secure data locally
Intrusion detection and data encryption systems protect your data from external threats.
