ARIO

The Ario product is a smart device application supported by web-based data management to provide the customer with an augmented reality visualization of their workplace. This allows for visual training, operations, maintenance and troubleshooting activities to take place at workplace sites and on real workplace machines and equipment. It also leverages data from other tools already used and can facilitate assistance from subject matter experts no matter where they are located.

EIQ MOBILITY

eIQ Mobility is a company dedicated to simplifying and accelerating the electrification of fleets, enabling the transformation to zero-emission mobility through optimized planning, delivery and operation of electric mobility services at scale. eIQ Mobility is building a powerful data-driven awareness, decision and planning platform that harvests data from fleets, electric vehicle models, locations, facilities and utilities to solve fleet executive pain around continual planning for and electrification of their fleets. 

FREEWIRE

FreeWire delivers energy whenever and wherever it’s needed for reliable electrification beyond the electrical grid. With products such as the Mobi Gen, Mobi Charger and Boost, FreeWire leverages storage solutions to provide scalable, clean, power that moves to meet demand. FreeWire customers can tackle new applications and deploy new business models without the complexity of upgrading traditional energy infrastructure. 

FREEWIRE

Hyperion has developed a proprietary technology that can digitize large physical high-voltage assets from a single optical fiber. This optical fiber is placed deep within a large high voltage asset covering the critical elements of the asset. From it, the customer is able to get temperature and strain information for every meter along the entire length of the fiber within the asset. A passive insulating component is stimulated using light - completely unaffected by the high electromagnetic fields generated and surrounding these large high voltage components. Once data is generated, the AI engine can track even the smallest changes in temperature and strain, providing valuable insights on asset health and system characteristics.

LIVEEO

LiveEO has developed a solution that utilizes satellite imagery as a primary decision source for assessing and prioritizing vegetation management along the network, as well as an analysis and workflow tool that will enable greater efficiencies through predictive risk-based services versus traditional time-based services. 

STERBLUE

Sterblue is a drone software startup that has developed a cloud-based industrial platform to automate drone inspection for utility companies. It allows the user to upload the raw information about their infrastructures and generate 3D flight plans using geometrical parameters for guiding the drone along trajectories that wrap tightly around structures. The captured data is processed using artificial intelligence algorithms that automatically detect and characterize defects on industrial infrastructure.
