To check the situation of each tank, the operators had to go back to the office and connect to a software installed on their computer written in Visual Basic.
Now operators can manage the plant directly from smartphones and tablets while they are checking the plant live without having to go back to the office. They can also access the system from home or on the other side of the world, if there is a stable Internet connection.
The choice of Edge Computing was strategic given the remote location of some plants where the Internet was not easy to access.
Thanks to the Internet we are able to provide debugging and assistance even remotely with the system running, without having to log on site.
